Super NES Buyer's Guide
[ Publisher: Sendai Publishing | Price: $3.95 | Format: Super NES ]
Today we're taking a look at Super NES Buyer's Guide, Sendai Publishing's response to Nintendo's 16-bitter. This bi-monthly magazine ran for three years and covered almost all of the Super Nintendo's life. Find out if it's better than Mega Play when you tune into today's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas.



Excerpt: Seeing the success of Mega Play, Sendai Publishing quickly pieced together a companion guide that reviewed the launch titles, previewed upcoming games and even offered a few cheat codes. They did this by recycling content from the August 1991 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly. And they didn't just copy a few previews and tips, they reused everything.
