Well, I ordered these yesterday and 24 hours later, here they are (only $5 shipping).  Gotta love Japan's delivery services.

And I'm in love with this magazine.  I didn't really know what to expect, as the only issues I had before this were much more recent, after they stopped being a mag strictly about computer games and morphed into a self-described "media mix" mag.  But these older issues (from 1992) are suh-weet!  About 300 pages each.  I don't know jack squat about most of the games they cover (other than the imported Western games), but just browsing is interesting.

      Hello all,
      My posts have seemed kind of nit-picky recently (missing magazines, missing scans, etc) so here's something a bit more positive.
      On deck to be preserved, Turbo Force #3 (January 1993):

      If all goes well I'll be scanning more saddle-stitched magazines in the coming months. Perhaps with a focus on Video Games & Computer Entertainment but I'll likely mix things up to keep things interesting. I'll have a better idea once I have an opportunity to dig into my collection.
      Cheers,

      So I decided to help get our EGM collection complete, I acquired a lot of stuff and sent a lot to E-Day. But I am going to try and scan some of this stuff myself. And try my hand at editing. I purchased a Canon LiDE 220 scanner. It doesn't have a huge bed. But big enough for magazines.mbut it outputs excellent color and is fast. Uses LED lamp so no warmup times.
      My first issue I'm scanning is EGM 07 the Top Score issue with the codes. I've completed scanning. Now on to editing. I've messed around a it and found straightening and cropping to be pretty fast. And the clone stamp has been working well for fixing blemishes. The colors came out so good I'm not sure if I'll have to color correct much if at all. I'll probrably go through and crop and fix blemishes and straighten first. Then I'll post some images here to get some opinions on color correction options and contrast adjustments before app,using them. Any advice on Photoshop corrections would be appreciated ahead of time to get me started. Or just wait till I post some screenshots and give me some feed back.
      I'm scanning in 500 dpi because it's fairly quick with this scanner. When I'm done editing I plan to resize the images to 1600 pixels wide. Is this still a good standard to use. Should I do more or less. Files sizes maybe could get bigger with the times. But let me know what the site still reccomend and I'll go with that.

      I have listed these here in the hope that some kind soul has the time and patience to edit these (cropping etc) as I sadly don't have the time at the moment.
       
      Note that you will need to click the download pdf button as the quality is much higher in the pdf than the pages you can see on the site.
       
      Total Control 01
      The cover needs re-scanned as my scanner doesn't support the shiny silver:

      I am going to attempt to use my old, slow flatbed scanner to scan:

      GamePro Issue 90 (labeled 100) January 1997. I'm not sure how it will turn out - if it turns out - but we'll see!
