View Full Version : Which magazine do you read?

01-05-2002, 06:28 PM
For years I read CVG (www.computerandvideogames.com) but about two years ago I found a magazine called EDGE (www.edge-online.com) which was the greatest computer mag I had read. I will be getting the Official UK Xbox Magazine when it comes out - I have the US Launch Special already.

Okay, I wanted to know what magazines you read to keep you up to date with the "gaming industry," take it away... :D

I looked into subscribing to Edge but it is REALLY expensive! Next Generation used to cost $12/year (a bargain, to be sure). Edge costs 30 pounds/year! Isn't that in the neighborhood of $60 USD?

Yeah about $50 I think....I was gonna subscribe, I should subscribe because you save about £10 than buying them individually...

I've read Next-Generation mag for almost five years. Sadly the mag is being canned by Imagine Media for some unknown reason to me. Next-Generation wrote for the mature gamers out there and always wrote unbiased intelligent articles. I am still deciding on the next mag I will subscribe to, I'll probably wait and see what mag the writers form Next-Gen end up reporting for and subscribe to that one.

Oh I just gotta pick a fight. EGM blows!

Anyway, I haven't even picked up that rag since, like, ten years ago. Maybe it has improved.

I don't particularly like any of them but I do get OXM for the demo disks. I'm also getting the craptacular PSM because the ODCM went out of publication. I rather they would have just kept my money to be honest with you.

Famitsu should open an american magazine, just translate what they have and send it over. I bet that's be hilarious. I hear they are ultra critical...

I only read the OFFICIAL XBOX MAGAZINE. Love the articles and previews for games to come. And of course the free disc of playable demos and sneak preview games. Did you get the February edition. WWWWWOOOOOOOWWWWWWW the disc is fully packed and the magazine is incredible. They rate the games really good. :D

I love the humor in OXM.
