I'd also like to know if this is coming to Barnes & Noble stores here in the States.

Had a flick through this in Smiths today. Far too much 90's & console stuff in there for my liking so the tenner stayed in my pocket.

That's the type of stuff I really enjoy. Now I'm looking forward to it even more. :D

Picked it up last week, great read. I find it's a decent price I mean if you compare it to a normal magazine's price with the amount of content the price is just about right, any more and it would be too expensive. Also because I don't read GamesTM the articles are new to me which again adds to the value.

I'd have to say this is the first such compilation that I have purchased that I havent been overly happy with. I like games of all types but it just seems this is packed with all the ones i happen to not like, never quite happened before.. just found it lacklustre overall, although of course with such a massive amount of content there is bound to be some things of interest in there to retro gaming fans.

just not my favourite compilation of all time I guess!

Hi all,
GamesTM Retro Volume 6 appeared in WH Smith Charing Cross this morning. This issue reprints the Crash #20 Red Moon cover.

Apologies for reviving an old thread, but I was wondering about Games TM Retro Volume 6. I bought it from the Imagine eshop site last Sunday (25 May), but have yet to receive an email stating that it's shipped. Wasn't sure what the regular time frame for it is. :D

Cool, just bought online. Noticed they also have some 'mini' bookazines with the Imagine app, eg an Ocean one, Konami one. Its just obviously content from past Retro Gamers made into one small file but i might pick them up, these mini eBooks are only £2.99 each

One downside to this bookazine is the page count. Its gone down to 180 pages, compare this to the 250 page count mark of the first one and all for the same money.

Yeah good point, noticed that last night. Still really enjoy these Retro bookazines as i never get GamesTM so most of it is new to me.

But yeah all the others are around 250 pages but like you say this ones considerably less
