  1. SuperGrafx is a good representation of why mid-generation "upgraded" consoles were seen for a long time as a bad idea. It's only very recently that the concept has been viable as seen with the PS4 Pro and XBox One X. All previous attempts either failed outright like the SuperGrafx, or were aborted outright like the 3DO M2.
  2. Well the Xbox's continued failures in Japan are largely due to xenophobia. Well that and Japan's near-total distaste for first person shooters and Western-styled graphics.
  3. It's a nice list. But having a 3-button controller instead of the 6-button limits what games are possible, paticularly fighting games. Would like to see NHL '94 and maybe a couple Phantasy Star games on the list.
  4. Hey at least the SuperGrafx was backwards compatible. The follow-up PC-FX tanked massively and ultimately drove NEC/Hudson out of the console market for good.
  5. Playing games or watching movies vs. having memorable experiences doing it is a common thing. I've personally owned over 50 sports games and played many, many more. But the number of sports games I remember well is probably less than 10. But that probably speaks more to the genre itself than my overall enjoyment playing them at the time.
  6. Several months ago I went through the NA Release lists for the Dreamcast, N64, & PS1 trying to remember which games I previously owned back in the day. I could remember most of them, but there were a few I genuine wasn't sure if I had or hadn't, particularly in the sports category. A few I thought I owned but couldn't remember playing them, which was a bit odd.
  7. My interest is based on whatever retro gaming I'm doing at a particular time. Like E-Day I go through downturns and when I'm not playing anything retro I rarely visit. But when I AM doing my retro thing regularly I come by a couple times a week for news, new releases, and to check the shoutbox.
  8. Hey Sean I'm still trying to find time to send you my copy of EGM 100 if you still want it. I can understand if you thought I blew you off (I didn't), but I've just been so bloody swamped with work it's difficult to get to my PO before it closes. Bummer on the cost of the poster. Wish I still had one to give you.
  9. I'm back! Sorry for taking so long to respond but with long work hours, family time, tons of sleep and bad allergies my online time has been almost nil. Sean697: I will send out #100 to you, but I don't know exactly when since I'm pretty swamped right now. It might be a couple of weeks at least. We can work out the details sometime next week. Phillyman: OK, but you're going to have to be more specific about exactly what you want. Are you saying you want me to be your backup guy in case you screw up the prep work for the scanning & editing process? Puddinpops: I don't have time right now sorry. However I will keep it in the back of my mind and if I have a couple free hours I will definitely take a look since it's a curious case. BTW interesting conversation on the different scanning styles you all have.
  10. I'm holding #100 right now as I type this. The condition is very good and it still has the Sushi-X Files No.08 insert in it (in flawless shape too!). The cover has a couple slight dents in it, but nothing that should prevent a good scan. However the poster, which I do remember it having, is indeed missing. I do admit over the years that I removed many of the inserts, posters, bingo cards, etc. from the EGMs over the years, since I often considered them superfluous when I was younger. For now let's wait and you can see if you can get a better copy of #100 w/poster. Don't worry though, the EGMs aren't going anywhere for now and I no intention of throwing them out.

  11. I currently have almost all the issues of Electronic Gaming Monthly from Issue #100 (November 1997) to Issue #198 (December 2005). The only 2 issues I am missing are Issue #120 (July 1999) and Issue #124 (Nov. 1999). All are in Good to Excellent condition due to them sitting on my shelves unused for several years. I noticed several of these EGMs are currently on the Most Wanted List and wanted to know if that was indeed still the case. Also checking if you wanted any other issues for future scanning. I also have a near-mint copy of the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Player's Guide that I would be willing to part with since my GC is now departed. Shipping is not an issue except for cost, since I'm currently a bit broke. But I can figure something out. Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Player's Guide
