It’s been a while since I made any posts about HardCore Gamer Magazine as it’s been a while since they released an issue. They used to release magazines on a monthly basis but recently decided to switch to a quarterly release schedule, citing the influence of the internet and the waning interest in printed gaming media. I still am going to write arcade articles for them however – in this issue they printed a review of NASCAR Racing that I wrote – it’s been a few months since I wrote it and after re-reading it there are a few things I would change (such as re-using certain words less) but I still think that it’s a fun game that I’ve enjoyed every time I have played it. I would have more reviews in the magazine but so far all I have got is one page per issue. The review is on the very last page of the issue and even has a reference to Arcade Heroes, in case anyone is interested. They offer the magazine as a free download via their website (it’s Volume 4 Issue 1). One reason I bring this up is to point out that not every printed game magazine out there ignores the arcade industry as though it doesn’t exist anymore.
