Magazine Subscriptions

So I just got my Electronic Gaming Monthly issue for this month and I was wondering if anyone else currently subscribes to a magazine.

I feel as though magazine publications are steadily declining due to the internet, but it looks like EGM is able to stay in the game and do it pretty well. Each issue I receive is still very interesting to read even if the news is a couple weeks old.

So what magazines are you subscribed to? (Playboy = +10 points)

I never subscribed but i always used to get an official PS2 mag back in the day that came with a dvd full of trailers and demos. next gen mags have gone downhill, i tried two and didnt like them and dont want to waste the money on another.

I used to subscribe to PSM back in the day, when it was still about PSX. I let my subscription run out right around when the first photos of PS3 were coming out. It used to be a really funny, interesting magazine. I'm not bashing the new stuff, but it was really fresh about 10 years ago.

I'm subscribed to Guitar Techniques magazine, which will run out this or next month. I won't re-subscribe, since I have to catch up on a lot of the magazines I already have, and they have plenty of content in them to keep me occupied for a while.

I've been subscribed to the McSweeney's quarterly publication, which is $55 for a year/four issues. They usually send some sort of hardcover book or set of small books that include a variety of content from various contributors. They do some incredibly creative stuff sometimes.
I subscribe to PC Gamer Magazine, I just got my new copy today, which is ontop of my computer atm.

I have an internet subscription to PC Gamer... don't know why.

And like Billy, I used to read OPS2M, but I don't think it was ever a subscription...

I forgot to mention that the EGM subscription I have was free of cost for a full year. It came with my GameFly subscription so I thought why not. Once the full year has passed, I doubt I will renew my subscription. Magazines just take up space in my opinion. Now that I'm done with this month's issue, I don't know what to do with it. I guess it's trash time again. Smile

Yeah, I still have stacks of PSM on my shelf. I'm going to throw them out soon.
Looking back on your post from 2008 from 2013 and I must say that Magazines have really fallen overboard. GamePro shut its doors on December 5, 2011.

Game Informer still offers magazines, but they have since started up an online magazine that gets sent out via email every issue. I think GI has really only survived with the help of GameStop. With GameStop PowerUp Rewards program, you get 12 issues of Game Informer.

I quit getting the print magazines and have gone with digital because the ones I do have are stacked on the shelf of my tv stand collecting dust. Might be worth something to look back at in the future.
I once got a call from a telemarketer saying that since I was such a good customer in the past they were going to give me 5 magazine subs for free for a year, I said no thank you that just means my trash can will fill up too fast and its more work for me, and you dont have any gaming magazines or porn so im not interested. He replies We have penthouse, would you be interested in that one. Sure but thats only one. Well give it to you for 5 years instead of 5 different ones for 1 year....cool.

Nintendo Power Smile I sub'd to them way back in the 64 era days as well. Im fairly sure I got the 100th Issue edition somewhere as well.
Never really had a magazine subscription, the only reading I do not on my PC is the UK's Financial Times.
