I just received my OXM Magazine today in the mail. I tried the demo out and got a DDE twice although I got my Xbox fixed two weeks ago. I boiled the disc in hot water and it worked.;) The only games I seem to like are Battle Engine Equila and Tennis Masters. I sucked big time at Ghost Reacon, buy hey, first time I've ever played it.

Something is wrong when a 2d fighter and Nightcaster 2 get higher scores than Deathrow.

2-d fighters being some of the best games is an opinion...plus, there's too many of them. deathrow is a new and (semi) original concept and it rules to boot.

Am I the only person that didnt get a Quantum Redshift demo on the feb disc?

I WANT THE ****ING TOP 10 PAYS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

and whats even more strange...i just got my january issue on the 9th of december...getting my feb issue on the 27th of the same month seems a little odd...

then again, its OXM, so stupidity is expected.

OXM is under very poor management, if I would have known this and understood it's not just me, I would've never paid for a second year...:(

i thought this wasnt new, but deathrow was not a high rated game....everywhere. in fact, according to most critics, it sucked.
