The End of an Era

I recently heard the sad news that Tips and Tricks magazine has finally gone to that big magazine rack in the sky. For a few years, I had the pleasure of being a Contributing/Freelance editor for them. In my opinion, arguably the best strategy guide writers in the biz.

What an upbeat way to start up my blog, eh? Well, my blog is intended to discuss mostly game design issues, but considering Tips and Tricks played an indirect role in guiding me toward my current path in the video game industry, I felt this was the least I could do.

On the other hand, the least Hideo Kojima could do for Tips and Tricks was actually place a copy of the magazine into Metal Gear 3: Snake Eater. How cool is that? Check it out if you haven’t.

On that note, I want to leave you with the best strategy guide I ever wrote for Tips and Tricks. *Tooting my own horn ALERT* I took a lot of pride in writing this strategy because at the time I held the official Arcade Daytona USA world record in the Beginner and Advanced tracks. Enjoy.

Wtf?! All those times you said you would play people for money in Daytona USA, you were actually serious??

You claim to hold the world records for Daytona USA but have you ever won a Daytona USA machine at E3? I think the official arcade racing game championship score is Wizard 1, Shirts 0. Not hating. Just truthificating.

Old issues of Tips and Tricks are some of my most valued gaming mags. Before came along, Tip and Tricks had it all, glamour, fame, the respect of frustrated gamers and cheaters around the world.

Plus it had nice art direction and pretty cool covers. I still remember the first issue sporting Raiden from the first Mortal Kombat game.

I salute you and your involvement with one of my all time favourite gaming mags (the others being the original EGM, EDGE and HYPER).
