Thanks for the heads-up, HSH. I might try and see if my local WHSmiths has a copy so that I can take a look before buying it.

EDIT: Just realised I can look inside the book via that link :) .

That's great - thanks, dude - I'm not certain about getting it as I blew some cash on Witcher 3 today... but I will take a look :) .

Witcher 3 is definitely a good thing to spend your money on. You won't need a new game for months.

The Jagged Alliance one was top notch.

It gained positive reviews and I believe that Mafro picked it up... but personally I have held off from it. There is no doubting that you get plenty of cool artwork to look at, but description and explanation is on the light side.

Hey, you can take a look at every page right now, dude:

I come back after 5 years in the wilderness to find a thread on video gaming books and in 3 pages nobody mentions Trigger Happy by Steven Poole? Along with Game Over it’s practically mandatory reading!

Death by Video Game is not a bad read, either.
