ADULTS ONLY This issue will be of particular interest to at least one person around here, as it features a two-page preview of Divi Dead. This issue also presented an unusual problem in that the last 40 pages or so look as if some kind of mold had eaten away a chunk of paper at the bottom of each page. Without spending too much time trying to recreate the missing areas, I think I managed to make it fairly unnoticeable if you aren't looking carefully. For anyone interested in knowing what I had to deal with, check out the last two pages (the inside-back cover and back cover), which I left with the missing areas as is. You can download the demo disc at archive.org here. Be aware that it requires Win95 to run. Please feel free to comment or hit the "like" button if you download this or any other file. That kind of encouragement is really the only motivation we have to keep scanning

The main features: Parasite Eve (25 pages and a poster!) Resident Evil 2 (18 pages) Tekken 3 (10 pages) Xenogears (8 pages) Bushido Blade 2 (6 pages) Final Fantasy V (6 pages) By the way, the fold-out poster I stitched together looks pretty great. If anyone is interested in having a full-size copy (much bigger than the one included in this file), I uploaded it here: https://mega.nz/#!EBxjzCpS!Yv2RRJsutCUNNUuPDZxjs8-MBHFzbfOzmRO0JX6KfnE It's full 600dpi at 6026x9100px and could be printed out as an actual poster by a printing service if you were so inclined.

The front and back cover of this mag were in pretty gruesome condition. I've done what I could. Also, please note that while the mag itself is complete, I believe this issue shipped with a supplement covering part of Final Fantasy VI, which was not included with my copy.

    Game Players Issue 084 (May 1996) With reviews of such acclaimed classics as Creature Shock, Cyberdillo, and The Raven Project, this issue of Game Players is a big ol' slice of nostalgia pie for the 90s kid in all of us. I kid of course, The Raven Project is next issue. (Seriously though, this issue reviews Worms, Earthworm Jim 2, and Super Mario RPG and previews Tomb Raider, Turok: the Dinosaur Hunter, and Final Fantasy VII).

Also the gavas bucks page was missing, so he provided a scan of that page to make the mag complete. For anyone who missed it in my forum thread, Gavas were a big scam run by Famitsu to trick kids into thinking they could win fabulous prizes by buying every issue of Famitsu that hit the stands. Below is a closer look at just how impossible getting those prizes actually was. Listed are the prize, the amount of Gavas needed to win the prize, the number of Famitsu issues you would need to purchase in order to have enough Gavas, and approximately how much that many issues of Famitsu would cost. These are all in 1988 dollars, so it would be much more today. As of May 1988 (these are not all of the prizes, btw): A Famitsu Pencil Case - 780 Gavas - 49 issues - approx. $195 A Famitsu T-Shirt - 1680 Gavas - 105 issues - approx. $420 A Famicom Game - 2900 Gavas - 182 issues - approx. $728 A Famicom System - 9800 Gavas - 613 issues - approx. $2,452 A Sega Master System - 11200 Gavas - 700 issues - approx. $2,800 A PC Engine (TurboGrafx16) System - 16500 Gavas - 1,032 issues - approx. $4,128 It should also be worth noting that Famitsu was bi-weekly at this point. So assuming you really wanted that PC Engine and you bought one copy of every issue that hit the stands, you would expect to finally have enough Gavas approximately... 38 years later. So...sometime in 2026. Of course, Famitsu eventually went weekly, of course, so you actually would have been able to finally get that PC Engine sometime in 2009. Well, except that PC Engines had long since ceased production by then. *This scan was made for everyone, so please download it, share it with your friends and enjoy!

    HAJIMIMASHITE!!! Oops. Well, despite this typo (the very first word printed in the mag - the correct word is hajimemashite), we welcome you nonetheless to another gem from the early days of anime fandom in the West. This issue went through two rounds of edits - one from PirateDragon and one from yours truly (kitsunebi), with an invaluable assist from Areala getting this uploaded while I'm waiting for help getting some login issues straightened out. Enjoy.

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. *This scan was made for everyone, so please download it, share it with your friends and enjoy!
