    I just got my new issue of EGM and there are some interesting things.
    The GCN screenshots from SpaceWorld look really good. Even better than the videos.
    The cover opens up to be an ad for Halo. Neat, but annoying cuz my cover is ugly now.
    LOTS of ads for PS2 and XB games, like ICO, Halo, Cel Damage, Agent Under Fire, Ace Combat 4, Soldier of Fortune, and a buncha other games.
    The famous "naked guy" GameCube ad.
    The covers for NFL Fever 2002, Halo, Project Gotham, Amped, Munch's Oddysee, New Legends, Mad Dash Racing, MX 2002, NHL Hitz 2002, Tony Hawk 2X, Shrek, Dead or Alive 3, Starfighter SE, Madden 2002, 4x4 Evo 2, Max Payne, Dave Mirra 2, and Nascar Heat 2002 for X-Box are in an Electronics Boutique ad and all are $54.99.
    A section that opens up as an ad for the X-Box.
    A whole lotta previews and reviews for PS2 games.
    Overall, this issue is going to be the first of the multi-console advertising types. There is a lot of info and pictures, along with ads, crammed inside of it. I suggest you check it out cuz its probably worth the neat ads and screenshots alone.
    EDIT: Forgot to mention the kickass Metal Gear Solid 2 ad. It might not be as kickass as some others, but its a great one and definitely applies to the submerging idea.

    And you *completely* forgot the most important part of the new EGM... The very positive review of Spy Hunter [​IMG]

    To me, its content has always seemed "lightweight" & its layout messy. But then, I think that of almost all US console gaming magazines.

    Back in the day when they had adults running the magazine it was great. Now it's basically Nintendo Power for all consoles (although I may argue that NP is classier).
