Blimey! My Magazine Is Talking To Me!
The latter is really making full use of the possibilities offered by the digital format, with photo slideshows within articles, 360 rotating views as well as video. Great stuff but WI326 (December 2014) has now gone further with sound!
The Rules Showcase with Simon Miller's new Ancients rules includes a short video interview (alongside the article text) with the man himself, which is really interesting as much more can be covered by the spoken word than the written one.
Less cool was the battle sound effects that burst into life with the Ligny article which scared the life out of SWMBO as I was quietly reading my e-magazine when the Napoleonic Wars erupted from my iPad whilst she was watching Eastenders!
Obviously early days with WI testing what they can do with the opportunities offered digitally, but hopefully they rein in some of the out of the box thinking or soon it'll be "my magazine is singing to me!" :-)
