    Gamepro just started showing up on my doorstep. I wonder if it is from ordering unbundled XBox and 'Cube units from Best Buy.
    Has this happened to anyone else?
    I wonder if I should call them to make sure I don't get billed. The magazine is AWFUL.

    Yeah, I got the last two. I think the 1st one came with a mailer stating that it was due to the unfinished subscription to the Dreamcast Magazine (at least in my case).
    What a piece of crap magazine (GamePro).

    Do you have a login name, etc with GameSpy??? If so then thats why you are getting them....GameSpy was giving its members 1 free year of GamePro.........I still cannot believe that that magazine is still around.

    I cancelled my GamePro subscription long ago because it turned into MTV Magazine, completely aimed at teenagers. But for some reason, I've been getting all the recent issues. Maybe my subscription hasn't run out yet. *shrug*
    I now only subscribe to PCGamer and EGM, as far as gaming mags go.

    Ick, I can't even remember the last time I even looked at a Gamepro.
    I used to like it as a kid (not entirely sure why) but it went downhill fast, soon after implementing it's rating system.

    Thank God no! That mag is terrible. I haven't read it in over 6 years, it started feeling like a kiddie mag. That was when I was 17.

    Let's remember GamePro is marketed at the younger crowd. In my experience, however, even kids hate it. [​IMG]
