  1. Is this really the first time this has been scanned? I think I must have seen this cover so often in in-house ads of other Game Player's mags that I convinced myself that I already had a copy, but it appears that I don't. I'm positive I saw this on newsstands at the same time as Game Player's Strategy Guide to Nintendo Games Vol.1 No.2, which there are two covers for - one with and one without the triangular contest blurb seen on this cover. I'm pretty sure both of these issues (and possibly others) received multiple printings, making pinpointing their exact release dates difficult. One of the covers of issue 2 (which Retromags lists with an "August 1988" date, the same as this Buyer's Guide) features the same contest blurb as this one but displays a "sell until May 16, 1989" note, suggesting that this Buyer's Guide issue was likely published sometime in 1989 as opposed to "August 1988" as listed here. At any rate, it's almost 100% definite that the dates listed at Retromags are incorrect, unless there was indeed a one year gap between issue 3 (September 1988) and 4 (Aug-Sep 1989).

  10. Weird how the cover claims Doom3 is an "Xbox Exclusive". It was a PC exclusive actually, until it got ported by a different developer to the Xbox a year later. This mag came out before even the PC version was released, so you'd think they'd be covering that one, not a port that was a looong way from being finished.
  11. http://web.archive.org/web/20060820133050/www.interchannel.co.jp/game/muragiri/ That one, huh? Well, now you've got a 4 page preview of an unreleased game. That's more valuable than getting a scan of yet another preview for some super common game like a Final Fantasy or whatever. Sounds like it had a rough time. During development, the producer retired from the business and the character designer died. It sounds like an adult version was in the works for PCs as well (pretty common practice for this type of game). I wonder if it ever got previewed in an adult mag?
