Meppi, remember that is after the floor falling through. I mean, I counted out about 179 issues were lost, mostly Game Informer and EGM from the last two years but unfortunately, several issues of GameFan and EGM were lost too, hence the holes in my collection there. Sad night that was.

I am going through and noting which ones are available already and comparing quality where possible and making a note of it so that I can either mark it to scan or mark it as scanned and go onto another mag.

I would love to see some of those early GamePro's scanned also :)

The ones with No cover may have a easy fix, Magweasel.com has cover scans of most of the GamePro collection, and if the inside of the cover is just an advertisement, we can insert a place holder until we find someone to scan the missing page.

Cool, I didn't know you allowed partial uploads like that. I will keep that in mind when scanning them. I will scan as much as I can as time permits.

Phillyman, did you get the message about the GameFan issue that I sent you a link for?

We like to try to keep partial uploads to a minimum, If a magazine is missing 1-3 pages we could probably insert place holders. If its missing over 5 pages it would probably be better just to wait for someone else to scan it. Keep in mind that 2 people scanning the same page on different scanners can produce different results. I got your PM, just been a busy day at work :)

Triverse, if you have some time, please add those magazines to the WIP system. You can set up the account at www.retromags.com/wip. This way other site members know what you have and we can easily see (without having to visit this thread) what we do and don't need to obtain.

If you don't have time, let me know and I can add the magazines to the WIP system for you. Seeing some of those early GamePros is exciting. Feel free (if you don't have time), to bundle those up to me and I can assist with getting early GamePros uploaded.

Thanks!

Ok, I am finishing up GameFan Volume 1 issue 6 right now, trying to finish it before I goto bed (slow upload will be the end of me, lol). I am wondering what issues anyone may be wanting to get up next? Just post and let me know and I will try and get them going. If no one posts I am going to continue with alternating GameFan and GamePro issues.

Thanks everyone.

Thanks for the comments there meppi. They are getting a better response than I thought they would have.

The Gamefans are going to be central to my uploads, I am just wondering what others would like to see as far what would be wanted when I alternate (otherwise, I am going to just pick what is handy and go with it, Gamepro's right now).

I am thinking about focusing on mags that don't have a category of their own or ones that are completely missing from the site (like the Gamefans) in an effort to flesh out what is offered and maybe, just maybe, more members will come and join and contribute their mags.

GameFan Vol 1 Issue 6 is uploading now. I can't wait to see GF get it's own category now that it will have 5 releases uploaded. YAY!!!!

I am going to do an issue of PSExtreme next: Below is what I have available, any suggestions as to which one should be first?

Volume 4 Issue 5 April 1999 (Gex 3 cover with 2 page Psygnosis preview section)

Volume 4 Issue 6 May 1999 (Driver cover with 2 page spreads on Star Wars: Phantom Menace, Star Ocean 2nd story and Dino Crisis)

Volume 4 Issue 11 October 1999 (Fighting Force 2 cover with several 2 page spreads of various games)

Volume 4 Issue 12 November 1999 (Crash Team Racing cover with multi page spread on PS2)

Volume 5 Issue 3 February 2000 (Tomba! 2 on cover with 2 page spread on Crusaders of Might and Magic)

Volume 5 Issue 4 March 2000 (Fear Effect on cover has a spread on it and Die Hard Trilogy 2)

I promised invaliduserid that I would do these when I got a chance that is why I am asking about them right now. I am going to do more Gamefans after one or two of these.

Just log on and tell me what you would like to see.

Thanks everyone

I'm all for the GameFan mags. Another favorite in ps1 days. On the psextremes, the only hard copy I have in your list is the feb 2000 Tomba 2 cover, so you can up any of your choice. Thanks for your effort on this.

GameFan v2i3 Feb 94 is uploaded and ready for download. Enjoy. B)

Just a side note on a sad event that happened to me yesterday:

I went to one of the local libraries near me and they had a huge, I mean, huge collection of various magazines out for free. Just take them. Well, I was thumbing through the pile when my fiance asked me if I had seen this one, she held up a copy of a newer EGM. I said no and asked her where she got it. She pointed at the corner and said over there. I went over and there were a couple of kids there already looking through them. I looked over their shoulders (trying my best to not seem like some kind of pediphile) and saw countless issues of gaming magazines (unfortunately, I had most of them already). One that caught my attention was GameFan #2. I tried playing it cool and waited till the kids left and went over. It was gone, I searched all over the area. I went outside, looking all dejected and quite a bit upset. I looked around but didn't see the kids (I was going to maybe buy it off of them or something). It was truly sad. That close to the #2 issue. I mean, would I have been a bad person for shoving them out of the way and grabbing it? I mean, they were about 15 or so, so they weren't like little kids. :unsure:

15? Bah. They're punks! They would have pushed you out of the way if the tables were reversed.

Though, if they were in a library, then they may not have been punks. If any of them wore glasses, chances are they were clean cut, good kids. You could have just shimmied/weaseled your way inbetween them.

You were this >< close.

I got a call from a guy offering to sell me the first 6 issues of GameFan for $200. Mint condition. Pricey for me right now but I want them so bad. My fiances parents offered to buy them for me for Christmas (early Christmas as they would give them to my now) but I am not sure, I mean, that is a lot of money for some old magazines, you know? Especially with my luck with the floors and magazines not being so great lately.

That is a lot of money. But if it is something you collect and plan on keeping for many, many years, then it's worth it. If the future in laws offered to get them for you as an early Christmas present, I say go for it. Just return the favour to them down the road when you are able to as a big thank you :)

I just feel bad about accepting something like that. You know? I mean, hell, they have already just bought me a PSP out of the blue about 9 months ago. For no reason other than they knew I wanted one (they got my fiance a shopping spree at a local clothing store, something she wanted).

If it was my money, I would buy the issues without thinking about it, no problem. I am just concerned that they are simply going to deteriate as I have less than ideal conditions to keep them in right now, still working on that controlled environment storage building- I have the concrete slab poured getting ready to start the walls later, hopefully before it gets too cold outside.

I mean, GameFan #1. I have seen EGM #1 go for $300 before in mint condition so I guess it is cheap for more than just that one issue for $200.

Like I said, pay back the favour down the road when you are able to. Just accept them!

And if you have a warm place to live in, which I assume you do, then you have a place to keep those magazines. They'll be just fine even though they aren't in a controlled environment. I have several magazines that I've had for 7 or 8 years, stored where I had space, and they are still perfect. Relax and take the magazines!
