2 bad issues in a row for me, I hate RPGs just as much as I hate platformers.

I don't think the RPG issue going ahead this time around, maybe too many people had issues and they decided to break it up over the next set of issues due in the future, as its been awhile since the next one and suspect this is what has happened, as in agreement with you, RPG issue would of been a death sentence to those who hate or don't play RPG's. The cover is very nice this issue, so lets hope its as good inside as the outside :)

The RPG issue is already out, has been for a couple of weeks, I have already read it.

You probably haven't heard much because several of us said we weren't too much into issue 3 because it was focused on RPG's.  So, it sort of came and went for many of us for that very reason.  There are several posts in this thread about it and Jokeontheworld, who is on the editorial team for the magazine, added some comments about the magazine in general and the third issue as well.

Exactly, not only was it a whole issue devoted to RPGs but also had a very heavy emphasis on modern games, even more so than previous issues. The cover was once again portraying a modern game too and I still find the use of modern games on the cover of a magazine called Retro absolutely baffling.

I'm wondering why they keep changing the style of the main logo , I personally don't like this, it should remain its original state, but it seems to be taking a lift here in content, are they still watermarking the hell out their digital versions? :21:

Yes, the watermarks are still there.  I wish they were positioned so they would not overlap with the text of the articles.

I received an update a few days ago from the original Kickstarter campaign of this magazine. Most of it was just about an early bird special for renewing your subscription for year two.

They did mention something else though that I thought was interesting, they are going to be launching another kickstarter later this month for that 2nd year of the magazine. Seems a little odd to go that route again but I guess we will see. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to renew or not. My main concern is if I choose to renew now and take advantage of the price discount, am I missing out on any KS exclusive extras that I would get if I waited and backed it again?

[member=5080]ReadRetro[/member]  if you see this, can you explain how this is going to work, and what the 2nd KS campaign is for?
