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?

Todayzine will show you each of the surprisingly high number of paper magazines on gaming you can still buy in the UK.  In episode 1 we cover off the ones everyone knows with the 4 titles still published by giant megacorp Future.

Features the editor of this very publication giving us his thoughts on paper magazines and his personal favourites from the golden age.

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.
