Re: Tracking lateness

#182 arrived in New Zealand today, last few months the delivery has been as good as it was under Imagine, its so much more enjoyable without the stress of worrying whether its coming or not!

Re: Subscriber Covers

I thought the SF cover was one of the best covers they've done - the artwork was so good that removing all the extra text stuff they normally include gave it room to breathe and really shine.

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

I've been buying online and/or subscribing for over 10 years now and the price hasn't ever increased? Its actually 25% cheaper now to buy single issues through Future (if you want the non-subscriber covers), than it was at Imagine. The whole reason I subscribe is because the mag is just so good and ...

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

From a purity point of view, yes it is, however I personally prefer Puzzle Bobble, as it has a similar can't-put-it-down feel, and the added characters and graphics give it a bit of extra visual flair.

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
