    ***Family Computer Magazine is (unlike most other Japanese magazines) printed in Japanese right-to-left format. For those unaware, that means that the front cover is where the back cover is on a Western magazine, and thus the spine is on the right side. Once opened, the pages are read beginning with the page on the right and moving across to the left page. When using a CBR reader to read a single page at a time, this won't cause too many problems, but if you put the reader into two-page mode, the left and right facing pages will be in the wrong order. Thus, it is strongly suggested that when reading this magazine, you set your CBR reader to it's Japanese mode (almost all CBR readers have one for reading manga), which will automatically display the pages in the correct order. For anyone unfamiliar with this mag - it was the first Famicom/NES magazine in the world, predating Famitsu by a year. And although Famitsu would ultimately end up out-lasting Family Computer Magazine by expanding their coverage to all consoles, from a collector's viewpoint, issues of Famimaga (as it is usually referred to) seem to typically be more desireable/valuable than Famitsu issues of similar vintage.

    ADULT CONTENT This issue: 2 words (for our resident warrior nun): DIVI DEAD I uploaded the demo disc to the Internet Archive here: https://archive.org/details/TechGianApril1998 Be warned that it is designed for WIN95 PCs, so unless you have experience running WIN95 software on modern machines, you'll be unlikely to get most of the demos working.

    I got a request from RetroDefense to fill in the two holes in the Arcade Express archive and I decided to bump this thread in case anyone else could help with the missing issues. I have finished Issue 16, March 13, 1983: My archive is viewable here: http://vgpavilion.com/mags/1983/03/13ae/pages/ You'll find my CBZ and PDF along with a ZIP with the TIFF scans and PSD edits. I did this with a 600dpi Document mode scan in Black & White mode and believe it came out fine, but if I need to do them greyscale or with a different B&W cutoff to improve them please let me know.

Of course Tifa won "Hottest Game Babe". Strangely enough, Lara Croft wasn't the runner-up on this one, but Laura Lewis from Enemy Zero on the Saturn was. Clearly nobody on staff was comfortable picking a hot dude for their 'best hunk' category, as their runner-up is Abe from Abe's Oddyssee. Umm...Duke Nukem, anybody? Anyone else find it ironic that the magazine which has had Lara Croft on their cover more times than anybody else is also throwing a "Most Overexposed" award No surprise, the PlayStation and Game Boy come out the clear winners in the battle royale, while the Sega Saturn and Genesis bring up the rear. Both the Miyamoto biography and behind-the-scenes look at controller creation are fascinating pieces which remain relevant even today. The super game list doesn't list everything the magazine ever reviewed. They omit plenty of software from the smaller systems like the CD-i and the Neo Geo, and ignore everything prior to the 16-bit generation, but still...this is one incredible index with some great artwork thrown in throughout, and some little side-bars about titles worth a second look, and miniature essays on subjects like why Link's Awakening is the best Zelda game. Really cool! Saturn Bomberman supports up to 10 players simultaneously. 'Best Tricks of the Year' includes a massive sidebar detailing ten great internet sites to use for finding cheat codes. Needless to say, they're all defunct at this point. Man, remember Happy Puppy? People are still trying to find that Lara Croft nude code. EGM2 did it as an April Fools joke in issue 34. Somebody forgot to label the cheat codes for Command & Conquer and Crusader: No Remorse in the Saturn section. This makes it look like Bug Too! is an absolutely insane game. According to a sidebar, the Konami Code is the most-overused cheat code of all time.

    I was wondering why they decorated the disc with coffee beans until I noticed the clitorises. I already threw the disc in the trash, but after pasting the pic into this post, I noticed the line on the bottom of the disc which says "*Please be careful with products similar to coffee beans"
