The lights are on
Please bear with us as we have launched in beta so you may notice a bug or two. The best thing you can do is let us know right here in the Site Feedback Forum. Have a question or comment regarding the new site? This is your place.
I just renewed my gameinformer subscription through gamestops poweruprewards. I did everything right but it will not let me reqd my magazine. Every time I try it tells me I have to subscribe again. I am pissed off. All I want to do is read my digital content in peace!!
Can you post a few more details about the problem you are seeing?
If you haven't already, you need to link your gameinformer.com account to your subscription. You should be prompted to do this automatically when you try to read the magazine.
I too, am having problem.
You want details... You got 'em: My app absolutely refuses to acknowledge my subscription. After logging in and relogging in about 1,500 times... finding out that your website won't allow me to paste in my subscriber number on an iPad (it went into the clipboard just fine, but heaven forbid I should be able to get a Paste option! I had to get a piece of paper, write it down, and manually type it in lest I fling the iPad across the room in frustration)... having to search for the subscription multiple times... finally having the site find it and getting the site to acknowledge it... the app STILL refuses to acknowledge it!
And I thought having to stare at the iPad while issues download because should the screen turn off with one byte to go the download will stop and I'll have to start again from scratch was mind-numbingly tedious.
Oh, and in the midst of this will-to-live-sucking experience the MyAccount page in the Game Informer App decided to error out so now I can neither log in nor out nor do anything else with it but shriek at it in righteous fury. Let me guess... I will need to uninstall the app... reinstall the app... and suffer through the download process from hell for the old issues yet again. Awesome.
This is why things should be fully tested BEFORE they are released to the public.

Does anyone at GameInformer care about those of us who are paying for subscriptions? No replies... No help... Still no magazines. You took our money, please let us access our magazines. :(
I sent you a PM about this. Hopefully we can resolve this issue.
My digital subscription is also not working. I just renewed and am logged in. It will let me access previous issues, but only gives me the option to buy the latest issue.
