The Player! The Player!

YES! More good news for the pervy lot reading this humblest of lairs. The Player, the only online magazine I know of that can deal with mainstream gaming the way only a true chap would, is back. Download issue 9 via this very direct link without spending a penny and savor each and every one of its 52 pages.

Issue highlights include a Sports Interactive interview, some highly arousing Football Manager Live info, a 3DO retrospective, reviews of Mass Effect and Mercury Meltdown Revolution and the Online Safari feature.

  1. Why the hell would anyone buy this if they can get it for free?

  2. Buy? What do you mean buy dear funnyman? All I can see is a donations button, which I strongly encourage pushing...

    Oh, and don't miss out on the podcast either...

  6. It's puzzling as to how great many free online magazines are and to how unprofessional many print ones are.

  7. A wise remark indeed dear ross. I'd say it has to do with passion...

  8. Love 'The Chap'! A fabulous resource indeed... Strange that this worthy publication got slated on UK: Resistance... But I suppose they are a funny lot...

    By the way Gnome, any idea what happened to good old Elderly? He hasn't updated in ages!

  12. This is the first time checking this mag out for me - and I've got to say it's shades better than anything I've ever purchased off the rack.

    Thanks for pointing it out to me.

  13. Really Father? And I used to think those SEGA guys were a fine bunch. Oh well...

    Same feelings here Tom and I'm pretty sure Elderly wont be too long.

    Glad you enjoyed it oh Dane of War. BTW, you might also enjoy the (proper-commercial) Games TM mag too.
