Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 190

I was surprised by the f words too - it's not something I expected and hit the wrong side of balance in my opinion. If I had kids I would've considered Retro Gamer a "safe read" too - not that kids are the target market obviously. It's not like it's watering the magazine down by not including a few ...

It was a nice surprise to see a feature on Space Station Silicon Valley.

Hi, apologies if this is the wrong place to ask but has anyone received their 8bitDo yet?
Mine arrived about 6-7 weeks after I subscribed.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 184

As a returning subscriber (I unsubscribed when it was upped from 6 issues a year, I think), this is an issue I wouldn't have bought, as none of the main features are games I'm interested in. Despite that, I did enjoy reading some of them, especially The Oregon Trail game (which I wasn't aware of). O...

Re: Subscriber Covers

I don't like being negative about a magazine I generally enjoy, but (now I'm actually a subscriber again) the Daytona subscriber cover is the worst so far. The regular news stand cover looks great.

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

Hi, I have also been a subscriber for a long time and I have a rolling direct debit subscription where I don't have to keep renewing. Am I able to also get the controller and still keep this self renewing direct debit I have set up? Yes. I've just received this month's issue and there's a full page...

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

I'd imagine 8bitdo get something out of this, so I doubt the full controller price comes out of magazine funds. It's good publicity for 8bitdo. I've resubscribed for the first time in many years (I guess I buy the magazine 2-4 times a year on average). I'd only seen the 8bitdo controllers a few days...

Re: From The Forum issue 183 - Tetris: Best puzzler ever?

I was never a fan of Tetris. A review of Tetris Attack in Nintendo Official Magazine convinced me it was different enough from Tetris, and Tetris Attack became my favourite puzzler of all-time. It's especially fun (and tense) playing multiplayer with my brother - building up massive chains and dropp...

Re: Subscriber Covers

I'm not a subscriber and I've preferred every one of the newstand covers since the different covers were introduced. I think it works with some magazines. I'm not sure why it doesn't with Retro Gamer. Edit: Now I've subscribed via the controller offer, I hope the subscriber covers are ditched. If an...

Re: Magazine cop out !!!

I buy other magazines and Retro Gamer is one of the two best (the other being Wanderlust) in terms of delivering content, especially where the cover feature is concerned. I bought an issue of Trail recently and the main cover feature was a 2-minute read!

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 178

I enjoyed the MUD article even though some of it went over my head. I was hoping for a bit more from the Goldeneye feature given how many pages it took up, but it was good nonetheless.

I liked the little Oh Mummy feature too. Championship Manager still to read - I'm looking forward to that one.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 178

Plenty of interest in this one for me, and I'm all for more in depth features when they're a game I like. I'm glad my Perfect Dark mention got into "From the Forum" - my first appearance. :D

Despite having a N64 from the early days I never got Golden Eye and still have not played it. I did get its spiritual successor though Perfect Dark.

Re: Almost every issue I receive gets ruined in the mail

In the UK we'd probably get compensation if something arrived that badly damaged. It'd be up to the sender to claim from Royal Mail (or whoever delivers it) I think. Your photo is shocking and I'd be complaining to the local Royal Mail straightaway, but we are supposed to be good complainers in the ...
