Well, I said I was in for a challenge when I stated my intent to try and resurrect issue 2 of Club Nintendo which is in rather terrible shape.

Over 6 hours later we seem to have our first page finished up. Smiley


Started off with the worst page of the bunch as I would have kicked myself if I ended up doing all other pages and this one was impossible to restore.
So I'll have it at least a bit easier with the rest. Well besides the cover page, which I'm sure will give me quite a few headaches just looking at it.

Then again, the end result will be worth it. Wink

My first thought when I read how there weren't any to be found on ebay was "that surely can't be right", but this does seem to be the case.

Really curious why this could be a thing actually.
I very well know there are some magazines that rarely show up on there, but like you said, for such a popular magazine not to have a single issue available sure is weird.

These things do seem to come and go in waves though, so I'm sure some will pop up sooner or later.
I don't sell any magazines myself so I'm afraid I can't help you there. I can only try to help with digital versions. Wink

Hey guys,
I'm looking for all Dreamcast Magazine (not to be confused with the official one! this is what I need just in case: http://segaretro.org/Dreamcast_Magazine_(UK) ) issues by Paragon Publishing for my collection. As well as all sister magazines like Dreamcast Solutions spin-off series (there are 9 issues of them according to SegaMags website).

Here's the actual version of my want list:


It's kinda weird they don't appear on eBay since it was one of the best-selling DC magazines...

Looking for the best condition, mint if possible (I think it's very realistic because again, it was very popular).

If anyone has some of them to offer, we will surely make a deal Wink

My P.O. Box is in Finland. I can pay with PayPal / Skrill
If you have eBay listings or ANY other information of where to get these mags please PM me.

My eBay profile if you wanna see my feedback score:

I'm so happy!

Today I finally got my hands on the final remaining Club Nintendo magazines that I've been searching for for many years now.
The very first one was quite expensive (€54), especially for a magazine of only 20 pages.
But this is a set that I've been wanting to digitise and preserve for over 10 years now. Cheesy

I even got two of the other issues for free once the seller learned what I was planning to do with them!
Now, these are in quite bad condition, but I've done a couple of equally challenging restorations, so I'm cautiously optimistic that I'll be able to get them all back to their former glory.

Gonna start scanning these next weekend. Smiley

We're delivering a huge amount of nostalgia in a tiny package this week,
especially when the magazine weighs in at a slim 20 pages.
This is the final issue of Club Nintendo for 1989.
The other volumes normally go up to 6 issues per a year.
We were only just able to get 4 full previews out of these 20 pages,
all of them are reviews/features for some timeless Nintendo Entertainment System classics.
The first one is Life Force / Salamander from Konami. Next up is Mega Man by Capcom.
The next one is Robowarrior / Bomber King by Hudson Soft and Aicom.
And finally we have a classic by Rareware: Wizards & Warriors.
If you enjoy this issue, we should be able to have some great news next week that you might like. Wink

Club Nintendo Volume 1 Issue 5 - 1989 (UK)

Wizards & Warriors

This time we look back at one of the classics from 1991:
 Mean Machines issue 11 from August.
We found a lot of great stuff so it was hard to pick only four preview articles,
so we ended up with eight instead.
We start of by looking at an often forgotten Mega Drive classic: Alien Storm,
then move on to the fantastic Ice Hockey that started a whole series.
Moving on to the Sega Master System, we look at Psycho Fox as well as Spider-Man vs the Kingpin.
On the NES side we have Kabuki Quantum Fighter and Boulder Dash.
And to finish things off we look at Snow Bros. Jrs for the GameBoy as well as the Summer CES of 1991.

Oh, I just picked up something super special for me personally.

Been looking for this magazine for many years now, close to a decade in fact and finally one popped up that was still very expensive, but not prohibitively so.
Gonna have to keep it a bit vague till I actually hold it in my hands.
It might be something small for most people, but I'm really excited about it. Cheesy
Actually picked up 3 issues this past week. Wink

Thanks. Smiley

After finishing up scanning the complete Official Sega Magazine set I started back on Mean Machines, for which I'm currently scanning issue 20. So after scanning the remaining issues of that set, I'll move on to Mean Machines Sega, Super Play, NGamer and Dreamcast Magazine to get a bit of variety going.

Editing will be going a bit slower going forward as my summer vacation is coming to an end and I'll have to return to work again on Monday. So time will be very limited once again.
Wanted to actually do a bit more this week but there was just so much work that needed to be done around the house and garden that I ended up working around 6-8 hours a day on full blast.
So much so that I seem to have overdone it a bit and pushed myself too hard, for which I'm feeling the effects today. :-/
I'm hoping that a day of resting and staying off my feet for the most part will do the trick and get me feeling a bit better again.
Wish I had a couple more weeks of vacation to actually stop working and enjoy some quiet time. Wink

And now for the actual update I promised. Wink

This week we turn back the clock just a little over 10 years and look at issue 6 of NGamer magazine.
As always, we have selected a couple of preview articles to look through
as the full magazine downloads to your sytem.
We start of with Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin for the Nintendo DS.
Then we look at a somewhat overly harsh review for Excite Truck,
followed by Trauma Center: Second Opinion and Warioware: Smooth Moves,
all of these games are for the Wii.
We also selected two small import reviews for the Nintendo DS.
The first one is Jump Ultimate Superstars,
while the second one is the little known Tokyo Friend Pack II.
