  3. No problem, I'm glad to contribute this great issue! You'll probably also be excited to know I'm currently editing T&T issue 004!

  4. I had very nearly decided to offer up my copy of this for preservation. Thank you, @MkMoveList, for archiving this one for all of us! *huggles* Areala

  5. Just an FYI, this file appears to be missing pages 3-4, which are each half of a two-page ad. *huggles* Areala EDIT: The pages are included, but are out of place as pages 95-96 in the file.

  8. I've never seen a non-US version of GamePro. This is really fascinating. Same fonts and avatar names and images, but different review text. I compared the review for Virtua Fighter to the one in the August 1995 issue from the US, thinking they would use the same review copy. But it's completely different. Different screenshots too. I wonder who the British counterparts were writing under the American avatar names.

  17. I want to write more about the significance of this particular issue of PS Extreme later, but for now please know that you, E-Day and CIVICMINDED have ended a roughly 6 year search for an obscure issue of PS Extreme that one could not even find a cover image of on Google images or really a reference too anywhere, even on Ebay. I'm serious when I say this particular issue is NOWHERE on the interwebz - and it's weird as most everything is, right? At least on some obscure corner. But not this issue (trust me I've spent years trying to find it). I get that PS Extreme may not be the most 'significant' gaming mag out there (especially compared to the likes of EGM and Nintendo Power) but for me, this particular issue of this particular publication is the holy grail for me. It hits at a particular time in my life where I was heavily into gaming mags and also was a pretty significant time of change for me (was about to go out of state for College for the first time). I don't know what happened to the copy I bought in late August of 1999 at a Wal-Mart in Anchorage, Alaska (like most other gaming mags I ever had), but I suspect I left it behind when I left for Oregon to college and was eventually tossed in the bin. Like most of us here on Retromags, I think most of us have 'that' issue that most resonates with our past and makes us fade into (if only at least tempoarily) that irrecoverable past that we sometimes crave .This issue was it for me. Thank you E-day for scanning this, thank you CIVICMINDED for donating this. You are gods to me at this moment. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

  19. It was a lot of work but it's awesome seeing what the pages look like before they are put on paper. @TheRedEye deserves thanks for providing me with the files. Hopefully he'll have time one day to provide more. Or you could visit his office and copy the hundreds of discs for me and mail them up. I have reserve funds to cover all that

  21. No worries. At least it's a relatively simple fix, since the actual pages are there, just in the wrong place.

  23. I think "Silent Hill 2" and "Silent Hill 3" were the last times I truly went nuts over gaming magazines, and bought up anything I could find that talked about either game. Two of the best PS2 gaming experiences, absolutely top-notch games start to finish. Love 'em!

  24. That's because the cover artist is none other than Adam Warren, who illustrated Gen13 through the end of its run in the 90's.

  28. I enjoy releasing the way off topic and odd magazines. I have two boxes of that kind of stuff sitting around, including TV Guides for Ottawa. Those should have almost no interest! I also have a small stack of something from the 1950s. Maybe people will be curious about those...

  29. Somewhere out there, someone is going to stumble across this and be like, "I haven't seen this in thirty years! Thanks, Retromags!" I am not that person, but well done anyway, @E-Day

  30. Ah, news of the first E3 and the number heard 'round the world ("$299"), a body-slam from which Sega never truly recovered. Memories are strong with this one. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, Polygon put together a great little 8-minute segment on why and how badly Sony boned Sega with that two-second speech a couple of years ago: *huggles* Areala

  32. Me too. I bought it on BlockBuster Video when I found out that I got 8th place and received my prize during the competition of video games of the time playing SNES games. At the same time that I when to the store to collect my prize I met by accident (coincident) the boy that won 1st place and also was buying a copy of this magazine.

  36. Thank you so much for uploading this and other Xgamer editions, I have been attempting to locate them for years, maybe even a decade...seriously, you’re doing good work, and I will donate as soon as I’m able, because this is a good endeavor. Happy Holidays.

  38. Not my first game mag, but this was the first issue of EGM I bought. That night one of my brothers had to go to the ER and I read this completely through in the waiting room, the first of many times I read it. Thanks for uploading, I love getting to read it again!

  44. Nice work E-Day! If only I could I'd give you a Nobel Peace Prize for all your hard work preserving culture. You're something of a digital archeologist and librarian. Thank you so much!
