    I got bored and uploaded something. It's another issue of Famitsu, full of this and that as they are wont to be. Please pour out a 40 for the Chinese message board I found this on a year ago which has since gone the way of pogs and pudding pops. https://archive.org/details/famitsu0288june241994

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. By default, ScanSnap paper size is set to "automatic detection." This is actually autocrop. By manually selecting a paper size, you are turning autocrop off. If you select a size larger than the page you're scanning, it will ensure that you're scanning every part of the page. Unless my calculations are incorrect, if you scan two issues of Famitsu per week, you could be caught up in around 22 years. And then you could die with a tombstone engraved with "He wasted his life. What was he thinking???"

    Once again, I just wanted to extend a sincere thanks to all of you who have participated in the CIVICMINDED Donation Drive Contest! This has provided a HUGE boost in helping me recover the freight shipping costs of my donation from a few months ago. It's been a real pleasure helping the RetroMags community and I'm already working on a second round of donations as we speak. Thank you all!

    Thank your for doing the editing on this. I was not very sure if my scans was up to the standards of retromags. I may have some other magazines that retromags may want when i scan them.

    OK, I am gonna say this just once. Please do not make me repeat myself. DO NOT FUCK WITH OTHER PEOPLES WEBSITES! I don't want to see any more shit in the forums or shoutbox about Archive, Jason (@textfiles) on Twitter. Or any of the rest of it. Look I get it, you guys bust your asses to preserve magazines, I am not paying you, you guys do this out of a love for preserving stuff, but I also don't need the bullshit from this fight. So if you are going to work yourself into knots when you see something you made.....elsewhere on the internet. Then please do not submit it here! I can't prevent people from coming into this website and grabbing a copy and putting it elsewhere. It happens all the time, it has happened since I started this site in 2005........and guess what.......in 2050 IT WILL STILL BE HAPPENING.We are finally at the point where we have ZERO restrictions on letting EVERYONE download EVERYTHING, and we still seem to find stuff to complain about. So again, chill the fuck out, take a Valium. I can't control what you say over at other sites. But this site will not be a spring board for some turf war.

    Newest upload [05/09/2020] - Weekly Famitsu 48 April 9 1988 https://archive.org/details/famitsu-1988-apr-9 Hey there, its been awhile. I've been too lazy/depressed to do anything other than hit a "like" button. I have a bunch of new #notmyscans to upload and I have a partially edited Xbox Famitsu that I should get around to finishing. There is also a giant box of old Japanese magazines that I never got around to mailing to E-Day that has some pretty special stuff.

    I've shared this with some people before but hadn't uploaded it to the Internet Wasteyard before, so here it is. This is a special edition of Comptiq from January 1987 which exclusively covers adult games. This would go on to be a popular mini-section of each issue for years to come (the section's pages were sealed together and had to be cut with scissors in order to be read, so that bookstore browsers had to actually buy the mag to get to the good stuff.) Personally, I find something charming and almost innocent about the primitive graphics on display here, despite the content. https://archive.org/details/comptiq026chottoetchinafukubukkurojanuary1987

    Here's another Sega Game Gear guide - this time a double guide for Shining Force Gaiden and Shining Force Gaiden II. https://archive.org/details/shiningforcegaidengaideniihisshoukouryakuhou

    Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict is a tactical RPG from Sega for the Game Gear that takes place between Shining Force and Shining Force II for the Mega Drive/Genesis, filling in the gap in the story. Unlike the other games in the series, this game never made it to the West, although fan translations exist. I've always meant to try the Shining Force games some day, since I can tolerate tactical RPGs much moreso than regular JRPGs, but I've never found/made the time. I'll guess I'll just put them on my massive list of things I might find time to do when I retire. https://archive.org/details/shiningforcegaidenfinalconflicthisshoukouryakuhou

    As all the strategy guides are edited and are currently being released, I have taken an editing break and am doing some manual scanning. There are still some items with @Crimsonfox and @jonphilmitch waiting to be edited (though during the pandemic there are much more important priorities for people so those might be a while). These manual scan will include several updated scans for VG&CE as some scans are 12 years old. Scanning all of these has reminded me how much scanning manually sucks.

    I grew up playing graphic adventures on the PC, so I never really got into Japanese-style adventure games, which are all first-person menu-driven affairs which for some reason are almost always some form of murder mystery story. The games usually revolve around picking the right dialog choice to progress the story, and everything must often be done in a strictly linear order, which just isn't meaty enough gameplay for my taste in adventure games. Still, they're quite popular (in Japan), and one of the longer-lasting series is that of Detective Saburo Jinguji, a series of around 45 games across various consoles and mobile devices which began in 1987 on the Famicom and continues to this day, the newest game having been released for the PS4 in 2019. This guide covers a 2005 Game Boy Advance entry in the series: Detective Saburo Jinguji: The Girl With the White Shadow. https://archive.org/details/tanteijinguujisaburoushiroikagenoshojoofficialinvestigationfile

    Hello, not posted here for a long time, scans are slowly proceeding, the new url is https://archive.org/details/@japanesemagazinesscans?sort=titleSorter 50th upload on sight! Meanwhile I acquired some italian magazine only to notice that they're slightly bigger than a4, so I'll need to get an a3 scanner but that's will be really far away in the future

    yep, I kinda knew about that link, I just wantt to point out that I have a full set of the regular issues, I don't have all the extra/special issues, so my uploads will have "holes" when it comes to the sequential numbering Currently scanning a Famitsu issue (these are huge ) and Gamest 3

    Newest upload [09/29/2019] - Famimaga June 1989 https://archive.org/details/famimagajune1989 It's all over man! This was the last gaming magazine I was able to pull from Perfect Dark that was not already archived elsewhere.

    OK, pretty sure this is the last Wizardry guide I have on hand (#37.) This is for a remake collection of the first 3 games. It says it's for the Saturn and PC editions, though I'm not sure why it wouldn't apply to the PlayStation version as well. And since it's (partly) a console game guide, and not a super-niche (in Japan) PC-only guide, this one gets the full color glossy page treatment. I played the Super Famicom edition of this collection, which believe it or not was the last one to be released and didn't yet exist when this guide was published. Imagine that - a SFC game released in 1999. Personally, I recommend the SFC version, and not just because of the spiffy English-translated ROM that's floating around. In my opinion, the 2D dungeon graphics (well, it's a 3D perspective, but 2D sprites) look much nicer than the 3D polygon dungeons of the PS, Saturn, and PC versions. But the dungeon maps and whatnot should be the same, so I see no reason that this guide wouldn't apply to the SFC version as well. https://archive.org/details/wizardryllylgamynsagavisualofficialguide

    For all of you video gamers out there, here's a much needed strategy guide to a super-complicated game - the GBA port of Final Fight. I don't want to spoil it or anything, but I've played this game and can tell you what it says: Walk to the right. Punch stuff. Repeat. If you want to read 90 pages of that anyway, here ya go: https://archive.org/details/finalfightonecompleteguidebook

    Relevant for this thread, I found Gamest Issue #125 and uploaded it to archive. This issue came with a poster which I don't believe is scanned. I believe this is a regular issue of Gamest much in the same way the previous SFII issue was dedicated to one game. I think later one they spun these issues off into the "Gamest Mook" line. If you check archive there's other issues of Gamest and Gamest mook floating around archive. https://archive.org/details/Gamest125Gokujuparodiusspecialissue

    Something a little different this time, but pretty cool. It's a manga history of the creation of Dragon Quest. You get to see Yuji Horii et.al as they first get into game design, travel to America and get blown away by Wizardry, witness the birth of the Famicom, and set about creating a game that Japanese RPGs still emulate to this day. Being manga, it is of course read right to left. https://archive.org/details/theroadtodragonquestmakingofdragonquestmanga_201908
