Retro Gamer magazine is normally £4.99 per issue in-store. If you subscribe through the Magazine Group online, you can get the first 3 issues for only £5!

As far as I know, you can cancel at any time and just pay for those first 3 issues, or you can let your subscription run and then pay the quarterly fees.

I have a subscription to another mag through the Magazine Group, it seems to work well!

nice find. do you cancel through your bank or through the site? If the mags turn out to be crap, i'd like to stop the subscription, if not, i may keep subscribing

ive subscribed to this a few times before, through retrogamer themselves, as they used to have codes in the mag to get 3 issues for £3 - i did this twice so ended up with 6 issues for £6. the magazine is great but not worth a fiver, i dont think any magazine is these days.

might go for this though, with quidco at 15% that would work out at £4.25 for 3 issues which isnt bad at all.

I used to buy to buy this religiously when it used to the to have the cover disc.

However 3 issues of this should cover all the retro content you'll ever need as it's very very repetitive

Repetitive? As in it's got articles about retro games in every month? :P
I love this magazine, it's taken me right back to my childhood. The coverdiscs they had years ago weren't that great so no loss there.
Best magazine since Big K.
Well worth a look at this price.

I think I bought the first issue of this.

Fantastic magazine. Have been reading since issue 1.

oliverreed: What do you mean it's repetitive? OK, so the mag may have one too many Matthew Smith love-ins, but I feel the magazine gets better and better each issue.
#8
I can't see how you get repetitive with Retro Gamer unless you consider Autosport repetitive because it keeps talking about Formula One and the WRC. Judging by the reply that said that though, he hasn't read it in nearly 4 years and only when it was published by a different company and had an entirely different editorial team.

The biggest problem the mag has is getting the readers to write more and more of it, but that's an arguement currently going on at their forum, which is also worth a peek.

Picked up a copy of this a few months back on a snowboarding trip as something to read on way there.... bought every month since then.

Rare I would ever buy any mag at all prior to that! (your sinclair doesn't count as I was a kid then!)

i went for this and also the magazine group have a deal on 360 magazine for £3 for £3 issues (usually £2.79 each). might not be the best 360 mag around, but for £1 an issue its alright.

so altogether it cost me £8 less quidco so around £6.80 for 6 issues of gamer mags. im happy with that.

How many times does one magazine need to cover the Last Ninja series?

Or how wonderful the Dreamcast was?
#12
Didn't this magazine die? I bought a few issues at train stations for INSANE prices around 15£ or so. I thought it was a quite good magazine.

The general Dreamcast-praising almost makes me puke every time I see og hear it. If it was so freakin' good, how come it died so soon?

The controllers sucked - location and length of wire, external rumble paks in this day and age? The games sucked - upscaled ps1 ports, a few crappy sonic games.

1) Sony's devil-like marketing department spreading false lies about how the PS2 would outperform the Dreamcast.. and alot of people bit, hook, line and sinker :/

2) I find the controller to be more comfortable than the PS2 controller, other than the d-pad.. but why would you want to use the d-pad when you have such a fluid analog stick? :O

3) The Sega Dreamcast brought us (I can't think of the technical name at this moment, Google is proving to be no help either,) pressure-sensitive shoulder triggers!

4) Do you think rumble functionality would be built into the ps2 if it wasn't for the success that SEGA made it? :P

5) VMU!! VVVVVMMMMMMMUUUUUUUU!

6) Please provide more details on this upscaled ps1 business please... I'm not personally aware of any, other than the unofficial Bleemcast! project, which brought us higher quality quality versions of old games :P

7) Crappy Sonic games? really? I'm pretty sure most Sonic fans find Sonic Adventure(1/2) to be some of the best Sonic games ever made, probably the only good 3D sonic games.

8) Did you never notice that there was a small clip/groove near the VMU slot at the top of the controller where you can slide the cable into, if you prefered it that way? I personally think it's great having the cable coming from the bottom of the controller, as it doesn't add extra weight to the front, slightly forcing the controller to be tilted torwards your tv, when it's not needed.

9) It died for a few reasons, but the main ones are: Sony's lies prevented alot of the general population supporting the hardware, rampant piracy due it being able to boot copied discs right from retail(though i believe version B of the hardware removed that, but was probably too late by thenm), and SEGA didn't see it as financially viable anymore, as they wanted to move back onto Arcade hardware.

10) ohhhhh, and it was the first console to bring us functional online gameplay(can you deny how much you loved Phantasy Star Online? :P)

Sorry - but the best consoles ever were the 16 bits (Megadrive and SNES). The 8-bits were good too (NES and Master System). So many classics, and addictive games there would be too many to list!

Although I own a Wii and 360 now - the games just aren't the same these days!

During the war...........

You get SNES and NES ports on GAmeboy Advance. I just love playing super mario bros on my way to work. It is the same game, pixel by pixel. You can find pretty much all big titles on Ebay for under a fiver.
And yes, when you say retro gaming I think NES

RG is an awesome mag - its what you need in this day and age, a combination of a history lesson mixed with some awesome interviews.
