Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 191

This... needs some words.
A bit of a special for us oldtimers and greybeards this round. Much appreciated. It's been a long time since I had so much content that was ticking my boxes.
And somehow you just couldn't help yourselves and used the ZX graphics for Bounty Bob. (Burn the heretics!)

Re: Questions for Mark 'Kick Off' Greenshields

Wait, what, wasn't that "Dino Dini's Kick Off"??? What's the relationship here? Did Bombo attract any legal interest? I could swear there was a Live and Let Die game? With boat racing possibly? Did being a published book author give you more status (in general), and did it ease you getting sw deals?...

Re: Tracking lateness

#192 snuck up on me today. 24 days after previous, and 13 after first posts in forum.
EDIT: Newsagent had it today (3rd). I thought they got their stock on Thursdays (i.e. before me actually).

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? Let me be positive here for once: I got mail back from subs. After a follow-up mail they...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 191

I thought this might cheer up the crew: For once I plan to read the main feature first! (My reading stack is nicely stocked at the moment though.)

Re: Tracking lateness

#191 elected to grace me with its presence today. No re-mailer info, apart from "Orangepost" with a Norwegian address. Possibly a tad late.
EDIT: Local newsagent has it already. (I.e. 7th)
EDIT2: EDGE #330 arrived 15th.

Is it really Stoo - that isn't some pet/nick name?

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

The Powers That Be might ponder upon this: It has been many many issues since the first thing I read upon opening the magazine was the main story.

Re: Tracking lateness

(BTW, I got Edge (#329) today too.) (W? T? F? I just read EDGE when I find it in my mailbox, so I'm not paying _that_ close attention, but today #328 arrived. After #329. Wrong order, you know. Shipped via a re-mailer in Praha. How is it even possible to mess up something so bad Future?) (EDIT: #32...
