  1. Browsing through this, I was very excited to see an ad for what looked like a really neat horror game (page 10). After struggling for about twenty minutes to decipher the handwritten kanji of the title (then feeling like an idiot after realizing it was deciphered for me down at the bottom left side of the page), I went looking for info only to discover that "Muragiri" was cancelled and never released. Why do you hurt me like this, @kitsunebi77? Why?
  2. Was "The Golf '92" more popular than "The Baseball '88" or "The Volleyball '95" or "The Bowling '02"?
  3. Oooooh! Protoculture Addicts! Haven't seen an issue of this (except for the ones I own) in decades. Very nice.
  4. According to my index, I have the March 1996 issue in my collection somewhere. I'll have to find it and add it to the database. *huggles* Areala
  5. I'm delighted to see this show up here! Thanks, Kitsunebi and Whiskcat! *huggles* Areala
  6. I'm a little over 3 months late, but happy 10th Retromags Anniversary to me! :angel:

  7. I absolutely love this. The first Zork is one of my most beloved adventure games of all time, and seeing the artist renditions of the different areas is really neat. Also fun for learning some kanji as well. Thanks, Kitsu-san! *huggles* Areala
  8. I've got to say, this might be the very worst cover art I've ever seen for an issue of Game Player's. That's just...oof...bad.
  9. Congrats on finishing a game of Wizardry! I've tried multiple different versions (including that Apple II version from waaaay back in the day on my school's computers), and they've all managed to soundly hand me my ass enough times that I gave up. I wasn't using save states, so maybe that was the problem...watching the disk churn and eat a beloved party member eventually hurt too much for me to continue. One of my go-to "I just want to play for an hour or so" PC games is "Dungeon Hack" for MS-DOS from 1993. I own the original game with the box, but for ease of use I bought the digital version off GOG, because that edition has the copy protection hacked out. Fumbling with the manuals was fun when I was a teen, but nowadays I just want to kill things, loot their bodies, and get to the next level. Anybody else ever play this one? *huggles* Areala
  10. I enjoy using them as a form of practice. It's always enjoyable to learn new vocabulary, then flip through a magazine and go, "Oh look, that's the kanji for 'girlfriend'!" But, yeah, I'm much better at enjoying the pictures than I am reading the articles. *huggles* Areala
  11. There...are an awful lot of boobies in this magazine... I am scandalized.
  12. COME TO ME, YOU BEAUTIFUL TECH GIAN ISSUE, YOU! I will love you forever and ever and EVER!
  13. I have the issue of Expert Gamer myself, and was comparing it to the digital version when writing the index, which is the only reason I noticed it. I'm quite happy to donate it for a re-scan if Philly doesn't still have the de-bound pages any longer. *huggles* Areala
  14. Expert Gamer 72 - Missing page 5/6 (Fred Durst in Marc Ecko ad, and the first half of Space Channel 5 ad). *huggles* Areala
