honorbuddy: Yeah I also got GFW magazine free somehow as well (I really don't know how, maybe a friend subscribed me?) and liked it too, maybe even more so than EGM.
GFW was trash. I had a sub and their reviews were god awful. They gave the first Call of Juarez an 8... although I liked it too, it was nowhere near 8 on the critic scale. 7-6.5 at BEST. They also had a HORRIBLE Bioshock review. They talked about...choices or something and rambled on for eternity. They never said one thing about the actual game. They also had captions that made no sense. There was a picture with a bunch of splicer statues stacked up and the caption was " this is why Fort Frolic is our favorite level."... ok? To someone who hadn't played it yet (like many others) it was a huge WTF moment seeing how it was a 2 page long review. They also gave the game a 10/10 and didn't explain why.
Anyways, glad to see EGM is back, it was my favorite.
