• This site is set up to digitally preserve video game magazines from 10 years ago and earlier for defunct magazines, and 15 years ago and earlier for current magazines. The rules for defunct magazines vary on a case-by-case basis. We do this because issues of these magazines are not readily available from publishers/content owners. While we don’t have legal permission, we operate in a way where we do not release anything that will reduce any potential income for you, or magazines that are available from you, nor do we release scans that are of a quality that may reflect poorly on you. So far this has worked, with several publishers/content owners basically ignoring our existence. However, if you wish that we do not make content that you legally have ownership available on this site, just let us know and we will remove it. While we would prefer permission, we will fully oblige with your wishes concerning your content. This is a hobby we do out of passion and love for the video game magazines of yesterday, and not worth legal battles of any kind.

      I guess I shouldn't mention that the next issue I have not only has P.E. on the cover, it also has 25 pages of strategy, an ad for the game, an ad for the strategy guide to the game, reviews of the game, and a fold out poster as well.  No, I'd better not even bring that up, especially since it'll probably be quite a while till I get to it, since I've decided to put scanning on the back burner for a while so I can use my free time to actually play a game for once (That DOS thread got me pumped up to finally give Might and Magic III a shot.  So sue me - I haven't had time to play a single game since August of last year.  I think I deserve it.)    But I'm sure I'll get to that mag eventually, though probably not next.

      Yeah, that...that's probably for the best you not bring that up. At all. Ever. F-for any reason... :cry:

    • Kind of surprised by the lower end of the review scores for Resident Evil 2: 65, 75, 80, 90.  Also interesting that Tomb Raider 2 got the highest single score in the mag (95), considering the near total apathy towards foreign titles in Japan (other than Tomb Raider 2 and a 2-page preview of French-developed Nightmare Creatures, this issue doesn't cover any non-Japanese games).

      On the scanning front, this issue presented a couple of pains in my ass:

      1. 11 double-page joins
      2. Someone had apparently used the back cover as a cutting board for slicing up something with an exacto knife, so not only was the back cover cut to shreds, but the last 5 or so pages also had cuts through them in various places, requiring quite a bit of reconstructive editing.
