March Issue of NAG Magazine out This Thursday

The long awaited last Thursday of the month is looming, and we all know what that means: the new NAG will be in stores!

Included in this issue is a hands-on with the Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight multiplayer beta, and Heavy Rain, which is out today for the PS3, by the way. Reviews include Mass Effect 2 (playing it right now – epic game), Darksiders (everyone’s raving about this one), Army of Two: The 40th Day and Dark Void (got mixed reactions). Also advertised on the somewhat uninspired and unusual cover is something about an “uber, must-have guide to everything awesome” in 2010.

You’ll be pleased to know that this issue won’t have sand in it like the February issue did. In case you didn’t know, that was a marketing stunt that backfired pretty badly. The issue was themed around sand, you see. It was actually dubbed “The Sand Issue”, but the sand deposited in the plastic bag ended up getting in to the DVD packaging, and some people couldn’t even play the DVD, because it got scratched. They should have at least put the sand in a little bag or something.

As for the DVD’s contents, highlights include a Dark Void demo, and two demos centred around zombies, Zombie Driver and Zombilution, seeing as NAG is Zombie-mad, as is most of the world right now. There’s also the new Gamemaker 8, a 2D Half-Life game, as well as the usual hundreds of trailers and stuff.
Anyway, there’s no mention of this issue featuring two DVDs. I think it’s still under consideration and a result will probably come in later this year. The last time I checked, the poll on the NAG website was leaning more towards “Yes, give us another DVD!”.

On that note, if you haven’t yet done it for some reason, the time for your vote is coming to an end, as the 24th of February, which is tomorrow, and the day before the new issue comes out, is the last day that you can vote on this issue of whether you want another DVD bundled with the NAG, complete with a R10 price increase.

The short version: SMS “YES” or “NO” to 32541

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
