MST3K In Electronic Gaming Monthly

March’s issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) contains a subtle, comic-style homage to MST3K. In a two-page puzzle illustration full of sci-fi and video game references, one can find Crow, Tom, Dr. F, and TV’s Frank leaning up against the bar, apparently enjoying some nice space jam. It’s easy to miss, but it’s in the bottom-right corner of page 94, if you feel like looking for yourself.

Now, as a devout gamer and a subscriber to EGM, you would think that I would have been one of the first people to notice this. Sadly, I merely skimmed the issue and spent barely a second looking at the large drawing that this it a part of. Satellite News spotted it a while ago. Sigh. Fortunately, the artist posted the full piece on his LiveJournal. It’s quite cool, if you’re a nerd like me.

  1. This is awesome. All the fun of Where’s Waldo, only with Forrester’s neon green labcoat making the search so much easier. *grins*

    EGM is a fine magazine. All I have right now is a subscription to Game Informer, but only because I can get one for $5.

    Hey, I’m cheap. It allows me to buy more things!

  2. To be honest, I don’t really read game magazines much anymore. I get all the info I could ever want between sites like Destructoid, Kotaku, and GamePolitics, so they just don’t have much to offer me in print.

    And in case you’re wondering, my subscription to EGM was free. I’m not that wasteful. :)
