I haven't seen it in Gamestation yet. If they don't have it in by the weekend I will probably order it online.

Was very impressed with it, glad there isnt a Retro Gamer vs Retro Fusion war or anything. Like others have said its great as it helps fill the gap !

A lot of the articles surprised me, didnt think i would be keen on the A team feature (no offence Koops) but it was very good, the Star Wars one really brought a tear to my eye seeing that old stuff again in print.

I think the two mags can live alongside each other well. I love Retro Gamer as its more game based rather than hardware like the original one was i thought but RF can also bridge a gap of other articles which probably arent 'game' enough to get into RG.

Congrats to all

Thanks for the feedback chaps, and thanks Darran for not deleting this thread.

Be cool to hear from those of you who have not bought the magazine yet and if you do intend to get it, or if not why you won't be buying it.

Cheers.

Hello,

Can anyone tell me where I can order the 1st issue of Retrofusion Magazine, as the Gamestation in Manchester is only small and they said when I rang them, they don't really stock magazines. I usually go to Smiths, but can't see it being in there. So any websites would be good :lol: Am off to play my new Sims 2 game on the PS2, my Dad has brought home, let's hope it lasts longer than the first version.........

I'm thinking of making a special journey today to get it (assuming I can get back home early enough).

Will there be any subscription offers?

Don't worry Darran, I've subscribed to Retro Gamer (got my confirmation letter through yesterday). The only way I'd stop reading Retro Gamer is if it either stopped being sold again (which I hope it won't!) or if EA bought it up and started featuring nothing but Fifa games in it.

Picked up a copy this morning in Gamestation Crewe - they had about 10 copies in.
Till wouldn't scan it though - the manager had to fiddle about codes.
Looks good. Will be reading later!

Yeah thats him, the b*st*rd..!!!
I dont care about the ultimate games, or indeed any of the games just the boxed 128k I want.. I remember buying one from currys for £50.00 when they were outing them all and it went "missing" when I split from the ex "thing" Grrrrrrr.
There are somethings you just don't do to a man, touch his car or his games collection are top of the list :evil:
