Skipping ahead from July, here’s the September 1992 issue of Video Games & Computer Entertainment. Googling the August 1992 issue and seeing a cover I’m unfamiliar with, it would seem that I never received it. Either that or my brain is starting to delete memories in its old age.
Some highlights include a report from the Tokyo Toy Show, a recap of the first ever CES open to the public, and a review of Wolfenstein 3D. It is always interesting to look back and see how people viewed history as it was being made. The game was definitely a hit, receiving a 9 out of 10, but to the reviewer it was “merely” a great game and a worthy successor to the previous incarnation rather than the revolutionary step in gaming that we now view it as. There’s no mention of it on the cover, and the review is buried at the end of the magazine, three months after the game’s release. Very interesting indeed.
A sad note is that apparently the Game Doctor section ended in the August 1992 issue, with Q&A taking its place. I wonder what happened? Unless someone else scans and makes available the August 1992 issue, I guess I’ll never know.
