    This week on Guides For Games Least Likely To Ever Be Released Outside of Japan come Terrors and Terrors 2, text based horror-adventure games starring a bunch of Japanese pop "stars" - released for the WonderSwan and WonderSwan Color, respectively. Kudos to the second game's guide for acknowledging the only reason anyone ever actually bought these games by filling half of the book with photographs of the stars wearing bikinis and flirting with the camera. https://archive.org/details/terrorsperfectguide https://archive.org/details/terrors2officialguidebook

    Bump; I've just started scanning and cleaning up the covers and first 10 pages of Official US Playstation Magazine, November 1999. I don't mind posting my progress here; may I have one of the mods change the thread name to "Phanterm's Work Thread"? Less clutter that way, though I'm also happy to start a new thread.

    He needs an A3 flatbed is what I am reading into this conversation. They aren't as cheap but there are a couple of options that don't involve buying a piece of crap Mustek scanner (avoid those like the plague) Try and find a Brother MFCJ6530DW all in one. They have a good A3 scanner

    To bump my own thread, just this afternoon, at a local thrift shop, I purchased two (unscanned) issues of the Official PlayStation Magazine from 2004 (for Cdn$.99 each, about US$.72). I also purchased an issue of EGM (already scanned) and I passed on an issue of GamePro (also already scanned) and some issues of an Xbox magazine (about which I do not care). Alas, the magazine pages are too big to fit my current flatbed scanner, but at last I can finally join the august ranks of those members with issues waiting to be scanned.

    I mean, it's the Internet Archive, which is probably some huge server farm with petabytes of hard drives. I've started uploading my scans there because it's pretty much guaranteed to be up 24/7. I haven't had any problems with them, but I don't think it's a good idea to limit where you upload your mags because that's like putting all your eggs in one basket. I'm thankful for them because up until now, I've been putting my scans on Nyaa torrents and another site. I don't mind if people reupload my scans, either, as long as credit is at least given. At the end of the day, we're here to share content, right? It's not like anyone here is making money off of it (hopefully).

    The magazines are not in a private collection, they're owned by the nonprofit I run and are in a library that will eventually be open to researchers for free. Just because I don't have the time to scan full magazines (or the willingness to destroy any binding in our library copies) doesn't mean they're lost, it just means they're not scanned.

    If I've understood correctly, I can't do anything before the main database entries are added. And that it'll take a lot of work to add even a single entry. So... priorities. Pelit, Pelaaja, Pelit vuosikirja, and PC Pelaaja are the ones that probably should be added first. Since those had gaming as the main focus. I'll dig up a list of issue numbers if needed, just lemme know. Mikrobitti and C-Lehti are about 50% gaming content. Printti was only about 20% gaming. No reviews, but occasional maps and solutions. Not sure if site-relevant. Don't know enough about Joyboy (probably 100% gaming), Micropost, Enter, and Kompuutteri Kaikille: the last two are likely gaming-light. As for the hobbyist / game store 'magazines': Trioposti and Com Club were mostly focused on games, MSX Uutiset was gaming/hardware. And as I mentioned, Nintendo-lehti, Pelimestari, and PC Gamer (Suomi) are translations of English mags and therefore not high priority for archival. Not sure if those are even worth adding here.

    Thanks! I went with the bottom one when I heard "easiest." I had to unlearn some of my emulator habits like using save states. There's no need with unlimited virtual quarters! Also, while I at first lamented not having 3 friends to join me in those classic 4-player beat-em-ups, I realized I could just set all 4 players to the same buttons on my joypad and control everyone simultaneously. Sure, only the one I'm looking at is playing with any degree of skill, but the others are all jumping around and hitting stuff by accident, so it's kind of like playing with friends who are video game spazzes, which is almost just how I remember it being back in the day. And anytime I feel like playing a different character, all I have to do is shift my attention to them. Pretty sweet.

    I agree. It's extremely unlikely that it is a Dead Space ad. All Dead Space promotional material uses CGI artwork. Those photographed toes give it away as a different game. Plus, it looks familiar to me as well, and I had stopped reading gaming mags years before Dead Space was released. I can't read the toe tag, but unless it includes the name of the game and assorted copyright information, then this is definitely part of a multi-page ad and probably not a back cover advertisement. It's pretty uncommon to advertise a game without telling you what game is being advertised.

    Goodness. What a question. I'm not really sure how to answer. In the West, almost all game design innovations happened on computers. Any innovation on the console side of things was almost always of Japanese origin. Which isn't surprising really. PCs never really caught on as a gaming platform in Japan, so all of their designer talent went towards developing console titles. Whereas in the West, PC game development offered much more freedom to the designers than they would have developing for consoles, so that's where most of the talent concentrated their efforts. All of Japan's great game designers are known for their arcade and console titles. Most great Western designers are known for their PC games. They've got Miyamoto, we've got Meier. Of course, "ahead of its time" doesn't always mean great (or even good.) I recently uploaded some advertisements for Castle Wolfenstein (NOT Wolfenstein 3D, btw). An innovative game, but I would never claim it was a good one . Released WAAAAYY back in 1981 on the Apple II computer, Castle Wolfenstein is particularly notable for two things. It was the first game to include digitized speech. It sounds terrible, but is sort of understandable and pretty impressive when you consider how primitive the hardware was it was running on. Also, it was the first game to incorporate elements of stealth gameplay. Nazi guards not only had line of sight awareness of the player, but they could also be alerted to your presence if you fired your weapon. Finding and wearing a Nazi uniform would allow you to sneak past some enemies without being detected. Again, I wouldn't call the game entertaining (at least, not now. Perhaps it was more fun 37 years ago?) But it certainly was ahead of its time.
