ONM Remembered – #292

“That’s the puppy: the e-Reader. Uglier than a giant spider with a Vanessa Feltz head on it, but there you go.”

from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 132 (September 2003)

The good thing about ONM after its post-millennium shake-up was it felt a bit more open to be critical towards products. Oh, sure, games could get a 52% back in the day, but the reviews were so brief and burped out in a minute that they had little time to say what they were really thinking. They sadly didn’t say it about the e-Reader (you need two GBAs just to transfer e-card data to a game?! seriously!?!??!), but given the amount of dodgy tat released for the GBA (and not just the games!) somebody needed to call it out.
