Save the dinosaurs, get free gaming mags

The magazine publishing industry needs your help. Actually, it doesn't -- it needs you to forget that video game news is not readily available and more current on the internet. It also needs you to muster up that nostalgia of many years of page flipping and watching those irritating little papers fall all around you. Oh, and remember that one time where they included that horribly stiff semi-cardboard advertisement halfway into the magazine so that it was almost impossible to flip through?  Those were the days, boys!

Anyway, the point is that they are struggling and need to show readership to their advertisers, even if they have to ship you the damn magazine for free, or someone with lots of white hair will take all of their toys away. We don't know that for a fact, though. Maybe they're just generous or have more money than, say, the guys that patented secure 4-roll toilet paper dispensers in public bathrooms. Those guys are next-gen; always thinking ahead of the next poop.

The point is, you can now get Games for Windows magazine for a year for free. Apparently, there's more than Warcraft out there and they have a magazine about it. Who knew?
