Re: Argos: The Golden Years!

Great stuff! I also bought the DVD but have since misplaced it so good to see these scanned on. Who knew that when we were flicking through these catalogues as kids, looking for our christmas pressies that we'd want to look at them again in the future, strange but very heart warming.

7 million is very impressive, that's what you call being 'in the zone'!

Re: RG You've got some nerve.

Loving the rant and the fact that even 30 years later it's causing arguments! I had a speccy myself and had a feeling RG would go with C64, nothing to get worked up about though. The writers aren't perfect! Although I do agree this article was bound to cause friction.....it's hardly settled anything...

Re: Official Feedback Issue 99

THE COVER IS AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just had to get that in! Aside from that, have had a flick through and seems to be loads of stuff of interest for me. Not least the Speccy v C64 article which I can't wait to read, although I have a horrible feeling the C64 will win...another good article from Iain...

Re: Free mug for new subscribers....

No I'm not angry about it Retro Bob. I don't lie about that sort of thing. Plus I know what it feels like when I'm angry. I'm 32, it's happened a few times in those 32 years, this is not one of those occasions! And the crisps analogy is so dreadful it's laughable. I don't subscribe to one pack of cr...

Re: Free mug for new subscribers....

"Not as if it's stickers or anything"? For starters stickers would cost less. Plus for everyone who likes stickers, there would be just as many who would want a mug. Plus it's easy to say "It's just a 'kin mug", it's not really about the mug. Like I said, I'm not angry about it, but some people are ...

Re: From the forum - Retro Gamer turns 100

That moment when the magazine drops through the letter box on a saturday morning still gets me excited......issue 100 will be even more so.

Re: Free mug for new subscribers....

Hmmm, if I'd bothered to find out what the saving was for me I may have written something similarly sacrastic in my last post! I was thinking about getting a sub in the wifes name too but can't work out if it's worth the hassle....it's a mug so probably not.

Re: Free mug for new subscribers....

Thanks Lucy, like I said I don't complain regularly. Typical of the company that we get such a quick response, can't be many more who value their customers like Retro Gamer. I almost feel bad for raising the issue! Oh and nice to hear that current subscribers are in fact getting a better discount......

Re: Free mug for new subscribers....

The initial e-mail title did just say 'claim your free gift', as someone said before. If it said, 'subscribe and get a free gift' I wouldn't have gotten my hopes up and therefore may not have even said anything.

Re: Free mug for new subscribers....

Yeah, sending out the e-mail to subscribers does seem silly. Can I cancel my sub and then open up a new one for a free mug?!! I understand why they would do this, but it's naturally going to censored off the core readers. Maybe what they could have done is said they'd also give current subscribers s...
