And here's the update:


This time we return to NGamer with issue 5 that was released in January of 2007.
We start of our review selection with Gotlieb Pinball Classics by FarSight Studios
which would later on develop the high-end arcade simulator: The Pinball Arcade,
which digitally recreates a ton of classic pinball tables.
The review for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess comes at a time where we see Nintendo
reinventing the franchise once again with the gorgeous entry: Breath of the Wild.
Rayman Raving Rabbits sure was a fun diversion back then.
And Wii Sports showed us just how new play controls could really shake up classic sports games.
Besides all these Wii reviews, we also have a bunch of Nintendo DS games previewed as well:
Elite Beat Agents might not be as magical as the original Ouendan game, but it's still a ton of fun.
Gunpey Reverse is a peculiar puzzle game, and Yoshi's Island DS tried to take on the impossible challenge
of matching up to the original Super Nintendo masterpiece.
Finally we have a big feature that highlights a bunch of must have Virtual Console games: Download: Wii Recommend.

I'm still here and doing quite well actually.

I just have a bad case of burnout when it comes to working on video game magazines.
It tends to happen from time to time for a variety of reasons, but this time it got quite bad.
At this point I'm slowly starting to get my interest up again.

If I had a ton more free time, it probably wouldn't be this much of a problem either.
Although I do seem to run into a couple of problems.
Looks like my eyes are starting to give me a bit trouble as of late. Hitting 40 certainly has something to do with this I guess.
After looking at a computer screen for extended amounts of time, my eyes get really tired and even start to hurt and see double.
Having to concentrate really hard to pick up on all those small specs on pages makes this issue pop up even quicker.

Between all the work that has to be done around the house and garden, I picked up a Switch and Zelda alone certainly ate up a lot of time. Smiley Binding of Isaac as well actually.
I also picked up a couple books on Japanese and Korean cinema and directors, which made me pick up quite a few new (old) films.

I just noticed that I put up NGamer issue 5 on April 1st on Twitter but somehow forgot to finish up the index on the catalogue page and put up the news page or forum post for it! Doh!

Guess I got my work cut out for me this afternoon...

The best way to finish up a magazine collection seems to be going to ebay, doing a specific search and then click the button to follow that search. You'll get an email when new issues go up.
Sadly as the years go by, it tends to get harder to find certain issues as many sets get thrown out by people not realising or even caring that others might be interested in old magazine.

I'm afraid we won't be able to help with this one.
We don't consider magazines that are currently in print for preservation. Only ones that are actually out of print.

After tons of Sega love, we return with some well deserved Nintendo love as well
as we release the remaster of Super Play issue 11.
We begin our preview of this issue with a big interview with Nintendo of America Vice President: Peter Main.
This isn't the only interview though as we also have one with Factor 5's Julian Eggebrecht about Super Turrican.
After all of this goodness we look at The full story of the Nintendo CD.
And we end this update with reviews for Mortal Kombat as well as Super Mario All-Stars.

A nice little feature on USGamer.net where Jaz talks about how they used to take screenshots of games for use in magazines.
