It's been a while since I posted an update here and not just edited the first post.
But I've been scanning magazines like a maniac during my summer vacation.
Well after working on the house as always. But in the evenings I've been scanning about 3 hours each day.
Seeing as how I can scan 50 pages in 2 hours or so and everyone needs to be scanned twice, it's still takes a lot of time.

Being able to follow the New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax 27 tournament this year certainly made that boring chore much more pleasant. Wink

I'm up to the last issue of the Official Sega Magazine (nr.13), so after I complete this one, that whole set will be scanned and ready to be joined back together and edited, while I move on to other sets for scanning.

This week we return to the very first issue of Sega Pro from November of 1997, which we first released in 2011.
After a lot of editing and reworking, this issue has never looked better than the rendition you see before you today.
So let's have a look at what is inside: we start of with an all-time classic Sega RPG,
developed by Climax Entertainment on the Mega Drive: Shining in the Darkness.
From there we take a look at one of the cult classics created by the legendary Wolfteam: El Viento for the Mega Drive.
Moving on the the Sega Master System, we check out Shadow of the Beast,
and we finish this weeks update with Toejam and Earl on the Mega Drive.

Five years ago I had the fortune of getting in contact with Ralph Baer, affectionately known as the "Father of Video Games".  I conducted an interview with him, which is available below.  This interview was originally made available on another site but they have seen fit to remove the content I made available, including the interview below.

Mr. Baer was truly an inventing force.  The man, as you will read below, was decades ahead of his time and make money on pokerplayerlife com that of gaming in general.  We will miss you, Ralph.  Without you, gaming would surely be different, possibly unrecognizable to us today.  Retrogaming fans, below is the full interview.  Please enjoy and remember Mr. Baer and his family in this trying time.

That's a nice interview.
Thank you!

This week we turn back the clock exactly 20 years to the summer of 1997
with the brand new digital rendition of the Official Sega Saturn Magazine issue 22.
This issue is filled to the brim with excellent content,
so much so that we put nearly half the magazine online in the form of preview articles.
So let's get started!
First up we have an interview with Kats Sato of Sega Europe on Sonic R.
From here we move on to a whole bunch of features for Dragon Force,
Last Bronx, Resident Evil, Dungeons & Dragons Collection, Sonic R and WipEout 2097.
But that's not all!
We also have the following reviews stacked up for you: Darklight Conflict, Dragon Force,
Sky Target, Sonic Jam and last but certainly not least WipEout 2097.

Oh, I somehow missed that post!

Yeah, little info on it so far.
Getting regular email updates that everything is still proceeding along, but nothing really concrete.
No new screenshots or videos.
Then again, I've been waiting 15 years, so I can wait a bit more. Wink

No relevant intel so far. It's not like E3 where the public can see the progress for themselves. Still can't believe it's being made.

I was only just able to finish up OSSM issue 22 this evening, but that one still needs a final pass of checking if I missed anything, not to mention all the online articles and graphics put together.
So I wasn't able to finish it up in time for the weekend.
So I went with the remastered edition that I had ready for Sega Pro issue 9 instead.
The good news is that you'll have something really nice and brand new to look forward to for next week. Wink


This time we look back again to Sega Pro with the newly remastered edition of issue 9 from July 1992.
We have a ton of previews for this issue, so let's get started.
We begin with a special titled: Guide to Shoot 'Em Ups.
Then we take a look at The Winter CES of 1992.
We move on to reviews for Exile as well as Bart VS The Space Mutants, both of which are for the Mega Drive.
And then we look at two Game Gear reviews: Crystal Warriors and OutRun Europa
before finishing off this update with the Master System review for Prince of Persia.

This week we return to October of 1993 with issue number 12 of Super Play.
For this issue, we have selected the following preview articles to read as the full magazine downloads:
A rare interview with the people who worked for the Nintendo Hotline.
The review for the awesome car battle Rock 'N' Roll Racing by Blizzard Entertainment before they were known as Blizzard.
And finally, not one, but two great Konami classics! The home conversion of the arcade smash Sunset Riders
as well as the cult classic Zombies Ate My Neighbors which was developed by none other than LucasArts.

This week we go back in time 25 years to the summer of 1992
with the remastered version of issue 8 of Sega Pro.
This issue includes quite a few timeless classics, so let's get started:
first of we have a review for the Mega Drive classic Alisia Dragoon.
Then we move on to the review of one of the best games on the Game Gear: Monster World 2: The Dragon's Trap,
known in the west as Wonderboy 3: The Dragon's Trap,
which just recently got a beautiful remaster of it's own for the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Now we move on to a classic movie conversion: The Terminator
and we finish off this update with a somewhat forgotten shoot em up: Trouble Shooter.

After all these years it's finally happening! Cheesy

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ysnet/shenmue-3?ref=hero_thanks

Coming to PS4 and PC.

As a huge SEGA fan, backing this is a no brainer.
Even though I need every penny I have to finance my newly purchased house as well as money to pay for it's renovation, I just put $175 for Shenmue III because it really needs to exist!
When the Dreamcast died, a huge part of my passion for free slots without deposits hobby seemed to have died with it and even though I've loved several systems after it, it has never been the same, nor has it been as intense.

It's a strange feeling to once again get this hyped for a game to the point where I barely know what to do with myself!
Feels like being a kid again. Smiley

So, how is the campaign going?
Pls leave a bit of update here Tongue
