NAG Magazine: January 2014 issue


Holidays have this weird habit of running away from you, distorting time and throwing around days like juggling balls. Of course, smart people plan in advance for this. Smart people would have written this weeks ago and scheduled this post to go online automatically on Monday already. It appears that I’m not a smart person.

Regardless, I’m here to tell you all about the January issue of NAG, which is on shelf right now! Its hot pink cover will scream at you from across the store, which we hope should alleviate the troubles some people have finding it. I could’ve sworn that the idea of doing a pink cover started as a joke, but then we all sort of liked it and before we could change our minds the ink was ordered and things at the printing press were underway. It’s probably for the best.

Inside this lovely pink magazine is a ton of useful information about the recently released PS4 including launch titles, hardware, the fancy new interface, the wonderfully comfortable Dualshock 4 controller, and all sorts of bits and pieces.

We also give you a bit of an education with two mini features – the history of everyone’s favourite moustached mushroom-stomping plumber, and a look at some of the history and future of the beloved Homeworld series.

Then there are games! We get down with LEGO Marvel Superheroes, XCOM: Enemy Within, Need for Speed: Rivals, Super Mario 3D World and more.

On the hardware side we take a look at two new super-fast hard drives from WD, we examine the powerful GIGABYTE GV-N78TGHZ-3GD and new G1.Sniper X87, as well as the ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition. We also get hands-on with the SteelSeries Siberia Elite, the Tritton Kunai and the Cooler Master Nepton 280L.

There’s so much packed into this latest issue of NAG, so be sure to pick up your copy today!

    Apparently pink, or rather ‘cherry blossom red’, is a masculine colour in Japan, hence the pink in Subaru’s STi logo
    So red for boys and pink for girls in a magazine that’s for everyone!

    I am too broke to afford this in my next two or three lifetimes, so winning this would be amazing :D

    Just finished reading the mag. It’s interesting to see the discrepancy between your review score of XCOM:EW and my own, considering we say a lot of the same things.

      Not sure which platform you reviewed on, but I did the X360 version, which is an entirely standalone game. As such, I reviewed it as an all-round slightly improved version of the original, giving it a couple of percent higher score.

      Personally, I find 78 to be a low score for this game, but I guess that just highlights how difficult it is to unify score systems, even within a publication (let alone the whole industry). Your 78 and mine might be very different things, which is why things like Metacritic shouldn’t mean nearly as much as they do

    ps4 amazing….. but cannot hold movies music like the ps3 could o and when you put a dvd or blu-ray you have to update it 2 to 3 times with that said the games look alot better than they did on the ps3……

  • Christopher Lynx

    seems as though the ps4 has some minor setbacks in some certain arears but i dont think anyone would care…its just too damn awesome..(or could it be the novalty?)

  • Thoopid

    We were told Snailboy was included in this edition. Could you please let us know if this is true! We haven’t been out to pick one up yet?

    • NAG Online

      There’s a 98% chance that it might, possibly, maybe exist in the magazine.
