Just pre-ordered my copy of Arcade Mania on Amazon:
Arcarde Mania book
As the description on their site says:
Covering classic games from Space Invaders to Street Fighter, as well as the unique, quirky games found only in Japan
Sounds great! Can’t wait to receive it!
Too bad it only gets available after x-mas, otherwise I could have asked my girlfriend to buy it for me as a Christmas present. 😉
Since I finished Densha Otoko (train man) I had to start with a new book. My girlfriend already packed most of our books because we’re moving so my choice was limited.
Lucky enough she didn’t pack After Dark by Haruki Murakami so I started with that book last night.
I must say that the book starts the usual Murakami style and the same goes for the atmosphere: a lot of references to his personal favorites. Makes me more curious to some reference to the background music of the part I read last night… I had the same with The Elepehant Vanishes: I even looked for secondhand Duke Ellington on Queensday and immeditately bought every single one I found.
