Ah balls, another one! Already got all the magazines but I know I'll only regret NOT buying this one... Bah.

Still, nice cover.

For some reason my local RS Mcolls never seems to get these in any more.

Thank goodness for the occasional trip over to the next town with a big W H Smiths which seems to get every magazine known to mankind.

It seems WHSmiths don't stock it. I tried a few and no luck. They have it on their database but just don't stock it apparently.

It's sold in the London WH Smiths, though there seem to be only 1-2 copies allocated to each store. I had to visit 5 different places until I found one that wasn't damaged.

Got one. :D

Local WHSmith had 2 on the shelves - and happily one of them wasn't horribly damaged!!
(the other was in an absolutely pitiful condition).

They had it in WHSmith's in Southport today, but just as I was about to buy it I noticed Viz had put out a new Fat Slags compilation book, for £3 cheaper than the RG book, so I got that instead :D

Seems much easier to just order it online then trekking round trying to find it

Picked it up earlier this week, oddly enough WH Smiths only had the only copy at the start of the week and no normal Retro Gamer magazines at all (normally it is the other way around) but it was damaged and I decided against it luckily it seems they must have got a delivery of them in as there were quite a few on the shelves

Same here, loads of bookazines but no mags (I assume we're still on the Master System issue). I keep meaning to buy it from the online store but just keep forgetting or never getting round to it.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
