Loved those leaflet things :) . I particularly like looking through the PS2 Konami ones and seeing loads of awesome-looking games that I'd completely forgotten about.

Funny you say that, as I have a Konami one lined up for Tuesday :D

But didn't know Konami did PS2 leaflets! Would love to look through them myself!

I think I have one inside Shadow of Memories. I can probably put some scans up on Tuesday :)

Hey guys. Just went through the 80plus pages here. Some great blogs. I started following a good chunk of them.
I have my own blog that I try and update as often as I can. It would be great if you guys could take a look, comment etc etc. I was going for a kind of Golden Axe theme with my background?? So pop along if only to look at that, or my Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Mario sticker albums, which account for like 90% of my visits!
I must update my links, so if you want me to add your site, just let me know.
Thanks again and keep up the good work

Cheers for the adds guys, just put up some stuff about the Offical GameBoy Players guide, which should be of interest to gameboy players funnily enough.
Blogger doing some funny things but will try tweak it a bit later.

Sorry Megamixer, took a while to see this.

Thanks for the upload, Very interesting especially as it shows a couple of Konami games that I felt were really underpublicised. I did a similar one for PlayStation 1, here

thanks again!
