Re: Tracking lateness

Issue #183 arrived to me yesterday here in Sin City USA. So these have for sure been staying on the same course of delivery times for awhile now, at least since it was fixed. This latest issue arrived in amazing shape as well, which has been an problem off and on over the last year or so, since ship...

Re: Bookazines or lack of.

Well, in my experience, most of the Bookazines have stayed pretty much the same for the last several years. The annuals & other books just pretty much reprint past info about a topic from past issues of Retro Gamer(Amiga, Annuals, SNES, Atari, Playstation, etc). I own all of those and then several t...

Re: Tracking lateness

It's 18.07.2018 and I still dont have my RG #182. It's fu% ridiculous ! ( shipment to Poland ) Every time situation is the same. 4-5 weeks of delay and nobody cares about it ! You can send e-mails and have simple respond form some BOTs where answer is always the same "We are sorry blah blah blah". ...

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

As stated, I see this kind of stuff across many different mediums, and it is what it is. If deals like this where given to everyone, it would never work from a financial standpoint, unless they get said items for free(as some promotion with items maker). Stuff like this controller is offered to get ...

Re: Subscriber Covers

I just got #182 yesterday, and that exclusive cover is killer, as it's way better than the standard one for sure. Yeah, I didn't care for the Street Fighter cover either, and actually thought the standard one was much better there, due to the negative space as mentioned and the lack of the "Street F...

Re: Missing booklet, stickers

Just got my subscription copy yesterday here in the US, and both items where included, so no issues for me this time around.

I received 181 on 6/8 and today I got 182
WOW, my #181 came on the 7th, and #182 arrived yesterday on 19th. And my #182 included the stickers & Megadrive booklet as well, so no issues outside of super quick shipping(which isn't really a problem). LOL

Re: Tracking lateness

My #181 arrived in Las Vegas 2 days ago on the 7th, and 3 weeks has been my average time for awhile now. Condition runs the spectrum each month, but the issues do arrive in a decent amount of time and have been since the problems with Future seem to have been fixed(At least for me in the US). I'm st...

Re: Tracking lateness

Mark is on holiday. He'll answer your questions when he comes back. Is he still on holiday? It's been over two months and ZERO answers. And no, I didn't get 180 yet to Finland. Ever since the change of publisher, the magazine has been here ONCE "on time", which is about two weeks after it's out. I ...

Re: Tracking lateness

I guess Future feels like we should be glad that they issues arrive at all, which they at least seem to do (just so veeery late!). I certainly don't see any signs that things are improving, which is a sad state of affairs. Fortunately the magazine doesn't get old even though it arrives very late. B...

Re: Tracking lateness

(Funky thing: As far as I understand, the US Post is running in blood-red numbers. Because they need to finance pensions 75 years into the future in the span of 10 years... No single institution has ever been burdened with such harsh and silly demands.) LOL, our postal service here in the states is...

Re: Tracking lateness

For me it's only printed or nothing. If RG goes all digital I will find my retro gaming fix elsewhere. It's not because of the quality of the content - RG is very good and pours a lot of work into each issue - in terms of research, writing and design. But first of all it's RETRO Gamer so in my mind...

Re: Tracking lateness

I just don't understand how a company can be so inefficient in the year 2018. It must be hard for print magazines to survive these days so you'd think that they'd treat the people who do subscribe and pay good money a lot better than they do. It's such a shame to see all the good work that goes int...

Re: Tracking lateness

Canadian here. Curiously, I just received a reminder card to renew my subscription. It has a month left for their offer. I still have not received issues 177 or 178. I may not be renewing, if this keeps up. Yeah, I just got my renewal card last week, but that rate has always been to high in my opin...

Re: Tracking lateness

Yeah, my shipping speeds got straight awhile back, as it was pretty bad for a good period of time. Which I'm very amazed by, especially with all the complaints seen in this thread. I would even say I've been getting issues faster now, than I did before Future took over. Now sadly, most issues are ar...
