Vintage Magazine Scans for TSS, EB, and SSS

Postby Kizyr » Mon Jan 20, 2014 5:19 am

Thanks to forum member liquidpolicenaut, we have dozens more scans of vintage magazine articles from 1992 through 1996. This includes previews and reviews of The Silver Star and Eternal Blue for the Sega CD before they ever even arrived in the US, previews of Silver Star Story for the Saturn (while it was still expected that it would be released in the US in 1996-1997 on the Saturn), and even a mention of Lunar: Walking School for the Game Gear!

A few highlights:
- Screenshot-heavy previews of TSS from 1993-1994
- Reviews of EB from late 1995
- Rare mention of Walking School in 1996
- Interview with Game Arts COO from December 1996
- Articles speculating on the US release of SSS in 1996

Our "Artwork: Media" sections for all those games have now been updated. Check out the new old articles here!

Huh. I wonder how Laike got a first name in that one article? :D

"Peter Laike", heh!
(This is the March 1994 Sega Visions article, if anyone else is wondering) KF

I remember an article on Lunar Legend that called Alex "Mag" in a table of spells. Probably some template had been reused and not all names had been changed. I think there was something funky with Nash's name too. (Sadly, I didn't have a scanner available at the time and the magazine didn't belong to me, so I only got b&w photocopies which I think I later scanned.)

I think that same article may have referred to "Luc" in place of Laike, as this was before Ubi was permitted to use WD's names. Wish I could remember the other interim names; I think Fidy or Phaidy (Quark) was probably one of them.
