I'm pretty sure (adjusting for inflation) that Neo Geo stuff is cheaper to buy now than it was when it was new.  What the hell were they thinking?😅

Well, money talks. It's usually preceded by wrong decisions, though. 😁

Do you know which issue of Famitsu and page number this is from? It's likely from issues 316 to 325.

nope, not owning any famitsu issue

 

Currently I'm hammered with work and have zero free time, I'm drip feeding what I already scanned but will run out of stuff to upload in a couple of weeks

I might also start scanning some JP mags to help out. Have you done any research into which mags might hold more notable bits, like interviews, beta build screenshots, etc.? There are thousands of issues so I'd like to get the most bang for my buck (I'm not in Japan so I can't just walk down to Jimbocho and browse).

When I set out to create our Japanese magazine section, I just bought a bunch of large dirt-cheap lots of mags from Yahoo auctions and started scanning.  I don't really care what games they cover (psst...I don't have much interest in console games...🤫)  I've scanned about 70 issues thus far and haven't heard any complaints about the contents, though.  With JP mags, 95% of the people who download them here can't read Japanese anyway and just want to look at the pictures.

This guy has bought 42 copies of Hippon Super a late 80's ot mid 90's Japanese Gaming magazine. He has made some videos translating some of the developer interviews in the magazine.

I enjoy using them as a form of practice. It's always enjoyable to learn new vocabulary, then flip through a magazine and go, "Oh look, that's the kanji for 'girlfriend'!"

But, yeah, I'm much better at enjoying the pictures than I am reading the articles. 😞
