I bought your Nov. Dec. issue of the the Escape for the first time and it really surprised me! It truly is an ezine and the magazine of the new millenium. i enjoyed viewing those gameplay vids. Your integration of all the media is well crafted.
Giving up free stuffs like mp3 and the benchmark tool is also a good marketing strategy. Unfortunately, i'm from Dagupan City, Pangasinan and i can't find a copy of your issue here. Please inform me if you have any authorized dealer here in my place. I just can't go to manila just to get a copy. Anyways, you are the best MultiMedia Zine(MMZ) ever. If i'm going to rate you guys from 1 to 10, i'll give you 11!
However, i could have gave you 15 if you included some more links to the web. I suggest to have your ezine a Links Section wherein the readers can find live links to the web. considering that your cd-rom runs on a browser, it would be easy for readers to just go to site that is featured on your 'zine by just clicking the links that is in your 'zine. I think "Link Line" is a nice name for your would-be link section. How's that? Listing about 5 to 20 links relating to some particulars will make readers crave for the net(and will treasure your 'zine too). About the free apps, that's great. giving 2 to 3 freeby apps every issue is fair enough. i was expecting for a free game (well, a pc gamer's dream) even if it's just as little as Pong. But how about a demo version on any game that you review? Also the price is fair enough( please dont't increase!) but the lower, the better.
Keep up that very good work guys. Hope i didn't get you bored.
