Re: Tracking lateness

Yeah, my last issue(#187) arrived back on November 27, and I averaged about every 3 weeks for the year, so #188 is for sure behind. It was holiday time when it was shipped, and this can cause rather fast deliveries, or beyond slow ones. I guess it's time to contact the powers that be for a replaceme...

Re: Tracking lateness

And lastly, I whish the subscription and csutomer service departments of Future would invest even a fraction of the energy in actual customer service than they do in their relentless spamming with the "20% off" campaigns they're running pretty much weekly now - right now I'm getting at least one em...

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 sen...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Yeah, it's physical or bust for me as well, as reading stuff digital is cool and all, as being able to enlarge text is a Godsend, especially for old eyes like my own :wink: Having said publications in my hands, to flip through and collect, is a childhood practice that defines me and I have no plans ...

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. Feel free to chip in at any point Retro Gamer / Future Publishing as I see nothing from you. I can supply pictures of the poor quality of my last 2 magazines and would welcome 2 new magazines sending to me with no damage which is what ...

Re: Tracking lateness

So has this lateness problem been fixed for all at this point, or did most just give up on getting proper delivery service? The reason I ask, is that this thread doesn't appear to active as of late, but I'll post my latest arrival info anyway, especially since I'm here anyways. LOL My latest issue #...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

In my opinion they should just go back to using the same retail cover for subs issues. The ‘special’ sub covers aren’t great. I cancelled my sub after the best part of 10 years last month and have just gone back to getting the retail edition. I understand for many the editorial content is the only ...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

This voting for content thing is just bizarre... perhaps customers at your work should vote for whatever it is that you do?! People get paid to be at work and that's the only reason they are there, as no one shows up for free. I pay Future for RG, and when I signed up, it was for the cover shown ea...

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

Yeah, I've had to swear off dealing with Future directly at this point, as customer service is complete and utter ****! To my knowledge, there is no one actively in these forums that can help, as I guess Mark is no longer around. I had ordered a few bookazines from the site, only to never get a ship...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

My latest issue has not arrived yet, so I can't comment on the paper quality of that issue, but the quality was reduced ages ago, and I'm sure it was a cost saving measure. RG used to be one of the best mags around in regards to paper quality, but for a medium where physical is probably barely feasi...

Re: Tracking lateness

I live in Boston I got an e-mail saying my issue 185 is on the way on 9/4 still no sign of it. Yeah, I'm in Sin City and mine just arrived yesterday. Normally the east coast is my gauge for when mine might arrive, as you guys often get yours a few days before I get mine each time. So I was surprise...

Re: Bookazines or lack of.

I really do like the look of games to play- but not at US $27 like. So if it's still in stock when discounted, I'll pick it up. Just not sure why 2-3 of the new bookazines have that extra US$5 added I'll assume it has to do with page count, as the previous hardware handbook is 180 pages, and this n...

Re: Bookazines or lack of.

Ultimate Retro Hardware Guide sounds suspiciously like a rehash of the Videogames Hardware Handook editions...with a new shiny cover... anyone confirm? Yeah, I was wondering the same, and the best I can guess is it has some more recent consoles like the Switch. I can't remember in the original what...

Re: Font Size

Yeah, I've had problems with the color as well as the font size, but as so graciously stated, being retro means "old" for most, and eyes aren't what they sued to be. LOL Now the color issue, that's a different matter entirely, but I haven't notice any major issues recently, but in the past some page...
