In Topic: Digital game magazines 12 issues for $12 from Future Publishing

20 April 2021 - 07:52 PM

So about a week after I made an account on retro game subscription management site I got an email today about Covid delays and that they’re giving me access to the digital version to make up for it.

Yeah, I'm really not expecting the same shipping speed for a magazine as I would merchandise purchased from UK retailers. I mean, for one, we didn't even pay shipping for the magazine, nor was what we paid enough to make free shipping realistic.

I don't know about a scam, but my confirmation from Retro Gamer does say I should have my issue by March 18. About a month late now. I found the Retro Gamer confirmation in my email (not sure how I missed it two months ago) and was able to register my account on their subscription management site, and I was able to extend my subscription a month, since they're out of stock for the missing issue.

 

Who knows if the issue is really lost though. With this coming from the UK it could still be on it's way, what with how slow the USPS has been.

 

I also lowered the limit on my Privacy.com virtual card I used for this, so they can't charge me again. Scam or not, I'm not resubscribing to something I've missed an issue of, and will likely miss all the issues of.

circle doesnt work with red card

I think the only thing that doesn't work is earning Circle rewards when using a red card to pay. So offers like this should work fine, you just won't get money back.

feel like the whole endeavor of trying to get discs back is a complete loss/waste for them at this point
game came out like 3 months ago and its constantly on sale for 35 bucks or 30. they will have to throw them in a warehouse and throw away the key

i still have mine just in case but have no interest in playing it at this point

They can hold on to everything and in a years time, reuse the same discs, cases, and art and just print out new "GAME OF THE YEAR" labels. Slap a new label on the disc, a banner on the box art, and a code for DLC, and just ship them back out to all the stores.
