Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 193

Anyone else notice how the cover is not as thick as it was in the previous magazine?

Re: Tracking lateness

So whatever it is that Future is handling different with these two magazins, it's glaringly obvious that they don't give a F* about non-UK subsribers of RG (expect Norway for mysterious reasons). Norway gets the magazines fast because the crate containing them is just thrown into the sea in the UK ...

Re: PS4 on Credit?

One thing with debt or credit is that one should not look at the numbers but learn to calculate the relative cost. 319 / 279 = 1,14 so you are effectively paying 14% on top of the price, which is a lot in my opinion. And yes, a lot of people over the years have gotten into problems with buying stuff...

Re: What Are Your Favourite C64 Games?

Pretty much anything from MicroProse around a certain time interval was great. We used to play Pirates! a lot with a friend of mine, the game seemed huge back then. The cassette version was much easier than the floppy one as the land battles were missing. They were tough, trying to sack Panama was u...

Re: Tracking lateness

Same problem here in Finland. I hope the magazine arrives tomorrow because I would have liked to take it with me when I leave on Monday.

Re: Tracking lateness

I sense a major disturbance in the force, as issue #182 dropped in my mailbox today - which is almost too good to believe, as that's close to the time it took back in the golden Imagine days. Hopefully that positive trend keeps going... next up: will I receive the first issue of my new subscription...

Re: Tracking lateness

I've not seen #182 in Finland yet so I guess we're back in the normal long delivery time.

Re: Tracking lateness

Just got mine today. I hope this is not just a random glitch that it appeared so soon compared to the previous one.

Re: Fighting Fantasy

Tin Man Games have released Fighting Fantasy Classic on Steam to bring the classic gamebooks to our desktops. Bloodbones should be included as a freebie.

Re: Tracking lateness

We have control up until that point, once handed over to the postal provider we lose control. Those carriers then deliver into each territory and enter those copies into that country's postal system." Don't you have any service level requirements? Now the magazines seem to spend an extra 2-3 weeks ...

Re: Tracking lateness

I think that the European magazines are shipped to some country first as bulk and then from there to individual countries. The other change in addition to the huge delays is that there is no "return to sender" address in the plastic wrapper anymore. It used to point to the Netherlands earlier.

Mark is on holiday. He'll answer your questions when he comes back.
Is he still on holiday? It's been over two months and ZERO answers.

And no, I didn't get 180 yet to Finland. Ever since the change of publisher, the magazine has been here ONCE "on time", which is about two weeks after it's out.

And for the record at hand, my issue #180 arrived yesterday here in Sin City USA!
I expect my issue to arrive in about 2 weeks from today because I live so far away, on the other side of Europe :roll: According to Google Maps, it would take 425 hours to travel here from Bournemouth by foot.
