as a kid, i obsessively pored over various video game magazines. there's some useful info in there, sure, but mostly i just loved the artwork-- the various styles i wouldn't otherwise be exposed to. worlds i'd never even set foot in (games i'd never play), but the pretty pictures i could glean & cop & add to my brain bank. even in my sad old age, i still pick up said magazines, much to the chagrin of whomever is unwise enough to let me wonder off in the grocery store. anyway, goodtimes. and yah, i've yet to actually play this here RPG; they're not really my thing, but the story is still aces.
