Shooting Gameside is a Magazine About Shooters

Shooting Gameside is the magazine I never thought I'd see; a magazine that's all shooters all the time. This would most likely never get published in the U.S. Fortunately, Japan has a bigger niche population of shooter fans, so Shooting Gameside can get stacked on newsstands next to Famitsu. It's being released in Japan this weekend and is available for pre-order on NCSX right now. If I could make my own magazine, Shooting Gameside would probably be it.

According to the NCSX listing, Shooting Gameside Vol. 1 will have articles on Battle Garegga, Darius burst: Another Chronicle, Do Don Pachi Daifukkatsu, Senko no Ronde Duo, Space Invaders: Infinity Gene, and a 10-page feature on developer Eighting/Razing. This magazine makes me wish my Japanese was better so I could read it, but I'm about to order this just on principle. Plus, it's a magazine with a niche audience, so who knows how many copies they actually printed. At least I can look at the pictures of shooters I wish I was playing.

Shooting Gameside: All shooters all the time.
