Nobody talks here about magazines, yet for most people here, information and knowledge is all based around magazines. There are great magazines (PSM2), OK magazines (NGC) and pants magazines (Nintendo Official Magazine). What magazine do you read. Personally, I read Edge (God-like magazine for intellectuals), NGC, OPS2 and PSM2. Call me sad, call me weird, but I like gaming so read a variety of different magazines. What do you read (or look at)???

Well I won for a cheat (it was number 3 in the charts and was for Donkey Kong 64 - a cheat I found out myself!) I lost to a cheat someone had found somewhere - one of those button bashers.

Ah well... 3rd.. But what did I get?

A PIN BADGE.

Then the anger began...

Edge... subscribe to...

After all, it's the only one with completely faor reviews...

If a game gets 5/10, it means EXACTLT that... it's in the middle.. average, nothing good, nothing bad...

Oh, and it has columns writen by some of gamings' biggest... like the monkey ball man! :)

N64 Magazine lied. In issue 55 or something, there was a Mickey's Speedway USA challenge which offered a game to the winner. I won, and 2 issues later it showed me and my prize... hold on a sec... I get a crappy 3rd party controller, where's my game??? I was very annoyed. I won fair and square, but got some cheap prize because they have new sponsers. Sold it for a fiver. Grrrrrr. Many hours of time-trialing down the drain.

Oh yeh that reminds me some of you under 15 FHM fans will soon not be able to get the likes of Loaded, FHM and Maxim. They are going to enforce a minimum age very soon of 15 years old to stop 11 year olds buying it..

Poor you hey? I'm 16 though so neeeeeeeer :P

I just get FHM. I'll buy a copy of a magazine if it has a good DVD or game on the front.

I used to get NOM until they reviewed South Park.. then I used to get N64 Magazine until I posted them a cheat and the next month that cheat won the top prize and they printed my name wrong :/ ;-)

Now I just read Special Reserve Magazine whenever it comes and look at the games then get online and see if they are any good. Nice and cheap :D

Yeh, millions of times. In a parallel dimension or somthing. Anyway, how would YOU know, you haven't been here for a month yet. I've been here longer than you and haven't seen a topic like this. And it isn't SPAM. You're too dumb for your own good.
