    Looks like VGBounceHouse's problem got fixed with this upload. Not sure if it was the work of @Phillyman or due to the recent software upgrade. I'm still S.O.L., though.

    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

    Been uploading a lot of Gamest material. Mook means "Magazine book", and the GM series was a line of strategy guides. Here's a site which lists all of them, there are 197 in the main line, and several more in the Plus line. None of these were scanned by me, it's just stuff I've been finding but as far as I can tell isn't on archive.org. Psychic Force Perfect Guidebook (Gamest Mook EX Vol. 12) Dungeons & Dragons Collection (Gamest Mook EX Vol. 83) Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara (Gamest Mook Vol. 34) Gamest 125 (Gokujō Parodius special issue) Treasure Gear Perfect Guide Book (Gamest Mook EX series vol. 25) Capcom Illustrations (Gamest Mook Vol. 17) Samurai Spirit illustrations (Gamest Mook World Series Vol. 18) Darius Gaiden (Gamest Mook Vol. 6)
