To my understanding, subs start with the second issue. I think we've got something to get the first at a lower price, or are planning on it, but don't hold me to that-- I'm not the one running things, and there were some last minute shake-ups (this was supposed to be announced sooner) that might have changed something.

Two questions, do you have a "street date" for #2? Will the next issue be available via Mag Cload as well?

I don't have an exact date, no, but I know it's supposed to go to the printers this week. So... sometime this week, possibly early next?

As for MagCloud, yeah, but you're going to pay a LOT more for the single issue than going with a sub (unless you're digital only). Like, 80 percent savings, I'm told.

Attached the cover for this issue, too, for those who want to see it.

Question

Do I get via MagCloud again? If yes, how does that work with my sub?

I think you should be getting an e-mail about it. If you don't see anything today, give me the name on your sub and I'll look into it.

Got my issue! Thanks!

Anyone know how to get iBooks to show two PDF pages in landscape mode?

Also article idea! How about a catch up with Gary and Allison from Nintendo Week?

Hmm, interesting idea... I wonder if we'd be able to track them down. I'll try to bring it up to the crew. Not sure whether it will make this issue, but maybe next?

I am really super-excited about the third issue... I think this is going to be huge. I wish I could say more, but... look forward to it!

So people have gotten the print edition of the 2nd issue? When are we supposed to receive them? I haven't gotten mine.

I know they were mailed out, but I'm not sure when they arrive. I don't have mine yet, for what it's worth.

Ah I see, so it's likely OK then. The bi-monthly period that these issues cover is mainly what was confusing me. It is not clear (and it is hard to guess) what the delivery schedule is.

Yeah, this one came out a bit later in the month, too, as we were dealing with the subscriptions thing and all. That might have us offset for a bit.

Okay, I was mistaken-- I thought they were mailed out, but... well, here's what I've got:

Quote:
Hey there, Force fans! We apologize for the continued delays in the arrival of printed copies of the magazine – it was our understanding that they would have all been delivered by now, so we'll have to talk with our printing/distribution company to find out what's going on. We're frustrated too. To hopefully make up for the wait a bit, and because you've all been kind about it, I'd like to announce that we'll be giving away free games all throughout this upcoming week! We've got four recently released Nintendo titles that we'll be handing out to four lucky NF Print subscribers – so if you've been waiting around for your Issue #2 to arrive, you're in the running to win. Check back tomorrow for the first game giveaway! (And once again, we apologize about the delivery delay. We'll find out what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again for Issue #3).
Quote:
Well, well, look what just showed up at the NF home office! The printed issues do exist! (And were delivered on a Sunday morning?) This is the bulk order of extra copies we ordered to send out to late subscribers who missed the cut-off date a couple of weeks ago, as well as to sell as individual copies for anyone who just wants #2 by itself. (More details on that a little later.) But its arrival here means everyone else's individual copies really should be getting to your mailboxes very soon. Once again, sorry for the delays! And free game giveaways start tomorrow!

So. I'm guessing you're all scrambling to do a Earthbound feature, considering the Nintendo Direct annnouncement.

Not that I'm aware of; we pretty much knew what we were doing with this issue when the news came; more likely, we'll have the feature sometime coming up, or closer to when it comes out.

Assuming there is a feature; I can't imagine we wouldn't do one, but at the moment, I don't think anything specific is planned.

Sorry to bump, but issue 3 comes out digitally this Friday and will probably be mailed out about that time, too, I believe.

This one is going to be huge; check out the attachment for the cover.

There's going to be a huge Super Mario Bros. movie feature that is going to blow some minds, and we've even got an exclusive reveal of the Konami Code in Contra IV in Classified Information. =)

Is good issue!

I hope the comics scarcity (relatively speaking) is a temp thing though...

I assume you mean the bigger multi-page comic?

Yeah, we're working on something new there, don't worry.

I had a weird dream one time where this started appearing on magazine shelves, exactly where the Nintendo Powers used to be. As if to fill the gap in the realest and most tangible of senses.

Dreams can be a cruel tease sometimes.

Hmm, strange. If you keep having trouble by Monday, let me know and I'll try to look into it.

Issue 5 is available now! Also, today is the last day to make a purchase and be entered to win a Nintendo 2DS! (One is being given away for every 100 orders received.)

We've also got an Earthbound review by Brawl in the Family's Matthew Taranto, a nifty dual-cover featuring Pokemonx and Pokemony, and an exclusive interview with WayForward's Shantae creator, Matt Bozon.
