Ads: Alien 3 SNES

One of the things I love about the Ultraverse comics are the advertisements. Games that were cutting edge in the 1990s look pretty silly now, but I get a good kick of nostalgia from them.

I collect old games from several different systems, mainly Nintendo 64, Dreamcast and the original PlayStation, but I dabble in the Super Nintendo stuff. Most ads from the Ultraverse books were from the Super Nintendo days. This was one of the lonely ads in Hardcase 1 (most of the full-page ads in there were house ads).

If I saw “red-hot alien action” or “chest-bursting excitement” on an ad for a game today, I might be a little wary. Current graphics can sometimes be too realistic.
