I dont think the problem is Imagine Publishing releasing this, i think the problem is your addiction to buying these mags ! If another version came out with a few more full stops you would probably buy it ! ;)

If i had all the GamesTM's with all the retro stuff in em i wouldnt bother buying this.

Update - Still not in Manchester :(

Well it wasn't in my major Milton Keynes store but imagine (no, no the publisher!) my surprise when I took a quick trip after work into the smaller Bletchley store and found it in there.

It's identical in size and shape as volume 1 but I'm afraid it's £12.99 Feels pricey for what effectively is a large magazine but hey, hardly any adverts so canny not complain.

Just to prove I have obtained it, the very first page is an advert relating to Zombies!

Well, I might even be happy to buy it for the 12.99 ukp, but apparently Imagine isn't too interested in mainland Europeans getting it (at least the various questions about availability via website or phone have been ignored so far)...

Ah well. And yes, I realize it's not really Darran's job to organize the distribution of the thing.

It's going to be available in mainstream Europe, and will be on sale wherever gamesTM is.

Sorry, I'm not on hand to answer all questions when they're immedaitely asked, it's not as though I have a job to do... :wink:

I'm from 'dan 'saff (Reading) but moved up north where it rains all the time 2 years ago as the missus (Shes from Blackburrnnnnn) didnt want to move down south where its nice and sunny all the time so i live near Bury. Please dont stalk me ;)

As for this mag, yeah 12.99's a lot but its a one off which comes out about once a year and is well well worth it.
