Re: Tracking lateness

I got my sub #208 on Wednesday or Thursday to Finland. I do not hope to see the missing magazines any time soon.

Re: Tracking lateness

On a related note, I received a snail mail paper letter from Future just yesterday with the standard "your subscription is in danger of running out in 3 months, renew it NOW!!" nag (for Edge in that case) dated from May 8th, posted via Royal Mail. Funny how that works just as usual, but delivering ...

Re: Tracking lateness

I got an email on Thursday stating that issue 208 will be sent out normally to subscribers. No info when 206-7 will be sent though.

Re: Tracking lateness

My subscription got cancelled because they couldn't charge my credit card as it had expired. I got absolutely zero warnings like from any other normal service such as Netflix. The funny thing is, they have been sending me emails that my magazine is on its way but of course, I never received them.. F...

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.

However, the controller offer is open to existing subscribers, so there's no reason for you to miss out. Simply phone 0344 848 2852 and quote 8Bitdo and you'll be able to continue your sub. The deal is open to all existing subscribers as well as new ones and it's mentioned right at the bottom of th...

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.
