New Bookazine?

Post by IronMaidenRule » Tue May 03, 2011 5:35 pm

Any chance of a new bookazine coming out soon? Nearly a year since the last one...not counting the hardware handbook vol.2

I actually prefer the Games TM bookazines since they are all new content for Retro Gamer readers whereas the RG bookazines are just recycled content.

Can we expect a new Games TM Retro bookazine anytime soon? It's been about a year since the last one was released.

I find the bookazines pointless as I have all the issues from 65 onwards with no gaps, so Im not spending another tenner plus on stuff I already have.

I love the bookazines, nice to have a compliation. Much easier taking that book in the loo than 12 seperate RG's. I've got every issue but do enjoy these bookazines, probably a good way as well for newbies to get into RG or play catch up if they dont have earlier issues

The bookazines are great! And they look so nice. Looking forward to the next one (even though yes I have most of the content anyway - I read the making of Robocop last night for about the 10th time!)

And issues 1 & 2 reprinted would be nice as well!

Just got mine today. Looks great. Love the cover! There were only three copies in Smiths though, one of which was dog-eared.

Good to see it's appearing in WHSmiths. The big question is, will it appear in mine? In other news, how long's a piece of string? :P

Got mine in the post yesterday. I do like the sprite covers. More of your handiwork, Darran? Now then, where's the next Games TM Retro one?
