Electronic Gaming Monthly Issue #1 - May 1989 | CGQ

Classic Gaming Quarterly Follow
  • Video description
  • 12 months ago
Episode 65 - The very first (monthly) issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly! Technically, this is the second issue of EGM, because it was beaten to newsstands by their 1989 Buyers Guide, but this was the first regular issue, and is according to EGM, issue #1. The magazine is obviously very NES-heavy due to the time in which it was released.

Show Notes:

- “Where is episode 64?” It is a Patreon and channel member-exclusive episode of Let’s Read. Going forward, every other episode in the series will be available exclusively to supporters.

- Yes, the overhead camera is shaking a bit. I am going to see what I can do to stop it.

- All of the NES game footage was recorded using actual hardware, but going forward I will probably use a MiSTer FPGA console, instead. You won’t be able to tell the difference, but it will make things much easier for me.

- The footage of the Amiga and C64 games were recorded using a MiSTer.

- The blurred footage that plays during the end credits came about because the camera was still rolling, unbeknownst to me, when I ended the episode. I thought it would be a neat change from the usual gameplay footage.

Video game footage featured on Classic Gaming Quarterly is recorded using either actual game hardware or FPGA-based systems, unless otherwise noted. For episodes 1-34, it was recorded in s-video using am RGB to s-video encoder and a DVD recorder. As of episode 35, it was recorded from actual hardware over RGB, upscaled using either an XRGB Mini Framemeister or an Open-Source Scan Converter (OSSC), and captured on either an Elgato Game Capture HD or a Startech USB 3.0 capture device. Beginning with episode 59, I started using FPGA systems like the Mega SG, Super NT, and MiSTer, which all offer cycle-accurate hardware emulation. All videos are edited on a Mac using Final Cut Pro X.
