EGM Quartermann’s Q-Letter, Ninth Edition

Ninth edition of EGM Quartermann’s Q-Letter, from the December 1993 issue (Eternal Champions cover). Also between pages 34 and 35.

This will be the last Q-Letter appearing on this site, since I stopped subscribing to EGM at the end of 1993. Hope you’ve enjoyed them!

EGM Quartermann’s Q-Letter, Seventh Edition

This seventh edition of EGM Quartermann’s Q-Letter appears between pages 34 and 35 of the October 1993 issue (Super Street Fighter II cover). Unlike the last few letters, this one is between a two-page ad for a couple of Ascii Sega controllers. I will never understand why companies re-released controllers for the Sega Genesis that were clearly originally designed for the Super Nintendo.

Also of note is that a quarter of the newsletter (the 4 upcoming games on the back) is a rehash from the sixth edition of the previous month.

EGM Quartermann’s Q-Letter, Sixth Edition

Here’s the sixth edition of EGM Quartermann’s Q-Letter, from the September 1993 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly (SF2 Turbo vs. Mortal Kombat cover). It is once again located between pages 34 and 35 (other than the first edition, all the newsletters so far have appeared in this location). Something to note is that on page 34, the review of Shinobi III for the Sega Genesis gave the game a well-deserved “Editor’s Choice – Platinum” award. Enjoy!

EGM Quartermann’s Q-Letter, First Edition

For tonight’s second museum post we have the first installment of the “Q-Letter”, a supplement offered only to subscribers of the video game magazine, Electronic Gaming Monthly. I’ve been going through my prized magazines from the early 1990s (first mentioned here), and I noticed that the digital copies of the magazines I downloaded from the internet did not include these supplements. This scan (and upcoming ones) is my contribution to the preservation of this part of video gaming history.

For the record, this supplement appeared in the April, 1993 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly (Bram Stoker’s Dracula on the cover), in the very beginning, between the cover and first page, splitting the Tiny Toon Adventures, Buster Busts Loose ad.
