N64 would be a bit of a waste of paper. PSM would be a better bet, overall PS1 had a bigger impact and more likely to drive sales.
Yes, but N64 Magazine was held up as one of the all time classic magazines, in line with Super Play, Crash, Zapp etc. PSM magazine can't even be mentioned in the same breath.

I just don't see how they can do it without covering the same old games again, N64 just doesn't have the range of titles as PS1 to give us something new and interesting to read. Great that they're bringing a new mag, but what's the point of yet another Mario 64/Wave Race/Zelda feature?
I guess that's an advantage C&VG holds, it covers a range of systems across a much wider time period so has potential for much more new content.

Looks like its Super Play which is awesome from my perspective, have never read an issue, but have 60 issues of its successor mag which I love, and with SNES mini coming out this month it fits in really well.

To my knowledge everyone will be receiving it. I've heard nothing to suggest otherwise.

for me the best issue in a while. Although:

I'm 99% certain I had a copy of Zaxxon for the BBC micro, but it wasn't mentioned?

Any talk of Aliens surely needs to include the superb Aliens WAD for the original Doom!!
