for those of you who subscribe to xbox magazine, did you notice in the newest edition, that there is no future man section? no telling is whats in next months issue, and no interview thing. i recently got a survey from them, so maybe they're reformatting? what do you think?

I bought this subscription only for the DVD's but not a single DVD made me smile. Also most demos are games already out, even sometimes months out.

The latest DVD has a halo demo and all old games I mean like what the ****.

<--- Unsatisfied customer.

But luckly my subscription ends in november, just in time where I can chose what demo to download via xbox live. I hope oxm gets bankrupt.

It seems that some or one of the editors is leaving the mag, don't know if he was the mole or the future guy, so maybe that's why....
I am still undecided on weather to sub again or not, OXM really has lacked lately on alot of things....They better pick up the slack or else :D

I'm not sure why you guys buy video mags when you have internet. I buy it for the demo disc but they sux latey. For the same price, I can rent a couple of games.

AND WHAT HAPPENED TO MY "ROBOT MONKEY APOCALYPSE!?!?"
heh, that was funny as hell. i'll probably renew as long as they keep the demo disks comming... even though it pretty much sucks ballz, has no new content, and have some repeat halo b.s. on it every other month. :rolleyes:
...oh well

The opinions at times are al little off, IMO, and the disks aren't perfect but, it's pretty infomative in terms of games coming down the line, hardware, and other misc. stuff.

The disc's, well, yes they do lack those upcoming titles sometimes, but it does give me a taste of games i don't own ,that i may consider buying.

If your buying it monthly, don't, it's too expensive. If you subscribe, your taliking about $2.00 a month, i think it's worth $2.00.;)

Yea...

-Dan Egger (The Genious guy) is leaving.
-No rumor Mole this Issue
-No Future Guy Either
-Reader Interaction is only One page
-Only 3 new Challenges this month
-No "Test" (Usually On the last page) either
-No new Demos

God... this issue sucked... yet, had a nice cover. Hmm. :p

They make all these nice looking covers with "Halo 2!" so every1 buys it then see "What we want to be in Halo 2" and its.....basically un-funny jokes.

No wonder why the features editor is leaving, this mag has gone down hill. First of all theres little content, and the demo's have always sucked, and all your getting in every issue is the old demos from issue 1 + the doa3booster disk

This was the worst issue of OXM ever. No mole, no future guy (probably got fired since he is always predicting things that don't actually make it into the magazie or demo disc (like Sega GT!!), and the demo disc is absolutely horrid. Not only are all the demos of really old games, but they are all demos that I can get from previous OXM demo discs.

Absolute crap. And they have the balls to ask me to renew my subscription for 2 more years (for $50). Fat chance of that happening.
