    Hey,
    Some guy on the Splinter Cell forum at gamefaqs said he already has the December issue of OXM and here is what he said.


    "Demos:
    SPLINTER CELL
    PANZER DRAGOON ORTA
    HOUSE OF THE DEAD 3
    TOEJAM AND EARL 3
    BLOODRAYNE
    CHASE

    Features:

    HALO 2 TRAILER
    INTERVIEW: SEGA GT

    They also said next issue will be a booster disc for Sega GT

    I didn't get the disc, but I got the mag.

    They gave Splinter Cell a 9.6, .1 better than Halo. They said it's the best Xbox game ever, and maybe the best game ever."


    I went to two bookstores yesterday to try to find the December issue, but it wasn't out yet. Does anyone know when this issue might be out? These are the best playable demos so far.

    Damn, doesn't it seem like we just got November's disc? Surely we have a week or two at least until December comes? I can't imagine getting a December issue in October.
    But hey, with those demos, I'll take it!! [​IMG]

    I believe I read that this issue is due out on November 5th.
    Some good demos! Can't wait for the Sega GT booster disc, too...although I find it hard to believe that they're releasing it so soon.
    Better than Halo, my ass. [​IMG] It does look like a cool game, though, but it won't have nearly the broad appeal that Halo did, IMO.

    couldn't handle a game better than Halo

    Well, these review scores & upcoming demos are pasted from a post on another forum. It seems that it might already be out. A couple of people claim this is legit & they got their magazine today:

    I think I'm going to stop by Barnes & Noble on my way home from work to see if they have it in yet.

    My Xbox mag has a score of 9.6 for Splinter Cell. I haven't checked any other scores yet since Splinter Cell was the only one I care about. I'm at school right now and won't be home until late tonight. Seriously thinking about skipping my late classes to play the Splinter Cell and Panzer Dragoon demos.

    I just got it today. Checked my mailbox before leaving for school and there it was. I was suprised because I didn't get last month's issue until about 2 weeks ago.

    *Dan does not actually condone skipping school to play videogames...unless they are really good videogames.

    The 6 games that were mentioned in Paul's first post are the playable demos.
    Here's a scan of the back of the disc that was posted on the TeamXbox site:
    Demo Disc #13
    I kind of wish that I didn't check my mail unti I got home. I have an exam in about 15 mintues and all I can think about it playing Splinter Cell.
    Edit: can't seem to get the link to work for some reason
    try this Video Game Review Xbox Board

    Well, how's the demo? [​IMG] Does it [​IMG] ?
    I was just watching the interview & footage they have in the November OXM. [​IMG] Let's just say I'm really looking forward to this game.

    It does indeed [​IMG] Dan.
    I played the demo extensively ( A good friend my local EB lent me his copy he borrowed from the store) and I can tell you that it will be worth the wait.
    The hype this one is getting is well deserved.

    I got the disc.

    I've only had a chance to play the Splinter Cell and PDO demos, and only once each.

    From my short impression (maybe 10 minutes of Splinter Cell, 3 minutes of PDO), I am VERY enthused. There is now a good chance I'll be buying Splinter Cell, a title I did not even consider until now. If there was an online mode, I'd be all over it, but I think the single player experience looks like it is worth the price of entry.

    I'll play both some more later today.

    When I played PDO, my first thought was, geez, they HAVE to do a PD RPG like Saga. Pleeeeaase!!!!
