NAG April 2010 Issue Out Now [News]

It’s the last Thursday of the month – that means it’s time for the new NAG to arrive. And so it has. I got my copy today. It’s the April 2010, 12th Birthday Special Edition. And this one is better than everyone of the others this year so far.

As you can see, the issue has gone StarCraft II mad- they claim that it’s not just coincidence that NAG and the last StarCraft came out in the same year.


There are reviews of some big games: BioShock 2 which naturally got a high score, Aliens vs. Predator, which NAG was quite lenient on, considering some of the negative reviews the game has gotten lately. And there’s Heavy Rain, Star Trek Online, Dante’s Inferno, Borderlands: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and a couple of mini-reviews on RE 5: Gold Edition, and The Sims 3: Ambitions. But the game that got the Editor’s Choice would be God of War III.

As for previews, there’s one on Metro 2033, the post-apocalyptic shooter which just released this month. NAG also has a look at Kane& Lynch 2: Dog Days.
There are still plenty of videos on the Cover DVD, as is the fashion with NAG. But the good news is that there is actually some other stuff worthwhile on this DVD this month. You’ll be pleased to know that the freeware versions of Command& Conquer: Tiberian Sun and Firestorm, released by EA for free last month, have made it onto the disc. And the size of both is nearly about the same as The Dark Mod, which has been in the “queue” for nearly the last six months.

No, I’m not going to drop this, NAG. Not on your life.

And there’s some free e-books: “Dracula” by Bram Stoker, and “War of the Worlds” by H.G. Wells. Both excellent reads. And there’s an update for the ever useful NAG CD/DVD database, which lets you search for an item on your PC, without having to comb through tons of Cover Discs. Nice.
There’s also a StarCraft II fansite kit. Told you they went mad with SC II. Free games include Narbacular Drop [basically the prequel to Valve’s Portal, if I’m not mistaken], and a flash game based on Portal.
There’s the usual patches and drivers, but the demos section feels a little flat to me this month, but it’s more than made up for by the “Extras” section. Well done.

And not to mention, there’s those videos…

What does AAA stand for?

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