MacAddict (June 1999)

in #retrocomputing18 days ago (edited)

There can be do doubt that the late 1990s/early 2000s were the best of times for Apple's Macintosh line. MacAddict was essentially the Macintosh version of Boot (now Maximum PC). It covered Macs with an almost religious fervor. It was an excellent magazine if you were a Mac lover. The June 1999 issue includes:


  • We Got Game - The Mac gaming market is about to explode with a slew of hot Mac titles, new-to-the-Mac developers, and simultaneous platform releases! In our preseason exclusive report, we give you the stats on all the major industry players and fill you in on their secret game plans.

  • The Great Graphics Cliche Giveaway - We're such a sneaky bunch! This month we tricked three professional artists into revealing their trademark illustration secrets, then turned around and printed them as step-by-step how-tos complete with screen shots! What else would you expect from a former Prison Guy?

  • XXIII Reasons You Should Care About Mac OS X Server - OS X Server - why should you give a rat's behind about it?
