Went to about six newsagents around the Heathrow area yesterday. Didn't see a single ShFIII cover. :( But did pick up a nice Valkyria Chronicles one.

So it seems that so far, anybody who's tried to find one hasn't been able too.

*sadface*

Damn. I was hoping for some happy news in that area.

I may be in the states. But -m not too far from Manhattan. Wonder if there are any international news stands out there anywhere.

Wow I´m disappointed! :( I was hoping that, at least, someone form the UK would have got more than 1 mag with the SF3 cover right now.

I´ve tried that link from Ashely, got no answer even though I sent the message on the same day (it was still on stock, or at least the image didn´t have "sold out").

The chances of someone, that's not from UK or have acess to that magazine, are getting slimmer by the day :(

I did the same thing. No reply for me either :(

Unless we start seeing some on eBay. May be a little bit too early for that though.

Tried another Tesco, and decided to call Game & Gamestation in case they happened to have any in (though they don't sell mags anymore). No luck.

Argh!

Had a look in 3 newsagents on my lunch break, but they didn't even stock the mag.

Cullsoft managed to get a copy of the Magazine with SF3 on the cover. We all had a gander at it at our SOUK meeting :)


Surprised he hasn't mentioned getting it on here.

Lucky bastard!
Where'd he find it?
Just the one?!

Argh!
Must phone more shops.

Say hooray for the M40 Oxford services. :)

And sadly no, I didn't find any others. :( Wound up stopping at most of the service stations on the way to and from Liverpool, and although they all had GamesTM in stock none of the others had the SHF3 one.

However, I've told anyone who I'd already asked to look out for the magazine that I know others are also interested, so if they happen to spot copies I'm still interested in those, so don't think I've stopped the hunt just because I've got my copy! ;)

There's a chap here who doesn't seem too pleased with his ShFIII cover. Might be worth offering a trade with him.

Cull, that lucky bastard :p Good find mate!

I finally got a reply back from the link Ashley supplied. Of course, no such luck there :(

I had a brief spark of excitement today when I went into Chapters (kinda like Borders, r.i.p.) and saw a GamesTM. Issue 98 though :p

Thanks mate - have contacted him.
If I only manage to get one copy, I'll have looksie & a scan, and then pass it on to you Ash so you can send it to Camelot (or I'll send it myself if you prefer).

I might be okay, actually. I managed to get myself a copy and I'm currently negotiating with someone else for the second.

Took a different route into work today past 4 newsagents. Still haven't seen a SF3 cover.

Well done mate. Hope you succeed.
The chap at Midlife Gamer has very kindly agreed to let me have his copy, so if you don't secure the second copy for Camelot, let me know and I'll still happily donate mine.

Am still on the hunt for further copies for other peeps here. Got a friend looking on Portland for me today, there's a couple of co-ops there and a local shop. Fingers crossed!



Kosh: You'll have to try places on the way to fishing spots. Big place like Manch has gotta have a copy floating around somewhere!

Congrats guys!! Especially you Moogie. Your heart and soul have been poured into this site so you should definitely h?e a copy.

I still remember how, shortly after my husband died and you were still doing the contests, there was one where the answer was Otrant. Even managed to win a prize on that one too. :)
