Issue 1

Saw issue one in WH Smiths and pounced on it. I couldn't believe someone was actually producing a mag dedicated to old games! Have been a subscriber since issue two.

Spotted issue 1 in Hartlepool Gamestation, but I nearly missed issue 2 thanks to Live rescheduling without warning! Spotted that one in Durham MVC.

Luckily i was there just before issue 1 came out, on a few retro forums and i heard about it on there and bought a copy online soon after. Wish i had bought a few more issue 1's of course but its easy to look back now !

Been here since Issue 1 (spotted in Smiths & attracted like a magnet!). Also have Retro Survival CD. New mag is better than ever, I wasn't sure about no CD but the content more than makes up for it. I subscribe so paying around £3.50 per issue. Keep up the FANTASTIC work guys!!

:D :D :D :D

My Brother saw issue 5 and got it for me. I subscribed after reading it, then got issues 2-4 off eBay.

Issue 2. I found it in my local shop completely by accident. I've been with it ever since!

I was in the know about Retro Gamer before issue one - just a case of right time, right place. Some guy named Martyn Carroll was speaking to Allan Bairstow about it and I over-heard then butted in. I then wrote from issue two through to err... 12 or 13 I think. Then it was reborn and I started writing for it again until the present issue on the shelves.

My little claim to fame, such as it is :-)

Issue 1 for me too, I had a good heads-up thanks to a couple of retro forums. I really can't imagine missing an issue now, it's one of the few magazines in recent years I genuinely look forward to reading as opposed to 'flicking through'.

I started on Issue 5. I did see Issue 1 in my local newsagents but unfortanately didn't realise exactly what it was. I figured it would be a load of crap, oh boy was I wrong.

I'm one of them poor buggers who is after the early issues (1 to 4) but will probably not get them due to the obscene prices on eBay.

I've only missed one or two of the old RG magazine, and I have every one of the new RG and have just subscribed (yesterday).
