I am thinking about subscribing to your magazine and was wondering if the value of the disc's content was worth the extra ten dollars.

I used to be a subscriber to PC Gamer and never really cared for the disc as it seemed to be just game demos. What kind of software is included on the disc and some input from subscribers as to the value (not monetary of course) it adds would be greatly appreciated.

I don't get the disc as all it holds are easily obtainable free downloads and podcasts. It's nice to have the one disc having it all type thing, but you certainly don't need 12-13 of them a year as much of the content on the disc is simply recycled month to month.

And yes, they even put game demo's on them on occasion.

But for me, there wasn't anything special enough about having the disc's during my first subscription to warrant the extra money on my following ones. I still buy a magazine off the stand every now and then when my sub runs out and before I can get it going again. The disc's still have the same old shit on them.

I never used them either. I have access to the web 24/7 and don't care much for CD/DVD media.


Save your money or use it to purchase 24 issues without the CDs!
