I remember there was a site that had scans of old video game mags from the early 1980s.

anyone know of such a site? or was I dreaming?

About a month ago I saw some old Nintendo Power and Sega Visions mags being uploaded to the newsgroups. Maybe 4-6 issues total. I remember there was a site/forum set up for the people doing the scanning, but I'm not sure if they had any downloads from there. They might have had some torrents... I'll have to look for those pdfs when I get home later today.

That is the site doing the scans I have. I grabbed the first 3 issues of Nintendo Power and a single issue of Visions, not sure if there have been more releases. I found those in alt.binaries.emulators.sega. Don't know if there have been any more issues released.

BTW, the mags are in .cbr format, not pdf.

It looks like it's one of those places you have to register at in order to even see what they have, let alone download it.

And before you ask, .cbr (dot comic book rar) is just a .rar archive renamed so it can be associated with a comic book reader (.cbz is the same thing but with zip files, BTW).

Yeah, and even worse, you have to use shittorrent to download them once you do register...
