  1. Any good techniques/hardware for scanning?

    Thanks guys, I am going to buy the same scanner/chopper and contribute soon. I just saw a video on YouTube showing how the process works, so I am ready to get started: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFQQ1a_KY-Y
  2. 2017 Retromags Collection Available Via Torrents!

    There are no real words to express the gratitude I have for the work that you and the others have put into this site. I remember when Retromags was on life support and it looked this important preservation project would be over. Now it has become bigger than I thought it would be and there is still so much left to do. So thank you for that, I have not got around to saying that before.
  3. I remember the prototype N64 Final Fantasy VII being shown in EGM and then I felt really cheated when they ended up cancelling it and releasing a different game on PlayStation the next year. I was not able to play the game until much later, but I thought it was pretty great. Although I still liked FFVI more because every character seemed to matter and the focus was not generally around a single person.
  4. Super Nintendo Classic Edition

    I am surprised how popular these things are and the price gouging involved. You can buy a Raspberry Pi 3 for $36 and install RetroPie to get the exact same effect.
  5. Inquest Gamer scans?

    I would be interested in seeing Inquest and The Duelist magazines archived on this site. While they were primarily involving trading card games and only sparingly covering PC and console games, they were just as dear to me as EGM or GamePro.
  6. Xbox One Announcement

    I was a big supporter of the original Xbox and the Xbox 360, so it is very disappointing to see these anti-consumer practices with Microsoft telling us to "Deal with it". I hope that the Playstation 4 will fill the void and go the opposite route of just about everything Microsoft is proposing. This upcoming generation I may only purchase a PS4 just in principle. While Nintendo is not doing any of this garbage, which is commendable, the Wii U does not interest me. I think I am finally tired of playing the same first party titles with the same premise.
  7. UnderGround Gamer Torrent Site Is Down

    Underground Gamer being shut down was a huge loss. There were a number of magazines UG had that Retromags did not and with the database restructuring going on, UG was the go to site. Once everything is squared away here I expect a huge influx in traffic. I can't think of any other source with this amount of content.
  8. Sega Challenge Issue 1 is a tough one!

    Wow I never thought a video game magazine could get up that high.
  9. 1up Sold...egm Officially Closing.

    I also had many fond memories of receiving my magazines in the mail. I did not have another way to get news, cheat codes or walkthroughs before the Internet and always looked forward to the reviews. I remember the SNES Street Fighter II days and the Mortal Kombat II Arcade days. I used to buy every magazine hoping for nuggets of information. Well print media based around news information is dead, but on the bright side we may be able to upload more current issues for this site as the publishers become defunct.
  10. Whats Stopping You?

    A few years ago I had a website where I was attempting to do the same project as Retromags.com is, but work got in the way and I had to abandon the site. I will probably start it up again sometime in the future and maybe there can be some kind of collaboration. I litterally have shelves of hundreds of gaming magazines, though some of the more rare items such as that EGM #1 you placed on your page I do not have, so that was a real treat. I am curious though, have you ever been contacted by the publishers of EGM or GamePro about placing their content up online?
