Posted on 26th February, 2021

The next, next generation was here, but the Dreamcast was dead in under 2 years.  While we trying to work out just what the bloody hell happened, the gaming heaven is a very un-Dreamcast game and the Gaming Heaven is a legend in disguise.  And elsewhere, the most infamous magazine coverdisk of all time.

The most important video game system launch of all time. Gaming's once and forever mainstream breakthrough. But as the Playstation hit the UK in late 1995 were the games there? And when are 9 Demos not 9 demos?



Yesterzine 24 : "Fighting Through Idiots"

Posted on 18th December, 2020

The Amiga Power trilogy concludes and this time there's no way to frame them as the good guys, 3 terrible crimes in 3 consecutive issues mean they absolutely deserve to have all been murdered in issue 65.  We hear their pleas for mitigation as the gaming heaven gets personal and the gaming hell is every NES owner's best friend...



Yesterzine 23 : "The Ghosts of Toilets Past"

Posted on 12th December, 2020

The Commodore 64, the machine that thinks colours should be seen and not heard. This could be a problem when the gaming heaven is a cartoony arcade port and the gaming hell is from the very top tier of cartoon licences.


Meanwhile we take a snapshot in time from possibly the turn of the decade's biggest publisher.




Movie licences, tricky buggers.  Super Play Issue 13 had 2 of them, one the biggest licence of the 90s and somehow one the biggest licence of the 2010s.  They faired... differently.

Posted on 20th November, 2020



Games-X was a weekly games magazine, trying to solve the problem of out of date info before the internet did.  It didn't last long.  Halfway through its run, the gaming heaven is an adventure game from the company the invented the genre, twice.  The gaming hell is what happens when the French try to do Space Harrier.

Yesterzine Episode 19 - "Yes, I WILL supersize"

Posted on 13th November, 2020

We're back!


In Episode 19, Sega Power comes under the microscope.  The highest scoring game in the issue was their self proclaimed saviour of the Mega CD, but will a 2 year old Amiga game really do the job? The lowest scoring game is the licence for the 2nd most famous Toy movie of the 90s.  And in the cover feature, the 4 attempts to use video games to sell cheesy heart attacks in a bag...
