Amiga Power had a last issue, and it knew it. So it's a magazine with a plot, as the staff are hunted down by the 4 cyclists of the apocalypse, the only lesser deities committed to a program of rigorous consumer testing in order to pay for their crimes against the Amiga.

Yesterzine was there, and with the help of no less than 8 guest voices we take you live to the trials of Stuart Campbell and Jonathan Davies to discover if AP really were guilty of machineicide. Somewhere in the middle of this there's some games, Alien Breed 3D2 is the most ambitious attempt to "do" Doom the Amiga got before it got Doom and Kick Off 96 is the last word in the Amiga's 2nd best known football game series. But do either of them succeed?

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.

And Episode 3

Indie mags have to fund themselves any way they can.  Of the 4 in this issue, one is sold in shops, one you can't buy at all, one takes subs via patreon and one is currently running a kickstarter.

Featuring interviews with both Ian Dransfield of Wireframe and Paul Murphy of Switch Player/Ninty Fresh, the best of the independent magazines are put under the microscope.

Who wants Clickbait?!

3 facts related to Sega that not everyone knows...

As a side note, all 3 subjects of this video were captured direct from hardware.

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 the cover feature, the 4 attempts to use video games to sell cheesy heart attacks in a bag...

Games-X was a weekly games magazine, trying to solve the problem of out of date info before the internet did.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 Space Harrier.

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 version of one of Sega's classics and.... the single worst use of FMV in the entire world ever...

Movie licences, tricky buggers. Super Play Issue 13 had 2 of them, one the biggest licence of the 90s and somehow one the biggest licence of the 2010s. They faired... differently.

Meanwhile there is a fight to the death between 2 SNES driving games both based on Amiga originals. How do they match up on both machines and which one has withstood the last 3 decades intact?

The Commodore 64, the machine that thinks colours should be seen and not heard. This could be a problem when the gaming heaven is a cartoony arcade port and the gaming hell is from the very top tier of cartoon licences.

Meanwhile we take a snapshot in time from possibly the turn of the decade's biggest publisher.

The Amiga Power trilogy concludes and this time there's no way to frame them as the good guys, 3 terrible crimes in 3 consecutive issues mean they absolutely deserve to have all been murdered in issue 65. We hear their pleas for mitigation as the gaming heaven gets personal and the gaming hell is every NES owner's best friend...

I'm a big fan of Yesterzine and its offshoots, particularly trying to correctly anticipate where the mum joke is coming in each edition. Long may you continue!

Aww thanks.

Although that particular game is I'm afraid going to be fairly easy in this issue.

The most important video game system launch of all time. Gaming's once and forever mainstream breakthrough. But as the Playstation hit the UK in late 1995 were the games there? And when are 9 Demos not 9 demos?
