For the gamers amongst us who like to relax with a good book will already be well aware of Brett Weiss' fantastic gaming guides. The third volume of the Classic Home Video Games series will be released shortly, covering in depth the history behind the glorious gaming years of 1989 and 1990.
Brett's compendiums of gaming knowledge are by far a worthy edition to any gamers bookshelves. His previous editions have detailed the earliest gaming devices known all the way back to 1972 with Ralph Baer's Magnavox Odyssey, following on to cover the golden age of gaming during the 1980s.
The latest addition to the series looks at the highly acclaimed years of gaming with the Sega Mega Drive (or Sega Genesis), the expensive Neo Geo and (elusive to Europe) Turbografx-16. Going into incredible detail, the book offers a review of every game released for these consoles, along with further insight into the history behind these consoles.
The third in a series about home video games, this detailed reference work features descriptions and reviews of every official U.S.-released game for the Neo Geo, Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx-16, the three of which, in 1989, ushered in the 16-bit era of gaming. Organized alphabetically by console brand, each chapter includes a description of the game system, followed by substantive entries for every game released for that console. The video game entries include extensive historical information, gameplay details, the author’s critique, and, when appropriate, comparisons to similar games. Appendices list and offer brief descriptions of all the games for the Atari Lynx and Game Boy, and catalogue and describe the add-ons to the consoles cited in this book--Neo Geo CD, Sega CD, Sega 32X and TurboGrafx-CD.
The book is set to hit the shops on 31st August for around $55.
