Electronic Game Player on PC Engine
« on: November 15, 2019, 04:11:52 AM »
Hello all.   

Electronic Game Player issue 3 from July/August 1988.   EGP later became EGM.



https://retrocdn.net/File:EGP_US_03.pdf

I've always wanted to see that.   Because of the following letter sent to EGM, in their January 1991 issue.



See the guy that wrote to EGM saying another magazine had the first report on the PC Engine in an April 1989 issue?
That was Video Games & Computer Entertainment, April 1989.



We are talking about magazines in the U.S. where we usually got info after the rest of the world and well after the UK did in their magazines (like CVG and others).

So anyway I thought it would be good to share this here.

Wow! I can't wait for a U.S. release. It looks very promising.

..... a unique shooter called Necromancer.

Lolwut?

Also, if the hueys were made by an outside source, who made them and why couldn't NEC make them themselves?  There were various companies making bootlegs, unlicensed games, beecards years earlier, etc. so they obviously weren't terribly hard to make.
