    For 9 fucking dollars

    And the cd it came with, the only demo I would bother playing (Aliens vs monsters) doesn't work :squint::squint:

    I didn't know the magazine was so expensive, you can get a year subscription for only $19 :squint:

    plus the magazine is boring as hell to read... Game informer > *

    Game informer is the only one that i'd actually pay for and even then with the internet these days why would you pay for one source of gaming reviews/news when there's www.gamerankings.com for starters.

    PC Gamer was awesome back in the day when Vederman was still writing for it... since he left fuck it. and since demos were like the size of a dvd they havnt been worth it either. the last issue that was worth it was like july 2000 had a disk with like 16 or so old dos games. that was the shit. still have it too... infact I have them here at work.

    gameinformer has incredibly inflated game reviews. The old great days of pc gamer have gone, but I still pick it up from time to time

    PC magazines are pretty pointless these days. They're out of date by the time they hit the shelf and all of the companies advertising can be found online so no point just buying it for that anymore.

    You could always download PDFs :hsugh:

    All magazines are expensive as hell now :hs:

    I haven't really looked into gaming for a long, long time. I don't know what sites are worth a damn.

    Been stuck on SNES

    I mean I still have new games, but I buy them from word of mouth.

    man... the old Red Baron game was probably my favorite flight sim/dogfight game ever. I should go find that somewhere.

    the only game magazine i get is gameinformer because i got a sub when i got my gamestop card, aside from that i think the last time i actually bought a game mag was 8 years ago and they were 5-6 dollars a pop and the ones with cd's didnt cost extra. 9 $ is too much for a pc mag

    I get PSN and Xbox mag - which are essentially the same thing, with the exception of the handful of games that only come out for one of the systems.
