Yea I'm talking about the next OXM. I already got the one with Gladius and Jurrassic Park. Jp is cool and I don't think Gladuis is that great;)

That was the July issue, I thought that most people would have it already. Not sure about the next one.

That Gladius demo blew huge chunks. I sat down and tried to play it... it took 5 to 10 minutes just to get to a point where I had control over the game, and then, it wouldn't let me do anything. Maybe if I'd read more in the magazine or something, I would have been able to find my way into some actual "game," but they should know that the average gamer is going to just throw the disk in and hit Start. Confusing interfaces = frustrated gamers = low sales.

I got this yesturday. I am really happy with the demos on this disk. While there are not many....they were very helpfull.

I always thought SOF2 would be terrific, but then it got low reviews and I was like eh....i dunno if i want to buy it. The demo helped in that decision, as its an ok game...but ill wiat for a price drop since i dont have live.

GR was of course awesome, but its more of the same thing. The only differences I noticed were smoother animations, and your guys run and straff a bit faster. That to me is something thats a huge impovment, just coz it doest make going form area to area so long and tedious. Also, im sure it will kick up multiplayer a bit.

And the Mace Griffin was the most helpful demo of all. Three days ago, when someone asked me what i though of this game id say "Never seen it, but it sounds geh, I wont bother picking it up". Now that ive played the demo i'd say "This is possably one of the best FPS games ive ever played, and the flight stuff only makes it better. A must own!"

There were also alot of nice previews in this magazine...and as you can see thanks to borka, the reviews werent lacking either. Also the big release thing is very cool. I did notice tho MotoGP2 is listed as a winter release, which is odd since it came out about a month ago :huh:

I just got mine in the mail today.

What I want to know is where the hell is Kola Cell???!!!! They were supposed to have it and they keep putting it off. Now they say it's going to be on the next disc which will be the Sept. issue. Wouldn't be surprised if they put it off again :eek:

Well, at least you guys get discs. I haven't gotten a disc with my magazine yet. I have to fill out their stupid form and wait a couple of weeks to get an out-of-date disc.

It was disappointing reading that there was a technical problem for OXM not getting the "downloadable" content in their August OXM disc (Page 13). Its okay for me, however. I am too busy buying XBOX games to replace my PS2 collection (games that are multi console). I hadnt played any PS2 games in months thanks to my Halo, Unreal Championship, and other XBOX games. So, I tried playing PS2 again and I couldnt stand it. I am so used to the XBOX controller and the excellent games of the BOX that I just had to do what I had to do: disconnect my PS2 and put it in the closet!

I do still have my GameCube as well as my XBOX connected to an old TV (its so old, I need RF adapters!). However, the XBOX is getting more play than the Cube these days. The PS2 was bound to get put in the closet eventually anyways.
