Future Publishing is wondering why its rival, Imagine Publishing, has not released circulation figures since launching Total PC Gaming in 2007. As you do.
Speaking in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, James Binns was curious as to why the publisher had yet to reveal an ABC for the title.
“What’s interesting in the PC market is we had a competitor launch that hasn’t revealed ABCs yet,” said Binns.
“Total PC Gaming has talked up quite a big talk and they’re 16 issues in now and haven’t owned up to their copy sales. If it was still 16 issues in and I was still hiding – it’s weird for them to boast so much and then show so little,” he added.
Imagine’s Managing Director Damian Butt rebutted, saying the reason why an official figure hasn’t been released was that the magazine simply wasn’t established enough yet.
“We would always be at a massive competitive disadvantage against those rival magazines that have had years to build up subs and export sales”, he said.
“Which as you can see from the ABCs for PC Gamer and PC Zone are quite considerable.”

UK mag PC Gamer has published the first UK review of EA’s Christmas mega-risk, Spore.
It’s not what you’d think, either. The mag’s given it 91 percent, questioning a “completely unacceptable” lack of auto-save and saying the game’s “biggest, dumbest and most easily fixable flaw” is the inability to back out of wars you accidentally stumble into in the latter stages of play.
The piece does, however, grant that Spore’s “beautiful,” “hilarious” and “annoyingly adorable.” Did you know there’s an AT-AT in it? We didn’t.
We’re sure someone will scan the review before too long.

PC Gamer US has shown it’ll have the first look at Crysis Warhead in next issue, due out June 24.
“This announcement answers a lot of questions,” says the mag, “like why did Crytek cancel plans for a Crysis 1.3 patch (’cause they’re too busy building an awesome new game!) – but asks so many more: Will Warhead be a PC exclusive? Will it run better in DirectX 9 mode? All the answers, plus amazing screenshots and an interview with Crytek’s Cevat Yerli.”

According to this massively story, the current issue of PC Gamer offers readers a free Age of Conan item.
Apparently, the freebie’s called the Totem of Origins, and lets the player teleport back to their home city once every 24 hours.
Doesn’t make your tits bigger though, does it? We assume this is US-only. More through the link.
