    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.

    Ah yes, I remember "Super Mario 4". Looking at those first images.....you knew that game was going to be epic!

    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.

    For those curious, this is the issue where GamePro debuted their iconic rating system.

    Japan wasn't guilt-free of stealing cover art themselves. Except in this case it was straight-up plagiarism. Sort of like a D-student thinking they can just change a few words while copying from an encyclopedia and turn it in as their original research paper. Ravenloft module: 1983 Castlvania II: 1987 "Just have Dracula turn his head and everyone will think this is original art!" Riiiiiiight....

    As the file description says, this isn't a new scan but is simply pages 35-56 of Electronic Gaming Monthly Issue 6, which has been available here for some time. It was extracted and given a separate release here for the benefit of anyone only interested in Sega coverage or anyone interested in seeing what might be considered the prototype for Mega Play magazine, which launched 10 months later.

    Thank you for this scan To me this is very interesting as I did not have access to Japanese PlayStation magazines at the time of release.

    So excited about this. My copy is heavily beat up and missing a page, so now it's nice to see the complete version!

    I was such a lonely kid growing up. I lived inside these magazines. I used to take them to school and look through them all day long. I had a whole stack of EGM, it was my favorite. 1990 was a magical year for video games. I was a Genesis fanatic.

    This magazine is one of the last magazines I bought before I finished mourning the death of Sega and began to save for my first Computer. The feeling I get in this issue is either you love Dreamcast and the online sports games or you have Playstation 1 and maybe you're little sister's Nintendo 64 but life is dull and we don't care about anything until Playstation 2 is out. For reference, Diablo 2 was released June 2000, 6 months before this. Madden 2001 on PS1 looked like last decade stuff while I was enjoying 2K online with friends. Pokemon Red and Yellow are on the 1991 Gameboy original and is revolutionary. It was also being emulated on a Pentium 33 Mhz Preview for Jet Grind Radio. Another game I anticipated and enjoyed as an original idea. It came after the Texas Instruments powered Playstation 1 and before the respectable Playstation 2 which was loaded up with Japanese RPG's and favorites like Off Road Fury..

    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!
