Video Game Magazines
Everything posted by Swamp
Hey! I'm Swamp. Age 28 born and raised in Chicago. Ex-military (U.S. Air Force), living in New Zealand atm. I've been into collecting magazines since I was young. I remember writing down cheat codes from the Tips & Tricks magazines at Walgreens and grocery stores as my parents went shopping. I found this site after searching online for the Holidays issue of the ODCM (US). I found it here, as well as this awesome community. I'll do my best to win some Famitsu issues for donations.
To relive the good ol' days of gaming, when replay-values were high and the competition was fierce. Great journalism, fun ads, and cool Japan-reports!
I tend to gravitate toward Streets of Rage Remake; It's a fan-made Streets of Rage game (combines ALL 3 games in a choose-you-own-adventure style of game. Every track from the trilogy has been remixed. It has multiple endings and tons of secrets to unlock (and buy with your in-game currency). It's short, simple (yet complicated), has good music, and is fun to chill out to. That and The Typing of the Dead. I get to up my typing skills and get to enjoy the awesome voice acting (haha).
I used to go physical all the way years ago. Since then, I've found a love of traveling (light). Because of this, I prefer digital media these days. It's a good feeling bringing over my flash drive over to a friend's place w/ my Xbox Live profile + games intact. I'll still pick up physical games if it's a super-special edition. #SonicMania #Shenmue3 #BloodStained
I like in Hamilton, NZ and also have a few books to donate: A few King of Fighters '98 strategy guides (Japanese) and a few official sheet music books (also Japanese): Final Fantasy VII Chrono Trigger Legend of Zelda Collection Final Fantasy IV and a few sheet books from Rurouni Kenshin (anime). My only thing is that I would like them via .pdf files. You can keep the books afterwards.
