Blast Corps arrived just in time for an import review. The magazine also looked at the goings-on at the Tokyo Show and had a big review of Wave Race 64. Game guides kicked off in earnest this issue. Of special note was Zy’s guide to getting 70 stars as quickly as possible in Mario 64, which eventually became a fully detailed guide of the game over the next few issues. The magazine also looked at some of the major players in Nintendo’s history, and how the company came from humble beginnings to become the major force in videogame history.
