This week we look back at Dreamcast Magazine issue 6 with this remastered version of the magazine.
As always, every page has been re-examined and corrections have been made
to the areas that might have been missed in the original release.
The colour values have also been adjusted so that the digital version gives a much better
representation of the original physical edition, and thus the magazine looks much more natural in the process.
This day marks our 7 year anniversary, so it's only fitting that a Dreamcast magazine
would be the choice for this celebration.

This week we present the re-release of Maximum The Video Game Magazine issue 3
which has been newly remastered so that it looks even better than before.
As previews for this issue we have selected the following articles: The Shoshinkai Show of 1995 (Spaceworld)
that focusses on the upcoming Nintendo 64 and it's launch games.
Next up is an interview with AM#3 on Sega Rally 1995. Then we look at a nice big feature for Virtua Cop on the Sega Saturn.
And we conclude this update with another big feature for Samurai Shodown 3 on the Neo Geo.

It took a little more time to get the following release ready due to the rather complicated design of the magazine.
But the results are more than worth it. So without further ado, we present you with issue 179 of CVG.
We start this issue of with two PC reviews, the first one for Quake, and the sedond one is for Syndicate.
We also have a special NiGHTS into Dreams for the Sega Saturn which goes over the optimal way to play the game.
And finally we have a preview for Tobal No.1 on the PSone
as well as reviews for Bizarre's Creation Formula 1 as well as Bubble Bobble also featuring Rainbow Islands,
both of which are for the PSone.

This week we are proud to present you with the re-release of the second issue of the Official Sega Magazine.
The precursor to the Official Sega Saturn Magazine.
In the not so distant future we'll be taking a jump in this magazine's past
and look at the very first coverage of the Sega Saturn, starting with issue 17.
But for now, let's look back at the height of the Mega Drive's populatity with this particular issue.
We begin with a look at the feature for Castlevania Bloodlines, followed by one for Sonic 3.
Then we have a look at the Sega Multi-Mega/CDX.
And finally we look at reviews for both WWF Rage in the Cage and Castlevania Bloodlines.

We are back with a newly remastered version of issue number 18 of the Official Sega Saturn Magazine.
As always, this issue has been re-edited to look even better than before,
including new colour settings which put it much closer to the original physical magazine
compared to the previous release. We start off with a look at Elevator Action Returns on the Saturn,
which sadly never left Japan. From here we move on to a feature on Manx TT,
as well as a big feature on Mass Destruction. Our final feature is for the somewhat obscure
 arcade fighting game by Capcom: Red Earth. But that is not all! We also have a look at not one,
 but two interviews in this issue. The first one is with Lobotomy Software about Duke Nukem 3D
and the second one talks with Tetsuya Mizuguchi about Sega Touring Car Challenge.

For the second week in a row we focus on a re-release of a back issue of Official Sega Saturn Magazine.
As always, this is the definite version of this magazine.
The colours should be spot on with this release as well as the attention to detail
when it comes to cleaning up marks of old age has been raised even more compared to the old version.
Our first preview is for a fan favourite racing game that sadly never left the arcades: Scud Race.
We then take another in-depth look at Fighters Megamix
as well as the newly converted arcade racer Manx TT Superbike.
And for the final preview of this issue we look at Hexen by Probe Entertainment.

Just a little teaser of what's coming up next weekend.

The Official Sega Saturn Magazine is one of the favourite magazines of many people, but one thing it missed out on was the actual Saturn launch period by about 6 months.

So I decided to go back to the early coverage and the month it launched in Europe to see all the great (and not so great) launch titles as well as get a feel of the excitement for one of my favourite home system of all time.

So next week, you can expect to be reading the following issue. Wink

Thank you for letting me know about the missing magazine.
I've just re-upped all 3 versions so you should be able to grab the ones you like. Smiley

It was really fun working on this upcoming magazine.
Glad to see so many familiar faces in there as well, even Ed Lomas and Tom Guise who would end up making CVG with Paul Davies such a brilliant magazine in the years to come.
I've already stared working on issue 18 as well and it's going quite nice.
I'm finding it a little difficult to find time to do much work on magazines as of late with all the work needing to be done in and around the house to get it all ready for winter, so the releases are going to be a little slow for a bit.

Then again, I'm confident it'll be worth it in the end. Smiley

This time we jump back in time a little.
The Official Sega Saturn Magazine is an all-time favourite of many people,
yet it missed the actual Sega Saturn launch by 6 months.
The reason being that at the time the system launched,
the magazine was still called the Official Sega Magazine instead.
So we wanted to jump to the Sega Saturn launch and since going through 15 more issues of OSM
would take a long time, we jump around a bit.
As always we select a couple of features to preview the magazine before you download the full release.
We start off with two of the finest racing games ever created: Sega Rally for the arcade
and Daytona USA on the Sega Saturn.
We also take a look at Theme Park on the Mega Drive
and the little known racer for the 32X: BC Racers.

I have actually been taking it kind of easy for the last couple of weeks. Wink

Right now I'm sick at home for the second week with a stomach bug, so I haven't been able to do much of anything.
But I've been scanning a couple of magazines here and there and slowly putting them back together.
So when I'm better, I look forward to getting OSM18 completed as well as finishing the remastered edition of OSSM2 and Dreamcast Magazine 2.

No problem. Smiley

I'm still not 100% but I'm certainly better than before.
Sadly, my vacation time is over as well so I'm back at work and thus have very little time to work on magazines.

I scanned quite a few issues during my break, OSM 17-22 are now fully scanned for instance, as is Mean Machines Sega up to issue 9 and NGamer up to issue 11.
Already started working on OSSM 21 and Super Play 13, and finished up the remaster of OSSM2 as well as 13. About 1/3 through the remaster of Sega Pro 1.
Official Sega Magazine 18 is coming along nicely and needs only 20 pages edited to be complete.

So the next couple of weeks should be interesting for releases I think.
Naturally the brand new ones will be a bit slow, but I've now got a couple of remasters lined up to put up back to back. Smiley

We start of the new year with the remastered edition of the Official Sega Saturn Magazine 2.
As always, this new edition has been cleaned up considerably and has quite a few improvements over the old version which was released in 2011.
The colour correction makes it look much closer to the original magazine for instance.
And everything from the text to possible spots and speck of dust that might have been visible
in the old release are cleaned up in this latest version.
As a preview of this issue we have a couple of articles picked out as usual.
These include showcases for Vitua Cop, Virtua Fighter 2, X-Men Children of the Atom, and Firestorm Thunderhawk 2.
