Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

So I got a reply from the email and it is as follows: 1 - The ink smears is a known problem and they have no magazines available to send a new one out without a smear on the pages somewhere. 2 - The cut to the spine of my other magazine could have been done on the printing machines and they are send...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Only played Pyscho Fox a few times as my mate had that. Didn't own it myself. From what I can remember though, it was a pretty good little platform. $10,000 in a night on iTunes is a lot, think of all the mags you could get for that :D Hey good your systems got a good home, good they are put to good...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Glen Hansard Haha 😂😂😂 That gave me a laugh for a bit. Yes I love the paper copy and have loads of them I keep in a big wooden chest. I recently totted up how much they all were and it was about £1500! The Mrs wasn’t best pleased but it keeps me happy 😁 As for my favourite systems, I am all for ZX S...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Sounds like you have your work cut out! Good to have Retro Gamer to relax to though :) Good idea not showing what is in the next issue, be a surprise when it hits the door mat. Yes the only thing that worries me with all these mags going, especially like Games Master and Games which I would have tho...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

I apologize Paul, I was in a foul mood that day and I shouldn't had taken it out on you or anyone on the internet.. You have legitimate complaints, but my post was really just directed at those who do make a fuss over a small tear or something like that. But again, I could have been much, much more...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

@Darren, I felt it needed a response in the manner that would be understood. The point needed making and hopefully that is the end of it. I have sent an email to the one provided and will see what happens. This is a thread for "magazine quality", so why would anyone be here not looking to discuss qu...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

@Darren, thanks for the email address. I will address my issue there. Jesus, would you like the next issue delivered by a first class chef, with a meal consisting of lobster & the finest caviar known to man. You two are the type of snobs who examine the magazine with a microscope. "Oh look darling, ...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

It's none of those... it's the thickness and feel of the paper. This is exactly it, the paper thickness on the new magazines is rubbish. If you go back about 5 issues say you can tell the difference. I have had a bad copy of my magazine as mentioned with ink smear so articles can't be read. This is...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Well the content of the magazine is normally always good, some articles are better than others but there is a mix for everyone. Regarding the covers? I subscribe and sometimes I prefer them and sometimes not but I can live with that. I am not going to go out and buy another one from the shop with th...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

I swear some people spend more time worrying about the supposed non-quality of the magazine than actually reading it! Bit of a flippant and assuming quote. I assure you I read the magazine, I don't just buy it for the fun of it, this is why I subscribe to the magazine. These are not like a cheap th...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Do you subscribe?
Can't see it being a subscription thing unless there is a bad batch going around?

Anything from the RetroGamer team?

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

As mentioned previously I have a rolling direct debit for my subscription, I rang the number in the magazine and quoted 8Bitdo, even doing this the woman on the line didn't have a clue what I was talking about then when looked at it said I couldn't do it being a subscriber already and had to purchas...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Well the way the quality is going recently with this magazine then maybe the price should come down too?

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

The ink smears on mine came like that. The magazine wasn't wet and already inside when I flicked through the pages. Looks like done at the printers and a fault there when printing.
