    Have you SEEN the covers on old issues of Game Player's and GamePro? It was a baloney sandwich on white bread.

    That's because they just stole the box art from the game instead of hiring an artist out of the yellow pages for the low low price of $19.99 and a sandwich.

    I get unreasonably excited when I see another Famitsu release. Thank you, @kitsunebi! *huggles* Areala

    Hi Kitsunebi, Just wanted to thank you for all the Japanese gaming mags you have made available here. I recently discovered this site and have just finished grabbing pretty much all your Japan-related uploads. I'm very interested in video game history, and of course without the Eastern perspective we really only have half the story. There is a lot of effort put towards game preservation these days (and rightly so), but it seems preservation of the surrounding ephemera is sadly lacking. There is so much exclusive and interesting info locked away in these mags, from the contemporaneous dev/artist/musician interviews and studio tours, to custom artwork and ads, not to mention the endless guides. Really an invaluable resource, especially for the 'golden age' from PC Engine to PS1/Dreamcast. So, Thanks!

    Originally Coury lent this issue to Chris from Classic Gaming Quarterly for a read through video. I had lent Chris the GamePro Celebrity Gamer magazine for the same reason. When I found out he had this issue I asked him if he could ask Coury if I could borrow it to scan. Coury agreed without ever speaking to me or even knowing who exactly it was going to. Looks like we have a reputation of being trustworthy! I think I scanned it in one night and had it in the mail back to him within a couple of weeks from getting it.

    I'm delighted to finally get a look at this. I've wondered what all was in it for years, and was not disappointed. Fireteam Rogue, First Queen, Young Merlin, Brain Lord, Lord of the Rings...ahhh, nostalgia.

    Remember thumbing through this one as a kid and trying out the combos at the arcades. Good times.

    No kidding. The Versus Books Perfect Guide for Resident Evil 2 often tops $100. Even this one here, the unauthorized guide to the first game, will usually set the buyer back ~$15 or so. What's especially amusing to me is that Prima produced both an Authorized and an Unauthorized guide to the RE Director's Cut. The Unauthorized book covers the game's initial release in 1997, while the Authorized one covers the DualShock re-release of 1998. Outside of analog stick support, they're exactly the same game, written by the same guy, but Capcom got Prima to pay money so they could be the 'authorized' publisher of the guide one year after they were the 'unauthorized' publisher of the previous guide. Ahhh, the 90's... *huggles* Areala

    So there are two "official" strategy guides for this game? I thought that was...impossible?

    From 250 MB to 25 MB. And it looks the same. Thanks for taking care of this one.

    Apparently they felt there was no need to have the cover artwork even tangentially related to the game. I get that it's an unauthorized guide, but...

    I am thankful for this site and the nostalgia it brings. I am looking forward to reading these old Nintendo Power issues and mastering the games I could never afford as a kid.

    Not really interested in doing the touch up stuff if I'm being honest, would rather spend that time scanning. But happy to put them on the FTP for someone else to fix and release if they want to. I don't care about the credit, just want this stuff out there.

    Fixed the black void on top of page 78 for you. Re-download if you got the older file!

    Checked it out, and although there is still warping here and there, a lot of it got straightened out. What a pain in the ass that must have been! Good work, MigJmz!

    Seems like I forgot to upload it, or I uploaded it and forgot to update the entry. In any case, it's been uploaded now and updated.

    For those curious, this is the issue where GamePro debuted their iconic rating system.

    Japan wasn't guilt-free of stealing cover art themselves. Except in this case it was straight-up plagiarism. Sort of like a D-student thinking they can just change a few words while copying from an encyclopedia and turn it in as their original research paper. Ravenloft module: 1983 Castlvania II: 1987 "Just have Dracula turn his head and everyone will think this is original art!" Riiiiiiight....

    I've got to say, this might be the very worst cover art I've ever seen for an issue of Game Player's. That's just...oof...bad.

    These mags were the best, always like this style on the covers a lot more than the near 2000 stuff which looks terrible to me

    Only one more. I have another issues but it's on hold because it has damage and/or something cut out of a page.
