Re: Cancel Subscription

I've been getting RG since issue 35 or thereabouts and haven't ever had a problem with captions not being readable - time to get your eyes checked out for macular degeneration

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 193

I still love the magazine and have an active subscription, I've been going through really bad times at home, so have lost the passion for coming and discussing stuff on the forum. Most of my online discussion about gaming these days happens on Facebook, the immediacy of it is really good, although t...

Re: Iain Lee

Thats great - originally Iain Lee didn't sit that well with me for some reason, and then I saw him on that TV program "Come Dine With Me" and I realised I had the complete wrong impression of him, and loved his columns after that. Awesome to have him back!

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...
