  1. Yeah the prices of sealed graded games is beyond insane lately. It used to be mostly NES games, but recently Super Mario 64 for N64 was sold for an insane price. I've never checked the prices for my games but now I'm curious. I only have some Wii, Wii U, DS, and a handful of PS2 games. I'm guessing my Dragon Quest IV DS is probably my most valuable. Also, you got to love it when a listing is showing said item is RARE! If there are 50 copies listed on Ebay I wouldn't consider said item is rare.
  2. I come to download a bunch of mags, check out some covers for magazines I've never heard of. I don't post on the forums too much. Lately I been splitting time between indexing various magazines I'm nostalgic for and updating various parts of the video game db. I've been going through various systems and adding developer, genre, release date and rating, but currently I've got a bunch of PS2 games that I'm scanning covers for and updated other info.
  3. That's my only nitpick that I see, the edit buttons are rather hard to view.
  4. Maybe I'm remembering it wrong, but I'm sure there was 1 magazine that did have Thrill Kill on the cover. But I don't remember which one. I know it wasn't GamePro or EGM. It was one of the lesser known magazine. I want to say Tips & Tricks?
  5. I've been indexing a buch of Diehard Gamefan/Gamefan mags lately and I found it shocking the # of games being featured that were never released. It seems to be at least one (and usually more) every issue.
  6. Being the April issue, of course there is an April Fool's joke in this issue. This time they said you could play as Akuma (from the Street Fighter series) in Resident Evil 2.
  7. I just finished indexing Diehard GameFan volume 2, issue 6 and I hard to share a bit from one of the letters printed. A reader claimed that 500 (yes, 500!) developers were working on games for the 3DO. GameFan corrects the writer and says there are about 30 developers working on 3DO games. I feel that even 30 may be a bit high for the 3DO. 500 seems to be a high number period! Were there anywhere near 500 development companies even around at that time?
  8. Some wild stuff in the Other News section of this magazine about Street Fighter III. The game would not even be released till 1997 almost 4 years after this magazine was on newsstands. The lineup was supposed to be Ryu, Sagat & 14 new characters (two of which would be Chun Li's younger sister and M. Bison's mentor name Shadow Lu) I wonder if this is something they actually got from Capcom, or they just completely made this up? Even Street Fighter Alpha wouldn't hit arcades for another 2 years.
  9. One glaring error in the Retroview section of the magazine. It said the New York Yankees defeated the Oakland A's in the World Series in 5 games. It was the Los Angeles Dodgers, not the Yankees. The Yankees and A's both play in the American League, so it would be impossible to play in the World Series together. As a baseball it was a very "Huh?" moment.
  10. Interesting note on Nintendo in this issue. Apparently Nintendo had filed a copyright lawsuit against NextGen's parent company Imagine Media. So in this issue there is NO Nintendo coverage at all. However in the next issue, Nintendo coverage is back.
  11. So according to this issue Halo was going to be released on the PS2?! Wikipedia states about PC and Mac versions but nothing about a PS2 release. It's so interesting to read through these old mags and find games that went through massive changes or were simply never released.
  12. Hey folks. I was looking to submit a cover for the Wii U game Xenoblade Chronicles X but I could not find the game in the video game database. Is it missing? Also Paper Mario: Color Splash and Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD seem to be missing as well?
  13. That's what I'm thinking too. I submit cover scans on occasion for a DVD/Blu-ray collectors group that I'm a part of and do separate front & rear scans.
  14. Apology's if this isn't the correct forum for the question, but I was thinking about submitting some scans for various video games I have for the video game database. They would be my own scans from my own games. Mostly Wii, Wii U, DS and a few PS2 games. If I do so, what would be the best way to do it? Since they would all be from a case, should I scan the entire cover (back, spine, front) or just do 2 separate scans from the front & back?
  15. Probably your best bet it go through mags at that time & have a quick look at "content" for the issues that have it posted there and see if any of them have CD-i info. As MigJmz said, it wasn't a very popular system. I went though many of the mags from that time (mostly GamePro and EGM) and there was little CD-i coverage then.

    Can't download

    I was having the same issue using Chrome. But Microsoft Edge works fine downloading files.
  17. Just wanted to and another interesting thing about the M2. According to Ultra Game Players #99 (July 1997), there were around 80 games in development for the M2! Which of course was not released. I wonder how much money was wasted developing those games? I wonder how many M2 consoles actually exist? I've certainly seen pictures, but I wonder how many machines are out there?
  18. Because Retromags does not want anything from earlier then 10 years ago to be on the site. Those issues are from 2010, so less then 10 years. Although I guess the ones from January to June could be done now if someone had them to scan.
  19. Couldn't agree more. I grew up reading GamePro, Nintendo Power, EGM, EGM2 and those have been the majority that I've downloaded from here. I wasn't into gaming as much by the time PS2/Xbox/Gamecube arrived. I also gotta say I HATE the way GamePro changed their layout in the later years. Yuck!
  20. I use: ePSXe for PS1 Gens for Genesis/Mega Drive Jnes for NES (nowadays I'm using the NES Classic) kigb for Game Boy PCXS2 for PS2 Snes9X for Super NES (like Jnes, I'm using a Super NES Classic nowadays)
  21. I bought a Wii U a few years ago. Shortly after the Switch was released. I thought with the Switch being released, surely the prices on Wii U would drop right? Nope. I ended up buying a refurbished model directly from Nintendo. Very happy with it as I had a number of Wii games I can still play.
