Re: Tracking lateness

The sites I order from in the UK, particularly video games (NZ Game Shop) and books (Book Depository), they send items in bulk to save on shipping costs, so you have to wait until the next bulk order goes out, hence it taking several weeks these days

I’m in the US and my sub starts with issue 181 it supposedly shipped a few weeks ago I’m still waiting but I was wondering do subscriber issues come loose or sealed?
Welcome! They come in a sealed plastic bag.

Re: Tracking lateness

#181 zoned into my mailbox today the 28th (Monday is an odd day for RG - it typically arrives on Thursdays). BTW, as usual the internal Norwegian mail is priority, but that is by Norwegian Mail and only the domestic part. Also note that I'm on a "rest of the world" subscription IIRC. I don't know w...

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

Unless you can have your local postie up about them not rolling or folding the issue like that, the only other real choice is to get a new letterbox that only has a flat slot in it

Re: Retro Gamer issue 181

Just received this in the mail and haven't had a chance to open it yet, but the cover is incredible! I would say this is one of my favorite ever covers of all time, well done who ever is responsible for that.

Re: Tracking lateness

Has anyone already received issue 180 in Germany? I'm still waiting. :( Just arrived in Munich and first thing I did was check the mailbox. I found anything in there but issue 180. It gets more and more irritating. Still I'm "glad" to hear a fellow countryman is experiencing the same drama. Keep up...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 180

Top notch issue from my perspective, Ken Williams interview was awesome, would've loved a couple of pages longer to get more in depth - maybe oneday we might get his lovely wife to do one - that would be as hard as getting the Stampers to interview though :) Loving the Chaos Engine article as well, ...

Re: Tracking lateness

Anyone down under received 180 subscription issue yet? Its been 6 weeks since 179 arrived for me and nothing so far - looks like 179 turning up on time was more luck than anything improving. Not yet. I'm hoping that it'll arrive sometime next week, since it's been available in newsagents for a whil...

Re: Local real collections

I'd be quite interested in a forum thread where people can post pictures of their collection, I always find it really interesting, and one a month isn't quite enough to cover it given the thousands of people who have retro collections

readership by forcing some
No-ones being forced to do anything, so no advantage is being taken. There are some collectors who like this kind of stuff - its just as valid to say the magazine owners are pandering to collectors than taking advantage of them.

Re: Retro Gamer issue 180

Looks awesome, one of my fave games from the 90s too. I'm hanging out for the Ken Williams In the Chair as well, given how rare it is he does this sort of thing, hopefully its extensive

Re: Tracking lateness

I'm of a similar mind - part of the reason I love the mag is the nostalgia and reminding me of gaming mags back in the 90s when I was a kid, which I used to collect. The best part is I can (and do) randomly grab an old issue several times a month and reread them, because the content is so good. I ha...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 179

Am enjoying this issue, some great articles in there - particularly Aladdin and 8-bit Sonic. The In the Chair with Gregg Mayles is the highlight of the mag for me, being a Rare fan from the 90s. It was a great read, and I loved how detailed (and lengthy) his answers were about everything, it gave a ...
