The August issue came direct from E3, with the first look at important games like Banjo and Goldeneye, as well as many, many more. UK reviews were thin on the ground on this issue, with Blast Corps the only UK release - although MRC, Hexen,Go Go!! Troublemakers and Dark Rift getting import reviews. Tim also showcased his E3 diary, which gave a good idea of what his week was like in Atlanta. The magazine also kicked off its Mario Kart 64 championship, with the aim to track down the best Mario Kart player in the UK. The magazine concluded its overview of the games markets, with a look at Europe.
