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...

Re: A Question for Subscribers (magazines now sent out damaged?)

WOW, same for my issues, and I just really noticed it was the same across a few different ones. My DK cover has the exact same light crease/scratch at the same angle, but probably 3 inches higher than yours. So I would guess, their machine that spits these out has some kind of defect that is adding ...

Re: Retro Gamer 172 - With Super Play Magazine

Now that it is October, I can say I have not received September's issue at all, despite the email support team saying it was 'dispatched'. Considering they have a distribution center in Pennsylvania, it boggles my mind that someone at the company in the UK (email support team), can't simply contact...

Re: Retro Gamer 172 - With Super Play Magazine

I received my issue in the mail on the 23rd without the Super Play in it, so I sent an email that same day to contact@myfavouritemagazines.co.uk with the order number in it but still haven't heard back. Is there something I'm missing? Yeah, that was probably a mistake at the packing level, as over ...

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

Well, my #172 just arrived today and I'm located in Vegas. This is the second issue I've gotten that has arrived in a rather quick time frame, as Future seems to have gone back to shipping from overseas, and is using a faster shipping method as well. 171 & 172 arrive in about exactly 2 1/2 weeks fro...

Re: Retro Gamer 172 - With Super Play Magazine

Grab a magazine from your local newsagent and hide it behind a magazine that noone reads like trainspotting quarterly. :lol: It will still be there if you need it. B&N does a pretty good job of keeping the magazine area neat and tidy, so that may or may not work(depending on time of course). I don'...

Re: Retro Gamer 172 - With Super Play Magazine

So when should US subscribers receive this issue? I've yet to receive my issue. It seems the release timings have changed with the last issue (171), well for me anyway. I received it almost near UK release which was odd. Normally, for overseas, within the first 2 weeks of a month is when a new issu...

Re: How long before I can report my copy of Retro Gamer missing?

The email I get comes from Darran and it shows the latest issue's cover and talks about whats inside, with a link to back issues of the magazine as well. I didn't always get these, and I can't really remember when they started arriving(I want to say when Future took over, but that may be wrong), but...

Re: Issue 170 overseas delivery

WOW, my issue #171 arrived this past Monday, which was only 2 1/2 weeks after getting my notice it was on the way. Even though the address paper in the plastic has a US return address, it appears to have shipped from overseas, as it had a foreign airmail postage paid label. I never got 100% confirma...

Re: Issue 170 overseas delivery

Still hasn't arrived. Time to get yet another copy sent, with a 50/50 chance the original will turn up as well at some point. Honestly, if you end up with an extra issue, gift it to someone, or sell it. If an issue hasn't shown up in a timely manner, that really isn't your problem, as a paying cust...

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

Well, my #170 arrived today after all, and while not in perfect condition, it's in much better shape than my most recent damages have been, and there replacements as well. So it took about a month(give or take a day), for it to arrive this month. It's actually raining today here in Vegas, in the mid...

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

Another issue showed up damaged today...170. Not liking how Future is handling quality-control of the magazine. Subscribed to the magazine for 5 years under Imagine and never more than just a minor scuff here or there. Of the last 3 issues I've received since the switchover to Future, 2 have had si...

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

Surprise, Surprise, my 169 actually showed up today. So about 3-4 weeks from launch, which is a little longer than the norm, but getting better. Sadly, it arrived with a few rips and tears, so I'm going to request a replacement. But it did arrive in a decent time this month, maybe even before Barnes...

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

I am also in the USA and just received issue 169 (Virtua Fighter yay!!) it appears to have been printed or cut incorrectly as the entire magazine is skewed to one side. Also the tops of the pages are still stuck together. And last there is information missing from the tops and bottoms of the pages....
