Mixnmojo looks at PC Format's LEC special
Posted by RemiO @ 11:50 BST ( Comments 0 )
Mixnmojo has a new feature where they look at PC Format's 1994 LEC special. There are a lot of interesting stuff, including an interview with the now EMI project leads, Sean Clark and Mike Stemmle.

The MI feature is worth a read, although I could swear PC Format gave MI2 95%, not 91%. Update: I was of course thinking of Amiga Format. Duh.
