Pixel Perfect Gaming Reviews our Vintage Games Book

Bill Loguidice's picture

Pixel Perfect Gaming has posted a very nice review of our book, Vintage Games: An Insider Look at the History of Grand Theft Auto, Super Mario, and the Most Influential Games of All Time. Right now it appears on their front page, but here's the direct link to the review article for when it gets bumped down. I won't spoil what the reviewer has to say, but I certainly can't complain on this one. Don't forget, Vintage Games is still available from retailers worldwide, has its official page here, and an Italian edition here. Enjoy!

Hmm...

I wonder if he liked the book? You couldn't tell by his review. :-) Yeah, seriously though, he really REALLY seemed to like the book! A great review.

It's good to see that "Vintage Games" still has legs, as opposed to a big opening, then fading away in popularity.

I'm quite pleased that sales seem to be steady. I even checked Amazon UK and it's holding up well there as well. I'll be very curious to see the next sales statement from the publisher. Luckily, the book is one of those types that doesn't really become out-of-date, which should help keeping it in active circulation.

Indeed, Bill, I think our

Indeed, Bill, I think our book has serious "collector's value" just because of all the unique images. It's not like Pac-Man or Doom are somehow going to become irrelevant; I predict their historical significance will only increase with time. It's humbling to think that 50 or 100 years from now, some scholar might dust off a copy of our book and cite it in a paper of some sort, long after we're dead.

Great book

Hey everyone, just wanted to drop in and say thank you for taking the time to write the book, I indeed did like the book, it is amazing, the memories it brought back. It was just fun great read and one that kept me up many a night reading and reminiscing about times that were simpler it seems.
I am still in awe that you guys were able to write this book in the first place, there is just an insurmountable amount of information that is extremely well laid out and presented. You guys rock.

Thanks for dropping in

Thanks for dropping in TriVerse. I'm most proud that we were able to do all this in only about three months. I would have loved twice that to make it even better, but you never get that from publishing companies. They always need it yesterday, because they have very specific sales schedules to get books out in the distribution channels.
