I actually found quite a few earlier issues at one of the local comic stores, have been meaning to go back and get some, ended up getting a couple of Walking Dead books and have meant to go back and get them. Even though the content can fluctuate I like Retro Gamer as it allows me to get that monthly kick of nostalgia. Can take quite a while for each issues to show up here though, sometimes almost when the next issues comes out.
Jesus Zamora (2 years ago)
Yeah, games magazines aren't really a thing in the States here. Most of them have been replaced by websites, which are now in the throws of being replaced by youtubers and other independent media. Honestly, I can't say I really miss gaming magazines. Save for EGM, they were all bought and paid for by the publishers and NOT to be trusted. The closest we in America came to a retro gaming magazine was Mike Kennedy's RETRO Videogame Magazine, which has turned out to be a dumpster fire as Mike Kennedy shifted focus to trying to scam people with a "new retro console," the failed Retro VGS/Chameleon. Shame, really. This magazine looks boss by comparison, and there's no way it's coming here to the US... EDIT: Hm, didn't see it at Barnes and Noble last time. I might have to take a closer look next time I'm hanging around Miracle Mile...

The metalic blue Zelda cover is amazing

+TheGebs24 Certainly is,
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+Wiitoo Stunning right?!

I was lucky enough to spot it from issue one and have managed to get every issue since (subbed)

Loving the "Seal Of Quality" logo on the Zelda cover and the fold out covers for the DK special and the Sonic anniversary edition... Nice of you to find time for some Sega love!! 😎 Your gaming room is properly branching out Gem, how long has cat fighting been a feature?? 🤔 #meow
Darthadios (2 years ago)
That magazine is very expensive outside of Great Britain. Like I could subscribe it for 12 months that´s 12 issues but that would cost 173€ =/ I have some really old Nintendo magazines from late 80´s and early 90´s.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+Darthadios Yikes!
badfatt (2 years ago)
This has been my favourite magazine for a few years now. I think the best thing about it is the wide variety of topics it covers and I often find myself really enjoying an article on some game or console or developer that I know nothing about and would never go looking for information on otherwise.
Daves GoldenDuck (2 years ago)
I was in Barnes and Noble today and actually saw one. I was thinking of buying it but I did not :(. Looks like an AWESOME magazine though. For your question about MK my favorite is Mario Kart 64
Daves GoldenDuck (2 years ago)
I didn't have the money to spend at the time
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
How come you didn't buy it just out of interest? MK64 is so sick on 4 player too!
BlastMode7 (2 years ago)
I love Retro Gamer. I wish it was more accessible in the states. I like Retro as well, but it's not even close to as good. Plus I love reading about the home PCs that were a lot more popular over there. I was ecstatic when I found out that Barnes and Noble carried it. Sadly, the ones around here are spotty about having it in stock. I'm going to have to track down a physical copy of the Mario Kart and Sonic issues now.
BlastMode7 (2 years ago)
+TheGebs24 Yep, they'll ship. The bummer is that after shipping and the crappy value of the dollar to pound, it comes to a little over $160. : /
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Cool on the download. I bet if you subscribed to the magazine they'd ship it for you?
PettyHateMachine (2 years ago)
It's nice to see people enjoying what we make. Thanks. =)
9ElevenGamer (2 years ago)
The Playstation special is probably my favorite.
9ElevenGamer (2 years ago)
My favorite ummm, probably Resident Evil or X-Com.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+9ElevenGamer Best game?
Jonathan Holt (2 years ago)
I came to the magazine quite late, around issue 102/103 - wish I'd started earlier. I subscribe and get it delivered here in Canada about 2 weeks after it's out in the UK (sometimes 3 weeks...not sure why it takes so long) but I read it cover to cover. It's a great read and full of useful info. I agree it's a pleasure to look at as well - beautifully laid out.
Martin Myre (1 year ago)
TheGebs24 Just subscribed from Canada also!
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
You subscribe? That's brilliant!! Good to know because I'm recommending it to a lot of people in the U.S and Canada 😊😊Thanks Jon

Your enthusiasm is infectious! We love Retro Gamer! Our issue #153 finally arrived last week which features in the Collector's Corner this lass named Gemma...maybe you know her :-)
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Awww thank you! You guys are all amazing and thank you for the support 💖

I don't know for certain, but the reason RG might have strayed away from doing "novelty" covers (with the fold outs etc) could be down to the current state of print. I'm not sure if you have heard (maybe an idea for a video if you used to buy it) but RG's sister magazine, Play, has published it's last physical issue, just a couple of months after X-One (from the same publisher) folded. And globally, cos you mentioned circulation in other countries, it seems to be that we're seeing less and less printed mags on shelves. It's obviously heartbreaking, but it's also the way media is going unfortunately. I'm glad though that RG still exists in its physical form, though I will admit that I buy it digitally (maybe something to point out to those that can't get it in shops), the fact that it IS an actually magazine, that you can read on the loo, is very retro in itself.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
I totally agree that I'm also glad it exists. Is be gutted if they ended it
Dragoon Lagi (2 years ago)
i try to buy it every month but it's very expensive here it's 10 euro for one magazine. but i love that magazine so much, also still so great that you was in the last issue, and i sold my legend of zelda one when i wa in need of money, i so regret that :(
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Yikes €10!!!
Gashead Steve (2 years ago)
Oh Gem, that Sonic episode looks fantastic :)

I wish i would have started collecting retro gaming magazine back when it started, but I don't even own one of those magazines. they look really informative about classic gaming. I like to read things like that, the history of classic gaming. I have this book called the history of video games and its a really good read. theirs like 1000 pages of text and no pictures and was able to read the entire thing in like 3 weeks, reading it like 5 hours a day. lol. I might go to barnes and noble soon and pickup a copy of retro gaming just to see if its everything you say it is. lol.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Hey let me know what issue number they have in 😊😊Thank you
PJ HALL- E (2 years ago)
I wish u were older, sorry but true lol. Now am 32yrs old nd as a child I collected every magazine going and we even had brilliant gaming programs on tv. Yet I believe if you were older you would of made tv gaming.......someone snap Gemma up and get her on TV lol
PJ HALL- E (2 years ago)
+TheGebs24 but you could of been on tv when I was a kid lol, but means I wouldn't have this you channel to watch.....damb either way am missing out haha

You've seen me on twitter ;) but if you don't remember then yes. It will be double hard.

Estaran (2 years ago)
Some years ago they started to translate the English issue into German. (http://www.emedia.de/retro-gamer/158/321) Now we are able to get "our own" version of the magazine, although I still slightly prefere the English one because those covers are so much cooler!
terry hawkins (2 years ago)
awesome collection gemma x
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Cheers Terry
Gengar Phantom (2 years ago)
they look great, great condition, here in America the one i used to have was the one publish in Mexico, it was in spanish because at that time i was living in central America so you had access to nintedo magazine mexico and also a publication that came from spain, those were the only two gaming magazines i see back then.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Well I can't read Spanish but I would have brought it just because lol
Natasha Connor (2 years ago)
I actually want to fondle that Zelda cover 8D x
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
It has that appeal I must say 😂
Natasha Connor (2 years ago)
I absolutely adore Mario Kart :) this video was wonderful darling x
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Thanks hun. MK is the Fookin best! Lol
Mark Dillon (2 years ago)
I've always liked how Retro Gamer followed the old black and white reviewer pictures model of the old 8 bit magazines Zzap64 and Crash! Zzap64 was my staple diet back in the day.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+Mark Dillon Ahhh I remember Zzap64 too!!!
BUTCHER 69 (2 years ago)
I was thinking the other day funny enough in 2008 I bought a boxed excellent condition super Mario world snes with a boxed link to the past and boxed Mario kart and it cost me £45 of eBay oh I miss bargains lol
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+BUTCHER 69 Mad how things have changed right Butcher?!!
BUTCHER 69 (2 years ago)
Gebs have you ever given a thought to doing a podcast where you talk to other gamers?
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+BUTCHER 69 Butcher that's a great idea but I don't have the time. With my full time job, three videos per week on here, Juicy Game Reviews and all of my social media management I'm outta energy :) BUT I could find time to guest on one. I've done a few in the past but couldn't commit long term :)
Matt Rogan (2 years ago)
I'll have to start buying this every month! I bought the street fighter special off eBay.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+Matt Rogan Nice one Matt
jeemstoybox (2 years ago)
Hmm only got a few left myself lost a lot in a flood a few years ago, anyway in reverse order...Issue 100 ......Issue 97 : bought this one for the History of Dragon Quest feature......Issue 85 : this one for The Secret of Mana  feature......Issue 36 :  this for Pitfall (Atari2600)....Issue 1 : love the Mastertronic feature, bought so many of them back then for £1.99 (a month's pocket money back then).......What was worse was the stack of Superplays I also lost at the time, had 40+ at least :(
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Sorry to hear about the flood 😔
Matt Rogan (2 years ago)
Where do you buy retro gamer magazine from?
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Any major supermarket
8bitmusicchicken (2 years ago)
Woah! Those are some kick ass magazines!!! Just curious though, on the Sonic one I that a map of one of the stages? Maybe the first one?
8bitmusicchicken (2 years ago)
+TheGebs24 That's awesome! After playing it so many times, it looks so strange seeing the whole thing like that all at once. Great first stage though. (:
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
I believe it's the first one
Retro Gamer Thomas (2 years ago)
Great vid Gemma, I love retro gamer and collect like you it's awesome, I think one of my favourite mk games is double dash on the GameCube, I run little tournaments from my game shed in my garden and that seems to be one of the most popular ones.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Hi Tom. Thanks for watching. I'm not sure if I have that issue ya know
A. J. Powell (2 years ago)
Haha, someone else who didn't open the Mario advent Windows!
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Yep!! Lol
hazy33 (2 years ago)
I own ALL issues of Retro Gamer including the cover discs from the early ones. You are nothing. Do you hear me, NOTHING!! ;)
hazy33 (2 years ago)
+TheGebs24 retirement! How dare you!! Oh and don't forget the Retro DVD that was released after the initial publisher went bust. Contained some stuff that at the time would have been in future issues.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
Then technically you are in retirement and I am still upcoming in my quest. 😁😁😁
LifeSpiller79 (2 years ago)
Great great magazine. The part that sucks is it's mad expensive. To ship to the states is ridiculous. I wish it was cheaper I'd buy them in a second. I only own one.
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+Lifespiller79 I was in 153 😊
LifeSpiller79 (2 years ago)
+TheGebs24 shipping was like $6 or $7. Still to get the one was worth it. What was your issue again?
TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+Lifespiller79 Yeah it $15!! Crazy!
Jay Centeno (2 years ago)
Beautiful collection. Makes me wish I still had my Nintendo Power collection. Fun stuff.

TheGebs24 (2 years ago)
+Jay Centeno There's nothing worse than gaming regret lol
Jay Centeno (2 years ago)
Treasure them for me. (sniffle) Still regret not having them anymore.

+Jay Centeno Ahhh Nintendo Power!!! I have a couple of issues floating about :)
