  1. I remember getting this issue when it came out and being disappointed at how few reviews were in it compared to normal. Then again it's pretty silly of me to be reading GamePro for the reviews anyway.
  2. Count yourself lucky you never played the damn pachinko level. I don't think I fully attempted that one myself although I remember losing a ton of lives pushing that leaf down the poison river.
  3. IDK, I think the Galaxy games get way more respect than something like Sunshine. Never understood why that game has such a large hatedom (aside from the pachinko/leaf levels and the final level).
  4. Jeremy Parish (formerly of EGM) is doing something similar to this on his channel, going through every NES, SNES and Game Boy game in chronological order. It's amazing how you can find some sort of story from even an obscure GB baseball game that was only released in Japan.
  5. I think this is the first issue of this I had that had the picture puzzles. Probably still have it in my basement.
  6. Yep, this was the first issue of this I bought. I remember the different versions of PaRappa and the Onimusha Warlords guide quite vividly, but the reason I bought it was for the Paper Mario coverage. Thanks!
  7. Someone needs to post the early early strategy guides where nobody was allowed to use any official art and the cover for the Super Mario 64 guide was just a drawing of his eyes. And then there was that weird Ocarina of Time guide that was kinda a guide but also a novel? They did the same thing with a bunch of Pokemon games.
  8. Maybe we'll find the elusive second issue of NGamer somewhere in that pile! You could fill a whole library with this donation alone.
  9. This is just what I was looking for. Thanks!
  10. It's even worse if it has that motion blur effect that makes everything look like a soap opera or a country music video. Glad my TV wasn't one of those where that was the default setting.
  11. I found a British lottery ticket in an issue of Cube UK I bought once. Too bad I'm American so the only pounds I'm gaining are on my thighs
  12. We should try to make some kind of thing here that lists all the pack-in stuff various magazines had for each issue. Nintendo Power was probably second only to GamePro in just how much crap they managed to shove into that plastic casing. They had that subscriber bonus issue (which was just a catalog), those Pokemon comics, the pull out posters that ruin the magazine when you take them out since there's part of an article on the back, rare Pokemon Eon Ticket, a whole bunch of catalogs (there was this blue one from 2003 I'd like to see someone archive) and the like. Does something like this seem feasible to anyone here? This does seem like the kind of stuff that tends to fall through the cracks. Especially those goddamn posters.
