Re: The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x ... available now from Golem Books!

Just thought I'd share a little Facebook alert I posted earlier today with the Retro Gamer forum faithful: 53226282_1212137492282090_4917887744631373824_n.jpg We're down to the last few copies of the limited hardcover edition of The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x here at Golem Books, so shake a leg and g...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

:oops: Yep, well, there really wasn't anything I could do about that unfortunately, due to the timing - I'm sure he'll realise that if / when he gets his hands on a copy. It's not as though it actually benefits me in any way whatsoever having it there now. And at least he can rest assured that anyon...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

That's the thing, I genuinely didn't know it was Ste's work, and I had absolutely no idea that the little symbol at the top was his sig - I just thought it was part of Capcom's original Ghosts 'n Goblins title from 30+ years ago, and since I was just using the same writing style to form the title of...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

Yeah, it would definitely have been easier to have dealt with it privately... never mind though, all sorted now and hopefully I've managed to reassure everyone who had their say on Twitter that it was a genuine misunderstanding. Still, it all goes down to experience, and besides, once the new covers...

Re: The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x ... available now from Golem Books!

I have a handful of copies (about 30... so that's six handfuls I suppose) of the very rare, very beautiful and very shiny hardcover limited edition of The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x available, priced at £29.99 a pop plus p&p. To nab one of these last remaining copies while you can, head over to Golem...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

Wow - I've had a heck of a time over the past few days dealing with the fallout on Twitter over my attempted use of the GnG loading screen! My first (very bruising) Twitter storm! :( Feel free to check out some of the comments and my responses to them on Twitter, or for a less toxic summary you can ...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

Thanks for the comments guys. Unfortunately I may have hit a bit of a snag with the cover - I didn't realise this particular version (the Amstrad CPC loading screen) was Ste Pickford's work, and it looks like I may have caused some offence by modifying it. No malice was intended but I do appreciate ...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

Some nice suggestions there! I'm actually keeping the format as close to that of The Book of the Game of the Film as possible, so that the two books will serve as perfect companions for one another (basically covering the whole "officially licensed" gamut between them) - so it'll be one page per coi...
