    GameFan also released a guide for Darkstalkers and the third game that I believe was arcade-only at that point, as well as their RE: Director's Cut guide also covering the Saturn version.

    I miss owning that, but went with the Versus guide that is more functional/accurate/complete, which I didn't have back when the game came out. I can't seem to currently justify owning both at their...

    Yeah, I only paid $50 at most for the guides mentioned due to how much I like those few games. I try to keep it under $30 (which is only that high due to the rarity/value of the types of guides I...

    Too many guides I used to own/wish I did then/now are commonly being sold for $50-100 and that is annoying to say the least.

    It seems there was more concern over people completing a game as a rental and not buying the game as a result (and/or the time it takes to complete a game and then sell it to a used game store, etc.)...

    Yeah, my Goemon needs a buddy (the only plush I have purchased as an adult) . . . though I have Mario and Luigi plushies from the '80s that I've had forever, along with a Genesis era Sonic.

    I'm not sure what your point is. I was exclusive to Nintendo during the 8/16-bit era due to generally not being exposed to the Master System/Genesis outside of a few games one could try at retail and...

    I agree with the former, but I'm curious about the latter. Did you find other magazines to be better for NES/SNES/Game Boy coverage or is this something more like a negative bias toward N64 or...

    I hated GamePro, but read it as a kid/teen anyway. EGM was more tolerable, but I wasn't very fond of it either. I'm pretty sure I only bothered with them because of how difficult it was to track down...
