It was the good old days when you get all your info only in magazines and the internet isn't widespread enough.
There was also a time when Nemesis from RE3 was described to be "as relentless as the T-1000 from Terminator 2" (paraphrasing) but then a magazine writer misinterpret it as "Nemesis will be a liquid metal creature".
But yeah, I mostly read magazines like Electronic Gaming Monthly or EGM2.
There was another one that I forgot its name but the Devil May Cry article was in one of them.
I should have mentioned that I still did read Gaming Magazines at the time, it's just that in DMC1's case I mainly looked at web previews or web articles.
- GameFan (Premium, though... those magazines were quality)
- Next Generation (Another premium magazine with qualtiy, but its more informative than "flashy"?)
- Nintendo Power
- Sega Visions
- Mega Play, I think it was...?
Never heard or read the permium stuff.
My reads were usually:
GamePro - Which I liked less as the years went on.
GameInformer - Hated them from early 2005 and so on.
Electronic Gaming Monthly - One of my favorites.
1Up - One of my other favorites. EGM & 1Up I would read the most.
