This one's for my fellow Aussie gamers - Mega Zone was my favourite local video game magazine from my youth (I was in my teens at the time), and I collected it with a passion... In fact, I even had a letter printed in two issues over the years.
Unfortunately, I also was stupid enough to get rid of them all when I got a little older, which is a little heartbreaking... This one I picked up on eBay, as I couldn't resist - it's from August 1993. Part of me wants to collect them all again, but I think I would struggle to find enough other collectors with issues laying around... .
Mega Zone was published from 1989 to 1995. Initially, Mega Zone covered all platforms, but around 1993 it switched to covering only Sega platforms (which maybe explains why I was a Sega kid). At this point, the editor who had been in charge while Mega Zone was a multi-platform magazine split off and started his own magazine - Hyper, which is still in circulation today. I was an avid collector of Hyper for a while too, but Mega Zone has all the nostalgic feels for me... The good old days.
