19 years of intellectual imagery available for browsing

This doesn't really count as news, but it's quite interesting, and from elsewhere in the Future family - Edge has put up (nearly) every cover it's ever had since launching in 1993, and it's a fascinating gallery of yesterday's future.

You can marvel at the misguided (the execrable Amiga fighter Rise of the Robots) the inexplicable (a promo shot of Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible which apparently relates to N64) and the, um, edgy (the bleeped-out Xbox debut, which we've helpfully attached to this article).

It's quite a nice format, too, so you don't have spend ages clicking through it. Give it a look.
