VideoGames & Computer Entertainment was my favorite video games magazine of that era. It was published from 1988 until 1993 before becoming VideoGames and ultimately morphing into Tips & Tricks.

The April 1991 issue includes the following:


  • Under The Hood of the Super Famicom, Part 1 – The Super Famicom represents Nintendo’s leap into the “next generation” of video-game machines. In our first installment, we’ll look at its inner workings and some of the software titles that are currently available in Japan.
  • Sega Champs Square Off In (Not-So-) Sunny Hawaii – Our frontline journalist reports from the Sega Genesis World Championship finals in Waikiki.
  • Veigues Tactical Gladiators Strategy Guide, part II – This month, our resident video-game expert shows us how to regain Federation territory and defeat the alien aggressors.
  • Games Beyond Tomorrow – Arnie guides us through a galaxy of software that goes “where no man has gone before.”
  • Castlevania III Players Guide, Part I – In this installment, Clay shows us how to whip our way through such enemies as skeletons and Medusa heads.
  • Winning The West With Games – The Wild West might already be conquered, but now you can become a binary Billy The Kid.
  • The VG&CE Second Annual Games Survey – Tell us what you think. Voice your computer and video-game choices for the year – what you have and what you’ll be getting.
