Hi, I'm Dr.Adder and i came from Bilbao, Spain. I come here to discover some foreign videogame magazines and also to post some spanish or foreign ads.

My favourite system is Sega Saturn but i never had it. But i had the Sega Master System, Sony PSX, Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, Playstation 2, Wii, GameBoy Pocket, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Advance and Nintendo DS. But before in the 90's, i had the SNES but 10 years ago i sold it when i bought the Nintendo 64">N64.

I hope that post many things throughout the time.

That's all folks!!!

Hi I'm Erik, a Dutch guy living in Singapore. I'm 39 so I'm preparing for my mid-life crisis by reading old magazine scans, talking about old arcade and computer games and the like. My first computer was a ZX80, my first console was pong. :D

I'm addicted to the history of things I like. Like video games. Also I'm amused by the massive number of people posting in this thread who now conveniently have exactly 5 posts

Hey, i'm just a guy on the internet. I see there a lot of real game lovers here, not like a bunch of other game related forums. I even saw someone mention Gun-Nac, it doesn't happen very.. ever.

I've been trying to find a way to preserve my old magazines but didn't have the means of time to do it, and just happened along a play I could both contribute to and mutually benefit from, which is neat. I sepnt much of my time reading and collecting magazines from the late 80's to now, in all formats, and may very well have some that are missing. I just need the time to actually go through them and not ruin them all in the process.

Nothing of great detail to share. I'm 25; games are amongst my earliest memories; my first game played was a NES title by the name of Monster Party; I frequently rented TMNT; and, I was a lover and collector of then-awesome video game magazines. I especially loved Electronic Gaming Monthly for their phone book-thick issues back in the early-mid 90s. These days, I look to the internet for my gaming news and playable demos/video previews, and I've since migrated from the Nintendo brand, to Sony's. I'm currently a PS2er, looking to get my first PS3 in the coming weeks. I used to enjoy the Gameboy; never got into the GBA or the Nintendo DS. A decade+ after laying to rest my brick-heavy Gameboy, I turned to Sony's Playstation Portable. Loving it, admiring the library of titles, and the "flexibility" of the handheld, itself. I found my way here after investigating Nintendo's promotional video content for the Nintendo 64">N64 and the hyping of it and its earliest games. I found a video on YouTube that contained a 2-part video recording of the VHS I received when I was subscribed to Nintendo Power. (Clip 1, Clip 2.)

So, I took an interest in seeing whether or not I could discover archives that centered around retro video game magazines, and... well, I took to this site. Hey, there. :D

23 here, big fan of older games, especially on the Nintendo consoles. I love reading through old magazines and thanks to communities like this I've been able to start up a digital collection of the mags I used to read.
