I was considering having a shave before I check the local WHS. Although perhaps my feral look would persuade her to get rid of me without any arguments and accept the voucher! :twisted:
They'll probably just be glad to have someone actually buying a

Yeah! :D

Anybody buy RetroGamer from the Bristol, Cribbs Causeway WHS by any chance? We have a weird mechanical guy that sometimes threatens us at the counter... I'm serious! He's like the R.O.B.O.T. of customer service relations, not sure if he's Asimov 3 laws complient though :?

Just grabbed the anthology in Fleet's tiny WHSmith, oddly perched on the top shelf.

Nothing in WHSmiths in Plymouth. It comes from the 'warehouse' was the only response that I could get out of a staff member.

Wasn't expecting to see this released until the end of the month, so you can imagine my surprise when I spotted it in WHS whilst on a trip to Brecon on the weekend!! Immediately snapped it up (£13 price tag took me by surprise, but I guess vol.1 was pubilshed 2 years ago now so it's to be expected) and have loved reading it - about 1/2way through so far and I have to say it's feckin superb (would've been nice to see another Frey cover though :wink: )

Both branches in Newcastle aren't stocking it - Can someone supply the ISBN number please?

*laughs* One of my mates works over at Toys R Us Cribbs Causeway, so will ask him if he's encountered this guy.

How does he threaten you exactly?

As for the price tag, I'm a little shocked that it weighs in at over the £10 mark. As a subscriber of GamesTM, and someone who has every issue I shouldn't really be wanting to add this to my collection, but I love to support as much as possible if it's retro related, and if I don't buy it it'll mean I have a gap in my GamesTM collection.

Arrgggh!

Well - I popped into Bournemouth today - waved at RG towers as I walked past, thinking 'I should go and say hello - and ask Darren if he's going to reply to my pm' then pottered down to WHS.

Picked up the mag - errr BOOK at what sounds like a HUGE £12.99.

BUT

If you dont buy Games tm like mem then this is a HUGE mag FULL to the brim with NEW articles :D

Very glossy - a it's spankingly good too :D

Has Imagine ever thought about including a cut out coupon in Gamesâ„¢ and Retro Gamer ,or two coupons in two issues, to get a ,say (at least), 3 pound price cut? Making it more affordable for the loyal readers? Eh?

Tssh, really, I don't understand that everybody's accepting this as 'normal' and are rushing out to buy this?
Were talking about +3 pounds for the same 'bookazine' in two years time.
It's hilarious. Pfff.

As has been pointed out, you're not being forced to buy it...
