While still mourning the lost of my beloved NextGen magazine, I have been desperately searching for a replacement of the same caliber. Although many on this forum have recommended the UK-based EDGE, it has been difficult to find here in the states, and the subscription price of £62.02 is a little steep. Today while perusing the magazine rack in Barnes and Noble, I came across PLAY, a videogame magazine that also covers, in its own words, "anime, dvd, film, music, gear, toys." The layout and picture quality look outstanding. The articles seem to be decent in this (the December 2002) issue. Would anyone with a subscription to PLAY care to comment? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the magazine before I decide on whether to subscribe.
