    PC GAMES MAGAZINES - which one is recommended?

    I want to subscribe a pc games magazine, which is not published in germany...

    It should be anglophone (?)...which one you can recommend???

    I know about "Edge", which reads quite nice...what about others, i have no clue, since they don't sell much foreign magazines over here...

    If you have these books/magazine stores at the central station of your city then they have many different "sub stores" (at least here in Munich) that are scattered all over the central station here.They are called "Sussmann´s Pressen und blah GmbH" or something like that here.
    But I think they got a bigger parent company now (something with "k" but I can´t remember it at the moment).
    And you could try little indy PC/video game stores or indy book stores for more magazines.

    They get their stuff from these guys. Here is a link to their PC-Games section. But they normally have more than just the few magazines that you can see online.

    They can help you with subscriptions but most times it´s cheaper to subscribe from the Magazine directly (but you have to somehow manage the international payment).

    I use toilet paper. Three ply is rather nice but for the best balance between softness and control, I would recommend two ply.

    PC Gamer tends to change size everynow and then. In my recolection sometimes its huge and sometimes its rather thin.

    You answered your own question. My opinion is either that you should take a serious mag, or a not so serious one. Edge is the best for serious mags. I love their articles.

    It needs to be serious definitely...it's supposed to be a lecture for business...

    Well...i personally tend to "edge" also, unless someone else persuades me here...

    i like pcpowerplay, but i'm under the impression that it's an australian only mag. One more reason to move down under, eh?

    Pczone

    I like pczone a lot they are all down to earth and there is lots of content 140 pages in last one each page crammed with stuff from games to graphics cards etc. I really recomend it as there are pretty cool sections too. Hope you enjoy it if you buy it.
