Re: Retro Gamer Issue 214 - Turrican

Just read the Turrican article, really interesting. Makes me want to play it again. Tempted to dig my Amiga A600 out and use that.

Re: Subscriptions magazine cover options

I'll just add that I work at a really small publisher (about 10 full-time employees including management) with two monthly magazines, both very certainly selling in _much_ smaller numbers than Retro Gamer. We also introduced subscriber covers a few years ago, but somehow we do manage to offer our s...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 214 - Turrican

Some great articles in this issue, mine came on Monday.

I'm not a fan of the paper envelope either although I've been getting the car magazine Evo like this for over a year and never had any problems with damp or ripped issues personally.

I've just read the Reg Stevens interview, wow what a story, he was unassuming about it all. Great job tracking him down.

Nah, I said what I wanted to say. But some context - the non-subscriber version is really good.
Wow, that's some context! So what's better about the non-sub one then?

Re: When did the paper quality of the magazine get so terrible?

There's no doubt that different magazines use differing paper, I get 3 different mags a month (RetroGamer, EVO and Edge) and RG is probably the least weighty in that regards, but it's never been a problem for me and I've not noticed a change in recent times. Certainly I never have an issue with page...

No, Jason is still poorly in hospital with COVID so it would return fully until he does.
Oh jeez, that's not good, it's been a while now too, I hope he's slowly getting better.

Re: Issue 212

Exactly how late getting delivered is the issue? Or are people just up in arms because the Subs copies aren't in their hands before the shop copies?

Re: Issue size

Oh, has the pandemic passed and we're back to normal now? I must have missed that. Theres no need to be sarcastic. I wasn't being nasty, just pointing out that back in July Darren stated the magazine was back to normal. That's why the free digital editions were stopped soon after. However that's no...

Re: Issue 211

I’ve been reading magazines (mostly computers, gaming , sports and cars) for 40 years and always read the monthly regular columns first. The RG ones always seem a bit short. I’m curious what the required word count is for the Mr Biffo and Iain Lee columns. Each month it seems like they are just gett...
