September 29th, 2016, marks the Nintendo 64's twentieth anniversary. To celebrate the birth of this incredibly avant-gardist machine, Matt Manent has written the most comprehensive and remarkable book about this legendary console. 348 pages long, this book inventories and chronicles the entire game library (388 games sold in Japan, the US, Europe, and Australia), sifts through the canceled games, accessories, collector's editions, and, of course, every Nintendo 64 version and bundle. By interviewing the people involved at the time - Martin Hollis (Rare - GoldenEye) and Eric Caen (Titus - Superman; acknowledged as one of the machine's worst games)- Matt Manent has worked to make this book an encyclopedia honoring the Nintendo 64 we've all come to love.

Gamers who cut their teeth in the arcades will love this trip down memory lane. Artcade is a unique collection of coin-op cabinet marquees, some dating back 40 years to the dawn of video gaming. Originally acquired by Tim Nicholls from a Hollywood props company, this archive of marquees - many of which had suffered damage over time - have now been scanned and digitally restored to their former glory. The full collection of classic arcade cabinet artwork is presented here for the first time in this stunning landscape hardback book, and accompanied by interviews with artists Larry Day and the late Python Anghelo. Relive your mis-spent youth with artwork from dozens of coin-ops including Asteroid, Battlezone, Street Fighter II, Out Run, Moon Patrol, Gyruss, Q*Bert, Bubble Bobble and many more. Each marquee takes up a full double-page spread in the book, and is faithfully recreated using beautiful lithographic printing on the highest quality paper. Tim has spent over a thousand hours assembling the high-resolution scans, restoring the images in Photoshop and color-correcting them back to their vibrant, as-new appearance. The results of all that hard work are now available as a lasting record of the amazing artwork that adorned the arcades during the golden era of coin-op video gaming.
Note: This XL Edition of the book contains the same content as the previous edition of Game Boy World 1989, resized to a larger format for consistency with future volumes in the series. While Nintendo's Game Boy outsold every other game system of the 20th century, historians rarely discuss the system in depth. Game Boy World is an attempt to archive and analyze the system and its library in depth. This first volume explores the system, its creators, and every game released for Game Boy in all regions during 1989, the year it debuted. Features in-depth retrospectives for all games, including explorations of the companies people behind the software, as well as all-new photography of every game's packaging and Super Game Boy color-enhanced screen shots.
