Australian mag scores list updated

While moving house, we found another stash of old magazines. One of those mags happened to be Hyper #160, which had a list of every score from the first 159 issues. Like anything Hyper, there were a few mistakes so we couldn’t completely rely on it, but it has plugged a heap of gaps in the Hyper section of the scores list. As far as I can tell, we’ve got the vast majority of Hyper scores up to January 2008.

The Australian Mag Scores list now features 7,500 review scores from 20 years of Australian gaming magazines. We’re still a long way from finished however. In particular, we need scores from the following issues (issue numbers may not be accurate):

Hyper
2006: March (149)
2007: March (161)
and everything from February 2008 on (172-207)

N64 Gamer
While we have scores for N64 Gamer, we have not looked in most of the magazines to see the actual scores. Given the inconsistency of the scores section in the back of each issue, we’d prefer to have the breakdown of scores taken from each individual magazine.
1998: March to December (1-10)
1999: February (12), March (13), May (14), June (15), July (16), August (17), September (18), October (19), November (20)
2000: March (24), April (25), May (26), June (27), August (29), September (30), October (31), November (32), December (33)
