Re: Multiple covers

What, you mean you DON'T like touring multiple unnecessary shops during a pandemic to hunt down all the covers? All joking aside, maybe the mag is going down the Marvel Comics business model? Coming next month: 10 variant covers, a Director's Cut (with extra pages), a "sketch" style variant cover, ...

Multiple covers

We need to talk about multiple covers. Having a subscriber cover and a newsstand cover is excessive but fair enough. This month we had seven newsstand covers in a month, during a pandemic. I know the official line will be “we are offering choice”, but realistically that isn’t the case. Many of us li...

Re: Awesome Cover on the latest Retro Gamer well done Team

I didn't say the number of problems is small, I said the number of users with problems here is small. There will be plenty of others being ignored on Twitter or email too. We know this. Future clearly don't care. The number and severity of complaints obviously isn't taxing them overly. The problem ...

Re: New Subscriber Help - No deliveries & No Customer Service (Canada)

Sorry to hear it mate and I'm sure the mag team are too - Future customer service is a total shitshow. They simply cannot continue to blame Covid at this stage, as you say post is getting through just fine. I suspect Future are using some cheap skank postal service rather than Royal Mail. In the la...

Re: Awesome Cover on the latest Retro Gamer well done Team

The number of users here with problems is tiny compared to the overall readership. It would probably cost more to sort out the problems (in terms of staffing, stock, postage etc, but mainly just staff time spent doing it) than losing that subscriber. It's quite clear they don't care. Darran heads a...

RetroCollect is supposed to be having some kind of redesign - I hope it comes back, it was an excellent site.
It will be, I know the guy that is working on it

Re: Tracking lateness

I’ve given up hope of anything positive coming from future about this situation. Their silence tells me everything I need to know Unfortunately I agree; after my run in, I'm pretty much done ordering. They're flat out useless, and have no intention or interest in fixing their problems. I have had m...

Re: Retro Gamer 217. Capcom: An Arcade Legacy

There is no way of choosing. Given that 3 covers are mail order only, I am surprised that someone somewhere approved this

Re: Tracking lateness

Plot twist. I go to get my mail out of my mailbox today, and all of a sudden I see three issues, after nothing since October! Great, they are finally catching up to their backlog. I take them out to see....THREE copies of issue 214. No 211-213, 215, 216, any of those. What the heck is going on ther...

Re: Awesome Cover on the latest Retro Gamer well done Team

Its a thread about someone liking the cover of a magazine Then you start posting the usual negative stuff, this time about Trustpilot reviews, why ? Moaning about customer service on this thread ? Granted you've had a very bad experience, we all know that believe me we do, but this was a thread abo...

Re: Have you kept in contact with any of your school friends ?

Primary school: 3 of them. One is ultra political, one is a nightclub owner and the other keeps herself to herself High school: everyone added everyone, a few people are still friends with the same people, my best friend from then recently got engaged for I think the 4th or 5th time, she will be I t...

Re: Awesome Cover on the latest Retro Gamer well done Team

Distribution was a problem in the early days, 15 years, 3rd publisher and its as bad as ever. I’ve mentioned it numerous times on here but just get ignored or told I should subscribe, even though I do and have for years. 8 covers, seriously, 8? Did no one suggest an art supplement, or a magazine fea...
