I looked around, but couldn't really find a catch-all thread for sharing books and other writing about games. StoryBundle is currently doing a big bundle of great books about games. It's all DRM-free and sold in the same beat-the-average price structure as Humble Bundles. Oh, and you can donate a portion of what you spend to Pixelles, a non-profit initiative for women in games. I picked it up last night. There's some stuff in there that I'm really looking forward to reading (having peered just a little bit into the abyss of Wisdom Tree, I'm very interested in jumping into that), but the real standout here is Ray Barnholt's Scroll magazine, which I'd been wanting to nab for years now after hearing him talk about it during his many appearances on Retronauts. If you beat the average, you get all 12 issues for half the price of the ebook edition of the magazine, so it's great value anyway, and I love Barnholt's dedication to covering very off-the-beaten-path games and companies. You want an interview with the My Summer Vacation guy? Got it. You want to know more about Japan-only original Xbox games? It's covered. You want to read about Artdink, the developers of No One Can Stop Mr. Domino for the Playstation? There's a whole dang issue about it. Really great stuff.
tberton posted a topic in BooksSo I've just started my MA in Public History. I'm really enjoying the program so far and the people are great, but some of the stuff I've had to read is incredibly dense. It's interesting and informative, but not super clearly written. For instance, I'm currently reading Hans-Georg Gadamer, a mid-century German philosopher. Here is a line from Chapter 2 of his book Philosophical Hermeneutics Somebody wrote that with a straight face. Anyway, does anybody else have any interesting/horror stories from their studies?
