    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, the comic section at the back has had its page order reversed so that it can be read in the same order as the rest of the magazine.

    Well, if you need further proof that the Japanese gaming scene and the American gaming scene aren't exactly the same, look no further than the 16 page feature story on adult strip mahjong games. You won't find that in GamePro. But then, why would you want to?

  5. Tech Gian Issue 013 (November 1997)

    ADULT CONTENT
     
    Tech Gian covers adult bishoujo games and visual novels for PC and consoles.
     
    Special notes:
    This issue came with a demo disc which was originally held in a plastic sleeve inserted between the cover and the first page. The front and back of the disc were assigned the page numbers of 3 and 4 which is the reason the page numbers 3 and 4 are absent from the scan and the printed page numbers do not match up with the file numbers. ALL PAGES HAVE BEEN SCANNED AND INCLUDED. Regarding the manga section at the end of the magazine: While the magazine itself is read from left to right as in western countries, Japanese manga is read from right to left. As such, the manga section begins at the last page of the magazine and progresses backwards (page-number-wise). In order to facilitate reading the magazine on a CBR reader, I have reordered the manga section so it can be read in the proper sequence. Be aware that this means the printed page numbers will go in reverse order.

  6. Famitsu Issue 0169 (March 13 1992)

    A couple of warnings: page 127 has a somewhat terrifying bit of defacement using whiteout. Also, the bottom 1/4 of the page that makes up pages 95 and 96 had been cut out, so I filled it with white space to keep the pages the same dimensions as everything else. Otherwise the issue was in great shape. Enjoy!

  7. Dengeki PlayStation Vol.131 (January 14 2000)

    Another Japanese magazine, another Gundam cover. These things can't be helped - it's like expecting something other than a car on the cover of a Car & Driver magazine. Which coincidentally might not have been a bad choice, as there's a cover story on Gran Turismo 2. Plus, lots of RPG strategy with sections on Parasite Eve 2, Tokimeki Memorial 2, Chrono Cross, Growlanser, Valkyrie Profile, and Little Princess: Marl Ōkoku no Ningyō Hime 2 (the sequel to Nippon Ichi's Rhapsody.)

    This issue had a hell of a lot of glue that got everywhere during de-binding, so cleaning it up took longer than usual, but I think it turned out all right in the end. Enjoy!

  8. Dengeki Playstation Vol.094 (January 14 1999)

    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.

  15. Famitsu Issue 0168 (March 6 1992)

    Once again another singer/actor idol on the cover. Speaking of which, I use CDisplay to view cbr files, and I noticed that the cover looked oddly washed out when viewing the cbr, despite looking fine when simply viewing the jpg. It turns out that my CDisplay has "color balance on" set as the default option under "color balance" in the configuration menu. Turning it off displays the file correctly (although I noticed that having it turned off made some old scans of certain comics look rather dark, so I guess sometimes it offers an improvement to old/poor scans. Anyway, just wanted to mention that in case anyone else uses the same program.

  16. Dengeki PlayStation Vol.165 (January 12 2001)

    Although this is the second issue I'm uploading, it's actually the first one I scanned and edited. My reason for picking it first was twofold: first, it was the issue my hand closed on when I shut my eyes and picked one at random. Second, and more importantly, it was to be the first magazine I ever debound using a heat gun, and should I have accidentally lit the cover on fire and burnt it to ash while adjusting to the learning process, I could think of no greater candidate for immolation than a cover featuring Square's masterpiece of mediocrity, The Bouncer. Enjoy.

  17. Dengeki PlayStation Vol.048 (July 11 1997)

    Dengeki PlayStation D2 (vol.48)
     
    This is the 2nd issue in the Dengeki Playstation D series (meaning it came with a disc full of demos, movies, and other content). These issues are much shorter than a typical issue of Dengeki PlayStation, as the disc itself was meant to be the primary content. As such, I urge anyone unfamiliar with Dengeki PlayStation to download one of the other issues to get a sense of what the magazine is really like.

  19. Tech Gian Issue 012 (October 1997)

    ADULT CONTENT
     
    Tech Gian covers adult bishoujo games and visual novels for PC and consoles.
     
    Special notes:
    This issue comes with a CD-ROM full of demos, videos, etc. This disc is designed for Windows 95, and as such needs to run in a 16-bit Windows environment. Modern versions of Windows may not run this disc unless emulating an older Windows environment, but for anyone interested, I have uploaded an ISO of the disc at archive.org here: https://archive.org/details/TechGian1997OctoberDemoDisc The above mentioned CD-ROM was originally held in a plastic sleeve inserted between the cover and the first page. As such, the front and back of the disc were assigned the page numbers of 3 and 4. I have included a photo of the disc at the end of the archive (my flatbed scanner is broken at the moment), but be aware that this is the reason the page numbers 3 and 4 are absent and the printed page numbers do not match up with the file numbers. ALL PAGES HAVE BEEN SCANNED AND INCLUDED. Regarding the manga section at the end of the magazine: While the magazine itself is read from left to right as in western countries, Japanese manga is read from right to left. As such, the manga section begins at the last page of the magazine and progresses backwards (page-number-wise). In order to facilitate reading the magazine on a CBR reader, I have reordered the manga section so it can be read in the proper sequence.

    I've streamlined my Photoshop-fu, editing this 228 page beast in under 3 hours, and the results (in my opinion) are indistinguishable from back when I took 3 times as long to get it done. Fie upon the clone stamp! All hail content-aware fill! Huzzah!
