Book & Article Excerpts
As promised, we bring you John Szczepaniak’s awesome article on the Genesis, as originally printed in issue #27 of Retro Gamer Magazine. Back in July, John consulted with Sega-16 about the article, and he cited a few of our interviews. We also donated some screen shots, and I must say, the final piece looks great! We’ve reprinted the article here in its entirety (with John’s permission, of course) and even have scans of the actual magazine pages! You know you want to see this, so what are you waiting for? Read the article and enjoy!
