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

    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

    Well, as you know, scanning magazines takes a lot of money and time. I've spent over $1000 and god knows how many hours of my free time working to provide stuff for our members (and everyone else, really, since you don't have to join RM to download our releases). I get nothing in return other than the occasional thank you (usually about 1 for every 50 downloads.) That's a commitment of time and money with no reward that VERY few people are willing to make. Then you've got people like the community of Japanese traders who justify the expense/time of digitizing their collections by considering the resultant files to be their personal property which they can then "sell" to recoup their losses (in this case, by trading with other like-minded individuals). Would the world be a richer place if people were willing to share their resources selflessly? Well, sure. But as long as we've got millions of starving, destitute people out there in the world being ignored by people with the means to help, it seems a little silly to get TOO upset over someone hoarding magazines. Most people are selfish. It's just human nature.

    And here's the best of the series (supposedly - I've never played it), and the only one deemed worthy to be included in the recent Genesis/Mega Drive Mini systems' selection of games - Phantasy Star IV (or Phantasy Star: The End of the Millennium as it was called in Japan.) https://archive.org/details/phantasystarivgameguidebook

    You have no idea the sheer jubilant pleasure I get imagining that some Japanese magazine scan hoarders are getting pissed off noticing this stuff show up at the Internet Archive. Keep it up. Hmmm...that does pose a problem, doesn't it. Lots of Japanese mags have Japanese titles, and even ones that have words written alphabetically on the cover are often written in Japanese when people list them in auctions or otherwise write about them online. I wonder how much you're overlooking...

    No other magazine epitomizes the decline and homogenization of the game industry in Japan moreso than Comptiq, in my opinion. It launched in 1983 and was a magazine exclusively about computer games for over a decade. The issues from this time period are literally the only Japanese magazines I own which are interesting for me to flip through. But sometime around 1994-1997, the magazine began to change. The focus shifted away from computer games and began to focus more on game characters from PC and console titles. The reason being, of course, that it was during that time period that computer gaming died in Japan. In the rest of the world, the PC was making great strides during those years - super VGA, advanced sound cards, and rapidly improving 3d graphics ensured that the PC had at last finally emerged as a technically superior system for gaming over home consoles. But in Japan, the PC never caught on as a gaming system. Windows 95 hit the market and PCs quickly took over as the standard for home and business computing, but computer games remained relegated to the PC-98 computers for the most part, which ceased production in 2000. So it was during that 1994-1997 era, just as PC gaming was exploding in the West, that it began to die in Japan, with the development/release of computer games becoming less and less, and being replaced more and more by cheaply produced cookie-cutter visual novels. Hence, without any "real" games to actually report on, Comptiq switched gears and became a magazine full of illustrations of visual novel characters, similar to Dengeki G's Magazine. Sure, Japan still has consoles. But I can't help but believe that the games industry would be richer overall if computer gaming had survived and not EVERY single game released in Japan had to first be approved by Sony or Nintendo.
