EGM 2 (March 1996)

in retrogaming •  2 months ago  (edited)

The Mid 1990s truly were a golden age for physical video game publications (i.e. magazines). In the case of Electronic Gaming Monthly, one publication a month wasn't even enough (and EGM reached over 300 pages a few times if I recall correctly). So there was EGM 2 (really EGM squared but I'm not sure how to do a superscript). The March 1996 issue of EGM^2 includes:


  • Insert Coin
  • Interface: Letters to the Editor
  • Press Start
  • Previews
  • Tricks of the Trade
  • Strategies
  • Advertising Index


  • International - Trade mech options with other countries in Carnage Heart!
  • Arcade - Battle in the air or on the ground in Virtual On Cyber Troopers!
  • PlayStation - Mortal Kombat II and the's an extremely deadly kombination!
  • Saturn - Own and race a champion racehorse with Winning Post!

It's up to you to help Casper while trying to stop his grotesque relatives. For your aid, we have devoted 12 pages detailing all the tiny intricacies in this game. Of course, for those of you who would like just a hint, take a look at the maps and read only the bold text. however, impatient gamers might want to read the entire guide to help themselves out during a difficult jam and to locate all the cool items, too!

  • Sharks, Snakes, Spiders and Dogs are Just the Beginning of Your Adventure! - Resident Evil is a real nightmare and not because of its huge levels either. In this game, you'll encounter poisonous snakes, bloodthirsty zombies, crazed dogs and even a shark swimming in a flooded room! However if you have EGM2's strategy guide, there is nothing to fear. Inside this eight-pager, there are maps showing you where hints are located, as well as a few survival tips. But don't think we gave everything away. Only the bare essentials to getting out of the mansion are provided...the rest is up to you!

  • Clockwork Knight 2's Spectacular 3-D Graphics Will Wow Gamers! - If you thought Clockwork Knight had stunning graphics, the sequel will blow you away! But don't let the awesome 3-D graphics fool you into believing that the Difficulty Level is low. You'll need EGM's eight-page, info-packed strategy guide to help you through this gigantic game. Everything can be used to stop the bad guys, even trees can be picked up and thrown at the enemies. Also, the secret warps are aplenty in Clockwork Knight 2. Don't forget to check out the awesome tricks that will help you out of dangerous areas.
