ten quid, frikkin ridiculous, they fob you off with a cheap CD full of crap demos.

I make a point of avoiding magazines with CD's on, unless it's something really great.

I agree. The magsine is not even good!! Half the time the "Dee-mos" are rubbish anyway! A peice of paper and a disk is worth no 10. The reviews are samey, and the staff writers..ugh...AGhh. I have only bought 5 issues of the mag ever, as i think its a rip off and their reviews are in poor taste.

Speeking of that, I recently feel raped by the way MS have forced me to download for 45 minutes a new update for MSN Mesenger, then, only after I downloaded it does it mention that you need Windows 98 or newer to run the F'ing thing. So that now leaves me, a windows 95 user completely F'ed.

No MSN for me.

Its a skam because its quite possibly the worst magazine I have ever read and its written by what appears a set of no handed monkeys.

How is it a scam ? It's not hidden, you don't walk up to the counter in WHSmiths thinking it's 99p and then get told it's 10 and they'll kill you if you don't pay.

Welcome to Capitalism gentlemen.

No magazine is worth 10 he is right. OPS2 offers some pretty decent playable demos each month and thats cheaper than OXM. Its just a big scam to skank people out of money.

Does anyone force you to buy it ? Nope, you look at it, make your own judgement as to it's value and either buy it/don't buy it. It's not like any other magazine has playable demo games either.
