New magazine feature?

Here's a topic on onm where they want something like game or lame (if you want to know what that it is then click the link) from nom. 84 people have signed the petition and 139 out of 162 people have said it would be a good idea on the poll. So I was wondering if the NGamer staff think this might be a good idea for NGamer?

I remember that... :)
It'd be better than Reader Cover of the Month, that's for sure. Probably.

Didn't NGamer/ NGC used to do this once upon a time? Some of the entries were worth a giggle, certainly a better concept than cover of the month. :)

Yea, most of the covers are done in Paint and makes me cringe. I did one though, it turned out preety well, I made it in Photoshop! Either Issue 32 or 33, I think.

A pretty standard feature of every games mag since the dawn of time, I reckon. Did one called 'It Should Be A Game' back in the old Official PlayStation Magazine. But there's a reason for this - tis a good feature. Reader covers of the month having more or less dried up, we could certainly bring it back. I'll sort out a topic thread so you mob can kick it off.

Should bring back I'm the Best. :o

Or atleast just a competition based on the Cosplay part of the old ITB. It could replace the 20 Nintendo Happenings. >_>
What would Captain Black do?

Yes!

Does anyone remember the Red Pikmin cosplay photograph and the smartarse caption that was printed beneath it? Had me in stitches for weeks! :lol:

I remember that! Does anyone remember which issue it was in?

I wouldn't mind Grintendo back in, it was hilariously good at points, especially in the later issues with the Pikmin where the yellow Pikmin's fate was decided on the quality of the reader jokes...

Look NGamer, if you are trying to make me leave by annoying me, I won't. I swear I won't leave until you confess. Then I'll leave and never come back.

And just how are we annoying you, oh disgruntled one. A sad reader makes for a sad writer, so lets try and rectify the situation...

You guys at Ngamer keep editing my posts. I was first normaly(ish) commenting on the idea and then someone edited it to say "it's just a lie, look at me, look at me..."

I edited it back and it then said "look at me the troll!" or something rather about a troll.

So who else but mods can edit posts to remove swears etc.? NGamer staff.

i remember you all forcing geraint through catflaps to try and be like samus's morphball, or him pulling a tom clancy to try and avoid being the one to do he tea run and falling and snapping his leg in half, floowed by a short, sharp
"mine will be a white with 2 sugars then please geraint"
bloody hilarious :lol: Geraint always ended up dead or gravely injured, made me feel sorry for the guy.
