町田でオシゴト用のお買い物をしたついでに、写真の品物を購入。EA best版の「ウルティマコレクション日本語版」と「アセンション」については後日「Japanese Ultima List」に追加します。
Today, I went to a PC store in Machida City in order to buy some computer devices to be used for my work. In that store, I found some games and books which I should buy. The items are shown in above-displayed picture.
The two copies of games are "Ultima Collection Japan Edition" and "Ultima IX Ascension Japanese Edition". They are "EA best Selection" Editions, and each copy is provided with a DVD-style box. The detailed information and images thereof will be described in my "Japanese Ultima List" pages.
他のものは「山下章のChallenge! Adventure Game(復刻版)」シリーズ4冊。マイコンBASICマガジンにかつて連載されていたアドベンチャーゲームのガイドだ。当時のゲーム事情を調査するに当たっては欠かせない一級の資料である。写真も豊富に掲載されているので、がんがん活用していきたい。
The four books are "Akira Yamashita's Challenge! Adventure Game". The articles therein were originally appeared in "Micom BASIC Magazine" from 1983 to 1987. The articles had been once merged into four books, and they are reprinted last year. The books are very so impressive since the articles guide me Japanese 80's adventure games with a number of color pictures. The books will become good references for me when I'll write some articles about Japanese adventure games.
