This magazine sucks, read GamesTM, Edge or even NGamer if you can't stand non-Nintendo magazines.

They write about the same **** every month and give bad games good scores because it is published by Nintendo.

Oh by the way, they never send out the gifts either- they gave away Wavebirds before and only a handful of people got them. Many more complained on their forums if you want to investigate.

seriously???!!!

Well I can't confirm how many they had to give away.. and obviously people who received it are going to be less likely to make a fuss than those who didn't.

But I can assure you a lot of people complained about not getting their Wavebirds on the forums.

Also I believe they promised readers an exclusive this month which never materialised. I think it was Red Steel 2.

Sorry to post on such a vendetta but I really hate that magazine's editor.

edit. Regarding a recent promotion for a free router where customers were given a game instead of the promised router (valued at £70)

It says £12 per quarter, but do you have to do it for a year? Also, how do you get Quidco? I can't find this deal by just searching on the site...
#13
Never thought of checking Google? Or typing in quidco.com for example?
#14
I was going to do this but then I read the links and they are obviously going to rip you off, thanks for the advice :-)
#15
Fahim - don't be discouraged.

On the face of it it was a good deal ... but I suppose there's no such thing as a free lunch, eh?
#16
Yeah, thanks alot for posting the spot Fahim.

shame their are companies out there like that :( you'd have thought an official mag would be reputable.
#17
Well i got the Wavebird, and also two Wii Bags, so 3 out of 3, magazine is average, editor i hate with a passion, and the reviews are getting better
#18
Nintendo mag has gone downhill
#19
Ok, so I'd rather read NGamer. But Nintendo Magazine has come along leaps and bounds since it was a teenage rag run by Emap. And the free gifts are kinda fun (I like that sort of thing).

Edge is an incredibly more biased publication (if you can believe it - I am a games journo!) and most people on this forum know that an official mag is never going to totally trash a Ninty title...

Get game - trade in game - flick through mag. All's good.
#20
Oh, and I met the ed only once, when he still worked for Cube magazine. I found him utterly charming.

Edge is biased? Hahah. Why? Didn't they give Sony enough 10/10s?

What blog do you run then 'jouro'?
#22
gone through quidco to get to the site but cant find any mention of free game gift? do u think its finished now?

Yeah, thanks for that. I know how to use Quidco, I just can't see how to get to this offer when you go to the site through Quidco.

Nah, Edge have their own private biases, mostly based on their need to be 'the authority' on grown up gaming and a closer than average relationship with the 360. It's very much an old boy's club, which is part of the appeal to many readers. It just gets in the way of the bread and butter reviewing of games.

Blog? I am a proper grown-up salaried journalist I'm afraid, although I have traded in games for food and travel now as the pay is better. Still work across the water from Future Towers though :thumbsup:

Thanks spider~pig - you can tell it was late when I read that on their website. Also have found out it's £12.99 per quarter and min. subscription period is a year! So have cancelled direct debit as not such a great deal.
#26
i was looking at this in the magazine, ok i may be stupid but it says £12 for 3 issues and you save 11%. but the magazine is only £3.99 anyway so
£3.99 x 3= £11.97 and they want you to pay £12???
where the hell is the discount!!

In my experience of magazine journalism (which is similar to yours, Fluff), *all* magazines have a certain amount of bias simply because the powers that be (mainly the advertising department and publisher) lean on you to be kind to companies with big advertising budgets. Whilst this rarely extended to giving a sh*t product a good review, there were quite a few cases where reviews - or news stories - would simply be pulled if it was felt that the review would upset an advertiser.

Then, of course, there are the games company PR people - normally fit young women who know how to charm - who do a splendid job of ensuring that their company is seen in a positive light - think endless freebies (real value items - not games), free lunches, free foreign trips, exclusives and even (in one case I can remember) free sex! Most freebies are a bit **** - T-shirts etc - but some are definately worth having - I remember one guy who was given a brand new motorbike! Now would a journo who's on the receiving end of these hand outs honestly bite the hand that feeds them? Of course not...

Unbiased? Don't believe a word of it - money talks, ladies and gentlemen...

Definitely. I had electronic tosh coming out of my ears when I worked on games mags. Plus a wardrobe full of free t shirts – many too geeky for day-to-day wear :) Oh, and press trips packed with drugs, booze and strippers (seriously!). As a woman, I found the last bit very bemusing....

Want an exclusive on a title? You give them at least 90%. It's sad, but the pay is so **** poor that I believe you earn all the freebies.

How so? All you've posted is complete conjecture with no reasoning as to why you think they're biased towards one format/manufacturer or another.

Because there are 13 issues in a year, not 12.

Hi,
i have just looked at this deal and am a little confused
as on the magazine website you can get a quarterly sub for £9.72 (x 4 = 38.88) and you quote the same code when registering for the mag as you would for the £12 deal?
12 x 4 = £48.00, so why would you pay £48 instead of £38.88? and I assume that you also get the Harry Potter game!!!

:)

what as that got to do with it??
it says £12 for 3 issues, and i said it only works out to £11.97 for the same three issues! so what does the fact you get 13 in a year and not 12 got to do with anything????
#32
if the game arrives its a great deal, thanks to the poster.

Hah! So the pay hasn't improved at Futile then? When I was there, the pay was pathetic! I suspect the magazine industry relies on their average employee being young twenty-somethings who treat the job as more of an extention to their social life than a career. For this sort of employee, a good social life and the chance to get paid to play games is more important than trivial matters like raising a family, paying the mortgage etc...

Don't get me wrong - I enjoyed my time as a journo but it's certainly not the sort of job you could carve into a long-term career. Whilst there are those that do stay in it for the haul, few get the chance simply because their faces don't fit. I tried on several occasions to push my way up the career ladder but hit the same wall time and time again - if your face didn't fit and you weren't part of the 'in crowd', you weren't going anywhere. Eventually I left to take up a proper career that paid real money...

The Harry Potter game eventually arrived this morning!

I should be able to get some peace now as my 11 year old has been asking every other day when it was due.

Now to cancel the magazine subscription.
