    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.

    Not being a NES/SNES gamer, you probably haven't perused too many of the magazines that covered them. If you did, it's pretty obvious they were not targeted at adults. For that matter, neither were the systems or games. While there were most definitely adults who played them as well, 8-bit and 16-bit systems and games were exclusively marketed towards kids and teens (in the USA, at any rate.) During those years, adults who played games did so on computers for the most part. The PlayStation era is when the age range began to skew older, although it was mostly due to a generation of Nintendo/Sega gamers who had come of age but were still interested in playing games. And as the age gap between console gamers and computer gamers began to disappear, so did the differences in the types of games which appeared on those platforms. Fast forward to today when there's virtually no difference between PC gaming and console gaming (again, in the USA.)

    I was not playing console games in the 1990s -- I essentially skipped from the 2600 to the PlayStation -- so I never paid any attention to the NES and SNES magazines. That said, does anyone have a sense of how well titles like this sold BITD? Personally, I would only have purchased an occasional issue if there was in-depth coverage of a game that I had (or that I planned to get). I simply could not justify buying it on a regular basis, much less subscribing. There would be many issues with no relevant content. Obviously, today with generally much larger collections, and emulation, the situation is much different.

    Thanks to the kitsunebi insights and some gimp trial and error (too cheap for photoshop and their creative cloud subscription nonsense) I managed to get a readable and nice looking of the 2 pages spread I had to cut I probably could have scanned a couple of Gamest issues instead of this whole editing madness luckily the Famitsu issue I scanned has only few of these fold out

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. By default, ScanSnap paper size is set to "automatic detection." This is actually autocrop. By manually selecting a paper size, you are turning autocrop off. If you select a size larger than the page you're scanning, it will ensure that you're scanning every part of the page. Unless my calculations are incorrect, if you scan two issues of Famitsu per week, you could be caught up in around 22 years. And then you could die with a tombstone engraved with "He wasted his life. What was he thinking???"

    PC Gamers from 2005 are new to be allowed here but who am I kidding, no one around here scans PC Gamer anyway. I actually stopped gaming for the most part prior to 2005, so I'm not gonna be much help, but maybe some of you youngsters out there who are familiar with these new-fangled MMO thingamajiggers (like, those of you who didn't have to google what a "raid" is) can help.

    Finding general interest magazines is hard. Since scanning a magazine is such a pain in the ass, typically only people with a passion for a specific hobby or subject are going to be willing to make the effort to do so. To that end it's probably simpler to find scans of model railroad magazines than of something like what you're looking for. Good luck!

    I'd focus your efforts on magazines in English if I were you, then. Or just pick any magazine at random. People interested in, for example, the Dreamcast, will happily download any issue from a Dreamcast magazine, regardless of the specific games covered inside.

    That's an interesting point of view. If you prefer the still-bound flatbed scanner look, you could take our releases and open them in Photoshop or some other editing software. Select about an inch-worth of space along the gutter side of the page. Then apply a strong blur filter to that section as well as a darkened gradient. Finally, use the warp command to distort it. Voila! Seriously, though, even though we would never allow that sort of thing here, there are plenty of people who can recognize that a low-quality scan is better than no scan at all, so uploading it to a file repository like archive.org isn't b-team at all (that would suggest that they are a team to begin with.) It's just a place where anyone can upload files without needing to worry about if the quality meets any kind of standards or if they have permission top upload the files in the first place. Like torrents. Without the torrents. It's where I upload things that I didn't scan myself. So by all means, scan your stuff in whatever way you're comfortable with and upload it there. I guarantee there will be people who appreciate it.

    You meant to say GameFan, but yeah. As for Retro Gamer, at this point, the way I see it, the majority of people still reading gaming mags are old timers who grew up reading them and still like holding something made of paper in their hands. Younger generations aren't buying gaming mags, and as people get older, some of them (like myself) stop caring about new systems and games - and thus stop being interested in reading new gaming mags as well - which is why their circulation numbers continue to dwindle. By that same logic, however, a print mag focused on retro gaming should have the most lasting appeal with older gamers who still read print mags, so who knows? Retro Gamer may well be the Last Mag Standing when all is said and done.

    I disagree, but then I'm of the opinion that readable is just fine. And an unedited or roughly edited mag is still much more readable than a mag that hasn't been scanned at all. So that's where I choose to put my efforts. I can see the want for completion, but we're tens of thousands of scans away from ever getting there - it ain't gonna happen. So I'd rather scan something for the first time rather than make sure every magazine hosting site has an exclusive copy of the same magazine. Don't worry, I don't expect everyone to agree with me. Just stating my own philosophy on the matter.

    He's right to be scared too; Dave will come after whoever he can find, trust me on that one. Now, as to why he and Game Informer seem to throw fits over distributing old issues of magazines they themselves refuse to sell or make available, I don't know. Game Informer, I can live with out. It has always been, and will always be a magazine they gave away damn-near-free with purchases at FuncoLand. The first few years were alright, but like every other mag they just became a shill rag for Sony later on. Gamefan, on the other hand, was solid all the way through. Granted, we had to put up with Monkey Boy Rox and his blatant bashing of anything non-Sony, but the rest of the staff really seemed to give everyone else a solid shot. It was definitely the only place to find quality Sega coverage. Now, I have almost every issue of Gamefan, the actual mag, as I did EGM and GamePro, but I am tired of lugging around 80lb boxes of mags everywhere I move to, and it's nice to have my entire collection on a portable HDD or bits of it on tablets, phones, etc. Gamefan was the last holdout in terms of finding them digitially. I honestly don't care where Sketch "stole" them from, I am with Marktrade in that it's for the good of the community that they are now available.

    Well, listen man, I hate to do it to you..but it goes back to my whole "people have scans of Gamefan and are too scared to post them" thoughts from a while back. This guy wasn't scared to do it, and if he'd of contacted me, I'd of posted them for him. Hell, I am going to convert them to CBZ and add them to my Archive.org collection just to have a backup in case his stuff ever gets pulled. Now, for the other stuff, like Play or Gamers' Republic that you guys do scan and post, that he has managed to gank from this site, I can see and support what you're saying. A lot of them look like the "r"(I'm assuming it stands for "review") versions, which makes me wonder how he got a hold of all these in the first place. At any rate, I didn't mean to bring up a sore subject; I just saw and started downloading before running into issues where I could tell how/where he was acquiring them.

    A lot has been made of the internet's role in ending the gaming mag, but it definitely isn't the only factor - as you say, other mags continue to exist despite the internet. The real culprit is that American video game magazines were mostly devoid of any lasting valuable content. For example: My father has an interest in history, and used to subscribe to at least one magazine about the American Civil War. Obviously, there isn't going to be a lot of breaking news about such a topic, so it's true that the immediacy of the internet isn't going to be an advantage over a print mag. Nevertheless, there is plenty of information about the Civil War available online, all of it free. So why buy a magazine? The answer is that it is a collection of original, valuable content. Each issue was a collection of original researched articles, and so long as the information therein wasn't later contradicted or revised due to continuing archaeological or scholarly discovery, those articles remain sources of valuable information even today. Now look at your typical gaming mag. Chosen completely at random, I'll be examining EGM 102 from January 1998 (in other words, before magazine sales could have been adversely affected by the internet.) Out of 203 pages: 53% Advertisements - 109 pages of ads. Old ads can be of some interest to a retro site like this, but certainly no one bought the mag at the time it was published for the ads 12% previews - These have no lasting value, and honestly had very little value even at the time of publication. Most of the information is either heresay, based on unfinished builds, or else simply regurgitating whatever hype was printed on the press release. Even the screenshots printed were often those provided by the publisher and thus not even original to the mag they were printed in 12% feature articles - This is really what should be the main content of a successful mag 6% reviews - has some lasting value 5% strategy - could have lasting value if the strategy was in-depth or detailed maps were provided similar to a strategy guide. But in this case, "strategy" consists of tips and codes, all of which can much more easily be found online, making this the one section that is definitely made redundant by the internet. 3% news - had contemporary value, though the only value it holds now is to be amused by any news that turned out to be false 9% other (editorial, TOC, letters, next issue, etc.) So basically, with reviews and articles making up the only portions of the magazine worth keeping around long-term, there are 38 pages of valuable content to be found, which accounts for 19% of the magazine. The rest is essentially fluff.

    So after looking at "the new EGM" I kinda feel lied to. When I stated my specialty was in older games and the history of gaming, I was told that they really weren't looking for anyone or anything in that field. I go look at the revamped site today, and see a detailed analysis on "Sneak King" a game close to a decade old. I would have rather been told my writing needs more work or that there were other candidates in the area I specialized in they would prefer to work with than be told they aren't looking for someone in my field of expertise, than bring in someone working in my field of expertise at launch. Again, I am fine being passed by, as I am an amateur. But an honest reason would be a lot better than them doing the opposite mentioned to me. It left a bad taste in my mouth when I checked the site.
