I’m plugging another gap in the PC Zone scans with issue 48 from March 1997. The headline review is Ecstatica II which seems strange in a month that also features Diablo. I know which one is better remembered now (even if I would rather play Ecstatica myself). There’s not much else I’ve actually played in this other than Phantasmagoria 2 which was great fun for a fan of cheesy 80’s horror like myself.

I wanted a nice, short magazine to scan so this week’s PC Zone is Issue 30 from September 1995. The highlight for me is the preview of The Darkening but I’ve no doubt already posted that on here. You also get reviews of Simon The Sorcerer 2, Space Quest 6, Dungeon Master 2 and Terminal Velocity. I’ll resume the normal order next week when hopefully I should have a bit more time. The PDF is in with all the other scans so far at http://www.pixsoriginadventures.co.uk/PCZone
This weeks PC Zone scan is issue 46. It’s lengthy enough clocking in at nearly 200 pages but doesn’t actually cover any games that interest me particularly. Presumably all the really big hitters made it out before Xmas. It’s another off the list anyway and can be downloaded here along with all the others that have been scanned so far.
The one scan a week schedule appears to be working out so far. I’m reasonably confident I’ll keep this up until I run out of issues which will be late in the year. I’m missing issue 48 so the usual call goes out if anyone has that one.
