Re: Tracking lateness

Shall I be worried that I still haven't received#181? Are there anyone else overseas still waiting?

Re: Subscriber Covers

^^^ My preference was the other way around SF vs MD. Anyhoo, you can't please all the people all of the time. Yeah but SF subscriber cover was just stripped down non-subscriber cover with pallet swap. Regardless of personal preference it's not great. And the issue of negative space to the right of ...

Re: Subscriber Covers

While I can agree the subscriber street fighter cover was a cop-out, the mega drive cover is awesome! Let's see how this trend continues, I say. The only thing they need to fix is the negative space to the right of the retro Gamer logo in the subscription-only covers! P.s. buying two copies of the m...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 182

Ok this time subscriber cover looks good, let's see if this trend continues. Definitely newsstand cover is great as well, even to the point that I'm kinda torn between the two :) http://i64.tinypic.com/121rg4l.jpg But reading about the missing goodies problem people are having with this issue makes ...

Re: Issue 182 missing something?

Well that's just 'great'.. sorry for all the subs who didn't get the goodies! As for me - I'll have to wait for about a month to see if I'm missing something in #182. By that time all replacement copies will be long gone :( P.s. this time I didn't get any email that my copy is on the way. Usually I ...

Re: Issue 182 missing something?

At least you've got one :) I'm still waiting for 181 to arrive :roll:
Also haven't got any emails that 182 is shipped

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

Tetris is great and can be enjoyed in hundreds of different iterations (bar some of the recent UbiSoft games). Even today we can see developers finding ways to improve on the simple but addictive formula - apparently we will now get Tetris in VR :D Tetris is also the game to bridge generations and i...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 181

I haven't seen the non-subs front, but I suspect that will be the winner this month again - the sub version has absolutely nothing but some SF II drawing on the front (a game I have 0 interest in). I will agree. Subs cover is just a stripped down version of non-subs cover with swapped font and a lo...

Re: Magazine cop out !!!

Retro Gamer is one of the densest magazines out there in terms of words per page. I don't think a few nice 2 page spreads showing off a console and breaking up the articles is really a bad thing, and I quite enjoy them. Having recently bought some of the earliest issues though, the word density hav...

Re: Magazine cop out !!!

It's not a cop out. I like this full-sized pictures of the games screenshots, systems or peripherals. It's a joy to look at and the amount of text is just right with nice little anecdotes to support it. There are a lot of articles in the mag that go in-depth with certain gaming console as well. Don'...

Re: From The Forum 182: What's your favourite Mega Drive game

Mega Drive is a gem box so picking one 'favourite' game is tough! Earthworm Jim 1 and 2? Dune II? Aladdin? Comix Zone? Contra Hard Corps or Streets of Rage 2? So many good memories from that little console!

Re: Gaming's Greatest Icons

Rick Dickinson - the designer of the Speccy and some other computers (including Gizmondo portable) passed away recently. Nice obituary on Eurogamer. Maybe Retro Gamer can also dedicate a couple of pages to remember his life and achievements.

Re: Retro Gamer issue 180

With this one subscribers are getting an exclusive cover! And it looks awesome in my opinion :o How will non-exclusive cover look? And as usual we digital subscribers (I've been subbing digitally since 2009 or so I think :o ) are treated stepmotherly I guess. Only the regular front, no extras of an...
