I appreciate the offer, but I think I would rather have it in hardback to read.  Cheesy Thanks though!

It's a very intersting read...There's an updated version now that they were selling at GameStop for .99 cents.  I don't know if they still have it, but there's a chapter covering the post N64 era.

Wow that looks like a REALLY interesting read.  Is this book difficult to find?  I'd love to give this a quick read sometime. 

Atonomizer, if they still have this at your GameStop, would you mind picking it up for me?

I got the book with extra chapters (called Game over: Press start to Continue) for Christmas from my girlfriend.  I haven't had a chance to read it yet though, I read a different book that she gave me instead.  The other book is "Power Up:  How Japanese Video Games Gave the World an Extra Life" by Chris Kohler.  I thought it was a great read, you might want to give it a shot after you finish Game Over Martin.

I read that from the public library when it was contemporary. I guess I was maybe 13 or so. Great read.

Thanks for the tip. I loved Game Over when I read it a few years ago but it left me wanting more. I just picked up "Power-Up" on Amazon for $45 which is a bit steep, but I cant wait to read it
