5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps even a better format than the website? April 6, 2009
While most know it as the the home of the humorous cartoon Zero Punctuation, anyone who reads the site regularly knows that The Escapist has always presented itself as more of an online magazine. Articles are presented in an issue-based format with a theme, weekly features and letters to the editors. The Escapist isn't meant to be an all-encompassing site or up-to-the-minute blog, but it is meant to cover a few major topics during the week. Think something closer to Newsweek rather than the New York Times. Interestingly, by packing all the print content into one weekly release, the Kindle version makes more sense of The Escapist's "issue" format than even the website. It's worth a try if you'd prefer to read some decent articles about gaming that aren't just the latest rumors and gossip.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Kind of Escapism April 14, 2010
As an avid gamer and reader, I'm sometimes hit hard by the lack of insightful, well-written articles in the video game area of our culture. There are few writers and fewer websites that often the kind of content I'm looking for. The Escapist is one of them. Some argue that I could read this stuff on the web for free and that is true, but there is something deeply satisfying about reading articles about games I love(d) in bed, outside, on my lunch break AWAY from my computer. Whatever that feeling is, The Escapist is something I look forward to every week and I might die without.

I actually wish it was more than $3/month so I could feel like I was giving [..] the money they deserved.

This is the only magazine you will ever need if you consider yourself a gamer. Look no further! Looks perfect on Kindle and the price is right. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars kindle November 13, 2011
By Rando
I wish these kindle edition publications could be read on my laptop.
With my basic kindle reader I don't get the magazine in color.
And I really like reading on the laptop.
