Today we're taking a look at NewType Gaming, the magazine for the competitive game player. It's a lot like all the other magazines on the market, only this magazine is in black and white. Learn more about this curiosity on this new episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas.



Excerpt: Back in 1993, Bryan M. Datu had a dream to create the ultimate video game magazine. It would be the ultimate magazine for the competitive game player and feature full-color pictures of all the hottest games. It would be rad! Unfortunately, Bryan didn't have a lot of money to throw at this project and came up with the short-lived curiosity, Newtype Gaming. Things started rocky, with Bryan's masterpiece filling up a mere 18 unmarked pages. The magazine was filled with black and white images, reviews of outdated games and a layout that looks like it was assembled on a Canon word processor from 1988.

On Tomorrow's Episode: Come back tomorrow when we'll take a look at S.W.A.T.Pro, GamePro's very first spin-off. Is this another homerun for the home of Slow Mo and Toxic Tommy?
