Right now I'm working on the next book, which will cover the Genesis, TurboGrafx, and Neo Geo.


Are you going to get into the detail history of Sega at that time? We pretty much know what happend ( I had to do a report on it in school), but Sega was at its prime during that time, all thanks to Kalinske during that period.

Nice to know an author came about the Racketboy express, ive seen the first book on Amazon, i might get around to getting it, or probably this next one. I do happen to have every Sega system, so its going to be interesting what your say on that is...

Good man. Acknowledging the SNES is so awesome it needs a book of its own.

Here's a question. Do you also talk about important import titles that never made it over here, such as the other Final Fantasies and Mother for the NES or the legion of Square titles on the SNES?

Welcome Brett. Looks like a great series. If you're covering all the games, is it more of a reference book, with capsule synopses, or is it more narrative/history?

There are lots of historical tidbits scattered throughout, but the focus is on the individual games. EVERY game for the NES, Master System, and Atari 7800 has a 125-185 or so write-up with gameplay info, editorial commentary, data, etc. So it's more toward the capsule synopses.

Thanks for asking!
