S.W.A.T.Pro
[ Publisher: IDG Communications | Price: $4.95 | Format: Multi Console ]
Today we're taking a look at S.W.A.T.Pro, GamePro's very first spin-off. This bi-monthly publication featured reviews, cheats and strategies that largely game from the flagship publication. Find out what all this means when you watch today's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas.



Excerpt: Let me introduce you to SWATPro. This was a short-lived bi-monthly magazine that combined content originally found in GamePro with ... well ... more content originally found in GamePro. All the tips, tricks, tactics, strategies, reviews and even advertisements come straight out of GamePro. Just about the only thing not copied and pasted is this editorial, and even this may have been lifted from somewhere else.

On Tomorrow's Episode: Come back tomorrow when we'll take a look at EGM's Video Game Buyer's Guide, an annual publication that featured system reviews. We'll dig into that on Monday's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas. Still want more? Don't forget to check out last year's 29 Questionable Power-Ups of Christmas. And don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, that way you'll never miss a video. See you tomorrow.
