New Release: Dengeki Nintendo 64 Issue 18 (November 1997)

This issue really proves how beneficial it is to add gloss to magazine pages.  The glossy color pages are still just like new, whereas the black and white newsprint section had suffered quite a bit of yellowing, which I only compensated for slightly, leaving much of the natural yellow as is.  The cover was another story.  It isn't perfect now by any means, but you should have seen the condition it was in before being cleaned up, hoo boy...

 

Just like Famitsu had a weekly column covering Dragon Quest news and developments, this mag appears to have an ongoing column covering the development of Mother 3, which ironically was never actually released on the 64 or 64DD.

 

The coverage of Ocarina of Time is pretty early, so it was still just The Legend of Zelda 64 at the point this was written.  It's been ages since I've played it so I can't be sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if none of the screen shots are from the actual finished game.

This probrably shares some of the screenshots of the EGM I'm scanning now with early Zelda 64 coverage.

It's really hard to combat yellowing except when it's in spot areas. Not worth the trouble. I did it once. It took hours, for one page.
