cost and lack of freebies for existing Subscribers

SUB ref number RET 2131 (since nov 2008) I am currently being billed as per my subscription 22.50 (12th October 2018) for 6 issues. I have had no offer as a subscriber for 11 years (!) of one of the free retro controllers, or other offers that I have been seeing in my magazine over the past few mont...

No Christmas joy with covers anymore?

It is a real pity that the cover for the December issue was as festive as as easter egg. Whatever happened to advent calendar covers, glitter, or at the very least some tenuous reference (the 20 years an icon could have been 25 versions of tomb raider)? While sales numbers are up it seems that the l...

Font Sizes in Retro Gamer

Dear all at RG, I have a complete collection of RG, from #1, right up the to recent release, in which there is an article comparing Master system and Game gear titles. I have had great difficulty reading the text in this section, and have discovered that over the past X issues (can't recall exactly ...

Idea For 'The Vault'

I have no affiliation at all with the following website, but the items are definately 'retro' themed. Perhaps you could mention it, as it is not only fun, but (I assume) quite unique. http://www.thrillist.com/links/179655 Yep, all your edible retro characters disected in menu / butcher shop window s...

Re: as posted elsewhere..

ok, this time in the latest issue, Miner willy is in a 'Worms' screenshot.
Has he been in all issues since Retro Gamer was given a new lease of life?

willy watching...

I note that Jet Set Willy has made a 'guest' appearance in several of your screenshots of games throughout the magazines of late. Is this a 'where's Wally? (I mean Willy') game you are playing with us? If so, what is the prize? For example in issue 72, page 105 - screenshot of Gradius as chosen by D...

Keeping the old consoles alive?

As the majority of old games consoles use SCART output, has any of the Retro Gamer posse' experienced the end result using a SCART to HDMI converter? I have a modest collection of items (3DO, CDI, N64, etc etc.) and they all have SCART as the best output option. I understand that there will not be a...

Re: Unofficial feedback for Issue 64

Looks great, it will get a full read in due course (tomorrow, the day after etc.) Coincidentally, I have been in contact with christian radke (Page 58 "a collectors dream"). He had this to say to me this morning... "Oh, interesting! I recently did an interview with Retrogamer for that article and th...

Re: Load 2 :)

I currently only need one binder... R.G. are you going to have them available again soon? If not (and I would prefer to give them the business) I would be happy to take up Oli's offer. Regards, Arthur. Will have to get this, when I have the spare cash :roll: btw, I have binders for sale if you are i...

Load 2 :)

As a regular collector (and subscriber) of R.G. I obviously bought a copy of Load 2 DVD rom to complete my collection, and to protect unnecessary fingering of my beloved collection by friends. I noticed for the first time (perhaps it was in Load 1 also?) that where you would have in the printed maga...

Dreamcast...

..Currently sat under my 50" plasma with a VGA connection. I am surprised at how 'retro' it *technically* is, but how fresh it feels to play. It is the last console I can remember switching on and thinking WOW look at those graphics.... like having a small white PC under the telly. Nothing has stunn...

Retro Survival - survival?

Hi there, firstly - great work on keeping the magazine fresh and being willing to constantly change. It is nice to see that you are not going to simply rest on your laurels; a downfall of many a publication. Now, on to my questions proper. I recently read (ok, re-read) about the existance of 'Retro ...
