Lots of really interesting history in this one!

The overall experience with Pixel Crib has been great. Quick service and postage. I ordered several books and was pleasantly surprised at a low postage price, given the weight. This book in particular is beautiful. Hard cover, excellent quality pages, and I was surprised at the level of gaming history that was included. A great balance of visuals and knowledge!

The CRPG Book

This book is gorgeous, Bitmap Books sets a high standard as always and I will be looking out for their JRPG guide. Packaging from Pixel Crib was also superb, there was no way this was getting damaged in transit.

Great art, informative and exhaustive.

I was surprised at the size of this tomb when it arrived in the mail. It is comprehensive and covers all mainstream and many smaller releases. Even experts will learn something. The bad news is that it will make you want to play many of these games! Prepare for more spending!
