ONM Remembered – #46


from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 94 (July 2000)

God, it’s like the barest ad there is. No gripping imagery, no dumb jokes… it barely even has a sales pitch! It’s not even “buy Perfect Dark because it’s a good game, probably”, it’s “buy Perfect Dark because we’re throwing prizes around like we don’t give a crap.”
It’s boring and inoffensive enough… until you see that that they just had to throw in a knob joke.

“You’ll go blind”, it says, next to a suggestive image of a hand gripping a joystick.
You’d think the magazine had a quota for dick jokes or something.

    I find it hilarious that they put the masturbation joke next to a logo for Virgin Megastores.
