Retro Game Books & Literature |OT| - Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high!

I’ve seen some complaints on Amazon that Supercade has screenshots of emulated games and most of the photos are of fairly low resolution.

I ordered a cheap used copy to check it out. I’m kind of a sucker for old arcade photos and videos.

RE The current’t running Third Editions kickstarter:

First stretch goal has been announced and it’s “The Work of Taro Yoko: From Drakengard to NieR: Automata”.

As a massive Taro fan I am thrilled. Apparently he (Taro Yoko) even wrote the forward for it.

Probably late to the party but I found out Pat Contri is currently working on a SNES Guidebook. Would love to pick up both books sometime in the future.

UPDATE: Pre-order is now available on the book.

Backed it, but really unhappy with how they ship things. All my books from them come in a standard box with just one wrapping of bubble wrap with the corners all banged up. Really wish they would get those plastic corner protectors that a few other book sellers use these days, especially for their expensive/limited editions.


#26

Probably best to raise it with them. They are pretty responsive from what I recall. I’d kick up fuss too if it came with dented corners and wear.


#27

Yeah, I’m gonna. Been putting it off because I just haven’t had the time but have had the box/gamecube book sitting right next to my computer monitor since it arrived so I deal with it. Seeing the big red “FRAGILE HANDLE WITH CARE” sticker on a crushed box is kinda amusing in it’s own right.


#28

You know what? I’ll raise the issue too once the Kickstarter gets approved.


#29

I just never know if it’s an issue with me being too caring about condition. Didn’t even know about those corner protectors for books till I started ordering things directly from other sites and not just through amazon. Know ROM and Bitmap Books both use them and they are amazing.


#30

Just wanted to say I got around to messaging Geeks-Line about my damaged GameCube book and got a response within the hour requesting pictures of the damage, which I sent and then got another response within 30 minutes saying they would be sending another one tomorrow.

I still wish I didn’t have such a problem with condition since it is a constant problem in this shipping based world but wanted to make sure to give them props for such good customer service.


#31

Sweet! Glad to hear they were able to help you out. I have just finished raising the issue about their postage/shipping so hopefully they’ll take it into consideration for next year’s SNES Anthology launch.


#32

I may mention/request the corner protectors in the comments of the kickstarter. It looks like a few other people have brought up shipping conditions already though so seeing if any of them get a response as well first.
