    This is yet another good reason to maintain personal copies of everything that looks interesting. I have no idea how many of the game magazines that I have downloaded are no longer available online (once I have them, there is no further need to look for them), but I do know that I have copies of other material that is no longer available. In some cases, content creators have chosen to monetize previously freely available content. I have no interest in sharing or redistributing any of this material, of course, but my own local, offline copy is utterly immune to anything short of a major catastrophe. I do not even trust cloud storage as I do not have full control over it.

    I dumped two full boxes' worth of PSMs in poor @MigJmz's lap (bet you regret opening that PM now, huh?), so there's a crap-ton more where this came from. *huggles* Areala

    This was the only issue between #1 and #138 that was not available somewhere online -- only the front and back covers and one internal page had previously been publicly available. The fact that it was an RPG-centric issue made its absence even more annoying. Thank-you for filling this gap!

    Looks like I just made your dreams come true then I actually had a scan of this from 2008. I guess it got lost in the shuffle of the multiple rebuilding of our databases and content. It wasn't a great scan so it's probably better that it was absent. Issue 100 isn't on the site yet, but is being released on May 29

    The Nintendo Power issue with SMB3 on the cover reminds me of 6th grade. Wonderful memories.

    Yup i got hit with a few of this on archive.org. Lets hope these strikes are from the actual publisher and not some random idiot posing as them. I wonder how they prove that these are from the actual people...? "You are only permitted to upload materials that you have the rights to. The Internet Archive disables accounts that repeatedly violate the copyrights of others." Do they not know that most everything on archive is taken / copyrighted content illegally uploaded?? LOL

    I read this issue when it first came out. My brother and I were convinced the joke had to be the presence of some unnamed hidden boss character in the Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo game. It seemed the most likely, considering the Sheng Long gag from a couple of years earlier. But of course, Akuma was legit and we were duped. If memory serves, the gag turned out to be a news blurb about Radio Shack re-issuing tons of Atari 2600 software due to consumer demand for less violent video games. (Edit: memory did not serve, as the "joke" this issue turns out to be the misspelling of "Streets of Rage 3" as "Streeets" on the cover. That's not an April Fools gag, that's a typo. That's the kind of crap we'd expect from a LamePro entry, not the mag that fooled us with the promise of Simon Belmont in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II but I guess that's what happens when Martin Alessi is no longer around to keep the tradition of quality going). *huggles* Areala

    This is one of my most memorable issues and this is a beautiful scan. I was obsessed with Mortal Kombat II and while waiting for it to come out on home consoles, I would stare at these preview magazines for hours.

    I had an issue of this despite never owning a Sony system at the time, it was something I got at a dentist's office they let me keep since it was a back issue. I don't remember the cover but there was a story on making an RPG with no cliches (you're not the chosen one and your hometown doesn't blow up) and they had an image of a healer who was covered in blood. Pretty sure it was late 2002, Vice City might've been on the cover?

    Lol no not even close to 500. Now that being said Trip Hawkins & 3DO were catering to more than just game developers. Hawkins also wanted 3DO to eventually be a living room "multimedia hub" for games, movies, educational software, and other things. So perhaps the writer counted developers based on that and overinflated the number to 500? Either that or the letter writer was a clueless bonkers 3DO fanboy....

    The only official takedown request we've received (that I'm aware of) came from Game Informer, who explained they have an archival system in place for their magazine already and requested that we not host issues here. That's why GI is marked "Not Allowed" in the database. When Nintendo went after the Internet Archive for hosting all the Nintendo Power scans a few years ago, we removed our copies as well. This was in preemptive self defense, since the Archive was hosting copies of our files with the credits page still intact, which could have pointed Nintendo at us, so NP went away while all that was being sorted out. With Nintendo Power having ceased publication almost ten years ago, this seems less likely to be an issue. *huggles* Areala

    The answer to all questions is "yes". Technically the first issue of EGM is "Electronic Gaming Monthly's 1989 Buyer's Guide", published in February 1989. This kicked off what is now known as EGM, and three months later in May, EGM #1 was born. The Buyer's Guide was a one-shot intended to test the waters, while EGM #1 was the first issue in what was intended to be a bimonthly, and later monthly, publication. Neither the 1989 Buyer's Guide or the 1989 Preview Guide (which is recorded as EGM #1 here) have official titles in their respective mastheads (the page where the staff and publication information are listed). EGM's second issue was published as "Volume 1, Number 2", meaning the second issue of its first year of publication, so we know that's officially their #2. The more I look into this, the more I wonder if we may actually have it backwards in the database. Since subsequent issues of the Buyer's Guide were published as actual numbers of EGM's monthly catalog, it may be more accurate to have the '89 Buyer's Guide set to issue #1, and the issue we have labeled as #1 relegated to a subsection, since the masthead seems to indicate that the Preview Guide was meant to be its own thing, while the Buyer's Guide was the regular feature. Of course, later in the magazine's life, the Preview Guide became incorporated into the standard issue numbering, so your guess here is as good as mine. But the point is that, yes, there was an issue of the magazine published prior to issue #1, it's the '89 Buyer's Guide, and we set the database entries up in chronological publication order because that's what seems to make the most sense. I hope that helps. *huggles* Areala

    So I've been combing through my back issues, and I've finally found an official statement from GamePro on the matter! In the letter column for issue 154 (July 2001), page 18, they printed this letter: The response: So there we have it, finally, confirmed in black and white from the editors themselves: the missing 10 numbers do correlate to the various one-offs, specials, and short-lived spin-offs published by GamePro in the past, and there the matter can finally rest because E-Day has been right all along! Gawd, what a horrible thought... In any case, I've updated the blurb on the GamePro Issues 81 - 90 entry in the database with this explanation, and hopefully this is the last we'll need to worry about it. *huggles* Areala

    I think we should leave it as it is. Posting a new topic wondering where the missing GamePros are without doing a search for the 15 other topics that answer their question is a rite of passage for newbs.
