Re: Yesterzine - The Literal Magazine Show

The Sega Saturn, Sega's 2nd attempt at a 32-bit sensation and a console about to get repeatedly kicked in the teeth by Sony's storming into the console market. In the meantime though things looked good, Issue 3 of Sega Saturn Magazine brought us one of the all time great arcade conversions, a unique...

Re: Yesterzine - The Literal Magazine Show

Games-X was a weekly games magazine, trying to solve the problem of out of date info before the internet did. It didn't last long. Halfway through its run, the gaming heaven is an adventure game from the company the invented the genre, twice. The gaming hell is what happens when the French try to do...

Re: Yesterzine - The Literal Magazine Show

We're back! In Episode 19, Sega Power comes under the microscope.  The highest scoring game in the issue was their self proclaimed saviour of the Mega CD, but will a 2 year old Amiga game really do the job? The lowest scoring game is the licence for the 2nd most famous Toy movie of the 90s.  And in ...

Re: The 73% Trials

Time to put up or shut up, after an entire series of putting 73% reviews on trial, what would I personally give 7/10 to.

Well here's one, The Incredible Crash Dummies on Master System. I just hope I justify it well enough to avoid jail...

Re: The 73% Trials

Tom Cruise's follow up to Top Gun could not have been more 80s, but to Total, the Game Boy spin off game was absolutely 73.  Was the review a podium winner or embedded in the wall at turn 2?

Re: The 73% Trials

Gunstar Heroes is considered by many to be one of the standout Mega Drive games.  But Sega Power gave it the dreaded 73% on launch.  Do they have good reasoning or was this a reviewer who couldn't be bothered?  Court is in session.

Re: The 73% Trials

In 1994 there were two Mickey Mouse games in as many months. Is that why one of them got 73% in Super Play or were there shenanigans?

The 73% Trials

Amiga Power determined that the lowest score you could give a game without incurring the wrath of the publisher was 73%.  The lazy score.  The "If you like this kind of thing you'll like this" score, the "I played this for 20 minutes" score. So we're finding the 73% reviews and we're putting them, a...

Featuring interviews with both Ian Dransfield of Wireframe and Paul Murphy of Switch Play...

Re: Yesterzine - The Literal Magazine Show

And so episode 2 There are 4 magazines still aimed at children, they range from the slightly cynical to the really very cynical.  But are any of them worth reading?  Please watch since I had to buy one of these in an actual store, which might be the creepiest thing I've done in some time. https://yo...

Nokia "One Day" DVD (2000)

I think this belongs here since it's not gaming but certainly is retro. I discovered another curio in my collection, this time via a relative who worked in the industry. In the year 2000, a time when the 3210 was the hot new thing, Nokia made a DVD called "One Day" about the future of mobiles. They ...
