Established in June 2007 by David Scammell, D+PAD Magazine began as an independent British-based PDF gaming magazine offering print-quality copy and design in one free and easy download. In 2009, D+PAD was acquired by GamerZines, the publishers of several free PDF games magazines. D+PAD now offers their magazines for free download, while cutting its own way in independent editorial on the site, offering the best of both worlds.
Our team are knowledgeable and passionate gamers, with a history that stretches from the halcyon of the Atari 2600, through the classic console-wars of the mid-90s (because X360 vs PS3 has nothing on the SNES vs Mega Drive playground battles!) right up to the Eyepets, Modern Warfares and Kinect’s of today.
D+PAD places great emphasis on the written word’s ability to explain what makes a certain game – and gaming in general – so vital.
After a short hiatus D+PAD is slowly gathering momentum again – in 2010 we hope to bring you news on a more regular basis, features exclusive to the site, as well as reviews of all the games that could come to define the next decade: Final Fantasy 13, God Of War 3, Bayonetta, Halo: Reach and loads of things in between. We’ve plans for a redesign of the site later in the year, so let us know what you’d like to see.
Welcome on board!
- The D+PAD Team.
