The Wizard Magazine post was fun, and this was another magazine I found in the box of old magazines. This time it was an Electronic Gaming Monthly, one of the best gaming magazines back in the day. (I also had some Nintendo Powers, if anyone was interested.)

Electronic Gaming Monthly #123 - October 1999

Inner, unfoldable cover - Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation:

Table of Contents:

And in the news for the month:

AT&T Teams up with Sega to present SegaNET!

Nintendo's new mysterious "Dolphin" console (becomes the GameCube) gets some space. Mario is planned for a more mature outing (when did that happen?), and Pac-Man comes to the Neo Geo Pocket Color:

PS2 will not get a modem built-in :( , and Nintendo releases a Tommy Hilfiger Game Boy Color?!

Some previews and reviews:

Slave Zero for Dreamcast:

Zelda Gaiden for N64 (which I'm assuming became Majora's Mask):

N64 previews: Castlevania Special Edition and Jet Force Gemini:

Chrono Cross for PS1:

Final Fantasy VIII for PS1:

And the cover article: Spider-Man:

Some gaming-related action figures that released that month:

Tips & Cheats Section:

Top 20 Games for the Month:

Some ads:

Thousand Arms for PS1:

Final Fantasy VIII for PS1:

Duke Nukem: Zero Hour for N64:

Fighting Force 2:

Soul Calibur for Dreamcast:

Rayman 2:

A completely '90s ad for GameStop:

And an Electronics Boutique ad, when it and GameStop were 2 different stores!

Game prices really haven't changed much.

This is just to show how large gaming magazines used to be. A whopping 267 pages, and there were still some un-numbered ad pages following that!

The back cover, an awesome Dino Crisis ad:

For those curious about the WWF Atttiude insert, I still have it, too! Basically a mini-strategy guide that came free with the magazine.
