  1. Play Online No.011 (April 1999)

    Once again, this is the most hardcore serious gaming mag to ever hit the shelves in Japan.  I'd wager not a single reader of this mag has any plastic figurines of half-naked anime girls on their shelf or so much as a single item of Nintendo-related memorabilia in their possession.  Nope, this mag targets adults, and not the kind that plays x-rated visual novels, either.
    On a side note, this issue was the glue-iest magazine I've ever seen.  There was glue all over the pages, so much so that even after debinding, I had to cut away portions of the page that had glue spilled all over them so it wouldn't damage my scanner and then reconstruct those missing bits in Photoshop.  The end result is just as pretty as always, never fear.

  2. Tech Gian Issue 019 (May 1998)

    ADULTS ONLY.  In addition to the previews of the bazillion and one adult games released every month in Japan, this issue's highlight might just be a feature article which covers the history of adult animated videos in Japan, discussing the highlights and providing what I assume is a thorough release list of videos released from 1984-1997.  You know, in case you've got an urge to "collect em all" and the only jigglypuffs you're interested aren't the Pokemon variety.
    I uploaded an ISO rip of the cover disc at the Internet Archive here: https://archive.org/details/techgian019may1998   Be aware that getting the demos to run on a modern computer is going to be troublesome, since they were designed for Win95.  But it's there nonetheless.

  3. Famitsu Issue 0669 (October 12, 2001)

    Scanned 6 months ago, I've finally gotten around to finishing the editing on this.  But what's an extra 6 months when you've been already been waiting since 2001 to get a copy of this issue? 😋  And remember, if you enjoy scans like this, be sure to click the "like" button .  It's such a small thing to do, but your scanners will greatly appreciate it, I assure you. (Just be sure do do it here at Retromags where we'll see it, not somewhere else like a new release post on facebook or twitter)

  11. Family Computer Magazine Issue 056 (May 6, 1988)

    Family Computer Magazine is (unlike most other Japanese magazines) printed in Japanese right-to-left format.  For those unaware, that means that the front cover is where the back cover is on a Western magazine, and thus the spine is on the right side.  Once opened, the pages are read beginning with the page on the right and moving across to the left page.  When using a CBR reader to read a single page at a time, this won't cause too many problems, but if you put the reader into two-page mode, the left and right facing pages will be in the wrong order.  Thus, it is strongly suggested that when reading this magazine, you set your CBR reader to it's Japanese mode (almost all CBR readers have one for reading manga), which will automatically display the pages in the correct order.
    For anyone unfamiliar with this mag - it was the first Famicom/NES magazine in the world, predating Famitsu by a year.  And although Famitsu would ultimately end up out-lasting Family Computer Magazine by expanding their coverage to all consoles, from a collector's viewpoint, issues of Famimaga (as it is usually referred to) seem to typically be more desireable/valuable than Famitsu issues of similar vintage.

    The front and back cover of this mag were in pretty gruesome condition.  I've done what I could.
    Also, please note that while the mag itself is complete, I believe this issue shipped with a supplement covering part of Final Fantasy VI, which was not included with my copy.

    Well, I had intended on releasing these in the order I scanned them, but the first issue I scanned is on hold while the cut-off dates in the database wait to be fixed. So for now you get an issue from a couple years earlier - in this case the start of 1999 with the first of what promises to be many Gundam covers.

    As this is the first issue of D.P. to be put up, I'll say that my general impression is that in contrast to most English magazines, it devotes a large chunk of its coverage to in-depth strategy sections, as opposed to short previews of upcoming games (though of course it has those too.) There is an insane amount of information in these issues and were anyone inclined to actually read every word from cover to cover, it would probably take twice as long as an American mag of the same length.

    Lotsa good stuff this issue.  The main features:
    Parasite Eve (25 pages and a poster!) Resident Evil 2 (18 pages) Tekken 3 (10 pages) Xenogears (8 pages) Bushido Blade 2 (6 pages) Final Fantasy V (6 pages) By the way, the fold-out poster I stitched together looks pretty great.  If anyone is interested in having a full-size copy (much bigger than the one included in this file), I uploaded it here: https://mega.nz/#!EBxjzCpS!Yv2RRJsutCUNNUuPDZxjs8-MBHFzbfOzmRO0JX6KfnE
    It's full 600dpi at 6026x9100px and could be printed out as an actual poster by a printing service if you were so inclined.

    Lots of good stuff this issue including in-depth strategy sections for Resident Evil 2, Tomb Raider 2, Tales of Destiny and Xenogears.
    Other games include Parasite Eve, Final Fantasy V, Gran Turismo, Bushido Blade 2, Tenchu, and as always, tons of coverage of games that never saw a western release.

    ADULT CONTENT
    This issue: 2 words (for our resident warrior nun): DIVI DEAD
    I uploaded the demo disc to the Internet Archive here: https://archive.org/details/TechGianApril1998
    Be warned that it is designed for WIN95 PCs, so unless you have experience running WIN95 software on modern machines, you'll be unlikely to get most of the demos working.

    Featuring lots of games for the PlayStation, Dreamcast, Saturn, and PC that you've probably never heard of since not a single one of them made it out of Japan.  Every single one of them containing a cast of anime girls that squeal "KYAAAA!!!" when your character accidentally trips and falls against them, grabbing two handfuls of breasts as he catches himself.😀

    So what do you do if you're Japanese but you don't want to play yet another game as a spiky haired androgynous orphan on a quest to fulfill your destiny to save the world?  You play some non-Japanese PC games, that's what.
