Today I went to a flea market where I sometimes go on Sundays. This place is mainly filled with antiques, porcelain, books and interior decorations. I’ve never seen any games or electronics there, it’s more vintage stuff, but I like that too ^_^ However today I found something gaming related! I saw a stand filled with old comic books from the early 90’s, like the Phantom and Modesty Blaise (which in Swedish is Agent X9) and I thought of my friend Gabriella who likes Modesty ^_^ I picked one up and saw an old ad for Sega on the back!I thought this was so cool that I had to go through the backs of every magazine they had to see if there were more! And there was!!! I ended up buying 10 magazines with gaming ads on the back and I thought I would share them here. Even if they are in Swedish I hope you all can enjoy it, I will translate the ridiculous slogans they had ;D
First of all here are the magazines I bought, Modesty Blaise sure does look cool ^_^
“I hate all environmental criminals!” Sonic promoting Global gladiators..
“He is almost as cool as I am” Sonic promoting Cool Spot
“Cooooooool summer games”... they almost got it right, I don’t care much for the Tournament Golf >_<
“Flipper, the ocean is not big enough for the both of you”.. yeah, I get it… cause Flipper the dolphin was a big thing back then too ^^
“LYNX – a new portable computer-game in color!” and in the key selling points they are listing: pause button, power adaptor and built in joypad.. isn’t that kind of … obvious things??
“No other 16-bit video game has as many… 80 strong games.” 4 new games per month! wow.. that’s a bit less.. than today ;D
“The worlds fastest video game character is returning in a neck-breaking game for Mega Drive – SONIC 2!!” I really hope the kids didn’t actually break their necks though…
“Now there’s over 100 16-bit games for the Mega Drive! No other system has more!”
“This is where the adventure starts”
