    Okay so I thought that it would be a good idea if Gbatemp has Virtual magazine! Like the way game informer is formatted. This is how I see it. A few members are elected to be the magazine editors. The edit it and stuff. Them some other members are the reviewers. They make a review of the game and rate it from a rating system (stars, numbers, ect...) They add pictures and stuff of the game. Then it is made into a ebook and published on a ebook publishing website. The reviews should somewhat look like this: [attachment=680:IMG_08831.JPG]

    And there can be adds in the ebooks to. Like websites homebrew and stuff (self stuff).

    IT HAS TO BE VIEWABLE ON A IPOD TOUCH/IPAD/IPHONE/PC/EREADERS/ect...


    Good idea? You can post some of your idea to make it awesome.


    EDIT: It will come out once a month. And it has to be free.

    I love this idea and hope it becomes a reality. It will also serve another purpose, getting the GBAtemp name out there more so than it is now. Good luck and I look forward to see where this idea goes. I can see it now...reading gbatemp ebook on my 3DS...good stuff! :biggrin:

    Tagzard, I see you live in Chicago. I used to live in Downers Grove and at one time in Countryside. I went to Lyons Township High School. Where exactly are you located? Go Sox!!

    I can't download the attachment for some reason. Upload it to the Gallery or something.

    I want to erm... "view" this "fine production".

    Want!

    Just one stipulation: there has to be a Temper of the Month column.
    And it has to be viewable on the DS AND PC, so maybe an eBook format and a PDF?

    Hehe, lied about the 1 stipulation.

    EDIT: Guild, that might be because no one knows what you're talking about, there's no attachment in any post.

    I like the idea. Instead of browsing the forums endlessly for the information about games and homebrew we could include it in the magazine for better compact viewing. :D
    But please not just iOS. :(

    Wait, it's just a picture of an existing gaming magazine, not like a rough draft of this one?

    Good luck getting a team of graphic designers, editors, and writers. I'm sure that'll be possible.

    This is a idea. Someone wil feed off of it. Let me draw a draft of what the REVIEW part should look like. I have no idea what the other parts should look like.

    Honestly, I wouldn't want to see this. What's the point of the mobile site, then?

    I was thinking for off-line viewing/other devices can read them.

    In this day and age when 3G and 4G, as well as free Wi-Fi spans across the majority of the globe, off-line reading is kind of moot. It's a noble effort... I just don't really see it happening.

    Sorry!

    Then explain to me "why we have a podcast? Can't we just use the news forum" That is how I see your argument.

    The podcast just repeats the news forum. There is no need for it. However, there is (some) demand for it.

    If this can rack up some demand, I see no reason why it wouldn't be successful. I just wouldn't use it. One out of many won't really affect anything.
