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

    That's because they just stole the box art from the game instead of hiring an artist out of the yellow pages for the low low price of $19.99 and a sandwich.

    Hi Kitsunebi, Just wanted to thank you for all the Japanese gaming mags you have made available here. I recently discovered this site and have just finished grabbing pretty much all your Japan-related uploads. I'm very interested in video game history, and of course without the Eastern perspective we really only have half the story. There is a lot of effort put towards game preservation these days (and rightly so), but it seems preservation of the surrounding ephemera is sadly lacking. There is so much exclusive and interesting info locked away in these mags, from the contemporaneous dev/artist/musician interviews and studio tours, to custom artwork and ads, not to mention the endless guides. Really an invaluable resource, especially for the 'golden age' from PC Engine to PS1/Dreamcast. So, Thanks!

    Originally Coury lent this issue to Chris from Classic Gaming Quarterly for a read through video. I had lent Chris the GamePro Celebrity Gamer magazine for the same reason. When I found out he had this issue I asked him if he could ask Coury if I could borrow it to scan. Coury agreed without ever speaking to me or even knowing who exactly it was going to. Looks like we have a reputation of being trustworthy! I think I scanned it in one night and had it in the mail back to him within a couple of weeks from getting it.

    I own this one. But seeing as it's stored in a box in a faraway land, its nice to have a digital copy in a higher resolution than the PDFs at the CGW Museum. Thank you, sirs.

    Super Mario Bros. 2. The Legend of Zelda. Contra. Gauntlet. Double Dragon and more. Nintendo doesn't get more classic than this. If you don't love this issue, you have no soul.

    No kidding. The Versus Books Perfect Guide for Resident Evil 2 often tops $100. Even this one here, the unauthorized guide to the first game, will usually set the buyer back ~$15 or so. What's especially amusing to me is that Prima produced both an Authorized and an Unauthorized guide to the RE Director's Cut. The Unauthorized book covers the game's initial release in 1997, while the Authorized one covers the DualShock re-release of 1998. Outside of analog stick support, they're exactly the same game, written by the same guy, but Capcom got Prima to pay money so they could be the 'authorized' publisher of the guide one year after they were the 'unauthorized' publisher of the previous guide. Ahhh, the 90's... *huggles* Areala

    I am thankful for this site and the nostalgia it brings. I am looking forward to reading these old Nintendo Power issues and mastering the games I could never afford as a kid.

    Not really interested in doing the touch up stuff if I'm being honest, would rather spend that time scanning. But happy to put them on the FTP for someone else to fix and release if they want to. I don't care about the credit, just want this stuff out there.

    Checked it out, and although there is still warping here and there, a lot of it got straightened out. What a pain in the ass that must have been! Good work, MigJmz!

    Not to spoil it for you, but although there is some FF6 in the issue, the main reason it's given such a huge font on the cover (aside from selling copies by hyping the #1 game at the time) was due to the inclusion of a supplement which apparently covered the final dungeon of the game. Unfortunately, this supplement wasn't included with my copy. The mag itself was thrown in as a freebie with an auction lot of a different magazine.

    After being totally lazy about it for the past several years, I've recently started actively studying the language again (natural acquisition only gets you so far). Even so, I'm a long way off from wanting to try my hand at translating something so huge. And if you're looking for a super-accurate translation, forget it. It's pretty much impossible to "translate" Japanese to English (and vice versa, I would imagine), since there are ways of thinking and speaking that simply don't carry over. I've had people hand me something in Japanese before and ask for an English translation, only to be frustrated when I have to tell them, "Look, we simply would never say this in English - I'm going to have to re-write it in a way that sounds natural while getting the general idea across." Which is adaptation, and in my opinion, a far more important part of the process than translation (although granted, translation is the starting point.) It sounds like in the case of Divi Dead, though, they went beyond "adaptation" and into drunken Mad-Libs territory in a few places.

    Golly, I wonder who she could be? Hopefully she, uh, they find it so that she...er...that person can enjoy reading it in the privacy of her own room...

    Here's another one I owned as a kid and only remember upon seeing this image. The "Final Fantasy III Best RPG ever!" got my attention since I wasn't thrilled or impressed by the NES original, and the American SNES Final Fantasy II (IV) was actually a really awesome game and deserves a better remake/expansion/retranslation than it's received in all the years since. This magazine actually got me interested in asking for the "Final Fantasy III" as a gift, but even as a kid I could tell that something was up with the translation. Some lines were so cringe worthy and embarrassing in my mind even as a kid. I mean stuff like "son of a submariner", "run run, or you'll be well done!" and just overall stuff like that I mean, really?! I used to hold onto old gaming magazines like this as outside reading material, sometimes you found more information by more thoroughly going through it from cover to cover. This magazine is totally worth reading for its hugely detailed section on the American Final Fantasy III, just to look at how it's changed, and then go over to legends of localization to see what a terrible job the translators have consistently done to all of the Final Fantasy's.

    Excellent scanning work as always E-Day, but my lord, is that some of the worst cover artwork to which I've ever born witness. Unless the art director specifically requested "Tantrum Baby Fred Flintstone vs. Blue-Dyed, Human-Toothed Chihuahua vs. The Mad Moustache", I think it's safe to consider this one the most epic fail in the history of game magazine covers. Fair?
