Heres his account

He confirmed the P4 book would be getting reprints, and for others to expect announcements by the end of the year

I can't seem to access NeoGAF. It states that they do not except "free websites" when it comes to signing up for an account. 

 

I figured since that timing would be right around the time of the other claimed Megaman game announcements by Capcom it might be a possibility.

Ya. Capcom said they will announce something in December, Megaman related. Hopefully, UDON does a reprint of all (or some) of the artbooks. That would be awesome.

Weird. But yeah he confirmed Persona 4 was coming back and was and was currently being reprinted. Megaman Zero Artbook was a very high probability and to wait till December-ish to see how its coming back, and he talked about some other upcoming books and hopeful books like Dark Souls and Bayonetta.

Yeah, I've got that one coming soon. Bitmap books are some of the best in overall content and quality. They also deliver in a pretty good time frame as well. Although packaging can sometimes be an issue, but any damages always get corrected, so no worries.

Did you order direct from Bitmap? Or are they available elsewhere? I ordered it through Amazon along with Neogeo, but Bitmap has said those listings are bogus. Probably need to order from somewhere else

I got mine through Kickstarter, as I do with almost all my books that are offered there first. I always try to support these projects as best I can, as physical books/magazines are on the way out same as games.   

 

So even though these books cost more thru the Crowdfunding, the creators get more money, and that helps them to keep doing what they do. There's a new Dreamcast book ending in a few days as well, it's not by Bitmap, but another good guy who has some great books under his belt as well.

Anyone know how long the "free" Stick of Truth will last or will it just be a code that always will come with the Fractured But Whole?

 

I only ask becasue I usually wait 4-6 weeks to get new games to save money but do not want to miss the freebie

I've seen most, if not all Bitmap Books on Amazon over the years, but recently, they seem to be trying to cut back on the Amazon offerings, so consumers are left dealing with them directly. I've had dealings directly with several guys who do these types of books, and each one always says they make more money when these are bought directly, so that's the route I try my best to take.

 

No harm in waiting on a better deal though, as some of these books can be rather expensive. So without a decent reduction in cost, many would never be able to get these publications otherwise. So I'm sure that's why they are offered more often than not, at some point through other retail options. When and how many, remains to be seen though?

That makes sense given that my preorder of the Neo Geo Visual guide was cancelled by Amazon late last month because they couldn't secure an accurate ship date. 

 

I just went ahead and ordered it through Bitmap directly. Hopefully we'll have them by the end of the month. (Great company and I love their products)

Just a heads up, if anyone ordered the NEOGEO a Visual History from Bitmap Books, I just got an email showing inventory has arrived, and orders should start shipping early next week, so be on the lookout.

Hardcore Gaming 101 wants to put out their next book, and is looking for backers via Unbound: Hardcore Gaming 101 Presents: Japanese Video Game Obscurities. It's just the sort of topic that's up their alley, so I couldn't say no. Hardback copy pledges start at $20 (+$10 shipping in the US) and currently they're only a third of the way to being fully funded.

Thanks for the heads up, but I put in awhile ago for this one actually. Most of their books are on Amazon, and I have almost all of them. Good quality for softcovers, and the price is reasonable as well, great group of guys.

I just found out about it today via a random visit to HG101. Hadn't seen mention of it in this thread, so I wanted to let others know in case they hadn't heard already.

Hope this gets funded. Been a fan of the site for years, but this is the first book of theirs that really interests me.

Honestly, I don't even know why they needed funding, as they crank out pretty great books on a regular basis. I'm sure they may have explained the reason why, but it didn't really matter, as I always like to support projects like this. Hopefully some others who have never seen or heard of them before will give them a look.
