#162 – PSM Magazine

with 15 comments

Yeah, almost ten years. I still find that crazy, but my math is pretty accurate. Bought my first issue of the gaming PSM magazine in the summer of 1997 (it had an illustration of the cast of Final Fantasy VII on the cover), and then I proceeded to subscribe starting with issue 2. I never stopped, continuing to get the mag all throughout high school and college. Until now. Well, one reason is that the magazine now spends a great deal of time talking about the Playstation 3, a system I’ll never own because I’d much rather spend $600 on other things. And then I have the Internet at my disposal, where with two clicks I can find out what is happening with any game at any given time. And my Internet wears a hat. Does yours?

Also, yours truly gets a nice mention at the end of this interview with Sandra McDonald. Check it out!

  1. Wow! You’re a great new artist, who knew?

    And, no, my computer does not wear a hat. But it does have a little doggie laying on it with a bone in its mouth.

    Hope you got a good night’s sleep last night!

  2. Hee, told you nice things were said of me!

    What kind of little doggie? I hope it’s not a poodle. :/

    And thanks. I got a decent night’s amount of sleep.

  3. My internet does not wear a hat. Bit it does have a picture of me giving the “Shocker” sign.

  4. Your Internet is a dirty, dirty beast, TK.

  5. It kind of looks like a beagle, which is nice because one of my dogs kind of looks like a beagle plus Snoopy has been one of my favs since I was a young chickie.

  6. Ah, okay. Beagles are fine by me. I’m a Snoopy fan myself, though I feel like, sometimes, Charlie Brown abuses that dog. That’s why I smile every time when he misses kicking the football. That’s what happens to people that forget to feed their dogs!

  7. You tickled her!!! Good Work. My Internet wears no hat, but must wear weights, because its so sloooooooooooooow.

  8. Hee, I am impressed that I can tickle someone via the Internet. And yes, your Internet needs to put the dumbbells down and toss back a few Red Bulls. Then you’ll be moving with ease.

  9. But teh intarwebz doesn’t provide the kind of access and commentary that PSM can, and will continue to do, including coverage of what can still tickle your PS2 fancy. There’s hope yet.

  10. Heh, yeah I fully understand that PSM will be covering PS2 games so long as they make them. I’m positive you and the other staff members will do a bangup job. I kept my subscription because I knew the attention to details–and to the readers–was always important. Bah, now I might have subscribe again. You guys are the most affordable of the bunch.

  11. That’s the spirit… Subscribe — we’re the cheapest!
