As Nintendo Gamecube owners and fans what magazines do you read?

I personally am subscribing to NGC, and I occasionally get Official Nintendo magazine, but have never sampled Cube or G-Force.
I am also an Edge reader.

What are your opinions?

I get NGC, NOM, Cube, CVG and Games Master.
NGC is the best, i get NOM for official news, and get cube because i like their features and news coverage (like the six pages they spent saying how gamecube wasn't kiddy)

I then get CVG and GM, because all my friends have playstation 2's, and they all hate gamecube ,morons (they don't come on here, so i can say that), i just get the mags so i can read the ps2 news and have something to talk to them about.

Only ever got 1 issue of Edge, the one with super mario sunshine in, i just wanted to read their reveiw of it.
Quite a good mag actually, althougfh may be a little grown up for some people.
(I remember they had an article about how piracy affects the market, etc.)

I get CUBE because I have liked it for a very long time, although NGC is probably better...
NOM is rubbish. Its reviews are boring, it has become pompous and blind to the fact that Nintendo needs to put more effort into it's marketing and genaral running of the company in Europe. It also has too many adverts.
Don't get me started on the Datel funded G-FORCE. Practically every page has adverts for Datel products. They know nothing about games, have little/no experience and are too expensive.
As for Edge and GamesTM, I read them in the shop, much cheaper.

I remember when he tried to argue that a letter saying
"I love 4 player gaming it's great"
was deep and meaningful, showing how popular multiplayer had becoe, and how important it was.
How we all laughed.

I agree with Maverick42 NOM's is much better

Do you close your eyes when you read it, or do they pay you to say this?

Actually I'm betting you can't read, I don't blame you for preffering NOM over NGC, there's so many pretty pictures.
