Its a great magazine and i'm really enjoying it, you can tell just how much hard work and passion has gone into the mag and i think it really has paid off, its opening my eye more to the NES to.
I think having the mag in PDF document format is a great move, one i need to do for my mags next issue. Its a format everyone can download and read through as every computer can read PDF document, so the potential for a big audience is right there, plus the price point is perfect.
What i would recommend is for people to read Nes-Bit on an Ereader, i am reading the mag on the kindle, its perfect for this kind of thing as it can read PDF documents, and it eliminates any eyestrain from staring at a monitor. I read the Sega Saturn magazines on the kindle, its such a perfect format for it, as long as you dont try to compress or convert the PDF into a smaller file or another file, its so crisp and clear, just put PDF as is straight onto the Kindle.
On the whole review score thing, i dont personally like review scores, i think gaming should get away from the review score thing, especially in light of Metacritic, where the mindset is that the end score is the most important thing in the world, review scores are ruining gaming. I didn't add scores to my reviews either, as i thought the review/writing spoke for itself, hence making scores pointless. Whats important should be the review, and the focus on the game and the writing, not the score imho.
