NOURS Magazine – Volume 4 – Summer 1994

We have in this issue a HUGE Namco 40th anniversary retrospective. Lots of humble beginnings, and a “Where we’re at/the future”-style topics, that are themselves now ancient history.

I really enjoyed a bit on page 7 where they discuss “Hey here’s our overseas arcade, and there’s a Cyberstation and Aladdin’s castle, which is how I know Namco arcades as, personally.

A nice retrospective on Tinkle Pit takes over a spread, as well as an awesome deep dive of NebulasRay, which is not only a fantastic game, it’s the second game produced by the F/A team (thanks Nours, for this info.)

We have a wacky Godzilla feature, a trip to Wakayama and Toyama for Namco game centers there, and in the Elemecha Flash zone, we dive into Shoot Away II (which appears to be an FMV game?) Sweet Factory, and Shark Panic. There’s a bit of coverage of a Formula One racing event that Namco has apparently sponsored, at least in some part, and they throw in some Final Lap R information also.

Over on the Namcot side, we have YuYu Hakusho 2 for SNES, as well as Prime Goal 2.

Over in the Italian Tomato world, we have outlined for us how to make a spaghetti dish with asparagus, tomatoes, garlic, bacon and fried onions (delicious!)

Some wild photos of old-school Namco arcade times in this one, so check it out!

Editor’s note: This issue smelled so badly of cigarette smoke that I had to wash my hands after, and it has smelled up my scanning office, as well as my scanner. Though, cigarette grime is temporary, scans are forever.
