I've only just started reading the mag this issue, primarily because I grew up on the NES.
I found it great, all the features where excellent, although the "Conversion capers" could have been about a better game, but I appreciate that this is issue 38 and I might have missed previous one's that featured better games.
I'm now hopefully not going to waste too much money buying the NEX system, if the damn site ships worldwide, and a NES.
Things that annoyed me though was the amount of spelling mistakes there were. I realize that you are still a new magazine and are not the media giants like EDGE, which by the way was behind RG in WHSmiths, but on ethe fist page for example there is "...Retro Gamer will be more interactive than either
." [start of the second paragraph under D.J's ugly mug], I don't know whether this is printing error, bad spelling or bad editing but for my simple mind, made numb by hours of pong and space invaders, I had to read a few lines more than once.
Despite that I will most probably be subscribing soon.

I was in the local town center earlier in Smiths and had to look incredibly hard for RG (although I don't need it as I'm a subscriber) - it was tucked away in a dark corner, in a far less prominent position than the RG Bookazine. How is anybody supposed to find it? Publications which I'd think would be far more marginal ('Monitoring monthly'?) get front-of-shelf top-of-display locations...
Maybe the other publishers are paying for the prominent space (its commonly done)?
I give you one guess as to where all the Playstation mags where, and another guess as to where the Nintendo ones where.
Grey is cool.
