Retro gaming magazine scan archives


Recommended Posts

Just out of interest has anyone ever found scans of the early 90s game guide magazines Console XS, Super XS, SEGA XS (Early issues only).

 

Console XS only got 4 issues then got split, Super XS lasted for six issue and SEGA XS had a pretty good run, but slimed down fair quickly. The early issue were thick meaty things backs with guides, screenshots and mapped whole games.

I've never seen them online but I really liked Console XS when it was new – you just didn't get such in-depth guides and maps anywhere else back then.

I still have the few issue I got, but I have all bar one of the Super XS issue (There were only 6) and one Console XS and One Sega XS.

Hi All

 

Was listening to the Maximum Power Up podcast with Martyn Carroll

https://www.maximumpowerup.com/episode-102-martyn-carroll-interview/

 

He mentioned that his replacement at RG (Darren who I believe is on here as @strider :)) used to do the Retro Section at GamesTM around the same time Martyn was editing RG.

 

That made me remember I never ever saw the Reto Sections of GamesTM, or really read mag at all.

Also recalled there was a DVD eMag of  first 50 issues of GamesTM.

So 1. Would that include Retro Sections? 2. Where would I grab it from - No luck on eBay....

 

Be interesting to read even if no Reto section in 1-5 as it's all reto now

 

Thanks, Andy

Are you interested in paper copies? The Retro section was reprinted in 'bookazine' form each year. There's several copies on ebay at the mo.

 

The most recent issue (Vol 10) can still be bought from the publisher.

Sega XS issues are on the Internet Archive if you are still looking for them.

Would there be any interest for all/any of these in here?

I doubt I’ll probably read them again, but I’ve managed to keep hold of them all these years, so it seems a shame to just chuck them in the recycling. 
I’ve got an ancient printer/scanner combo thing here, if I can figure out how to connect that up and maybe if there’s software I’d need on my laptop I could possibly have a go at going through them myself. Or are iPhone snaps acceptable?
