How long for GI digital subscription?
 
When I got home from work today, my ass went to Game Informer's site, thinking that I could simply purchase and download December's issue on its own. Don't know why I had that in my head, but apparently you can't. So I opted for a digital subscription through the site. Well, it redirected me to GameStop's website to purchase the digital subscription. So, fine. I bought it.

Well, I went back to GameInformer's site, thinking I now had instant access to the magazine, but after I login and try to view the magazine, I get an error. The emails match up on GI and GameStop. I don't know what gives. Do I have to wait for somebody to activate my subscription? If so, that kind of blows. I've been dying to read the full story as it was intended to be read. I don't want to read any scans people have posted; they're all wacked and out of order. And I've checked both site's FAQs and searched a bit and couldn't find an answer or solution, and couldn't get a hold of anybody through customer service.

Just wondering if anybody here that has a digital subscription can help or provide an answer. Apologies if this was covered elsewhere on this site.

It took me about 48 hours to get access when I first subscribed

:facepalm: Fuck! Well thanks, man. I shall impatiently wait.

Just google it and you can find a HD scan of the whole preview in PDF format to download.

Where would one go to get a physical copy of GameInformer?

A magazine shop in the USA in about a week or two, or you can order it (for a lot of money) from their website and have it shipped anywhere in the world.

Wow that sucks. I stupidly assumed i could just go to a newstand and find it. welp. guess i'll be looking at the out of order scans.

You can go to any Gamestop and pick up a copy of the print edition for something like 4-5 bucks.

Lukeyy19 11-08-2012 09:49 PM

Not until next friday you can't, and only in the US.

Bah, same here. Thought it would be instant access so I registered late. Me and my no-pre-planning. Now I gotta wait.

I know there are free PDFs around but (1) just not the same and (2) If someone does something you like, support it. I did read the summary on your guy's V site and I've got mixed feeling.

Excited to read the full 18 pages. Maybe it'll cross out some of my worries.

Just found out you can through the iPad app.

UK priced, 3 per issue. I didn't know that was possible so I paid the 13 or so to get 12 freakin' issues when I mainly just wanted V cover. :facepalm:

Oh well. Thought I'll give a heads up and it's not too bad, they seem a good magazine so don't mind the 12 issues I guess.

You may get lucky and they'll have another more in-depth preview closer to release (IV had two). They'll also review the game, so that's another thing.
