Scroll Issue 8 – Artdink: The Wild, Pure, Simple Life

09[1]Scroll issue 9 is uitgekomen met de volgende onderwerpen volgens de site:

Railroad tycoons, baseball team management, open-world RPGs, sailing uncharted waters, searching for treasure under the sea, and freeform virtual toys. These aren’t the “greatest hits” of computer games from several different game makers — this is the work of Artdink. Both a pioneer and innovator, Artdink’s legacy spans nearly 30 years of mostly simulation games on subjects most didn’t touch until years after their release. And some of their other games are just plain weird. This issue goes over the highlights of the Artdink catalog, from the good and the bad to especially the weird, with special attention paid to their contemporaries and their longest-lasting franchises.

Scroll Issue 8 – The Totally Loaded and Fortified Irritating Spirit of Battle Unit Jaleco

Scroll issue 8 is uitgekomen met de volgende onderwerpen volgens de site:

Cover Story

One of the more prominent medium-sized game publishers during the NES heyday was Jaleco, originally a scrappy arcade company that gained international success mostly thanks to fresh sports games and lucrative licensing deals. And yet Jaleco was one of those game companies that seemed to leave as quickly as they arrived. In truth, they stuck around for a long time in Japan, but a string of unexpected lows brought on by declining brands and a couple of hard shifts in the game business significantly dulled their competitive edge. Jaleco isn’t quite dead yet — that or nobody’s found the body — but this issue of SCROLL nonetheless presents a curated journey through Jaleco’s history, talking about the highs, all those lows, and everything in between.

Scroll Issue 7 – Let’s Kick Shell!

Scroll issue 7 is uitgekomen met de volgende onderwerpen volgens de site:

Cover Story

Not many games based on toys, movies or TV shows end up loved. Few even make an impact on players. Even fewer sustain the effects. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took over many kids’ lives, and with help from Konami, they had games that stuck out the most in their minds. SCROLL issue 7 covers all of Konami’s principal TMNT games in the ’90s, from the troubling original NES game to the Tournament Fighters series and practically everything in between. What are they about? How do they relate to one another? And why do they always begin with the Turtles on the couch? At least two of those questions are answered in this issue, plus some non-gaming Ninja Turtle history.

Cover Story 

The cheat code is dead. It wasn’t so long ago that codes, passwords and other tricks were regularly discussed in gamerdom — so much so that some codes became as popular as the games they were made for, if not moreso. Though the mystique of codes has faded away in the age of in-game tutorials, achievements and add-ons, they still have stories behind them. From the NES to the arcade to the PC, we profile almost a dozen codes that didn’t just do cool stuff, but entered our heads, stayed in our memories, and in some cases, influenced culture. Also in this issue, an encouraging look at the recent Monster World collection, a mini-history of Xevious on its 30th anniversary, the weirdest Dreamcast ever, and more.

Scroll issue 5 is gisteren uitgekomen met de volgende onderwerpen:

Cover Story

The Japanese dating sim is one of the most characteristic and most ridiculed of the country’s gaming world. The category eventually flatlined on the path of mediocrity for nearly 20 years until Konami gave it new life with the debut of Love Plus on DS, a game with communication features that brought as much controversy as they did innovation. But what was the dating sim like before that, and just what was Love Plus’ impact? In this issue, we explore exactly that in three features that observe the Love Plus imprint on game culture, and give a guide to the latest installment, New Love Plus on 3DS. Elsewhere, we take a look inside “Genesis,” a recent retro game bar in central Japan, with a four-page photo feature.

Cover Story

Four companies — Taito, Namco, Nintendo and Sega — created the cutest video games ever made. Through limited technology of the ’80s and ’90s, they veered away from the stereotypes of gaming and made games that were bright, jolly, and appealed to people of all ages. And most of them were still pretty challenging, making them hardcore at the same time. In this issue, we catalog 24 games in the “Cute Masterclass,” analyzing the how and why of their cuteness, and giving some shout-outs to their understudies, as well.
