    I hope nobody minds, but I've decided to draw the line at adding arcade card game magazines to the database. They're big business in Japanese arcades (they'd have to be to support multiple magazines devoted to them), but since we've never had anything similar in the West (to my knowledge), and they can't be played by anyone not actually standing inside of an arcade in Japan, I just don't know who would possibly want to read about them here. Especially since they seem to mostly focus on soccer games, and from what I've gathered in forum posts through the years, most Retromags readers are adamantly opposed to the existence of sports and would like to see all athletic activities and games based upon them banished from the universe. (I kid but...no, no I don't. You all really seem to despise sports.) So none of these: Of course not ALL arcade card games are soccer-themed, even if those are (obviously) the most popular. And although I'm not interested in arcade games myself (the only game I ever play in arcades is Taiko no Tatsujin), it's still worth investigating, if only to realize that there is an entire subcategory of games in Japan that Westerners are never exposed to. https://gamecola.net/2017/05/playing-scannable-card-games-in-japan/ https://www.beastsofwar.com/video-games/tabletop-otaku-arcade-card-games/ http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2018/05/feature_diving_down_the_rabbit_hole_with_japans_arcade-based_trading_card_games

    EDIT A bunch of them are here, including that one. (Not gonna count. Some of the files aren't PDFs. A lot, though.) https://archive.org/details/MSXMagazine-Japan

    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
