Heaps of really old issues in there including issue #1. The best bit are the old ads and tech articles. MMX The Future of Gaming!

Wow. First one I randomly clicked on was from 2004 and even then I feel like that was several years past the point I'd forgotten magazines even existed. The cover was a LOTR game. I feel old.

Few of mine up there, which is cool cause when I moved house last week I have no idea what I did with the old issues I saved and always planned on scanning to keep an archive (you know, for like 10 years =p)

The old trick jumps were easier to do with high FPS and looking down when doing them.

Heh yeh I remember that, I went out and bought two Orchid 12MB Voodoo 2 from John Chan the next week, just for Unreal. I think I had a Pentium 100 in those days, with the earth shattering new MMX2 instruction set that was going to revolutionise gaming. :)

I don't suppose many of the old guys remember John, such a lovely guy, only to be callously murdered a few years later at such a young age.

No worries mate :D

Absolute nostalgia overload happening here on my end. I used to love reading my PC Powerplays and thought I'd lost them forever. The holy grail would be for some Megazone scans to surface.

Very cool, nice one dude!

I used to read a lot of PC Powerplay and I think I was in the IRC channels too.

Can still remember Diablo, Starcraft and Duke Nukem 3D blowing my mindhole.
