Let's have a Christmas themed cover... Please!

Post by 3fruits » Thu Nov 03, 2016 6:11 pm

It's been a good few years since we had a Christmas themed cover. Please can we have one this year! I'm sure others will agree with me

Sorry, but there's no Christmas cover this year.
Our issue falls on either the 30th of November, or the 29th of December, so we're either nowhere near Christmas, or we miss it completely.
I know there are some of you who enjoy the Christmas covers (I always enjoy seeing myself on Oli's covers) but there won't be one this year.
Sorry, everyone.

I wouldn't think it needs to be an actual Christmas one, but a bit of snow on the logo would work well if it arrived on 29th December, as we usually get snow in January.

Does that mean we get subs copies before Christmas??

I'd imagine that yet again, if there were any chance of forumites pushing a Christmas cover, it'd probably been left too late in the year to do one anyway.

Sorry Darran,

That doesn't make any sense. Surely the 30th November issue would have the christmas cover because it is for December?

I always used to love the christmas magazines. They always had a bit more in them.

Now, the only one I look forward to is Viz!

Yeah, I remember the Christmas issues of Zzap being quite an event.

Can Darran stand behind everyone and shake some sleigh bells while we read it instead?

Agreed. It's actually fashionably late compared to everywhere/everyone else trying to flog Christmas merch in September!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

The other thing to note with Christmas mags or certainly mags with all the big games for Christmas in, the magazine traditionally had January on the cover which is pretty much as past Christmas as you can get :-)
