GTA V RESIDENT EVIL 6 HALO 4 TRANSFORMERS Issue 89 September EXCLUSIVE COVER 1 OF 5: SALVADOR LUCASARTS STRIKES BACK: THE EXCLUSIVE INSIDE STORY 9000 Issue 89 September INSIDE GUN BUYING THINKING WITH PORTALS THE FUTURE OF SWEARING F1 GOES KARTING 9000 Issue 89 September Welcome... To a special, robot-crafted issue of OXM Helloooo, reader! I m a CL4P-TP steward bot, but you can call me Claptrap! Or, that annoying android who won t leave me alone! Or, go away! Lord knows almost everybody else does. Anyway, the fine folks at OXM have allowed me to guest edit this issue. Unfortunately, they rejected my first two layout pitches (which have henceforth become known as the Let s Just Put Boobies On Each Page and Okay Well What About Wangs Instead pitches, respectively), and threatened to escort me out of the building when I formulated my world-famous third layout pitch: Wait I ve Got It Wangs AND Boobies Where s Everybody Going? Instead, you ll find me chiming in every few pages, sharing nuggets of (sadly wangunrelated) wisdom while trying to underhandedly sell you on the new game I m starring in. So, off we go! Turn the page and let your epic, boobie-free journey commence! The team and how they spent the month Did you get a golden cover? Editor Jon Hicks Gamertag: OXM Jonty T: E: Deputy Editor Mike Channell Gamertag: OXM MightySeven T: E: Staff Writer Jon Log Blyth Gamertag: OXM Log T: E: Staff Writer Matt Lees Gamertag: OXM JamSponge T: E: Won t stop playing Spelunky despite being very bad at it. This has, for one month only, meant we ve surpassed neighbours Total Film as the sweariest mag in the office. Announced he s leaving OXM to make videos on the internet. Farewell Mike we ll miss you, although the mess under your desk will outlast us all. Finally started playing Portal 2 co-op a mere 18 months after everybody else. Hopes to one day try this Halo game everybody has talked about. Dedicated himself to single-handedly making Awesomenauts popular. Started with videos, but has threatened to step up to cosplay. Online Editor Edwin Evans-Thirlwell Gamertag: OXM ETboy Our resident plutocrat kept claiming illness so he could work from home, which seemed plausible until we realised that the grouse season is just starting. Writer Andy Farrant Gamertag: Farrantula Was dragged back into battle in the nightmarish world of Spec Ops. Subsequently suffered a Rambo-style breakdown and destroyed Riften. Writer Will Porter Gamertag: Batsphinx Continues to drop hints about his very important work on really big games. We suspect this means he s just building something ridiculous in Minecraft. Writer Rich McCormick Gamertag: richmcc Became irrationally self-confident after winning a DoTA 2 match and signed up for a 100km charity walk. Now won t play anything harder than King Kong. If your copy of OXM has a golden Claptrap cover, you ve just won a TV and autographed copy of Borderlands 2!
