    How about a preview section of all the games which are to be relesed later such as fftactics ???
    maby even a release date date if possible.

    example

    Megaman Battle Network 2 Preview

    Blah blah (u know talk about what the game should be like and what is expected)

    Release date: TBC

    Yeah but it will help make the magazine bigger.
    Think about it, there are tons of gba forums yet KiVan and co started GBAtemp which after time has turned out to be a huge success. What makes you think adding this feature won't help the magazine and the forum in any way ???

    It sounds like a great idea but I fear that we will just be stealing off pocket.ign.com or gbacentral.net or any GBA site. It would be impossible for us to get exclusives on games.

    Actually, I found it's gameplay to be far superior to the first one, even if the story was a bit stretched. And we can't comment on the third until we see it in English. This is a matter of opinion, though, rather than a formal preview.

    Not only are previews hard to obtain (since, say, Gamespot gets games LONG before the rest of us, and we can't), but they have to be objective. We write our reviews from the heart, so they can't be objective. Objective, neutral writing is VERY hard to do in comparison. So, I can't see us doing a preview section. Sorry.

    -Tempest out.-
