  3. Play Online No.008 (January 1999)

    Here's another issue of a rare niche mag that was made for the hardest of the hardcore - Japanese PC gamers who want to play real games, not just click-fests full of anime girls.  As such, almost all of the coverage centers on Western games, including interviews with Western developers (this issue has a 4-page interview with Sid Meier.)
    In addition to the usual previews and reviews, this issue features extensive strategy sections for Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator, Half-Life, Baldur's Gate, and F-22 Total Air War.

  4. Tech Gian Issue 011 (September 1997)

    Adult content: covers adult games for the PC and consoles.

    Please note that the demo CD-ROM included between pages 2 and 5 is counted as pages 3 and 4 in the issue's pagination.

    I have uploaded the CD-ROM to the Internet Archive here: https://archive.org/details/TechGian1997Sep
    This CD-ROM is designed to work in a 16-bit Windows environment, so it will not run on 64-bit versions of Windows unless emulating a 16-bit operating system.

  12. Play Online No.006 (November 1998)

    To coincide with the release of Ultima Online: the Second Age, this issue features a lengthy interview with Richard Garriot in additional to a feature covering the game itself.
    There is also a 21-page feature on flight sims.
    Always a pleasure, this month's "English Conversation For Network Games" article teaches Japanese players how to speak in the faux Shakespearean English used in Ultima games.  As someone who teaches English in Japan, it amuses me to think of Japanese players barely competent in English trying to greet foreign players using some of the phrases covered:
    "Hail, honored knight of Chaos!"
    "Well met, sir!"
    "Fortune guard thy steps, m'lord!"

  13. Play Online No.005 (October 1998)

    Again, it's interesting to me how hardcore this magazine is.  Admittedly it can seem a bit dry if you just want to look at pictures, but it's also refreshing that it isn't full of promotional fluff like most game mags - this mag focuses on information meant for hardcore PC game enthusiasts.  When you consider that many of the games being discussed aren't even available in Japanese (the coverage of the PC release of Final Fantasy VII laments the fact that it's only available in English), you've just gotta respect the beleaguered Japanese PC gamer who has no choice but to study the monthly column teaching English phrases to use when forced to play games against international opponents, since most Japanese gamers only ever fired up their PCs to play visual novels and porn games.

  14. Dengeki PlayStation Vol.182 (July 27, 2001)

    Summon Night 2 may have made the cover, but the main story in this issue is 24 pages on Final Fantasy X, which also earned an impressive 100, 95, 95, 85 from their review crew.

  15. Dengeki Super Famicom Vol.2 No.10 (June 17, 1994)

    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.

  17. Dengeki PlayStation Vol.071 (April 10, 1998)

    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.

  18. Tech Gian Issue 017 March 1998

    ADULTS ONLY
    This issue will be of particular interest to at least one person around here, as it features a two-page preview of Divi Dead. 
    This issue also presented an unusual problem in that the last 40 pages or so look as if some kind of mold had eaten away a chunk of paper at the bottom of each page.  Without spending too much time trying to recreate the missing areas, I think I managed to make it fairly unnoticeable if you aren't looking carefully.  For anyone interested in knowing what I had to deal with, check out the last two pages (the inside-back cover and back cover), which I left with the missing areas as is.
    You can download the demo disc at archive.org here.  Be aware that it requires Win95 to run.
    Please feel free to comment or hit the "like" button if you download this or any other file.  That kind of encouragement is really the only motivation we have to keep scanning

  19. Dengeki G's Magazine Issue 021 (April 1999)

    The G's stands for "girls" and that's just what you'll get.  No Mario or Solid Snake in these pages, just lots and lots of bishoujo games, pretty much none of which were ever released outside of Japan.  But that's what makes it interesting, hey?

  22. Tech Gian Issue 016 February 1998

    Covers adult bishoujo games/visual novels for the PC. Content is intended for adults only. Downloader discretion is advised.
    Pages 3 and 4 of the magazine were attributed to the demo disc which I've uploaded at archive.org here. (A photo of the disc is included at the end of this archive)
    Be advised that the demo disc was designed to run on a Win95 OS, so it may not work on a modern system.
    As always, because the manga at the back was printed from right to left and starts on the last page and progresses inwards, I have reversed the order of pages so that it can be read in the same order as the rest of the magazine.
