Looks like my #195 arrived to me here in the states this past Friday the 5th, so I'm still averaging about 3 weeks most months. It boggles my mind how anyone in Europe gets these issues after me, but I guess truth is often stranger than fiction.

Has Issue 195 finally arrived in Germany? I'm still waiting for it.

Not for me, I've ordered a replacement (yet again). Since I have ordered so many replacements they now write:

"I have also placed your subscription on to monitored delivery going forward - this means that future issues will be sent out in plain envelopes to see if this resolves the delivery problems you are experiencing ."

They still act as if this is an isolated problem with just my subscription. I think they do not look at this forum although I have once pointed the subscription-team to this thread. Basically I would advise anyone to keep ordering replacements if their issues do not arrive. It seems only increased cost will make them change the delivery company.

All the issues with delivery made me not to re-subscribe. What a pity, it's such a great mag otherwise

So, just almost five weeks after the store date, issue 195 has indeed arrived on Southern Germany (Bavaria, to be exact). I'm told some people in the North got theirs Tuesday last week. Would be intersting to know why there's now so much difference in the same country as well.

Anyway, back to absurdly long waiting times it is, after just 2 issues of surprisingly fast deliveries... great.

#197 popped when polling my mailbox on Friday (16th), which should be 28 days after my previous (utterly logical). As of lately my sub copy has been around 9 days ahead my newsagent.
(BTW, EDGE is not stocked locally.)

Has anybody in the US received #197? (Shenmue) #198 was just announced.

FYI, I just received #198 (Genesis Mini), which is pretty good for a September 3 release date. However, I still haven't received #197 (Shenmue) and according to the Facebook group, I am not alone. Did any United States customers receive #197?

I am still missing 197 and 198. Mississippi, USA. I'm going to request a replacement 197 if I don't see it in the next week.

Issue 198 finally arrived in SE Asia. Can be improved. Its the 21st century. Also found out that issue(s?) still kept arriving on an old address (of a previous subscription even) so administration can also be improved. Cannot tell if that happened once or more. Address label and all.
