Back when i was in school/college i always pondered about subscribing to that mag. But i ended up sticking with my regular Max Power mag for car modding, they have some fit birds in them. I also got a copy of Nuts/Zoo to go with it, all 3 for £4 at my local newsagents. 

Shot through the heart and you're to blame, 30fps and i'll pirate your game - Bon Jovi

Take me down to the console city where the games are blurry and the frames are thirty - Guns N' Roses

Arguing with religious people is like explaining to your mother that online games can't be paused...

I simply don't have time or heart to read all of that. I don't even keep up on news anymore

muh specs

Stuff- k70 with reds, steel series rival, g13, full desk covering mouse mat

All parts black

Used to be a subscriber for 7+ years until it got repetitive with the same type of article repeating itself year after year. Then there is their e-mag which comes out sometime later on than the physical, but free. I tried to give them a few chances, by continuing to subscribe with them, hoping the magazine will get better, but it didn't. What made me finally cancel my subscription was, some of the article I've read on the sites, gets repeated in the mag. Don't know how they're doing now or if they have fix their problem, don't care.

Well they used to be very good, a lot of their reviews add humor to it and the only worth issue is their Dream Machine issue, but that's just once a year.

My favorite article from them and fake ad
