I'd say that's because she looks rather unremarkable...

As usual, I like the issue, despite someone clearly misjudging Nebulus... What I'm curious about is something different: With all the bleating about the ads in the back of the mag that crops up from time to time, has there really been no complaint about a certain picture on page 27 so far? I was a b...

Yes but we're not talking about pre-release games though are we? We're talking about importing finished ones. The Magazine review copies I've seen have all been standard normal promo disks. Again, I did talk mainly about pre-release games when I brought up devkit/debug hardware - why would we need ...

What I don't understand is WHY Sony (or whoever) should use this method as a way of punishing the publisher of a magazine. After all, I presume Sony (or whoever) is quite interested in as much coverage as possible in as many mags as possible? They are. But they don't want people to rush out buying ...

Aren't we talking about reviewing import games before they come out in the UK. I can certainly tell you how to get a PS3 that'll do that. In fact I'll sell you one for only £600. Heh. I was talking about devkit/debug hardware... which is still the only way to play pre-release PS3-games, as no impo...

If you're too witless a journalist to sort yourself out with import/modded machines, sure. Uh-huh... I'm sure your all-knowing wisdom can tell me how to get such a modded PS3 that is capable of reliably running debug code (interestingly enough, given that chippers so far haven't even managed to get...

But what should Sony or Konami actually do about it? I doubt it's illegal to write an article saying "I went to Japan, played a game, and it was good/bad". What kind of pressure would they apply to the publisher? Like Duddyroar said, they can (and do, it has all happened) withdraw any support. Now,...

For a good while the central train station shops in Munich had 2 copies each (=4), but the last time I was there a few weeks ago, they were gone... I guess about 100% of issues sold in Germany have to be subscriptions nowadays, which isn't that surprising.

Apart from that, Konami actively discourages (to put it lightly) magazines in Germany from reviewing import games.. and since Contra 4 apparently doesn't come to PAL-land, there's no review happening. That rarely ever happens here with the big publishers nowadays. For example, pretty much everyone ...

I wouldn't even know if you've given Contra DS a lower score than because I have no idea what magazine you work for. If you have given it a low score though you're clearly wrong ;) Well, I wouldn't have reviewed it in any case, as I've never been into Contra beyond fiddling around a bit with Gryzor...

If we love a game and we're afraid it's going to fall through the cracks, then we're going to champion it every chance we get. It's that simple. If you think that's arrogance then that's up to you. Yet again I think you have to differ on that. Championing a game is all fine and well, I like to do t...

I really dislike that arrogant "everybody who thinks different"-attitude you display regarding that particular game. Show me a journalist who isn't arrogant and I'll give you my two houses. Being a games writer myself, I actually do know that. Yet being arrogant and repeatedly pointing that out in ...

Well, the best thing about this issue for me is that I guess the Manic Miner craze will be done for the near future at least... unless somebody might think doing a Making of about the GBA port is a great idea (I probably shouldn't mention this, as now it surely will be made). I wonder if Matthew smi...

RG has definitely reviewed import games before - particularly obscure Japan-only shooters on the Dreamcast and PS2. Right, I didn't think about these.. will have to look them up, though, as I suspect most of them either got covered in that 2-page round-up style thing RG is doing regularly or they w...
