    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.

  5. Famitsu Issue 0043 (February 19, 1988)

    The credits on this one are more complicated than usual, so an explanation is in order.  This issue was a collaboration between ccovell and myself.  The magazine itself was donated by ccovell, but after I scanned it, I realized there were some pages missing.  It turned out that there was a Dragon Quest III sticker sheet as well as a Dragon Quest III supplement missing from the copy that was donated to me.  Normally supplements would be considered separate anyway, but in this case, the supplement was included in the magazine's page count, so I wanted to include it.  ccovell was kind enough to scan the supplemental pages from another copy he owns.
    So: pg 67-68 and 77-96 were scanned by ccovell.  All other pages were scanned by me.  All edits by me.
    This issue marks the (as of yet) oldest issue of Famitsu to be scanned for our archives (the scan of issue 1 is of a half-size reproduction, not an original issue).  Enjoy!
    I'll also include some information about the best seller lists and game-of-the-year awards which I posted in my personal thread in the forums, since it's likely that most people downloading this will overlook it otherwise:
    And for a complete breakdown of all of the Best-of-the-year Awards, please check out this comment (I can't copy it here without causing an error for some reason):

  6. Famitsu Issue 0049 (May 20, 1988)

    Thanks to ccovell for donating the issue.  Also the gavas bucks page was missing, so he provided a scan of that page to make the mag complete.  For anyone who missed it in my forum thread, Gavas were a big scam run by Famitsu to trick kids into thinking they could win fabulous prizes by buying every issue of Famitsu that hit the stands.  Below is a closer look at just how impossible getting those prizes actually was.  Listed are the prize, the amount of Gavas needed to win the prize, the number of Famitsu issues you would need to purchase in order to have enough Gavas, and approximately how much that many issues of Famitsu would cost.  These are all in 1988 dollars, so it would be much more today.
    As of May 1988 (these are not all of the prizes, btw):
    A Famitsu Pencil Case - 780 Gavas - 49 issues - approx. $195 A Famitsu T-Shirt - 1680 Gavas - 105 issues - approx. $420 A Famicom Game - 2900 Gavas - 182 issues - approx. $728 A Famicom System - 9800 Gavas - 613 issues - approx. $2,452 A Sega Master System - 11200 Gavas - 700 issues - approx. $2,800 A PC Engine (TurboGrafx16) System - 16500 Gavas - 1,032 issues - approx. $4,128 It should also be worth noting that Famitsu was bi-weekly at this point.  So assuming you really wanted that PC Engine and you bought one copy of every issue that hit the stands, you would expect to finally have enough Gavas approximately... 38 years later.  So...sometime in 2026.  Of course, Famitsu eventually went weekly, of course, so you actually would have been able to finally get that PC Engine sometime in 2009.  Well, except that PC Engines had long since ceased production by then.😒

    Merry Christmas!  (well, that's the cover date, anyway.)
    As always with Dengeki P, lots of RPG and giant robot coverage (I mean, this IS Japan, after all.)  All in all, 264 pages of PlayStation goodness.  I've eschewed including stitched-together two-page joins this time, but when viewed in two-page mode, those pages (ads, mostly) should look seamless, since they were joined together during the editing process, edited as a single pic, and then separated again.
    Sometimes these Japanese mags are just ornery:  The files within the cbr are numbered correctly, but you'll notice that the page numbers don't always match what's printed on the page.  That's because there were lots of strange instances of unnumbered pages.  For example, there was a multi-page advertising section where the first and last pages of the ad were given page numbers, but the middle 4 pages, which were printed like a fold-out poster, went unnumbered.  Another advertising section was printed on a series of pages of differing widths.  Only the full-sized pages were given numbers, while the narrower pages all went unnumbered.  Craziness!!  Thanks to the fold-out section, I actually had to swap one page's location in order to ensure that further pages would be paired with the correct facing page when viewing in two-page mode (don't worry, you'll never even know which one).

    Supplement included with the March 9, 1990 issue of Family Computer Magazine. The title, Ultech Shinbun, means "ultimate technique newspaper," and it was printed in newspaper format and featured strategies for several games (mainly Dragon Quest IV).

  10. Downtown Nekketsu Koushinkyoku Soreyuke Daiundoukai - Hisshou tora no Maki (Family Computer Magazine Issue 113 supplement) (October 19, 1990)

    Downtown Nekketsu Kōshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundōkai - Hisshou Tora no Maki (ダウンタウン熱血行進曲 それゆけ大運動会 - 必勝トラの巻, Downtown Nekketsu March: Let's Go to the Great Athletic Meet - Tiger's Victory Volume) was published as a supplement to the October 19, 1990 issue of Family Computer Magazine (issue 113).
    This game is one in the popular and long-running Kunio-kun series of games (including such classics as Renegade, River City Ransom, and Super Dodge Ball) originated by Technos Japan and currently developed and published by Arc System Works.  It was released for the Famicom on October 12, 1990 and features Nekketsu High School competing against three other teams in a series of four athletic events. Up to four players can participate.
    Although this game was never released outside of Japan, it was very successful and is one of the games included on the Japanese version of the NES Classic Edition (Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer ).
    PLEASE NOTE!!!! - Family Computer Magazine (and its supplements) are printed Japanese-style, meaning that the magazine's spine is on the right side and pages are opened from the left.  Thus, once opened, the pages are read from right to left, with the right page coming before the left page.  In order for the pages to display correctly if viewing in two-page mode, "Japanese mode" should be enabled.  In Cdisplay, this is easily accomplished via the CTRL-J hotkey (or through the configure menu).  If viewing in single page view, the pages will display in the proper order regardless, though keep in mind that again, the page is read from right to left.

    Saga Frontier 2, Metal Gear Solid, and  Suikoden II are just a few of the games featured here that Western gamers are familiar with.  But as always, the main interest here (for me, anyway) are the dozens upon dozens of Japanese-only exclusives you might not have read about before.  ENJOY!
    232 pages
    Please note that there was one page that had been torn out of the magazine.  The front side was the second half of a two-page advertisement and is missing from this scan.  The back side was a different ad, which I have included here using an identical copy of the ad from a different magazine.
    EDIT: The missing page has been provided by Akane and is now included in the download, making this mag COMPLETE!😎

    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.

    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.😀

    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.

    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.
