What's your burning desire these days?


Recommended Posts

What's up paper peoplez!   Thought I'd see what people are actively pursuing these days (if anything!) .... 


Lately, I've been working on getting through the Versus guide book set.  It has been pretty interesting to start constructing the list off any internet resources I've found and see how far off I am versus what's available.  Hopefully over the course of this year I will be able to track them all down.  Seems like a few are over priced already, but that just makes it more fun to find it at a reasonable price. 


I've also been working on early Dimension publishing guides.  I really have been enjoying the look of the early guides and haven't been trying to get into their later publishings -> ie: anything after PS1.  Seems like they certainly were only publishing for PS1 titles in the early stages.  Pretty fun subset to work towards and there aren't any lists out there so it's like finding a new treasure when I stumble upon a new listing.  


Good times!   What's everyone diving into or looking for personally?

Slowly finishing the NES specific-game guide set (also thanks to you!), and trying to find every variant/print run of NES books globally. Discovering more and more language variants, which is cool, but finding all print runs is tough, as this is info that is generally not known / shared by sellers.

I also loosely try to complete sets of magazines and fanzines from the NES era.

My longtime is finally coming in the mail after a long time of quietly looking for a relatively cheap copy. It's called 電子遊戯大全 (denshi yuugi taizen), or "Computer Game Encyclopedia", a Japanese book from 1988 which sought to catalog every single video game release up to that point. It is an in-depth and unique writing project that explores games across the world, and I look forward to finally having a copy of my own.

The other one is what appears to be an extremely obscure Game Boy magazine from Japan, 必勝ゲームボーイプレイヤー. I say it's obscure because I can't find any info about it anywhere, aside from some sites that compile game magazine info. They just say that it was published for a year before it closed up shop. I can't find anything else besides what is written in the Japanese book "Game Boy Complete Works". I want to read more about it, or even find the magazines themselves, but it seems no one has anything uploaded about it. So, that's my next search target.
