Re: Delivery and subscription renewal issues

I can confirm that I received the email and subscribing an extension worked fine this morning. I was happy to see that the quarterly extension is now also available outside the UK.

Re: From The Forum issue 176 - Favourite football game

Microprose Soccer on the C64, which Sensible Software made before the amazing Sensible Soccer. Banana kicks, rain storms, video replays, tournaments and a cracking six-a-side game to go with the traditional outdoor game. With Martin Galway's crazy music and crisp overlaid sprites, a truly great gam...

Re: Delivery and subscription renewal issues

Well, the magazine arrived today, but https://imagine.subscribeonline.co.uk/login is still dead it seems. So no Black Friday discounts this year to returning customers :?:

Re: Delivery and subscription renewal issues

Well, the "sea" between the UK and the mainland Europe shouldn't be the problem here :mrgreen: Previously everything was sent from the Netherlands if I remember correctly. A 2-week delay was the maximum then.

Thank you for your offer, I'll contact you via PM.

Delivery and subscription renewal issues

Is there really nothing that could be done about the European delivery issues we are seeing all the time? Issue 174 was out on November 3rd I think, and I'm still waiting for my subscribed magazine to arrive in Finland. Once again, it takes about 5 days for anything to arrive from the UK using any s...

Re: Amiga big box games

I'm sure there is a market for boxed games. Since there used to be a lot of stuff included in the boxes, a complete one could definitely sell for a nice amount of money. Personally I would start by making a catalogue of what's available, putting that in a shared Google Sheet and post it in EAB's mar...

Re: Subscriber since 2012, really close to cancel it

I'll also say that things are getting ridiculous. Ever since the publishing went to Future, the magazines have arrived in Finland at same time as they are delivered to subscribers in New Zealand. They arrive somewhat damaged and they arrive late (still waiting for issue 173 which was out almost two ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

Funny reading about things in Retro Gamer being obscure. I feel that one important job for the magazine is to bring up companies, people and games who are not known to all people. I'd rather read about unknown people in the old scene than read the same stories about Archer MacLean, Ron Gilbert or Jo...

Re: Suddenly having problems receiving new issues! :(

It seems that Finland is really now suffering from the crappy delivery times. I just got an email advertising the latest issue "which will be arriving soon". I looked at the cover and it didn't look familiar at all, and I'm not surprised because even the previous issue has not arrived yet and it's o...

Re: Retro Gamer 168

Probably would have been a nice issue, but if approximately one third of the pages are unreadable unless you have a bright light and tilt your head or magazine to be able to read the mess, it's not worth trying. There were some places where the left page was a mess and the right page perfectly reada...

Re: Suddenly having problems receiving new issues! :(

I'm waiting for #168, usually the magazine ends up in my mailbox about a week after it's out in the UK. Regular mail takes 4-5 days so I'd say that 3 weeks is already a long time.

Re: The Missing Retro Gamer features

What about a feature on the MechWarrior series? The last game is more than 15 years old now, the games should be retro enough and the series was overall very good. On my to-do list :D How about extending this to the whole BattleTech universe? I have fond memories of The Crescent Hawk's Inception ev...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 160

The size of text and the colour combinations are troublesome. I'd rather have simpler layouts and larger text with more sympathetic colour choices too. It's a shame as it can get in the way of content sometimes. We do look into this, but we get so few complaints that it's unlikely to change. You'll...

Re: Games that have made you cry

At the end of Grim Fandango. Only time ever, and it surprised me. But then I realised wow.. the writing was amazing in this game, just superb. Great question! Grim Fandango was great. I never cried but felt quite emotional during Lola's death scene. Planescape: Torment was quite touching at times. ...
