It's Christmas & we want a festive Christmas cover with an Atari, Speccy & C64 under a ruddy big tree covered in snow with all the trimmings, so i say to hell with the casual overseas buyer!

Totally agree. Cant believe someone in Australia or the US who might get the mag a month or two late would be that annoyed if its a Xmas issue. Probably be happy as it'll bring back memories of great old mags back in the 80's at Xmas.

Like you say its a british mag after all and the majority of people buy it in the UK. Sounds like my council where they worry about a small minority rather than the masses !

I believe you'll find they worry about the magazine continuing to exist.

They wouldn't be annoyed, but they would be less likely to buy it I assume.

But they're not to know its the current issue for them unless they've seen the mag before and realise its not local. For all they know, its an old mag that's been lying on the shelf since December, unbought because its rubbish and without a more recent issue for the same reason.

No, no, no. My place of employment is featured as 'Game Over'. Gamer's Paradise indeed :lol:

Its another Retro Remake - Smila would be the man to ask about it.

In the latest issue of Games tm there is an ad just before the retro section - with a little piccy in the corner of the Xmas issue of Retro Gamer.


It DOES have a nice snowy effect on the Retro Gamer logo - and looks very pretty :D
