Coverdisk Archive – PC Zone

Posted on October 7th, 2016

PC Zone was one of my favourite magazines full of British humour and a total lack of respect for pushy games companies. When a publisher, after a particular honest and brutal review, refused to give them any more game for review (that’ll learn um!)… they simply bought the games and reviewed them in the next issue.

Then there’s Charlie Brooker. Who can forget “The Lara Croft Cruelty Zoo”  (later reprinted as “Doctor Helmut Werstler’s Cruelty Zoo” after it was pulled from the shelves of W.H. Smiths).

It ran from April 1993 until September 2010. Find out more at archive.orgoldgamemags.com/pc-zone/ and magazinesfromthepast.wikia.com/wiki/PC_Zone.

They also annoyingly didn’t label all the cover floppies with a date or issue number. I’ll try work these out from content or other resources as I go. If you can fill in any blanks, let me know.

You can see some of my scans of the first and last issue in PC Zone RIP.
