Retromags found Game Informer issue one!


Some good news for your Sunday, your day of rest. Retromags, a Web site that scans and archives old (up till 1999) video game magazines, has got its hands on the very first issue of Game Informer. Let us celebrate!

The issue hasn’t been scanned yet, so you’ll wait a little while longer to read about Game Genie Controversies, Funco and how to beat that new Sonic game.

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Retromags, but it’s pretty great. (Is what the site’s doing legal? I don’t know and, more importantly, I don’t care.) It’s just great to go back and read some of the old mags every now and then.

And while we’re on the subject, it’s the site’s 4th birthday this month, so lifetime premium accounts (you can download more magazines per week), the money of which goes toward buying more old magazines from eBay, is only $10. That’s so cheap even I can afford it!

Now then, back to my day of rest, which includes watching Ken Burns’ The Civil War.
