Just was looking around online for Dreamcast issues and stumbled across this thread.

I have to ask, where did you find issue #1? I can find only #0. I did find #1 on RetroMags, but then it turned out to be a corrupted file, or something, because no matter how many times I downloaded it, when I went to unzip it I was told it was empty.

I have every issue of ODCM. A wonderful Mag!
I also have a mini issue that gamepro released titled: Dreamcast Survival Guide.

Alas... I have no scanner...

I was thinking of buying physical copies of these, how much would you guys say I should be willing to dish out per issue?

They r pretty pricey, usually due to getting into constant bidding wars you go through for them.

Those and early Nintendo Power issues. It's ridiculous how much they go for online.

I wouldn't mind seeing a fully scanned collection of ODCM online. I found the humor they employed in their magazines funny. I'm sad to see it only went out of publication after a short time (was it two years?).

12 issues is what I've read, while looking for them online. That means if they published on schedule, that's 1 full year.

Any update on this project? I'd love to read through some of those DC mags. I went to RetroMags but their download links are hosted with MegaUpload, which as we all know, is no longer with us.
