Picked this up in Easons today. Seems to have a lot of content from the past year's Retro Gamer monthly mag. I understand that this is the nature of these bookazines but being a subscriber only for the last 16 months or so, I was hoping for older content from past mags.
Still a great bookazine though. Enjoyed the opening features on each console.

I realised the same. An expensive disappointment.

Darran you may want to get that advert updated, unless it actually does contain a collectors guide for the Megadrive and SNES.

Once again like the Amiga book, this isn't available in the couple of WHSmiths I've looked in, the publisher is getting worse getting these things out to the public, its pushing it at £10 but to pay postage on top just to get hold of a copy is annoying, you should offer subscribers the bookazines for £9.99 and free postage.

I'd much rather they had a subscriber option to get all of the mags and not just the monthlies.

It'd probably work in their favour, since just now I don't buy all the bookazines, only the ones (like this one) that particularly interest me. If I had a blanket sub covering them all for an extra quid or so a month, I'd do that.

Agreed. I was disappointed to miss out on the Amiga Book.

Sounds harsh but didnt people just click on 'buy' on the website to get one ? Far far easier than trekking round town searching for it. Yeah postage might be a few quid more but saves time as you dont have to search everywhere for it.

Well, shouldn't have to really should you? If postage is £2, its another 20%.

Unusually, Smiths at Marylebone don't have it - still have the Amiga one though.
