Do Go On
1990s video game magazines are (rightfully, perhaps) remembered with little more than ridicule. But those of us who grew up with them still love their overly aggressive, poorly layed-out and sometimes puerile charm. Tune in for erudite commentary hilarious one-liners, found vaporware footage and more!

Poorly laid out? You mean awesome!

Also, some of these are obvious spoofs. People had a sense of humor back then!

The one where you'll remove organs to embed your game system is a total piss take. Where would you put the cartridge?

Oh! Yeah that was a Target ad.

They might have claimed it was a Target ad, but what it really is is nightmare fuel. Guh.

Not sure if it is worth mentioning, but I just went back and tagged all the posts and the queue.
