Speaking of name changes, Famitsu Cube + Advance finally switches to Famitsu DS (+ Cube + Advance) this month.
Up until now, the magazine was basically like a watered down Dengeki G'z and it covered a lot of gal games.
Though it covered a lot of gal games, I think it still was the closest thing to a pure gamer's magazine (stuff like Continue notwithstanding). After all, it was the mag with a NeoGeoFreak section in it at times... On the other hand, the moe phenomenon is even affecting "regular" publications now. For instance, FamitsuPS2, which gained back readers under Aizawa's management by targeting core gamers instead of casual players, is now focusing on its "Characters" section to pursue its recoveryin sales. And this "Characters" section is truely what could be described as G'z lite. They are apparently going to push it more and more in the next few months.
By the way Prof, what's your opinion on Continue? I used to see it as rather vapid, but the more I understand japanese, the more I appreciate it (especially the latest issue).
NOW IS TIME TO THE 68000 Z80 AND SH-2 HEART ON FIRE !!
