    Lotsa good stuff this issue. The main features: Parasite Eve (25 pages and a poster!) Resident Evil 2 (18 pages) Tekken 3 (10 pages) Xenogears (8 pages) Bushido Blade 2 (6 pages) Final Fantasy V (6 pages) By the way, the fold-out poster I stitched together looks pretty great. If anyone is interested in having a full-size copy (much bigger than the one included in this file), I uploaded it here: https://mega.nz/#!EBxjzCpS!Yv2RRJsutCUNNUuPDZxjs8-MBHFzbfOzmRO0JX6KfnE It's full 600dpi at 6026x9100px and could be printed out as an actual poster by a printing service if you were so inclined.

    ADULTS ONLY This issue will be of particular interest to at least one person around here, as it features a two-page preview of Divi Dead. This issue also presented an unusual problem in that the last 40 pages or so look as if some kind of mold had eaten away a chunk of paper at the bottom of each page. Without spending too much time trying to recreate the missing areas, I think I managed to make it fairly unnoticeable if you aren't looking carefully. For anyone interested in knowing what I had to deal with, check out the last two pages (the inside-back cover and back cover), which I left with the missing areas as is. You can download the demo disc at archive.org here. Be aware that it requires Win95 to run. Please feel free to comment or hit the "like" button if you download this or any other file.

    Well, er...aside from that issue of Computer Gaming World, I'm not sure the rest actually qualify as PC gaming mags, but hey, even one CGW is half as many as we've got so far.

    The following magazines were prepped over the weekend for scanning. It will probably take me 4-5 weeks to scan thru all of these. You may see issues beyond our cutoff date, these will be released in the future.

    $50 to ship 180kg? Hell no, that's super cheap. In America, that would cost hundreds of dollars (using the postal service, at any rate). Not sure about a freight shipping service, but I can guarantee that freight shipping in the US won't deliver it in 1-2 days like pretty much every shipping service in Japan. Of course, if you were trying to have a package of this size delivered outside of Japan, I shudder to think what it would cost. BTW, the Famitsu bid hasn't changed since yesterday, but as I predicted, the Gamest auction is on the move and is now at around $470 with 4 days left to go.

    LOL. Just saw this in a recent issue of Famitsu. It's a table of contents for their coverage of several games in the Senran Kagura franchise based on the characters' breasts. Because why pretend anyone cares about anything else, I guess? There is a bad pun at the top: "乳ゲーム特集” is pronounced "nyuuu game (new game) tokushuu (special report)", but the character 乳 (nyuu) can also be pronounced "chichi" which means "breasts", making it the "Senran Kagura Breast Games Special Report" Oh Japan, you and your puns. And flagrant perviness.

    Thank you for scanning the November 1994 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly. I enjoyed the issue as much as the October 1994 issue.

    First subscription issue (#8) Last issue I actually read (#34) Last issue I received (#59) Upon receiving my first issue (#8, 1989), I immediately went about ordering the previous 7 back issues. For a time, NP was magical, and every issue that arrived in the mailbox was memorable and I devoured them cover to cover. As time passed, I became less and less interested. The early days of the SNES resparked my enthusiasm, but the difference between the 11 year old that got his first issue and the 14 year old that stopped reading NP was pretty huge. Plus, by 1992 (the year of issue #34 - the last issue I remember actually reading), PCs had entered the SVGA and soundcard era, so not only were the games themselves more complex and interesting to an older gamer like myself, but the technology had finally caught up to the point where home consoles no longer had the advantage. My game mag reading switched to Game Player's PC titles, and later when it premiered, PC Gamer. Yet for some reason I continued to subscribe to NP for some time afterwards, with the most recent cover I remember being the #59 from early 1994. Dunno why I subscribed for nearly 2 years without even reading the mag. Habit? Or maybe I was enticed by some sort of subscription/renewal giveaway (in addition to Dragon Warrior, I seem to recall getting some free strategy guides for renewing my subscription)?

    Biweekly (or in the case of Famitsu, weekly) mags are one of the reasons periods are better than dashes. Jan/Feb 1988 = (1988.01-02) The dash takes on a meaning of January through February) Jan. 2, 1988 = (1988.01.02)

    I feel like I've hit the wall, both creatively and when it comes to gaming. I've so far ignored this current generation of games, as none of the "next gen" systems on offer feel like they have anything to offer me, and yet this creates a conundrum for me. I honestly cannot remember the last time a game absolutely blew me away, and yet looking back through the past, through my own memories, I can see dozens upon dozens of instances. Some of them were gaming "firsts", such as the first time I saw 'Super Mario Bros.' in action and realized games could be larger than one static screen like the arcades offered, my first encounter with 'Resident Evil' where I learned the potential games had to terrify, or the first time I wandered through a fully-realized 3D city environment in 'Grand Theft Auto III' where you could just drive around and explore without being tied to missions or even time limits. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I realize it's those "firsts" that have given meaning to gaming to me ever since I was little. Playing 'Dragon Warrior' on the NES, my first real RPG experience. Watching Sonic burn through stages at warp speed on the Genesis. Two-player racing battles in 'Super Mario Kart' and 'F-Zero'. Taking my first steps in the City of Vilcabamba level in Lara Croft's shoes within the 'Tomb Raider' demo. 'Tomb Raider' was twenty-one years ago, the summer of 1996, and while there have been other games like it, nothing has matched that feeling of immersion, of danger, of solitude and exploration. Twenty-one years. I was nineteen. 'Silent Hill 2' turns sixteen this September. I've never played another game that was so good I wanted to keep playing, but took me to places so awful to contemplate that I had to put it down just to process what I'd witnessed. I was twenty-four when Jess gave me the game for my birthday that October. Others have come close, but none have matched the horror of James Sunderland's journey through hell, searching for his wife Mary. I could go on like this, but it just makes me depressed. I have close to fifty games in my PS3 library, and not one I can name has left me with the feeling that I've experienced something life-changing. Have I had fun? Absolutely! I loved the 'Tomb Raider' reboot of 2013. 'Bionic Commando: Rearmed' is a fantastic port/update of the NES classic. 'Just Cause 2' is awesomely explosive open-world entertainment, and 'Saints Row 2' and its two sequels have picked up the mantle 'Grand Theft Auto' ditched when they opted for gritty and obnoxious realism over the comedic joy and silliness that comes from playing a video game. Nathan Drake's antics in 'Uncharted' are entertaining, but is Naughty Dog doing anything different from what Core Design did years ago and Indiana Jones did a decade before that? Even the lone game in my PS3 library I could name that gave me that kind of 'first' experience is nothing more than an HD port of two PS2 games. 'Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga' was ground-breaking in its mixture of fun and simplicity, but again, I'd played it already a few years earlier when it was 'Lego Star Wars' and 'Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy'. Then I think: 'Dead Space'. 'Dead Space' came closest. It did a lot of things right. But just like the 'Alien' films, 'Dead Space' became a victim of its own success. If the first game was a claustrophobic journey through the unknown, the second was the big action set piece where the protagonist went from ordinary survivor to badass hero, and by the third it was clear the people behind the series had lost all touch with what made it great in the first place. So, for the sake of argument, I'll say 'Dead Space' fits the mold, the requirements, for what I've been seeking. 'Dead Space' came out in 2008. That was damn near a decade ago...what the hell happened to it (and to me)? Scanning the shelves, my gaze settles on 'Heavy Rain'. 'Heavy Rain' was bloody magnificent, I don't care what the haters say, but 'Heavy Rain' came out in 2010. Seven years later, what is there to match it? What is there to look forward to when it seems so many game companies are playing it safe? Can the field evolve further? I don't mean in terms of technological gimmicks like motion controls, touch screens, and VR headsets. I mean in terms of 'firsts', and meaningful firsts at that. 'Parasite Eve' blew me away in 1998 with its cinematic storytelling and exploration of a New York City at the turn of the millennium under siege from a sentient biological threat. Its sequel ditched the RPG elements, opting for a more straight-up survival horror presentation, and its most recent incarnation for the PSP, 'The Third Birthday', abandoned the Parasite Eve name all together in favor of a pseudo-sequel starring an Aya Brea who feels nothing like the original, who sight-jacks her way through a tired third-person action shooter. Where is the sense in this? Though I never played sports, save for a stint in cross-country and track in high school where I was average at best, I feel at this point in my life like a has-been, looking back on her youth, vainly trying to hold on to memories of her glory days on the presumption that things will never change, in denial of the fact that not only will things change, but that they already have. Maybe I'm asking for something I can never have. People could point to the eruption of building sandbox games like 'Minecraft', but I've played 'Minecraft' and found it too complicated and too time-consuming for my tastes. I can watch other people play it on YouTube and enjoy myself vicariously through their creations and interactions with the world and other players, but I feel like I've aged out of the demographic who can pick up and play it or its ilk. So here I am, stuck between two worlds, aged out of one and left pining for another. The truth is, for me, there likely will never be another 'Tomb Raider' moment, another 'Resident Evil' moment, another 'Parasite Eve' moment, another 'Silent Hill 2' moment. Video games are no longer made for people my age. Controls are too complex, single-player is often an afterthought, and so much that we see walks the line of utter safety. Another 'Call of Duty', another 'Halo', another 'Medal of Honor', another clone, another me-too, another waste of my time. Whether I outgrew gaming or it outgrew me, I don't know. Ultimately, it doesn't matter. I have my memories, I have my flashes of inspiration, and I have the thankfulness that I was there to experience it all. I literally grew up with video games. But like so many of the friends I made as I grew up, life happened, people moved on, and so have I. Just as it would feel awkward to sit down with an old friend I haven't seen in fifteen years, it feels awkward trying to re-kindle my relationship with video games. I want to be the same girl I was twenty years ago, reading through the magazines, eagerly watching the commercials, lapping up coverage of everything interesting me, visiting the rental stores to try new titles, cracking open new demo discs, and immersing myself in that world. I want to be. But I can't. Whatever that was, whatever I had, I've lost it. It's left me, hopefully to take up root in someone else's imagination. I hope it's found another girl who watches trailers on YouTube and finds inspiration, who doesn't have room in her house for massive Lego builds but has plenty of RAM on her computer to play 'Minecraft', who grew up reading "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" and now picks up the PS4 controller to play through 'Outlast' or 'Resident Evil VII'. I hope she finds what I lost, nurtures it, makes it a part of who she is, and goes on to draw inspiration from it. Because I think it's done with me. And I don't see it coming back.

    The G's stands for "girls" and that's just what you'll get. No Mario or Solid Snake in these pages, just lots and lots of bishoujo games, pretty much none of which were ever released outside of Japan. But that's what makes it interesting, hey?
