Wow, actually some interesting articles in Pain. The news section with all the lame Hugi dissing was a bit lousy though.

PAiN in your eyes!

now this is how a diskmag should be done.

nice articles & interviews ..
so nice to still have a mag feeling..

oh please, next time, no stupid almost naked woman picture at the beginning, it somehow ruins the image of the scene imo .. (though it would probably please stefan)

hugi dissing in the news section is kind of running gag in pain ;-) for a reference just read the old pains..

whatever dissing means anyways ;-) it's of course just kind of joke. not meant seriously, regular pain reader know it.

thumps up. the music is boring. the font is pain in my eyes (white on black). but the articles and interviews are good. btw: monostep.org is not a "demoo competition" site ;)

Rumors and dissing, these things feed the demoscene. Go on!

Good articles and all.. quite a nice read.

first time I ever read a diskmag. Interesting read, fun articles. Makes me wish even more I could be part of the scene and the parties, but I'm stuck in the US.

yep it's all good

btw: the outro-textures are messed up and flipped (aaaarg!).. :(
i hope there will be an update..

Good mag. I had the music on loop even when I wasn't reading it! Good articles, and lots of demo and party reviews (note to Hugi: you need more new-release reviews!). I wish there were more interviews of PC groups/sceners. At least there weren't (as many) "Amiga rulez, PC suxx!" articles in a PC mag this time. :) The "jobs" article was a funny diversion. The sound effects are a bit loud compared to the music. The load pic was nice; the title pic was a bit cheezy, but not gratuitous or offensive or anything.

(and guys, if you need more votes, just ask for them on ojuice when you're about to release a new issue! People like me are gonna forget otherwise)

P.S. to seannyb: "but I'm stuck in the US" is no f**king excuse.

laughed my ass off while reading one of the articles. :)

I've spend 30 minutes on the latest Hugi issue, but several HOURS on this one. Many interesting articles here, nice background music and graphics, only the font looks a bit cheap, but so what. Great mag!

"oh please, next time, no stupid almost naked woman picture at the beginning, it somehow ruins the image of the scene imo .. (though it would probably please stefan)" you mean i dont fit into the gayscene? ;/

nosfe, i think i have an idea of wich one ;-D

Very nice articles!
And the music simply rulez. It's not too distracting but still very nice. I often have it on loop while working.

again a nice work from the staff and unlock! rulas muchas!
and long life to the oldstyled news, rumors&dissing :) online news are so boring.

btw, i've heard a rumor that MFX will offer some booze to calodox at boozembly and that calodox will offer some booze at buenzli and that ex-Haujobb will offer some booze at evoke and that MFX will offer... oh, everything is turning and turning again :)

more seriously: doing a diskmag is a hell of work. finding people to write some stuff is a real sadomasochist porn movie. so, if you love PAiN, support it with your party reports, reviews, tutorials, interviews or other egocentric dreams. go.go.go! :)

pain proves one again that it's the DAMN BEST pc diskmag of today. i leeched it already when i was on UC and i had real fun reading it. expect some articles from me soon, especially a counteraction to zito's article about the "death of the ascii scene".
rulez added on the 2002-07-22 18:11:40 by dipswitch dipswitch
it's not a rumour that mfx will offer booze to people at boozembly. it will happen. there will be about 50 litres of potemkin this year...
added on the 2002-07-22 18:24:00 by nosfe nosfe
wow... i thought one bottle of vodka costs about 50€ in finland... or is potemkin no vodka ? when not, what then ?
added on the 2002-07-22 18:32:54 by dipswitch dipswitch
loved the 'jobs' article ;)

nosfe: the crowd believes in your booze. you are our spiritual leader :)
added on the 2002-07-22 19:11:46 by fred fred
still the best.
rulez added on the 2002-07-22 22:27:30 by alkama alkama
potemkin is the mfx wine, with something like 10-20% of alcohol. we also have mfx molotov, which has 85-95% of alcohol. theres also a watered down vodka version of molotov with 40% of alcohol.

PAiN is my favorite PC diskmag for sure.
didnt read whole issue yet but it seems to be quite small anyway.. and news article is actually tiny considering how much is hapening in nowadays scene.

i think it could be still much much better :)

added on the 2002-07-23 13:14:24 by raver raver
hey raver, help us support us. the mag is currently a - let's say .. 4 man show :-)
added on the 2002-07-23 21:47:09 by unlock unlock

i will love to do that after PHAT2!
also new Blackmarket should be finished...

and hey, 4 men can still have something to show ;)

anyway, as PAiN is #1 PC diskmag anyway, i shouldnt spare my thumb...

I read it and I have to say it contains some good articles, definetely many more than Hugi 25... and I'm glad to see Pain back to a sensible size :)
rulez added on the 2002-07-25 23:49:11 by exocet exocet
a good issue with fun party reports
good interface, useful to use
clean music and endpart
sad, only few voters and few funny messages
all is done on the net for now ...
