Foul - Videogame Subculture
[ Publisher: Multimedia Empire | Price: $3.95 | Format: Multi Console ]
Today we're taking a look at Foul, a terrible, horrible magazine from the dawn of the 21st century. Filled with cheap laughs and poorly-written reviews, this short-lived magazine always thought it was funnier than it was. Worst of all, it went out of its way to be offensive. Find out why this plan failed in today's episode of Foul.



Excerpt: Targeting the video game subculture, Foul's goal was to offend somebody. Anybody. The amateurish articles were littered with the type of politically incorrect jokes and insults you would expect from a magazine named Foul. The problem is that none of the editors were particularly good at following through with their childish ideas. What we're left with are lame stabs at comedy that consist of trying to get laid at E3 or dressing game characters up as women or a story about leaving your husband for a PlayStation 2.

On Tomorrow's Episode: Come back tomorrow when we'll take a look at Mega Play, a magazine dedicated to the Sega Genesis, Master System and Game Gear. Find out what happens on Wednesday's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas. Still want more? Don't forget to check out last year's 29 Questionable Power-Ups of Christmas.
