Hey guys. I know the site is going through some flux (?) with the downloads and all. But I thought I'd post an introduction.
I've been cleaning out some storage areas and looks like I've got most of my old video game magazines. The vast bulk of my collection is from 1987 - Present. Most of the issues would be from the 8-bit/16-bit era as the Internet lessened the need for magazines.. as well all know.
I haven't sat down to actually figure out an inventory yet but roughly this is what I have.
EGM - Probably close to a full run. If I have holes its in the early issues. I had a subscription for most of the 90s. Although I'll have to sit down and see if what's been lost in the shuffle.
EGM^2 - I should have them all but once again will have to look
Next Generation - Close to a complete run. I started reading around issue 3 or 4 and had a subscription shortly there after. I do know some issues aren't account for as I only have about 6 issues from the final year. I did find the final cancelation letter though, lol
Video Games & Computer Entertainment - A good run up until it turned into Video Games and was just awful.
Game Pro - The odd issue here and there, I never liked this magazine.
Nintendo Power - Mostly earlier years as this was basically a monthly nintendo advert. Fun at first but once other magazines hit it wasn't as relevant. I resubscribed in like '98 for one year? to get a soundtrack cd. I think these have all been scanned so it doesn't really matter probably.
PC Accellerator - Probably most of them. Great magazine. It was like an adult version of PC Gamer
I also have TONS of misc stuff.. Computer Gaming Magazines, UK Magazines, Amiga Magazines, Posters, Inserts.. Calendars.. you name it. I also have some of the newsletters and pack-in mail away mags like Sega Vision and Turbo Zone.
So while the database is being sorted I guess i'll just ask if theres anything missing thats really glaring? I can check and maybe I have it?
