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...

Mark is on holiday. He'll answer your questions when he comes back.
Thanks Darran, I'm glad to hear he is still here. I'll wait until I hear back then, as it's no rush so long as I know he'll respond at some point.

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 woul...

Re: Best renewal offer for US subscribers?

Hey folks, Back when the magazine was published by Imagine, there was a coupon code for renewing Retro Gamer that made the annual rate £50, or about $65. The current 40% off offer is $93. What is the best offer we are likely to see for renewals? Over the holidays, I don't think there was anything b...

Re: Subscriber since 2012, really close to cancel it

Hi Mark, thanks for checking in, and giving updates on what is currently happening for subscribers. As I have stated, I was having many issues, all of which seem to have been resolved. As my issues show up now in a timely manner, and less damaged then what had been happening recently. While my servi...

Re: Subscriber since 2012, really close to cancel it

I was having major issues once Future took over, as it seems many others did to. At that time, Darren turned us over to Helen here in the forums at CS, and she was great to deal with. Sadly, within the last week or so, it was reported she was no longer handling these problems. Since then, I have not...

Re: Are US subscriptions now being shipped from within the US? Shipping speed VERY slow. Packaging flimsy.

For anyone in the US who is missing #172, I was just at Barnes & Noble(west coast), and they finally had stock. My local store is also very slow putting out shipments, so other locations may have had them sooner. The retail price is $15 for this issue, but if anyone has their subscription missing, o...

Re: Are US subscriptions now being shipped from within the US? Shipping speed VERY slow. Packaging flimsy.

Well, color me shocked, as my #173 just showed up yesterday. Which was only about 2 1/2 weeks since #172 arrived. What ever Future is doing on my account, please keep it up. LOL And this issue doesn't seem to have the crease problem either, that my last 2 issues had. EDIT: BTW, I'm in Vegas, if that...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 173

So when should US subscribers receive this issue? I never received #172, now have to worry I get this issue. I got my 172 on the 26th of last month, and I'm in Vegas. My local Barnes & Noble is due to get theirs this Saturday, and east coast locations might already have them. As I've seen a US sell...

Re: Retro Gamer 172 - With Super Play Magazine

Well, it seems Helen is no longer doing the forum duties, someone else took over and they don't have "spares". Unreal that I pay for a sub and the company, which is the source of the copies, don't print enough for these "lost in transit" scenarios. The reality is they have access to get copies, eve...
