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.

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

Today we return to the Official Sega Magazine with issue 18,
where we get some more glimpses at the upcoming Sega Saturn games
as well as a couple of top Mega Drive gems.
Our preview for this issue starts of with a feature on Alien Soldier for the Mega Drive,
followed by the review for it as well.
Then we take a look at two brilliant SNK fighting classics
that made their way over to the Mega CD: Samurai Shodown and Fatal Fury Special.
Before we move on to the Saturn games, we take a closer look at the review of Knuckles' Chaotix for the 32X.
Now we turn our attention to Astal and Cyber Speedway, both on the Sega Saturn,
before finishing up with a showcase on the arcade version of Virtua Fighter 2.

This beautiful out of print book is getting a reprint thanks to the recently launched Kickstarter campaign.


The book

Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works is the ultimate retrospective of Sega's famed 16-bit console, featuring development and concept illustrations for the platform's best-loved game franchises, original developer interviews and previously unseen hardware production plans. Much of the visual material – drawn from the Sega of Japan archives – has never been released before.

The book, an elaborately produced and meticulously designed publication, was released in 2014 to huge critical acclaim and is now sadly out of stock. We regularly receive requests to reprint the title, so we are looking to fund a second production run to ensure the title remains in print.


Alongside an exhaustive visual tour of Sega's Mega Drive/Genesis archives is ‘Arcade Perfect’, a written history of the console and its legacy by Guardian Games Editor Keith Stuart, which features the voices of Sega executives and industry luminaries – including the company’s founder David Rosen, its president Hayao Nakayama, Sega of America CEO Tom Kalinske and many more. The book opens with a foreword by legendary developer David Perry, on the console that catalysed his career.

Concluding the book are 28 specially-conducted interviews with original Sega developers and team members, including Naoto Ohshima (Sonic The Hedgehog), Yu Suzuki (Space Harrier), Greg Johnson & Mark Voorsanger (ToeJam & Earl), Makoto Uchida (Golden Axe) and Yuji Naka (Sonic The Hedgehog).

Tons of artwork from Mega Drive games, the original design sheets for the Japanese system. Pictures of prototype hardware and peripherals. As well as a bunch of exclusive interviews.

For a video that gives a nice look into the book, check this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7APfUiSwOo&feature=youtu.be

I've already pledges to get my copy! Smiley

Thanks. Smiley
I wasn't able to get the update ready for the Official Sega Magazine issue 18 this weekend, so it should be ready by the end of this week instead. It's a really good one as well! Smiley

I'm actually really hyped for the new Nintendo system.
It's looking like it'll be a much more powerful Vita, but with full Nintendo first party support.
I loved my Vita to bits, still do actually. So many niche games that it got as well as a ton of indie games.

The new Zelda at launch got me really hyped, and Splatoon 2 as well Xenoblade 2 is enough to get me to buy it day one.
Then there's Puyo Puyo Tetris by Sega which is fantastic. (Already imported the PS4 and Vita versions) and finally a real Sonic game again. Smiley
Looks like it will be getting a ton of indie games from the very start as well.

Little preview of the announced games so far.
