  1. So, i bought and scanned both issues of the Where's Waldo magazine from the early '90s. I know it's not retro video game related, but kind of a neat obscure little mag anyway. Here's some links for anyone interested.
  2. i think i paid $40 for mine, but i concur.
  3. and now I've spent way too much time watching that channel. thanks, all!
  4. i don't relate DIRECTLY to this, as i've never felt the need to play absolutely EVERYTHING, but do deal with something similar. if a game/series comes out that i'm interested in, i have to start at the beginning. take the Metroid series, for example. I won't play Super Metroid until I beat the original and the GameBoy sequel. for offshoots like the Metroid Prime series, i could skip to that series, but couldn't jump in with the upcoming Prime 4. I'd have to play through all three previous entries (i beat the original Prime back when it came out for the GameCube, but haven't played the others). This leads me to be VERY hesitant about starting new games/series, as it could quickly add 5 games to my "To Play" list before i could even start on a new one that interests me. This also relates to movies, comic books, and other ventures too. It's frustrating but also deeply rewarding when i am completely caught up.
  5. gave up on Sonic Mania on the Switch. I'm having WAY too much trouble with these boss fights. my brain just doesn't comprehend Sonic games correctly. now alternating Hollow Knight (Switch) and Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii). enjoying them both quite a bit. neither of the Mario Galaxy games really get much respect, but they're solid follow-ups to Mario 64.
  6. All solid points kitsunemi. While i'm not disagreeing, let me point out my perspective. Personally, i live within my nostalgia. I love flipping through old Nintendo Power mags, while still admitting that they were 100% written for kids. I feel like as long as you can accept something for what it is, not what you think it is/remember it being/etc., those things can still be appreciated. The games that NP pushed heavily tended to be some of the better games, so even looking past the cheesiness, it did separate the cream from the crop somewhat. As for Transformers, i LOVE '80s cartoons, despite the (many) flaws looking at them through 2019's eyes. TF and GI Joe are still in regular rotation in my household. As is Captain N: The Game Master, if that tells you anything!
  7. welcome to the site! what are your favorite Genesis games? I don't have a ton of Sega experience, but i always enjoyed Comix Zone, Sonic 2 & Knuckles, and Golden Axe
  8. holy shit! that would take insane levels of dedication to legitimately beat. I've never heard of that before and am horrified/amazed/intrigued.

  13. just purchased an almost complete set of this mag (missing issue #01) last week. one of my first thoughts was to get some scans up of the missing issues. uploaded to Mediafire for now, until someone higher up the food chain than me can add them to the site.
  14. well that is certainly an eclectic mix of reading materials. not sure what your end game is, but props to working towards it!
  15. someone on another forum documented all the Nintendo Power variant covers/posters/extras.
