This one’s just for the lulz.
Ever wanting to be first to break an exclusive news item, Gamepro posted this in their March 1994 issue:
Assuming the latest installment of a franchise for a tv series would otherwise have been a good guess, especially with the rave reviews X was getting in those days. Eventually the season 2 episode Mega X would prove them half right.
In November 1994’s issue they made this follow-up report:
(I need to work on my sarcasm.)
According to Wikipedia, the show started airing on September 11 of 1994. I wonder if that means they write their monthly magazines 2 months in advance or so? I guess that seems about right, but they could have figured that by the time people were reading the magazine they’d probably be more familiar already…
So did I really just make a post to make fun of a 15 year old typo? Yes, I sure did. This is exactly the kind of thing that the internet was built for. Possibly.
In the future I’ll have to remember to do less Wednesday posts.
