I don't know about everyone else on here, but I'm a subscriber of RG magazine :)

I have to say, it was good to see RCM in issue 57. It shows that RG are supporting all those who put on events etc.

I have spoke to Darran at Retro Gamer again today and hopefully we will have another bit in the news section before our next event.
I will email him shortly with information.

I've subscribed now and saw the Byte Back mention last months issue.

New one has arrived....Looking forward to reading about Mario Kart as it's one of my favourite SNES games

Of course if they'd actually printed the website URL it may have generated more ticket sales... And no mention at all in the latest issue is somewhat disappointing!  >:(

I know what you mean Mat, I think Darran may have way too much on, I don't think things get checked properly.
I expected to see Byte Back in the same area again with the website details too . . . but no, nothing!

You're not wrong - I don't know who proof-reads the mag but they want sacking. There were half a dozen grammatical errors or typos in the R-Type article alone this month!

Don't get me wrong, I love the mag and the latest issue is one of the best for a while, but I'm a bit pissed off about no mention of the event, and the attention to detail is definitely lacking...

I love the mag too but . . . maybe they need more staff but sales prohibit that?
I don't know what the sales figures are these days? Im sure it is still fairly good though.

I would be willing to contribute something to it if needs be? Im sure quite a few people on here alone would do the same?

I'd be more than happy to help with proof reading etc....

I don't have the knowledge of most people in RCM but I still love my hobby and would do what ever I can to improve things.

I freelance for Retro Gamer and can tell you now that the staff of the magazine are under a lot of pressure - remember that there's basically Darran and Stuart Hunt, and that's it - I think they even have to share their designer/proof reader with other Imagine Publishing magazines.

Darran has never told me what numbers the magazine shifts each month (and Imagine itself refuses to reveal monthly readership figures) but when you consider it's been running for over 40 issues since Live Publishing closed down and Imagine picked it up, I'd guess that it's doing enough business to be worth printing. :)

I have often toyed with the idea of submitting an article about my hobby of repairing arcade PCBs. Dya reckon I should? RG tend to shy away from technical stuff tho.

Was in Smiths earlier today and spotted that the new RG magazine collection no.4 bookazine is out if anyone is interested? It appears to cover best bits from Retro Gamer mag nos 35 - 54. @ £9.99

Had an email about this the other day but completely forgot. I think they make 2 books a year and for £9.95 there worth reading.
