* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The "Classified" cheat code section originally was printed to look like a manila folder, as though one were being given dangerous secrets. After the redesign of the magazine in issue 195, Classified was changed to a black background, which displeased many fans. Luckily, the manila background returned when the Virtual Console debuted on the Wii, to give readers a bit of nostalgia.

Previously four or five reviewers would each review the same game, and each could award multiple scores for different aspects of the game. Back then, the score system was also on a five star total rating. Midway through the magazine's run this was changed to 10 point system, then the multiple reviewers and scores for a single game was scrapped in favor of one reviewer for each game (excepting really high-profile titles). Rather than being viewed as dumbing the reviews down, readers preferred the new version because it let individual reviews write longer detailed pieces rather than brief crammed blurbs.

* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Chris Shepperd. Though frequently depicted as the ButtMonkey of the staff, to the point that a joke daily schedule listed finding new days to deal him bodily harm, Slate was popular enough for fans that one even sent a collage of every picture of Chris in the mag for the past twenty issues. He was both flattered and a little scared by the gesture.
