New Gaming mag, Free Downloads for Life!!!

Before you rush out to buy your overpriced, poorly produced, inanely edited glossy this month, spare some time first and

Gone but not forgotten
Why should I?
well for a start it'll cost you nothing, de nada, rien.

Ah but theres a catch!
no hitches, catches, snags, snaffus, strings, threads or commitments.

I bet it's crap!
Ah.....actually no, its a professionally produced, quality magazine that avoids the spotty teenager prose so evident in many "official" magazines I've had the misfortune to pay cash for.

Your just writing this cause your paid to!
Ah.....actually no again, i'm telling you about it, simply because I've read it and I like it, and I admire what the guys are trying to do. It offers an alternative to the financial gamble you take every time you hand over cash at your local newsagent.

So whats in it?
Reviews: Metroid Hunters, Sensible Soccer, X-Men: The Official Game, GI Jockey 4 and R-Type Final
Previews: Age of Conan, Assassin's Creed, Viva Pinata, Loco Roco and many more
Features: Dodging the Bullet, Collection Builder
Retro: Rampage, IK+, Story of the Bitmap Brothers and SpeedBall 2: Brutal Deluxe
Columns: Metaphor Pioneer, Continu3?

the dodging the bullet feature on game content and its affects on gamers is worth the download time alone.......... and thats a promise!

Theres no demo disc!
.......................!

You are absolutely right, and this is the proper way of presenting such a great mag...

I -once again- bow in front of your greatness.

The Elderly said...

please gnome no!,

the last time you bowed you banged your head off the floor......
(stops gnome before he cracks the parquette flooring)

it is I mr.gnome who must attest to merely following in your footsteps, I am but a mere mimicker of the kindness and honesty you afforded the playd team by posting on your illustrious lair.

(elderly bows, gnomes aura glows brightly....and the hint of a halo appears above his battered little hat)

gnome said...

Great... Now we're both down with lugago. Quite a summer it will be.

Besides, you presented the mag in a much better fashion.

I can't bow anymore, but I'll apllaud.

Gamer C. said...

I bow to both you because of the great content in both of your blogs. It is the personality of both of you that makes me come back everyday.

Free online gaming magazine? I like the whole sentence I just wrote. I gotta check this out.

The Elderly said...

lol gnome.......indeed applauding is laudable what with our lumbago.....one short round of applause each then

(gnome and elderly discuss who should applaud last, gamer C enters)

thank you gamer C, you are too kind, indeed the variety, originality and quality content of your own esteemed blog is to be praised and i look forward to what surprises you have in store for us over the coming months

(elderly starts a round of applause for Gamer C)

gnome said...

I'll join in the general fun too... I'll whistle and shout "Hoorah" every 22 seconds!

Then I'll buy everyone a round...

The Elderly said...

(ponders the specific number 22 as he rushes to the bar)

Me first..........!

(gnome, elderly, gamerC all rush to the bar.....gnome trips elderly, who tumbles against Gamer C, who unbalances Gnome....all three lie prostrate on the floor as the barwoman enters)

"right!" she says
"your all barred"

(Gamer C and elderly stare at Gnome)
.......

gnome said...

Why's that?

The Elderly said...

we wouldn't have been rushing to the bar if you hadn't mentioned it......

gnome said...

You're so absolutely right. Let's drink to that!

(everyone rushes out of the bar nd into the pub)

The Elderly said...

thats what i love about Gnomes, always one step ahead when dealing with adversity and hormonal barmaids...

.....last to the bar buys the take away....

Tomleecee said...

Downloaded the mag on your recommendation - and it's a damn fine read. I'll definatley be reading the next edition. Cheers.

gnome said...

Cheers, smiles and drinks all around!

(... I was the last one as usual ...)

The Elderly said...

thanks tomleecee your welcome, although i think gnomes review of the same mag had a more direct, noble approach.........

(ponders why Gnome has so readily agreed to buy the take aways.....considering Gamer C is still chatting with the barmaid next door)

Gnome, you plan on getting paralytic again don't you?

gnome said...

;)

Only slightly...

A wee bit...

The Elderly said...

(elderly smiles) you do have your key I hope, i'm not squeesing you through the letterbox like lastime.........

gnome said...

(gnome smiles back)

Don't worry. Be happy.

:)

The Elderly said...

you forgot your key.......okay don't worry......we'll figure something.


Slainte.......!
