Don't be tempted to buy this, it's crap. Just thought I'd let you know before anyone else throws 8 quid down the toilet.

Someone was creaming themselves about it in "The Other Place"... oh, just checked and you already know that because you posted there too.

Is it in a poly-bag or will I be able to thumb through and get the idea without buying it?

If you go into a Smiths they usually have one copy of any bagged up magazines that they sell 'loose' on the shelf (whether for people to glance at or because someone goes around all the Smiths in Birmigham nicking pack-in freebies, I don't know).

Yeah, no bag. Wish I'd looked at it before buying it.

There is some nice stuff in there (though certainly not 8 quids worth, and most of it can be found on the net anyway) but the selection of games that are represented is highly questionable and I was just massively disappointed when I got to the end. It feels like a bit of a wasted opportunity when I think of the stuff that could have been in there.

More likely there's someone goes in there who, like me, just opens the fucking bag and has a look. Fuck those fuckers who put their fucking magazines in plastic fucking bags. Fuck them good. I aint buying no magazine without taking a looksee first.

Wow, am I ever in a bad mood this morning, or what? I got no idea where this came from, to be honest. I had a pretty good weekend, all told.

I got it the other day, some very nice art, at some point I may attack it with a stanley knife and frame some of the better images :)
