  • Looks like Amazon have dropped the price to £10.50, so anyone who has pre-ordered will get it for that. That's almost as cheap as a block of paper. Gotta be a steal? Surely??

    • Bit delayed (wife, new baby due, life, you know the usual excuses in getting behind with my favourite SEworld content) finally got to see this and ordered. It’s now only £5.99 (I think that might make it cheaper than bog roll given the page count ;-) - no insult intended ). Absolutely a must.

    • I feel bad for those paying double a couple of weeks ago. Then again how much does Peter get per book? A set amount or % of sale?

    • So your book came a while ago and I've thoroughly enjoyed it! Would have liked gloss finish pages, but that's a minor complaint indeed. Very nice reading this book!

  • Love the channel and even though the information is freely available on the internet with a quick Google I bought the book to support you and because books are really becoming retro now, so its in line with the channel.

  • Just bought the book and very enjoyable. I do have to point out a slight error. Page 51 shows picture of donkey Kong for the color computer and says it is the Tom mix version. Image does not match the text. Tom mix version was donkey king and yes that version is good but not as good as John Kowalski’s version from 2007. The image is from John’s version. In the 80s we would have loved to have the 2007 version but sadly was not available. Donkey king is fun but the 2007 version is a straight transcoded version from the real arcade and blows everything else away.

  • Just got mine last week. Read it 3 times already. It’s a fantastic book. Very informative and entertaining. I really hope you make this the first of a series. Like one for the PC compatibles and hand held game consoles.

  • Great to receive a copy of your book after Amazon told me that they could not get me a copy in Australia. Excellent work! In the Apple II section, you reference 16 colour capability in the copy (with two greys that on early models, were the same - 5 and 10) but you claim 8 in the “Fact Sheet” inset. Which is correct or have I missed something?

  • I got the book as a christmas present from my girlfriend. She gave me a weird look when I said "Look how beautiful the Amiga was!". I think there might be something wrong with her.

  • Merry Christmas. My sister got me your book as a surprise for Christmas. She has no idea that I watch your videos, and is about as far from a 'gamer' as possible, so I'd say that's a pretty good indicator of how it's been marketed. The first thing I did was flick to the pages for the Intellivision to show my dad. That was a console he had, and the first he introduced me to, before I got my own Sega Master System II.

  • 1:51 I squealed in delight because I recognised Black Crypt, then I looked closer and saw that this was not the game that I lost my youth too but a look-alike called Dungeon Master. I had always thought Dungeon Master was that Bullfrog-made mischief where you dig dungeons and mistreat minions...

  • The book came a couple of days ago. It took some days to deliver to Germany, but still quite quick. I am very pleased, started to read it, but have to be disciplined not to gobble up too much to fast, because I want to enjoy it in small portions. So far it has been delicious! The format is also quite handy, small enough to take it with you, big enough to enjoy the nice hardwar pictures. The idea with the three games pro system is brilliant. You picked some interesting games, many of whom I have never heard of. Congrats for the #1 bestseller status. You earned it!

  • Here's a mystery worth solving in the video game arena. Old turn based Star Trek game, pretty sure it was for the Commodore 64. What was it's name, and are there any copies still around? From what I recall, you could have upwards of 4 or more people take turns plotting course, speed, and allocating power to shield quadrants, and weapons, etc. Once everyone input their moves, you started the session and all the action played out in real time. Was a brilliant top down game, and not sure why a version is not around for online multiplayer. It was similar to the Starfleet Battles board game but in video game form. Cannot find it anywhere on SEworld. If anyone could dig up info, and or screenshots of it, I'd think you could. If you can gather any hard info on it, and or show it in action, and do a video on it, I'll subscribe, and go buy your book. With all the Star Trek fans out there, and nostalgia videos, and everything Star Trek, it's amazing it's nowhere to be found. It's like the damn game never existed. But, it did, because I played it with my uncle and his friends back in the day. Oh, and one more thing. It would be a much better game online with everyone inputting their moves simultaneously, instead of sequentially. It took marathon length gaming sessions to finish a game back then. Like a chess match but with 4 or more players. Was still epic to watch it in action, though.
