  1. Ultimate Gamer Issue 4 (November 1995)

    This mag hails from an interesting time when the PlayStation and Saturn were the new kids on the block vying for attention while Nintendo, Atari, and Panasonic were all trying to distract everyone using smoke and mirrors with their promises of their killer next-gen systems - the Ultra 64, the Jaguar II a.k.a. Midsummer, and the M2, only one of which actually went into production.  Learn from history, kids.  Don't believe the hype.

  2. Ultimate Gamer Issue 1 (July 1995)

    This particular copy was apparently given away at E3 (see the sticker on the cover).  It's an interesting mag.  The opening editorial claims the mag aims to appeal to adult gamers, and for the most part, I found it an interesting read that did indeed succeed in their stated goal of being better than the typical video game mag aimed at children.  The only problem I had with the mag was the review section, which for some reason eschewed written reviews in favor of what was essentially a bunch of screenshots and a score.  They must have gotten some negative feedback on this format, since later issues would add written commentary to the reviews.  Anyway, check it out!

  3. PSX-Pro Issue 08 (July 1996)

    This issue has the singularly hellish distinction of being comprised of almost nothing BUT two-page spreads.  Seriously, about the only pages that aren't spreads are a couple of the advertisements.  That said, I've kept the entire mag as single pages this time, since there isn't anything vital that will be disrupted by viewing the pages separately.  Nevertheless, you may want to switch to two-page viewing mode from time to time to get a better sense of how the mag was printed (on my reader of choice, CDisplay, you can switch between two-page and single page viewing by hitting CTRL-t and CTRL-s, respectively).

  4. Computer Gaming World Issue 087 (October 1991)

    This issue shipped with an ENORMOUS double-sided poster of Ultima VII.  I had to cut it into 8 pieces to be scanned, but it has been meticulously restored to perfection.  The poster images have been included at the end of the archive at the same resolution as the rest of the mag (2500px high), but for anyone interested, I have uploaded the full-size versions (12,648 x 19,530) of the front and back sides here:

  8. Play Online No.06 (November 1998)

    To coincide with the release of Ultima Online: the Second Age, this issue features a lengthy interview with Richard Garriot in additional to a feature covering the game itself.
    There is also a 21-page feature on flight sims.
    Always a pleasure, this month's "English Conversation For Network Games" article teaches Japanese players how to speak in the faux Shakespearean English used in Ultima games.  As someone who teaches English in Japan, it amuses me to think of Japanese players barely competent in English trying to greet foreign players using some of the phrases covered:
    "Hail, honored knight of Chaos!"
    "Well met, sir!"
    "Fortune guard thy steps, m'lord!"

  9. Play Online No.05 (October 1998)

    Again, it's interesting to me how hardcore this magazine is.  Admittedly it can seem a bit dry if you just want to look at pictures, but it's also refreshing that it isn't full of promotional fluff like most game mags - this mag focuses on information meant for hardcore PC game enthusiasts.  When you consider that many of the games being discussed aren't even available in Japanese (the coverage of the PC release of Final Fantasy VII laments the fact that it's only available in English), you've just gotta respect the beleaguered Japanese PC gamer who has no choice but to study the monthly column teaching English phrases to use when forced to play games against international opponents, since most Japanese gamers only ever fired up their PCs to play visual novels and porn games.

  14. Dengeki Super Famicom Vol.2 No.10 (June 17, 1994)

    The front and back cover of this mag were in pretty gruesome condition.  I've done what I could.
    Also, please note that while the mag itself is complete, I believe this issue shipped with a supplement covering part of Final Fantasy VI, which was not included with my copy.

  15. Dengeki PlayStation Issue 071 (April 10, 1998)

    Lotsa good stuff this issue.  The main features:
    Parasite Eve (25 pages and a poster!) Resident Evil 2 (18 pages) Tekken 3 (10 pages) Xenogears (8 pages) Bushido Blade 2 (6 pages) Final Fantasy V (6 pages) By the way, the fold-out poster I stitched together looks pretty great.  If anyone is interested in having a full-size copy (much bigger than the one included in this file), I uploaded it here: https://mega.nz/#!EBxjzCpS!Yv2RRJsutCUNNUuPDZxjs8-MBHFzbfOzmRO0JX6KfnE
    It's full 600dpi at 6026x9100px and could be printed out as an actual poster by a printing service if you were so inclined.

  17. Tech Gian Issue 017 March 1998

    ADULTS ONLY
    This issue will be of particular interest to at least one person around here, as it features a two-page preview of Divi Dead. 
    This issue also presented an unusual problem in that the last 40 pages or so look as if some kind of mold had eaten away a chunk of paper at the bottom of each page.  Without spending too much time trying to recreate the missing areas, I think I managed to make it fairly unnoticeable if you aren't looking carefully.  For anyone interested in knowing what I had to deal with, check out the last two pages (the inside-back cover and back cover), which I left with the missing areas as is.
    You can download the demo disc at archive.org here.  Be aware that it requires Win95 to run.

  18. Dengeki G's Magazine Issue 021 (April 1999)

    The G's stands for "girls" and that's just what you'll get.  No Mario or Solid Snake in these pages, just lots and lots of bishoujo games, pretty much none of which were ever released outside of Japan.  But that's what makes it interesting, hey?

  21. Tech Gian Issue 016 February 1998

    Covers adult bishoujo games/visual novels for the PC. Content is intended for adults only. Downloader discretion is advised.
    Pages 3 and 4 of the magazine were attributed to the demo disc which I've uploaded at archive.org here. (A photo of the disc is included at the end of this archive)
    Be advised that the demo disc was designed to run on a Win95 OS, so it may not work on a modern system.
    As always, because the manga at the back was printed from right to left and starts on the last page and progresses inwards, I have reversed the order of pages so that it can be read in the same order as the rest of the magazine.

  22. Game Players Nintendo Guide Vol.4 No.13 (Holiday 1991)

    This is a re-scan to replace the previous release of this issue.  The previous release of this issue was the first mag I ever scanned, and it was done using a crappy all-in-one printer/fax/scanner.  I was never happy with the results and finally decided I had to rescan it with my Scansnap to present it at the same high level of quality as the rest of my scans.  This release is a big improvement upon the previous one, and I encourage anyone who downloaded it previously to replace it with this version.
    Please be aware that this issue features several page joins, including a very wide 4-page-join, which some CBR readers do not display well, causing the image to appear to be low-res and blocky.  This is a fault of the CBR reader not displaying extra-wide images correctly, and not the fault of the image file, but regardless, the individual pages that make up each join are also included here and will display correctly on all CBR readers.
