Re: Paid for 'free gifts'

Yeah no surprise the sheep on here just love paying an extra quid for a CD they admit they don't even play. You literally can't make this stuff up. No opinion about the lower quality paper and how the mag is a shadow of its former self. Most people on here are subscribers I believe. You don't like ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 192

I'm surprised the subscriber covers are still going given how much the negative feedback outweighs the positive on this forum. I much prefer (and love) the newsstand cover again this month: https://twitter.com/RetroGamer_Mag/status/1107617369604739072 (though the first replier to that Tweet prefers...

Re: Subs Department Epic Failure

I've got a personalized postcard informing me that my subscription is about to end. That is like a joke really. Before that there was a sealed mail with roughly the same information. I bet both of those took a couple of weeks to arrive and yet here I am still waiting for 188 and 191 to materialize....

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 192

I hate the subscriber cover. They've been terrible for months and months now. They look a complete afterthought like yeah just throw any old crap on there. I'd rather have the paid cover. The Gods one last month was one of the alltime best covers in my opinion - I've been collecting since around is...

Nope. It's reputation is entirely deserved.
This might just be your part of the world, where I'm from, the Spectrum and Amstrad had similar reputations, neither was considered better than the other - and the C64 was thought of well above them.

Re: Subs Department Epic Failure

So I got a "time to renew your sub" mail. Looking up my user at the web site only shows an EDGE sub. Cue mail to subs. *Crickets* So it's just an automated mailing system without anyone really reading the mail? I've got an even better one now - I contacted subs twice, and both times told them I had...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 191

Can someone post a photo of the subs cover? I thought the retail cover looked superb (saw it on facebook). There's a decent photo of it on this ebay auction: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Retro-Gamer-Issue-191-The-Making-of-Gods-MINT-Brand-new-condition/223412777994 Cool thanks for that! Looks awesome...

Re: Thank you so much for your great magazine!...

Yeah, hope that the RG team know how much the mag means to a lot of us. To people like myself, who grew up with the 80s/90s mag culture, it is so awesome to have something like RG keeping that flame burning. Gaming just isn't the same without it. With the 200th issue coming up this year maybe it sho...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 190

I won't buy the magazine again. I've been getting my 7 and 9 year old into retro gaming and I first bought Retro Gamer at their request. I haven't read every article but what I have read has been a safe read. Then my daughter asks why an article "has so many bad words?" There are THREE f-bombs in a...

Re: cost and lack of freebies for existing Subscribers

For me the reward is getting a fantastic mag each month that contains content not available anywhere else. I don't care about getting a free third party controller, thats insignificant compared to getting a mag that is the last of its kind. Whenever you re-subscribe you can take advantage of discoun...

Re: Tracking lateness

I never received issues 187, 188, or 189. I've been a subscriber, based in upstate NY, for nearly 10 years now. I haven't had a problem like this before. Maybe a few late issues, and a missing issue a few years ago, but this worries me! Since I probably won't be receiving the Subscriber editions ca...
