I liked interviews. Today this can be easily done via exchanging emails with the developer, those questions and answers later look like you were talking with that person. This kind of content is good both for newbies and veterans (like me) alike.

I'd love to write something from the point of view of Gwydion or Rosella, you know, grumpy and sarcastic.

Also, Rainbow Brite journatistic corps, assemble!!!

Does anybody know a funny non-spoiling, non-insider dialogue from a game? We could make a screenshot comic out of it. Perhaps Teen Agent.

Maybe we could add some abandonia based Gmod comics.
I think I can have the map ready before the 3rd mag is released.

Let me see...
A little corner for vaporware games.
An article about Modding (see old games on Moddb for example)

And I really like the Box arts (hands article), it would be interesting to see another subject, maybe some old Pixel Art or wallpapers.
Most popular enemy characters or useless characters, it would be fun!
And last but not least a Duke Nukem Vs article, the time has come

Just my two cents.

For pre-2000's titles, you've pretty much got Wolfenstein, Doom and then the Quakes and some of their clones. Not much otherwise IIRC.
Not saying it's impossible, just that very few games really lent themselves to that kind of thing, and ultimately very few players were really interested in it - and in most of those, there were few if any proper tools. Using a hex editor to mod a game stops being fun about 15 minutes into the task.

Also, please suggest industry persons to interview. Just no big names, those are impossible to get to.
