Re: Tracking lateness

Surprisingly I got issue 179 on time (in New Zealand) last Friday, first time since I renewed my sub in December last year - and the first time since I went in to the new site and changed my address in the account area to have as few lines of detail in it as possible.

Re: Tracking lateness

If you let them know they will make it right. Never had an issue with a mistake. Thats not my experience - the two times I've tried to get replacements from them they said they had ran out of copies and would just extend my sub. Funnily enough they were still selling those issues off their site to ...

It's also a bit galling to be receiving emails about the wonderful latest issue when the previous still hasn't arrived yet.
When I renewed my subscription (which seemed to cause an abrupt end to getting any issues), those emails stopped so I don't have that problem at all anymore :D

Re: Tracking lateness

I don't mind the issues arriving one month later. To be honest for the duration of this month it will not become more retro or less retro :lol: Thats not the problem though - its that by the time you know for sure whether you're getting it or not, its no longer for sale in retail shops, and the new...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 179

Does anyone still get those emails saying "your latest issue is on its way?" Ever since I re-subscribed from the my favourite magazines site I don't get those anymore (and most of the time the mag doesn't come either). The last email they sent me was for issue 175. Interesting looking issue, quite l...

Re: Tracking lateness

RG 178 subscription just showed up in New Zealand on Friday for me - the first sub issue that has made it to me for over 3 months!

Re: From The Forum issue 180 - Favourite Bitmap Brothers Game

Chaos Engine was my favorite. They put a lot of attention into supporting the PC back then, and their games were almost peerless on that platform.

Re: Tracking lateness

FYI - I ordered 176 and 177 as a single issue and a replacement two weeks a go and they turned up on Monday - haven't seen any of my subscribed issues at all yet. One theory I've got is that when I renewed my subscription on the new website in December, whatever that process was screwed up the addre...

Re: Tracking lateness

I haven't checked if the option is actually available for Hungary, but if it is: Have you considered ordering the newer issues from the official website, i.e. My Favourite Magazines as an alternative? I can understand that basically giving Future even more money despite them screwing up is not the ...

Re: Tracking lateness

I've been 3 months without an issue now, and have even ordered and paid for individual issues from the website and still nothing has turned up - after 10 years of buying from the Imagine site. The subs team are useless - tried to get them to confirm the address they were sending it to and they would...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 177

Got sick of waiting for subs to try and send this issue (and the last one too) so bought it from a mag shop, and thought the list was pretty good. Great to see DOS/PC getting a respectable placing, it was very popular where I grew up. Funnily enough a Facebook page I was on the other day had a massi...

Re: Subscription delivery times to Australia

Probably similar to New Zealand - pretty much random. In the last year I've had 2 issues not show up at all so have had to buy retail copies to replace and one issue showed up 2 months after it was meant to, and arrived after the magazine that was shipped a month after it.

Re: From the forum issue 178 - Goldeneye

I had a Playstation and remember reading a lot about how great Goldeneye was but actually never played it until years later. First a quick game on multiplayer with my brother-in-law which failed miserably as he was one of those folk who knew the game inside out and I'd never played it! Then played ...

Re: Tracking lateness

Good idea - I'm in New Zealand and still haven't received anything since early December (missing issues 176 and 177), and have had no luck trying to re-order from myfavoritemagainzes either, it always just says that its not possible when I select the issue. Issue 177 is out for air-freighted retaile...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 176

Alrighty then, ladies and gents. If you have had issues as of late down under receiving your magazine, in particular, this issue, I need you to help me help you. Please, private message me your address, so I can let the relevant people know where this is happening, we can hopefully figure it out. T...
