Picked these up from Amazon with the $5 discount on each of them.

Congrats, as I missed out on most of these book deals strictly due to time and other life matters happening during all these damn sales. It was probably for the best, as I was probably grabbing books I really didn't need, just because the price was so low.

They also just announced a Monster World Book. I'm too lazy to post a link, but it's a thing. Lol

Heck yes. Big bummer that it’s paperback, though.

Any pics of what that GoW book will look like on the inside? As I'm for sure interested, just need more info before purchase.

Not that I've seen. I'm not sure if Dark Horse tends to show preview pages.

They do on their own site, but usually not this far in advance, afaik.

Geeks-Line is offering free shipping to all of Europe and US until Feb. 10th. Not earth-shattering, but their books don't really go on sale.

Bitmap Books latest visual compendium(Atari 2600/7800) is up for pre-order. The collector's edition is limited to only 1000 total, so grab that now if it's to your liking.

The CE sounds somewhat disappointing. I prefer how Geeksline CEs have unique books with more content. This just seems to be extra stuff tossed into the shipping box.

 

Collector's Edition
Limited to just 1,000 units, we've devised a special Collector's Edition of Atari 2600/7800: a visual compendium that comes with a free bookmark, A2 2600 Blueprint poster, A2 7800 Blueprint poster and a pack of 5 postcards – each one featuring an iconic Atari game. Note that the posters come rolled in a heavy duty tube and the postcards come within a polythene bag for protection.

Great catch, as I hadn't really noticed that, as they normally offer this stuff as extras for their KS campaigns, which I normally grab, as I like the posters. So for this book, those items only seem to be offered within this set, which is fine for me, but definitely not something that should be bought for any "CE" status. As the only difference for the actual book, is the extra stuff thrown in the box as stated(no slipcase, COA, or "#" item of any kind).

Target has buy 2 get 1 free on books: https://www.target.c...nk=Buy2get1free

 

There's also a 15% off digital coupon on Target Circle (formerly Target Cartwheel). Good time to stock up on gaming books.

 

You can also mix and match with CDs, Movies, and video games

I'm looking through my Target app and not seeing that 15% off coupon anywhere.

Weird. In the app, click on Target Circle offers, then click on Tech & entertainment. It's listed there for me (along with a 15% off board games). However, I just noticed it has a "Just for you" over the thumbnail so I guess it only triggers from some people? Odd.

I preordered all the upcoming Udon Streetfigher Artbooks. 

 

But I'm most excited for the Swimsuit Art Book. :whee:

Gris Artbook - April 28, 2020 - $49.00

 

Special Reserve Games released a Gris collector's edition last year that came with an art book, so this could be the same as that one. Haven't seen any details yet. https://specialreser...ages/games-gris

Seems to have the same page count, so probably just a lesser bells & whistles version of the LE book. I'm not familiar with this game, I'm guessing the art book is worthy of a second run? If I see books like this before hand, I'll try to see if the game interest me, so that I don't miss out on the LE offerings if I come to like a game at a later date. I'll for sure have to take a look now, but no rush until the price is discounted. LOL

It's the best looking game I've ever played so well deserving of an artbook.

Annoying? That's an understatement to say the least(good footage of the art book, so a required evil I suppose). LOL

Yeah, the art style looks pretty slick, I'll for sure be keeping an eye out on the game as well as the art book for a possible future purchase.

The Art of Ghost of Tsushima is up on Amazon. $49.99. Comes with a slipcase. Release date: June 30, 2020

 

Looks like it won't have a traditional spine. Don't know if I've ever seen that before.

The Animal Crossings New Horizon Companion Guide is currently $17.99 over at Amazon(retail $29.99). While I haven't played an AC game since the DS, back then having a guide was a must, as there is so much to do in these games. While I'm not currently planning to get the game once I get my Lite, you never know, so I ordered an extra copy for myself just in case. https://www.amazon.c...84644112&sr=8-1

PSA: Last few days for Sandeep Rai's 3rd and final digest style "Playstation Vita: The End" unofficial book over at Kickstarter. I have the first two books in the series and they are a very cool tribute to the Vita, which says a lot since this is the 3rd and final offering, so I'm guessing others have felt the same. He also runs 2 old 4 gaming channel on YT with some cool gaming content as well.

Square Enix is releasing Final Fantasy VII Remake World Preview in English in September (MSRP: $24.99). There's also an FFVII Poster Book due out in November at the same price point.

Monster Hunter World Official Complete Works is coming from Viz on August 11.

 

MSRP $49.99; currently up for preorder from the usual shops for less. As far as I can tell, Right Stuf is currently the cheapest at $37.49 (btw, the free shipping threshold there is $50).

Ordered. It was discounted like a month ago, shot back up to MSRP and now discounted again. Missed it the first time around but got to order it on sale!

The game is amazing by the way. I played new leaf for the 3DS and I must say, I'm amazed by this game.

Yeah, I got sucked in to the DS Animal Crossing game, and after that one, I had to swear off the series, as I can't afford to get sucked down the rabbit hole again. LOL

 

Game looks great, as I've watched my son play it a few times, as well as watching YT clips, since my son is always drawn to those. A guide like this is key, and while I'm not planning to start playing the game, I'll be happy to ready the guide and see what I'm missing out on.
