Bought it a few days ago. Any new or revised content in this one?

I've updated as much as I could possibly find and corrected glaring errors (no Load Runner) for example, but there isn't any new content.

The reason for this is because when we did it before there were complaints that people felt they were being forced to buy something for a couple of new articles.

Fair comment and I applaud you for that as a subscriber. This time round I bought it because I felt like I wanted to instead of because I had to. There are a fair number of new forum members since the last one and this fills the gap from the end of the CD version nicely, so I expect it'll sell in good numbers as is.

Bought this the other day in WH Smiths, yes its all content i've got in past retro gamers but enjoy the thick mag and its (ahem) easier to read in the loo rather than taking in 12 issues etc ;)

Seriously i do like the front cover, basic with all the characters on it but works well.

Various other publications do this for various costs. I'm pretty sure Grand Designs magazine used to sell a year's worth of issues for about 20 quid. And then the likes of Macworld put PDFs of the entire previous year's magazines on the covermount for the Christmas issue.

I have a back issues disc of CGI magazine (I think, might have been one of the other CG mags) that was a freebie on the cover.

I reckon these things should be the free gift for subscribers - I'd like the previous year's mags sent out on disc at the end of each year. Would cost very little to do.

I've been to 4 different WH'smiths so far, and none of them have heard of it. i have shown them the ad in the back of this months Retro Gamer. And they just look at me blankly.
