I just realised that this month's issue uses the "a brush with greatness" pun twice: once on the cover for the Epic Mickey preview, and then again for the Art Academy review.

Latest issue arrived today. There's a new editor, and two new Australian staff writers, one of which wrote a review and a few features. Hopefully with these Australian writers the magazine can go 100% Australian.

It says the Managing Editor this time is Damian Francis, but the editorial was written by 'The ONM team', so maybe he's just temporary.

Is the December issue out yet? Just that my newsagent hasn't got it yet, and I haven't seen hair nor hide of it on the net.

Checked the official site, but that's still showing the HGSS issue as the latest..

The latest issue of ONM came out on the 8th this month, so you should be able to find it pretty easily. Sonic is on the cover and the free gift is a 2011 Nintendo calendar.

Can't believe the ONM website is still showing the HGSS issue - their website is a major disappointment. Not sure why they even go to the trouble of featuring the URL on their covers.

Well I guess been getting tired with the magazine since Serrels left, and seriously, look at that cover. No magazine that puts that much 'effort' into making their covers look good deserves my money.

I just noticed, with the Goldeneye 007 Wii review, there's a snapshot of the reviewer eliminating Daisy-Fan, one of the best players :P

I have noticed that the magazine has been going through editors like crazy, but I haven't really noticed a decline in the magazine quality. I am still enjoying reading it and looking forward to it every month, and to me the most important thing about a magazine isn't the appearance, it is how much I enjoy it.

Bitch please. Australian English is highly based on British English motherf*cker. And if you don't like ONM and their magazine covers then go and read GameInformer or OPN AU, pretty boy.

Easy tiger! I'm pretty sure AyJay was just referring to the fact that some of the content in the Australian ONM is lifted directly from the UK ONM.

Two points
A. no need to use that kind of language around here to attack another member, that was completely unprovoked and not called for. Enjoy your 24 hour ban for that.

B. he wasn't talking about the vocabulary being used, more that the articles are just taken from the UK magazine. Like the old Aus Cube magazine the mag has really just become the UK OMN mag with the worlds Australian put on the cover. So its not really Australian content, its just the UK stuff which does get annoying with random references here and there that some Aussies may not pick up on.

First issue picked up in a long time, glad to see they are still doing the Retro game thing Mark bought in, Reviews seem abit out of date though, I'm sure a few of these games have been out for 2 months or so which given how hard some Wii and DS games can be to find after launch is abit annoying, surely the point is to hype these games up so people know about them prior to launch and know if they should spend their money before the game is out or as the game comes out.

Need to read more of the Game Boy section to see what I can whine about for them missing :D
