    I'm not sure whether this is one for RetroMags or not. Arcade Express was a bi-weekly newsletter from Electronic Games only available through the mail. Each issue was eight pages, two 11x17" pages folded in half. I was a subscriber for most of the run but have only come across part of my collection. I have gone ahead and made a RetroMags-formatted archive of the first issue I dug up: http://vgpavilion.com/mags/1983/01/30ae/Arcade-Express-Issue-013-Jan-30-1983.cbr This is Issue 13 from January 30, 1983. These are the issues I currently have in front of me: As Arcade Express Volume 1, Number 14 - February 13, 1983 Volume 1, Number 15 - February 27, 1983 Volume 1, Number 16 - March 13, 1983 Volume 1, Number 17 - March 27, 1983 Volume 1, Number 18 - April 10, 1983 Volume 1, Number 19 - April 24, 1983 Volume 1, Number 20 - May 8, 1983 Volume 1, Number 21 - May 22, 1983 Volume 1, Number 22 - June 5, 1983 Volume 1, Number 24 - July 3, 1983 As Electronic Games Hotline Volume 2, Number 1 - August 14, 1983 Volume 2, Number 2 - August 28, 1983 Volume 2, Number 7 - November 6, 1983 Volume 2, Number 9 - December 4, 1983 Volume 2, Number 10 - December 18, 1983 Volume 2, Number 14 - February 12, 1984 Volume 2, Number 26 - July 20, 1984 While mostly news they did do reviews. It's interesting to line up major announcements with when they appeared in Electronic Games magazine as a function of lead time. I haven't done any searching around the web for previous archival attempts but plan to scan the ones I have. Does this have a place here at RetroMags?

    I'm guessing no one here is particularly interested, but I'm gonna keep uploading Wizardry guides for a while yet. Wizardry IV, released in 1987, turns many RPG conventions on their heads. It places the player in the role of the villain defeated at the end of Wizardry I, and rather than descending deeper into a dungeon on a quest to kill the big bad, you start at the bottom of the dungeon and must work your way up and out, killing heroes which were based on actual player characters from character disks sent to Sir Tech Software by players who had completed previous Wizardry games. It is also widely regarded as one of the most difficult RPGs ever made. https://archive.org/details/wizardry4playingmanual

    I got a request from RetroDefense to fill in the two holes in the Arcade Express archive and I decided to bump this thread in case anyone else could help with the missing issues. I have finished Issue 16, March 13, 1983: My archive is viewable here: http://vgpavilion.com/mags/1983/03/13ae/pages/ You'll find my CBZ and PDF along with a ZIP with the TIFF scans and PSD edits. I did this with a 600dpi Document mode scan in Black & White mode and believe it came out fine, but if I need to do them greyscale or with a different B&W cutoff to improve them please let me know.

    I have uploaded 2 more guides for you this morning, both for Wizardry III, first released in 1983 for the Apple II, though these guides are for the 1987 Japanese PC-98 release. https://archive.org/details/wizardry3playingmanual https://archive.org/details/wizardry3monstermanual

    Just in time for you Sega fans to use with your Genesis Minis is the guide to Wonder Boy in Monster World, or Wonder Boy V: Monster World III as it's not-at-all-confusingly titled in Japan. https://archive.org/details/wonderboyvmonsterworldiiiofficialguidebook

    Here's a guidebook from 1990 for Emerald Dragon, an RPG first released for Japanese computers in December 1989. It was eventually ported to the PC Engine CD in 1994 and the Super Famicom in 1995. https://archive.org/details/EmeraldDragonCompleteGuideBook
