Archives – Links to the archives of magazines listed in the presentation

Additionally there is a web site, EmuParadise, that’s mostly dedicated to emulation that has an archive of gaming magazines including the ones here.  While I don’t find any malicious software, malware, or other such nefarious means, it should be noted this site has been flagged for illegal downloads many times.  It appears to be under no danger of shutting down, however, and has always provided quality, safe downloads for me.  Use at your own risk.

You can also find many magazines on BitTorrent, although that legality is so questionable I avoid it completely.  Retromags.com is an excellent resource, but it uses the newsgroup (NBZ) format that basically references the web and utilizes a paid server to read the magazines, so it’s hardly convenient for magazine-like reading on the go.  These are probably your most complete collections but they are also risky or cost money.
