Computer Games: Strategy Plus …

Issue 191 is now available.

This issue was missing six pages torn out. I have used the stubs of the missing pages to determine the missing advertising for three pages and substituted them from other magazines that had the same advertising, however two adverts are still missing along with one editiorial page (not game review content). Nevertheless, until we can acquire another copy of this issue or someone who has this issue can scan the missing pages for us this will more than suffice in the mean time.

PC Gamer (USA) …

Many years ago a Retromags member asked me if I'd like his collection of PC Gamer (USA) magazines. As I was keen but neither of us could afford to ship them to New Zealand I gave him my brothers address in Maryland to send them to. Nothing seemed to come of it as no magazines turned up at my brothers address. A few years later IIRC I got an email from the donator who advised he was at College and hadn't been home in years hence nothing turning up as he hadn't had a chance to get back to package them up. My brother had shifted address by then so I gave the new address and thought no more of it as seemingly there wouldn't be much happening for some time. Lo and behold a year or so ago, after I'd actually visited my brother for a holiday two big boxes of magazines turned up on his doorstep.

Well, my brother flew in for a flying visit this weekend and brought a couple of magazines from the boxes with him for me to check and see if they were what I wanted/was expecting. As they were I have given him $150US to ship out what he can with the money so soon we should hopefully have a load of these to complement the Computer Games: Strategy Plus magazines I received recently. In the mean time I have scanned issue 119 which he brought over and is now available. This issue was unopened and contained the demo CD-Rom so expect that to end up on Archive.org at some point.
