  1. I have an alternate cover for PSM #42. A videogame store near where I live had two of that issue. One had Rayman like the one pictured in the database, but there was a second one which had Dante from Devil May Cry and Samanosuke from Onimusha illustrated by Randy Green. I bought that one.

    This is a small paper which was in the box of an NES deluxe set I bought a few years ago. It explains the Nintendo Seal of Quality.

    This is a sealed instruction paper for a filter which could be used with the NES R.O.B. robot. The filter itself is also in the image. The shine on the paper and lines on the filter is because they are still in the plastic bag. This was in the box of an NES deluxe set I bought a few years ago.

    This is the front of the send away form for the Nintendo Fun Club newsletter, which was the predecessor to Nintendo Power. This was in the box of an NES deluxe set I bought a few years ago.

  7. I would buy it, except I have all but 4 of the games on their original cartridges. A Mini Super-Nes with Earthbound included would be different though...

  15. Hi. I'm Tim, a 39 year-old in North Carolina. I discovered Retromags some time back, but don't remember the circumstances. I've been building up my retro game/Nintendo Power/strategy guide collection somewhat lately, and that made me think to check back on the site. Right now, I'm scanning, editing and uploading around 20 covers to strategy guides I bought when I studied abroad in Japan a few years ago.
  16. Pages: 132 Price: 980 yen
  17. The size of this guide(as in dimensions, not page count) is actually small like that of a Japanese Strategy guide, which makes sense since this was originally published in Japan.
  18. My cover scan of Japanese video game magazine Family Computer issue 11 June 7, 1991, although it most likely means the 11th issue released that year. I don't know too much about this magazine, since its the only issue I have and I had never heard about it until getting this off Ebay years ago. It has 232 pages, including a 15-page manga titled Lagrange Point. It seems to focus on Famicom and Super Famicom.

  21. This is the scanned and edited cover of Famitsu issue 57.
  22. Hello. I'm a new user and have decided to try to scan and edit some covers of a few magazines and some Japanese Strategy Guides that aren't in the galleries. However, I see a gray box that says "You cannot upload a new file". Is it because I'm new? I've looked at the How To for releasing, but I either don't understand something or it could be out of date. Also, for a more general question, since I'm new to editing covers, I thought I would post a before and after image of the Famitsu cover I had just edited on the forum so I could possibly get some feedback as to whether I did a good enough job, but I can't insert images into a post. Is there any way for me to do that? It's likely something simple, but I haven't had much luck trying so far.
  23. If you've played Romance of the Three Kingdoms or the Dynasty Warriors series, then Destiny of an Emperor is a great RPG featuring the same characters. It gives a unique take on some standard RPG mechanics. HIt points are actually the number of men in that characters force and what would usually be considered magic is different strategies that can be used against an opponent.
