So...E3 2019:

Phantasy Star Online 2 for Xbox One
Football Manager on Xbox Game Pass PC
Shenmue 3 showed up at the PC Gaming Show
Panzer Dragoon Remake on Switch
Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Olympics

I think that was all that was showcased at the conferences.

To add to this Alien Isolation is on....something. I forget what. It might gave been in some montage.

EDIT: It's the Switch. Alien Isolation is on Switch.

A little anecdote about Monster World IV's localization. I think this is new information.

What up team.


How much do you know about 1970s Japanese arcade games?

Trick question - nobody knows a damn thing about 1970s Japanese arcade games. But there's an opportunity to learn:


https://archive.org/...+Machine&page=1

Recently uploaded to archive.org - a bunch of "(The) Game Machine" issues published between 1974 and 1980. Quite useful, but ruined in that they're stored as double-page spreads in horribly compressed, wonky PDFs.


Why do we care? Well I picked an issue at random and found this:

Four pinball tables not in the list, an undocumented version of Faro and two undocumented Black Jack machines. Also a photo of Sega's version of Missile Command.

Oh and that game on the right with the squares? That's Targ by Exidy. The Sega version is undocumented.


Anyone with magic powers able to turn these into something more... presentable?



And yes.



Muhammad Ali was big in the 70s.

Well then, how about some Swedish broadsheets?

This lovely lad has scanned issues of Datormagazin from 1986 to 1995. The problem? Some pages need splitting. Also most of these won't be relevant to our interests.

It needs combing through.

Do you want the pages ordered in the "western" way, right? ... since these are ordered in Japanese style right? ...
