  1. 1: It's my money


    2: Nothing has been "ruined" everything has been improved in every way imaginable.


    1.I know it's your money

    2.I like the original status of any console no matter how shitty it was and improved it can get

    3.I'm not saying you shouldn't have done it,i'm saying that part of me likes it while the part of me that likes keeping consoles the way they were built dislikes it.And as i stated before, GOOD JOB!

  2. Now that is what I call enthusiasm.


    If I were to make a suggestion/request, I'd like to read a gaming book that not only covers the history of gaming, but also has a personal side to it -- testimonials from hardcore fans that lived through the various eras and recounts from the cultures surrounding these classic games. Something that goes beyond facts and figures and expresses the experience (as much as mere words and pictures can) and persuades readers to seek these games out for themselves.


    And yeah, leave the clones and knockoffs out. And I'd probably limit it to North America too. Otherwise you'll exhaust both yourself and your readers.


    Testimonials from gamers that have grew up playing the console and have a real nostalgia for the console will be a good Ideal(4-5 will be good).If it's called the Ultimate history to videogames(or whatever it's called) and leave out Japanese consoles like the Playdia,2800,PV-1000 then it's not Ultimate,it's close to ultimate.I don't want a book that shows half of the videogame consoles,I want to show THEM ALL.Staying up all day and night to get this book published:CHALLENGE ACCEPTED :thumbsup:

  3. Are you going to limit it to machines released in North America?


    There are numerous obscure Japanese consoles that are completely unknown to Western audiences; good like finding enough information to write about them if you do not read Japanese (and have access to stacks of old game magazines).


    What about other unusual systems, such as the Dendy, the NES clone sold mostly in Russia, or the interesting stuff developed locally in Brazil/South America?


    I would personally be interested in a book covering these little-known systems, mainly because there is so very little information available online in English. I would, however, want something significantly more detailed than just a rehash of Wikipedia articles, etc.


    I want to do all I can find(Japanese and US consoles aswell as anywhere else) and will try to find as many as I can possibly find.probably Won't include clones or the version of said console In different areas of the world like the Hyundai comboy/super Comboy(the Korean Nes/SNES),Samsung Gam*boy(Korean SMS) etc( regional consoles like the Famicom and mega drive will be there). because there are alot of them, especially the clones(shitload of Nes clones).Main focus are the original consoles(systems that plays it's own games) and add ons(and maybe some unique clones as far as the console list goes) and Videogame123,I will do only the more significant pong consoles and some unique ones

  4. I never played it before but the Price plus the Hardware issues makes me think it's not worth it.If you can find it for cheap than get It.Some highlights are Super mario bros:the lost levels(the REAL Super Mario bros.2)armana's miracle(Indiana Jones meets Bionic Commando,Fire rock,Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa(action platformer where you play as a baby),Falsion(a 3D glasses game) and others are some good games to get.I would say don't spend more than 80(if that and assuming you have a Famicom) on one.

  5. If it's done right, good quality pictures, good quality paper, good grammar (i have a book about konami games, that is hard to read because somebody used a pc to translate the text from spanish to english.)I would probably buy it, if the price is right (50 dollar max).Please note that a book like you describe ("all" consoles+games) exists, http://gameplanbooks...g=game-machines

  6. I'm 16 and I LOVE retro videogames so I wanna make a Videogame informational book that covers all consoles(I mean all!) from virtually forgotten consoles like the Casio PV-1000,RDI Halcyon,Roller Videocolor,Epoch Cassette Vision and Pc engine GT to the more commonly known consoles like the Nes,Atari 2600,Dreamcast,Genesis,PS1 to the newest console out(don't know when this will be realeased).So I'm asking you where should I get my information(becuse this Is definitely not coming out of my head and of course to gather and alter information In my own words),what extra should I include,price etc

    I will include:

    .A picture of each console

    .10 or 20 games that defined the console(exception when the console has less than 10 or 20 games)

    .notable features that were ahead of It's time(Snes and Genesis Xband,Intellivision Playcable,Dreamcast Internet right out of the box,Atari 2600 wireless joysticks,Atari 2600 Lestick controller,Game.com Internet and touch screen capabilities Lynx's unheard of graphics,Vetrex's Vector graphics etc)

    . Short reviews of the consoles(I will allow anybody here If they want to, a short review of the console and their review be In the book

    .In the back of the book,Videogame terms and historical figures and their definitions/Bio(full page bios and terms like Shump,JRPG,Blast processing!,mode 7 Nolan Bushnell,Shigeru Miyamoto,Gunpei Yokoi etc)

    .Gems In the consoles library(Input will be accepted)
