Here it is. The double spread advert you have been waiting for. The October 2011 edition. Enjoy... oh and be nice to anyone new who comes to this lovely place after seeing the ad. Remember the more the merrier.

This makes me happy...

Good information, great imagery, and hopefully it will catch the eyes of many a gamer.

Must of cost a fortune xD

it does come under fair dealing where you are allowed to copy/scan an article or 5% of a journal (whichever is less), under UK law anyway;)

Oooooh that's a sweet ad, nice one! :)

If I was going to be REALLY picky... which I'm not, but you know - if I WAS. I'd say they probably missed a comma between "ballistics" and "bullet penetration" :D lol. I know, I'm sorry! :)

Pretty epic, although I can't remember the last time I found anything worth reading in a games magazine.

Yeah I don't see the point anymore. But then again if it was up to me I'd get rid of physical books, paper and physical mail as well. It's coming, if ever so slowly.

Ad is very pretty but yeah, the missing comma is anoying me. :p

Have to agree especially with PC Gamer. After trawling through 3 long reviews of various shyte MMOs leaving me close to boredom death I turned the page to see the RO2 Ad. It made that month's purchase worthwhile. There's nothing else in it worth reading this month so what's new. Just a bunch of kids swearing a lot and writing purile content.

I don't touch mainstream gaming mags - but Edge is still quite good :) I read it more for the interviews and retro articles though, and maybe the previews - not so much the reviews.

Also, I'd hate to see physical books - i.e. novels and such - disappear completely. That's a horrible - and not 100% considered action :) I have a gorgeous "coffee table" book full of photos from the Hubble space telescope, and those would not work on crappy little readers. Having the book is also far better than looking at them on a big-screen TV - they're much more vivid and detailed than your average 1080p panel can manage :)

iPads and Kindles might be nice for traveling, but real books still have their place at home for some of us :) I'll always prefer reading a real novel over sliding my finger on a glass display!
