Re: Mag availability in Northern Ireland

Hi Rory. Yes, Eason is basically the Irish version of WH Smith. In fact, Smith is the distributor of Retro Gamer to Eason, I found out recently. I'm not sure if the Smiths stores you listed sell the mag, although I wouldn't have much cause to call in to airports and rail stations anyway! Yeah, that...

Re: Mag availability in Northern Ireland

Had a quick look at the WH Smiths store locator page on its site, and there are a few results for NI stores - three at airports and one at a railway. I'm guessing these are all miles away from you, or maybe they've all shut down. But if not - and if they don't sell RG - then it might be worth asking...

Re: Mag availability in Northern Ireland

Now that Eason has closed its doors, it means Retro Gamer is not on any shop shelves in Northern Ireland (as far as I can tell anyway). I've been ordering the mag online during the pandemic, and will likely take out a sub, but it's a shame it won't be on the shelves here any more. After all, that's...

Rory, thank you for the detailed reply. I’ve been a subscriber for a very long time, I’m not about to ditch it, just wondered what the reasoning was so thank you again.
No worries. :)

Re: Issue size

I always assumed RG was much for of a Subscriber heavy publication which meant retail sales were less important, but I'm guessing from reading this that that's not necessarily the case. I've no idea what the split is, and if retail copies are supplied to shops on a sale or return basis then the num...

Re: Issue size

However, if it is only a blip while everything get backs to normal (whatever normal is) then fair enough, I look forward to the extra pages returning. Before Coronavirus hit, Retro Gamer was sold in every W H Smith - and some larger supermarkets, but because of the virus Smiths shut 70% of its bran...

Re: Tracking lateness

So would the solution for the vast majority of non-UK subscribers be the option of choosing either low-cost standard delivery or single-issue price express delivery when they set up their subscriptions?

Re: IMPORTANT - COVID-19 update

Have you received your digital pdfs of the issues? I know it's not the same but it still allows you to read the magazine. If you haven't your email address possibly isn't on record and it can be updated here I can't speak for him, but while I did get the email with the links to 206 and 207, there w...

Re: Tracking lateness

Have you tried contacting Future's customer service at www.twitter.com/myfavemags? They should be able to get you links to the digital editions and give you an update on when your printed issues of 206 + 207 will be arriving. :) My experience with that Twitter account is complete silence, despite t...

Re: Tracking lateness

#208 battled through the Corona zombie hordes and took refuge in my mailbox just now. No sight of 206+207, and not a word about any digital editions being available.

Re: Stunning new Amstrad CPC racing game

In all honesty, I'd forgotten about that and was thinking of Amstrad's Mega PC with the MegaDrive in it. The X1 Twin is a very odd beast though, especially when you consider that NEC and Sharp were major competitors in the Japanese computer market. It'd be the equivalent of Commodore going to Atari...

Re: Stunning new Amstrad CPC racing game

Sadly, the PC-8801MC just shares the same CD drive as the PC Engine and won't actually play its games. The CPU and graphics hardware are totally different, and they'd have needed to put the entire guts of a games console in there for it to be possible. We'd have to wait a few years until another co...
