    For a few years anyway, one issue enough just wasn’t enough for Electronic Gaming Monthly. So they came up with EGM 2 (EGM^2…whatever). Each one was in the neighborhood of 200 pages most months and sometimes larger. The August 1994 issue of EGM 2 includes:

    • Knuckle Down with the Latest Installment in the Sonic Series! – We’ve got the scoop on Sega’s latest step in technology, the add-on cart Sonic & Knuckles. You can now play as that ornery critter from Sonic 3. There are more techniques for players to master, like Knuckles’ gliding and wall-scaling maneuvers. Of course, Dr. Robotnik is here once again to make sure both of these boys have a rough time. You’ll have a ball visiting all-new levels and learning the secrets of the game. Sonic fans all across the glob won’t want to miss it.
    • Put On Your Driving Gloves and Goggles for Daytona USA – Start your engines racing fans! Daytona USA is crashing into the arcade!
