The Ninja Gaiden cover variations continue!  It looks like Australia also had to call it Shadow Warriors, but unlike the UK they show Ryu holding his weapons and wearing his mask.  Actually, considering the other cover here shows "TMNT II" and not "TMHT II," I wonder if Australia wasn't really afraid their youth would grow up to be ninja like they were in the UK after all.  I guess they just thought "Shadow Warriors" sounded better?

Do we have anyone capable of scanning the Official Xbox Magazines?  When I was pulling some mags out of storage to be scanned, I noticed they're too wide for an A4 scanner.

What are those PC Games issues?  Every issue of PCGames and PC Games I've ever seen has a date on the cover, not a volume number?

Shows as Missing at Retromags :P

Magazines may already be available at other websites, but since I have no control over those websites, and since we don't host other sites files..... :)

Should show as 'Acquired', since I just set that flag. ;)

The world is my oyster.  I may only upload here, but I download from EVERYWHERE.

Understood, just saying it would be silly for Retromags to NOT scan something because its available elsewhere. I see some Nintendo Powers that have been scanned elsewhere, but to leave those holes in our collection.....well that will just lead to questions about why we are not scanning them, and i am not for directing people to 6 other websites when we can just scan those mags ourselves. Maybe they are not a huge priority, but I would like to strive for complete collections here.....like we did for Sega Visions and a few others.
