  1. Big retro fan here. Getting the switch though. First ever game was probably pong at my grandfather. First game I owned was the Nintende Game&Watch game Lion. Then the atari, commodore plus4, commodore 64 etc, etc etc. Bit off topic: my grandfather was quite the tech nerd in his day, repairing tv's and what have you not. He actually had a huge stack of computer magazines from the early 80's. Unfortunatley when he passed they were all dumped in the trash (I was not around to save them). I remember atari age, computer games and videogames.
  2. The most recent systems I have bought are actually not the newest Kids on the block you might say. I went on a bit of a retro console obsession last year. Ended up buying a NES with RGB mod. Simply stunning razor sharp graphics on an Original console. After that I also bought en RGB modded SNES mini/jr. As far as I am concerned the Original hardware with mods is simply the best way to play the games. Finally, I also bought the nes classic mini. Regular pre order since i detest al the flipping and scalping.
  3. The CD rom today multi media tool chest (may 1996) and the Video and computer games and computer entertainment issue 22 are still available. So if anyone would like to have them just let me know.
  4. Thanks for the compliment and the status change! Just trying to make a little contribution to something so close to my heart. Also, the way that Kiwi has handled the scanning and editing is top notch and I wouldn't hesitate shipping more magazines to him for preservation. I do have a few boxes in the basement that still need to be weeded out, so who knows what I will find there (no idea really).
  5. Hi everyone. In addition tot the other magazines I mentioned I also found some other magazines: Nintendo Magazine System (UK): - issue may#8 - issue oct#25 - issue sept#36 - issue jan#40 - issue mar#42 - issue apr#43 - issue july#46 - issue june#45 - issue sept#48 Computer and videogames (UK) - issue no 154 (Sept 1994, DKC Cover) Other then some dutch magazines for now that is it. I have some boxes elsewhere that might have a few more, but won't be cleaning those out for now. Kiwi. Let me know if there is anything you are interested in from this lot. I will then go see what the shipping would cost.
  6. I see that there have been no reactions thus far. any advice from anyone what I can do? Right now I have no time or knowledge about scanning.. I would love to donate to some one but no one seems interested. I would not mind shipping to the USA if prices are not too high either by the way.
  7. Hi guys, I have a few old magazines I found cleaning up. I don't want to keep them but would like to donate them to the community. I am willing to pay for postage as long as it is not expensive. I was advised to post them and see who would be willing to do the work for preservation. These are the mags that I have found that are all listed as missing on this site or are just out of the preservation range. I live in the Netherlands so anywhere in Europe would be preferable. EDGE ISSUE 118. Christmas 2002. (NOT ALLOWED) EDGE issue 35. October 1996. MISSING CD rom today multi media tool chest may 1996. MISSING Ultimate future games issue 1. MISSING. Ultimate future games issue 12. MISSING. Ultimate future games issue 14. MISSING. video games and computer entertainment. Issue 22. November 1990. MISSING. Ultimate gamer issue 2 september 1995. MISSING.
  8. Thanks for the reply. I am still cleaning out some boxes where I might find some more. I will make a thread once I have double checked everything. Not much as far as terms of donation. Just that the costs to ship them are not too excessive.
  9. I have a few magazines that are still earmarked as missing that I would like to donate. Where can I send them to??

    Magazines to donate

    I have been cleaning my basement amd have a few diffrent magazines that are listed as missing. How can Imdonate these?? I live in the Netherlands so close to home would be nice.
  11. After keeping NES and SNES boxes and manuals for years I left to college only to have a spring cleaning undo all that. And now years later seeing the value they could have been.
  12. I like the list. Probably too many 3rd party games. But who knows?
  13. RGB Modding consoles

  14. Can't have just 1. Atari 2600 was very important. But without the PC's that were still selling games after the crash who knows in Nintendo would have risked releasing the NES. Unfortunately the consoles spelled doom for the arcades...
  15. indeed. Amazing work. my favorite is Gaiden 1.
  16. I owned the commodore 64 version. Never played this "newer" version. Looked sweet though.
  17. I've been all over the place as far as gaming is concerned. Have owned both consoles and various types of computers. PC's, commodore 64 and plus 4, 386-pentiums etc and nowadays mostly Apple. They all have their charm. Consoles to me are just less of a hassle too. If you want to play them on the old school rigs it would be a pain. And the media used to store the software, esp. the old stuff is more fragile. Can't tell how many 5 1/4 floppies just died on me or just being near a magnet. Of course you can now emulate practically everything u can play the old stuff, jus (to me), without it's charm.
  18. Oops... I meant 240p signals.......
  19. All great recommendations. I guess it also depends on the type of info you're looking for. I'm currently expanding my gaming collection and am mostly looking for reviews of games. I find EGM and Gameproto be a great source for that.
  20. I own most of the 100 first issues. In generally good condition. I also remember catching some flack during the high school years as me and a bunch of geek friends used to discuss particulars of games in the mag. The cooler kids would definitely dissaprove. But we didn't care. So even Mickey dressed as a fireman went to school with me. Haha.
  21. Best signal possible without a mod on the N64 would be s-vhs I think. I own a framemeister. If you want to use an LCD screen it will offer the best experience for 280p signals. But at a steep price. Other signals differ as far as best picture solutions. Check http://retrogaming.hazard-city.de for in depth info.
  22. I am currently rediscovering my old consoles after years of having them stashed away and currently started working on some backlog 20+ years in the making. Just got a frammeister and bought a 20inch Sony PVM CRT monitor. The emulation scene has felt a bit empty since then. Even the hassle of hooking a system up seems like a joy! Don't know how long the (second) honeymoon will last. So these last few months I have been playing a few hours during weekends. Currently playing Earthbound (barely touched the game/big box in the past) and doing some 2p stuff with my younger brother like Zombies ate my neighbours, Legend of the Mystical Ninja and Pocky and Rocky. Just great!
  23. I think I will give spreadsheets a go. If it becomes too tedious I might consider other options. @DPsx7: I found a wegsite called backloggery.com. It's quite cool really. You can add any title and get medals for completing games.
  24. Mine are going to my grandfather who was quite the electronics geek and playing pong on his older black and white CRT tv back in the beginning of the 80's. My parents had a hard time prying me away from that screen. I also remember he had stacks of old magazines, many of them listed but still missing on this website. I recognize many covers. Seeing the pics of the games in the magazines blew me away!
  25. Hi there everyone. I have just started cleaning up my old consoles, games, magazines etc. I was looking for a proper cataloging solution for all the hardware. I've looked around and found several online databases that cater to videocollectors like collectorz.com, vgcollectors.com. I would rather have a solution that can be held on your computer. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm a mac user and found delicious library 3 lacking as I can't catalog things like manuals, boxes etc. as far as I know. Thanks!
