Hot off the presses: PC Engine Gamer #6

OK, so the latest issue of PC Engine Gamer magazine isn't exactly hot of the presses, as it hit the Internet about a month ago. Still, it's well worth checking out if you're any kind of fan of the sexy little console that took Japan by storm in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The highlights of this particular issue, in my humble opinion: An article about loads of in-the-works homebrew titles and a ton of in-depth reviews (of Golden Axe, P-47, Spin Pair and Tatsujin).

Oh, and there are numerous references to Married ... With Children, which were much appreciated by yours truly.

Enjoy all of the above and more by checking out the sixth issue of PC Engine Gamer here.(Earlier issues of this digital publication can be found here, by the way.)

In related news: The folks at The PC Engine Software Bible--who are responsible for putting together each and every issue of PC Engine Gamer--recently created a rather fabulous 2012 calendar that can be downloaded (for free) at

I just love the thought that someone is putting together a retro magazine with as much love as should have been shown all those years ago. I think that's such a sweet idea!

Me, too, Justin. It's remarkable that the folks at Sunteam have continued to put their hearts and souls into this project for six issues now. Here's hoping they continue to do so for many, many more issues :)

This magazine looks great! Thanks for pointing it out. I would play more PC Engine games, but it's so much easier to use the SNES & Genesis emulators, and the quality's about the same.

Warp: If you haven't already tried it, go out and buy and download the Magic Engine emulator. You have to pay for it, but it is well worth it in my opinion. It's emulated -- perfectly, I might add -- every game I've thrown at it but one, with that game being Madou Monogatari (an Arcade CD title).

Anyway, I'm glad you liked this issue of the magazine. Check out the earlier issues, too, if you haven't done so already :)
