Hey all, my name's Josh, and I'm soon to be a graduate student for a long time at Arizona State University, getting both my MBA and my law degree.

So, I'm new to this site and hoping that I can find Official Dreamcast Magazines scans to download. Can someone help me get started?

Hello everyone,

I'm a 23 year old college student, aspiring to be a game designer when I grow up. :whistling: I've played games since 1985 (Anyone remember the TRS-80?) And, nearly wet my pants in 1996 when I discovered Nesticle. I'm a right-brain-left-brain kind of person with a wide variety of interests in both arts and sciences (I compose music and write code). I've become a collector of games and game related stuff and came across this site through a public torrent tracker with the huge Nintendo Power release. I partly justify my file-sharing habits by viewing myself as a librarian :) And, someday hope to see a library/museum/archive-thing of game related stuff surface. Anyway, I dig the retromags intentions with scanning old video game mags and hope to contribute what I can in the future.

Favorite quote: "He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose."

I'm zovik, 22, from Missouri in the USA. Sadly I don't have the time to play very much anymore, but I've been a watcher of the emulation and vg preservation community since about 1996.

Oh crap, 10 years. That's depressing.

Hey I'm 22 and from North Carolina. Game Players magazine used to be a short 3 hour drive from my house, but I was too short to get a license when I was 10. I ended up never going, and then they moved office to CA with the rest of the gang. :(

Now that I'm older, I don't feel a surprise visit to their office would be worth giving up my :cough: maturity :cough:.

Hi. I turned 27 today. I'd borrow my friends Nintendo Power Mags when we were 10 yrs old. I was surprised to find out that people had already archived them into a digital format. I hope to contribute what I can.

Hey all. I can't remember how I got here, but it had something to do with checking out Cowering's Goodtools leading to here leading to Gay-Porn (which I'd like to be a part of, but I need an invite it seems).

I originally got in to console gaming way back as a youngster with my family's Atari 2600. When I finally got a NES for Christmas, I was hooked for life. I begged for a subscription to Nintendo Power, like my friend had, to keep up with the latest on games. My first issue was the first of their third year (Vol 13 - the SMB3 guide), and later I renewed to get the first 4 Player's Guides for free. I also back ordered issues 1-12 to complete my collection to that point. I also have a few non Nintendo Power">NP magazines/guides that looked interesting at the time.

Later on I acquired a gameboy and finally bought myself a SNES with money from my first job. I stopped getting Nintendo Power">NP after issue 60 for lack of time/money/interest. I had gotten my first computer and gotten heavily in to keeping up with the latest software and games/guides for that. I have have as many or more computer games and guides than my original console collection. Once I discovered the internet, online faqs, and emulation, I stopped buying printed guides. A few years ago, I also traded my neglected Nintendo systems and games for a brand new PS2 and a couple games.

I still have most of my magazine collection, which in good shape. Issues 13-24 of Nintendo Power">NP are heavily worn from heavy usage, issue 49 went mysteriously missing years ago, and a few issues are damaged from meddling nephews and nieces - a couple torn (or nearly shredded) pages and a missing back cover. Also, my Mario Mania Player's guide was torn apart and tossed, but for some strange reason I still have page 167-8.

I've been meaning to recollect issue 49, the damaged NPs, and Mario Mania for years but never have gotten around to searching. I was thinking I could get some leads here or at Gay-Porn.

Well I'm a 38 year old game collector. I have every console I have ever bought and a lot of my old game magazines. I would have to say my favorite old console would be my Dreamcast then either the NES or SuperNES.

Hi, my name is Aaron I'm 25 and an airmen in the AirForce. I'm an Avionics Systems Apprentice for the F-16. I started off as a kid playing a Magnavox Odyssey? then the NES after that the SuperNES. But I really did get into video game until 1996 when I got an Atari Jaguar. After that I went crazy and got almost every system I could find. From the Neo Geo to PSX. I even have a CDi. My favorite mag of the time was Next Gen and Ultra Game Player.

Hi all,

I'm Chris, 25 years old and an old-school NES gamer. I've been away from games for over 10 years, but the Virtual Console has reawakened my interest in older Nintendo.

Hey I'm David and I've been a fan of games from the 90s - particularly SNES and Sega Genesis, and eventually Nintendo 64">N64 and PSX. It's what I grew up on.
