Brendan inspired me here.

Do you subscribe to any magazines or catalogs or online newsletters or anything like that?

Currently, I get Game Informer each month, as well as periodic e-mail updates from the San Francisco Giants and NFL Shop. Among other things.

I subscribed to EGM and Expert Gamer back in like, I dunno, 2001. The first issue I got of XG was when they changed to GameNOW, and a few years after they ceased to exist. Shame, since it was a real classy magazine.

My subscription to EGM just ran out, but I have no interest in what they have to say anymore.

The only regular e-mails that I get are warnings from here.

I used to get GameNOW, until it was stopped and my subscription transferred to Electronic Gaming Monthly, which I now get. My dad gets Official Xbox Magazine. I rarely check my email at all, let alone subscribe to something.

I subscribed to Nintendo Power in early 2004 in order to get the Zelda collection disc. Then I subscribed to Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine in late 2004 because one issue had an MGS3 demo and I'd heard that subscribers got their issues ahead of the newsstands and I had to have it as soon as possible.

I get the Ozzy fan club newsletter and the rock 101 newsletter. For those who don't live in BC it is this site then click live radio to listen through the internet instead of airwaves. (http://www.rock101.com) thats why I love that site.

I bought a couple back issues of Magnet Magazine, an alternative music mag that's cool, but I don't subscribe. I had a Sports Illustrated subscription in 2003 but that got old.

Time Magazine and the Los Angeles Times I get every week. Vanity Fair, once a month. And I used to get the Wall Street Journal until I cancelled that in favor of a monthly subscription to...um...FFXI. Yeah.

I'm pretty sure I can't post what I subscribe to here.

I used to buy magazines, but now I steal them from the library.

Zines of Nickyness = Q, Mad, Debatt and Craccum. Hm.

I suscribe to an online shoe magazine. I love shoes.

08-17-2005, 03:53 PM
Umm.... Shojo Beat and some fashion magazines.
I buy lolita magazines at hot Topic when I have the money too.

I've had a subscription to PSM for years, but I should really get around to cancelling it, seeing as it's turned all dumb and stuff.

reader's digest and Timber Maniacs.

I had a Reader's Digest subscription, but it expired a few months ago... I also used to subscribe to EGM, but I gave up on them... The Brazilian team is just boring and their so-called "news" are always news from two months ago... *sigh*

I subscribe to <i>Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture</i>. That's all for now. *poor*

Game Informer, Shonen Jump, EGM, and OPM are all that I get.

I regularly read Men's Health Magazine, although I haven't subscribed. I get the morning email from TSN.ca (that's Canadian ESPN) every morning, so I've subscribed to that mailing list.

I did subscribe to BMG when it first came out, but gave that up.
