    Default retro gamer magazine

    Hi, where do you purchase your issues at? I live in chicago and the only place I notice them at are at barnes and noble but they are sold out of issue 50 and I cant find it anywhere else.

    Would anyone have that issue for sale?

    The ONLY places I have seen Retro Gamer for sale is Barns and Nobles and Borders Books and each month they only stock like 3 issues. I stop by each store the last and first weekend of each month and I always seem to get a copy.
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    Same here in NJ. I've seen them sometimes in the Barnes and Nobles in the Clifton Commons. It seems like they only carry only two copies at a time . It's either that or order the mag online.

    Here in Ottawa, I get my copy at a little independent magazine store called Maison de la Presse. We Canadians can also find copies at Chapters, but in all cases they have very few copies on the shelf; never more than two or three...

    My local Microcenter store is usually a couple months behind, issue-wise. I usually have to hit several Barnes & Noble locations just to find the latest copy. Some stores get it in, then the next month they don't bother. It's pretty hit-and-miss around here.

    Great magazine and because it is retro I don't mind not having the current issue. The price is abysmal though. I rarely pick up the mag. It's $11.99 an issue at Microcenter, and to subscribe online (to US) is $155.00+; by comparison you can get a subscription to 'Edge' magazine for about half that...

    In eastern Canada the only place I've seen it is at Chapters, and I've only seen it there once

    Issue 51 is great, I just wish I had more. Issue 51 is recent, so I'm hoping that means they're going to make it a regular thing. Either that or they only order a few copies and it gets picked up fast.

    I order it yearly (yeah, $150/yr) but it is for 13 issues, not 12, so it's about the same as on the newsstand.
