    Default No Quarter - Download?

    Howdy,

    I would love to get my hands on a copy of the latest No Quarter (34) and was wondering if these are these purchasable as downloadable PDFs?

    Cheers!

    Nope. Shame to. I would like to get them on electronic download as well. The more and more i look at the magazines, fanzines and rulebooks i would like to get and already own really makes me wish i had access to them electronically and a eReader of some kind. :-)

    I would like an eDownload option to. I can save them to my iPad or nook. It beats having to lug around a bunch of books and/or magazines.

    Wouldn't it be awesome if PP were the first game company to do an app for their magazine. As someone who carries around his iPad virtually everywhere, I'd love this.

    They are very proactive with Twitter and Facebook, perhaps its on the cards.

    I already stated my favor in this idea above but let me reiterate my thoughts on this.
    I just moved last week. I don't mean i took a day and moved, i mean i took the week to move. Just now got the last two things form the old place. What is still left in the car are my BOXES of my magazine collection.
    eFormat is so the future. Let the future in now. As i was carrying those heavy SOB boxes to the truck i was muttering the whole damn time for an electronic format for my White Dwarfs, NQ's, MARS, and other mags. :-)

    Yeah right now the only thing available is the non liscensed pdfs you can torrent. I try to stay a faithful PP servant by only downloading what I already own in hard copy. I'd gladly throw them out if I could purchase legit copies in digital format though. If not for loyalty to the game, at least they'd be more updated and of higher quality. Even better, they could do something I've seen in a lot of recent Vinyl record releases. You buy the vinyl (in this case, hard copy of the book) and it comes with a coupon for a free digital download. In the case of the records, you get an mp3 player ready version of the kickass drone metal album you just bought while having your hifi version at home. It would really be the same concept with a digital version for taking to your LGS on the iPad, and the physical copy for sitting on your coffee table to be read the other 10 hours of the day. The only reason piracy is so prominent in the world of gaming books is simply because no company really offers a digital solution. Wargamers are a VERY loyal bunch. We'll stop torrenting pdf's of the book as soon as we get a legit one. And gladly too. Most avoid it outright becuase of the shady legality, but if you own a legit copy of something, you ARE allowed to have a digital version. Or maybe that's just movies and music... Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    [edit] unintentional thread necro, sorry mods!

    This would be particularly useful as I'm in the UK and have no real way to get regular NQ here.

    Wait a minute....

    NQ is quite easily accessible. Many local Game Stores carry them, and many online retailers do as well. Wayland Games, for example, has a stock of NQ in any case.

    I've not been able to find any in stores, but then my local isn't great. They sell single issues and I was looking for a sub that they don't have on the web store for the UK.

    I'd be a HUGE fan of this sort of thing; I like to travel light but still have access to the terrain ideas and articles in multiple NQs when I bounce from friends' places to the LGS and then back home. Carrying a bunch of magazines gets annoying. Add in the rulebook and the faction books and it's like being back in school.

    There's already comic book apps where you purchase/download the comic book and use the app to read it. PP could do a similar idea with their content. They could even work in a microtransactional model where they release a couple pages of extra material (terrain tutorials, alternate art cards/full art cards similar to MtG, fluff pieces which would then be released for free later on down the road) every week for a minimal cost in addition to all of their published material.

    Allright, that´s something different then ^^

    Yeah, a sub doesn´t seem to be available in europe, sadly.

    The magazine is about a miniatures game and is largely reliant on visuals. None of which translates to e-readers. Squinting at miniatures-porn on a handheld device is inherently lame and kills most of the point. So, they'd have to do a seperate DL edition...which I can't imagine would be worthwhile or cost-effective.
    I'd rather lose a fun battle than win a boring one. Copy this sig if you are on board with more fun and less drama at tournaments!

    I agree with your first sentence. Your following sentences i don't. Files like this would and do look good on eReaders. We sell many of them at work both in a color and a noncolor format. This would also include the different tablets that are sold as well. I for one, for electronic files, is the only reason i am looking at an eReader. It would be a color one for this purpose. Still don't see a need for a separate DL edition. :-)

    some older issues of NQ are available as PDFs. waste. of. money. the resolution was absolute junk, which is a shame because the visuals are gorgeous and would look awesome in digital displays. I know they were trying to keep the file size low, but I wasted my money on that issue because of the poor quality. digital format is great as long as they retain high image quality.

    Just to say due to the shipping issue I am still waiting for my NQ36 from Wayland Games. So buying NQ that way just isn't an option.

    More than likely I would too. I have a Kindle (well my wife does) but if these types of things were available for download in a high quality PDF or something to that nature I would pony up the money. I have too many mags at home and they just end up getting trashed. I do have a book shelf for almost everything, but I must admit packing them up really isn't fun.

    +100 for e downloads for a Ipad, Iphone, or whatever runs PDF. I'd bite for sure.

    Just wanted to add that I would be all over this as well. I currently have only purchased the NQ issue with unbound rules and the new one with unbound scenarios, but if there was a way to subscribe for a digital version I would put my money down in a heart beat (assuming it was a good quality color pdf). In addition if the rule books and the forces books came with a digital copy as well, I would have spent the extra cash on the hard covers and easily bought all the forces books. For me this would be a huge deal maker.
