got my art of acIII book from amazon today. although the pages are bigger (larger book) alot of the images are smaller than they should be. i actually prefer the artbooks for ac1 and acII to this one (i have an official japanese acII artbook), probably because the art team changed for thie later games.

I don't have the other 2 books to compare it to but I thought the book was damn nice, mine arrived today from amazon

I picked this up from B&N last night, as well as the three new hardcover comics. Price was $19 in store since there are various coupons out there right now.

Whats the coupon you used?

Do we know who the publisher is/was for the Portal 2 art book? Perhaps we could try to contact them for any information.

Ah, I see that IronRinn beat me to it. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens. I'll try to find a way to contact them and will report back if I find out anything.


Has anyone come across any info on the Portal book? I haven't been able to find anything.

EDIT: I came across a thread on steam where someone said they contacted Valve and were told that the book was being redesigned and pushed to a 2013 release. Nothing official, but its better than nothing I suppose...

I like that Dead Space clamshell and the idea of the 32 extra pages, but $24 for the "regular" edition at Amazon with free Prime shipping vs. $65 for that limited edition plus shipping makes it a definite no-go.

I like this thread. Wish I could trade some of my hardback strategy guides for these. I buy those mostly for the art.

If you were interested in the Okami artbook, it was out of stock for the last few months. However, it's back at Amazon for $27, which is way better than the $80+ resellers wanted for it. So it's a good time to pick it up if you are interested.

Did anyone get The Art of Blizzard? At $46 it is a little on the more expensive side, so I would like another person's opinion before pulling the trigger.

I have it ordered and I'll be glad to give some quick impressions once I get it. I've debated on canceling it once due to the price but after seeing the video from the release party last week and telling myself it would be hard to find later if I waited and forgot I stuck with it.

Wow ... a little late for this isn't it? I loved the art direction in the game ... too bad the gameplay and story didn't turn out better near the end. Strange this would be a new release, a Brutal Legend sequel would be cool but I'm 99% sure it won't ever get one.

If memory serves correct, it was originally supposed to be released by Insight Editions back in 09, but the deal fell through. I think it was fully designed, just waiting for a publisher. Nice to see Udon pick it up.

Sweet, got a 10.7lb package of goodness inbound. That's the Blizzard art book and Hyrule Historia. I'm guessing 80% of that is the Blizzard one which just has me even more excited. Tomorrow is going to crawl by at work :-(
