I love the content idea.. Can't wait to see a physical book.
I just checked the website and there is a “Buy Now” button that takes you to PayPal. So it looks like it is finished. I can’t justify the cost right now but they do look like good books.

Very generous and very good books. I had already got the Lemmings book but now I have also downloaded the 101 Amiga games. Big thank you Jay.

I still need to see the last one but I've always liked the JP movies.
The previous one has some interesting scenes and lots of action with a nice twist at the end, very nice I felt. Looking forward to this one 😍

Yes, I think I go with that Trek. For me, I kept an open mind and I get what they were trying to do about the whole film being set in the future, Luke fulfilling his destiny (nice twist I thought) and the whole thing about balance. Of course, Fey was was a great character and I want to know more about what she saw 😉. I do hope I have kept that cryptic enough so as not to spoil it for those who have not yet seen the film. Then again, if you haven’t seen this yet, why not??? 😉

I will try and be brief and now spoil this for anyone.

I really enjoyed the film, a bit Disney in a couple of places, but on the whole it was actually quite good. Very good overall, in fact. We watched episode VII on Netflix the night before so we were up to speed. Nice 😉

Hmm, I really like the idea of three volumes and I would very happily buy all three. The modern incarnation of Atari makes me sick at times, the company, as we knew it, died a long, long time ago and the younger generation of today don’t know who they are. If they made their entire back catalogue of games and images free to all, then, and only then, would the name and brand get current day recognition and Atari could move forward into the modern era with modern and innovative hardware and maybe software. Start again Atari and reinvent the wheel - that is how legends are made!

Bought my tickets a few weeks ago, going to see this in 3D (I know, not everyone’s cup of tea) with Dolby Atmos sound 👍🏻

18th December 2017 can’t come around quick enough 😀 (very excited)***

Hmm, I am a bit late to the party as usual but I saw this kickstarter a while back. This thread has been very helpful in pursuading me that this book might be of interest to me even at the high price. The redesigned cover is much, much better. My only gripe, as always, is how come you didn't cover the Jaguar?

Ditto, hello and welcome!

Hey, with the name "Keith" and a scouser, that makes you a somewhat rare animal. My dad hailed from Liverpool, great city.

EDIT: hang on a sec, getting my wires crossed a little. Anyway, "Keith" is still a great name 😉

Well, I hope they prove Tom wrong and reflect more of the book. I have put the book in my basket on Amazon UK to order later, just £6.29 with free p&p. Kindle is just £1.30 so, I look forward to reading this.

The trailer, for me, is ok but much of what they show has already been done. My real interest however, is the from the Tron like sequences. Time will tell.

I hope you are both right. I am intrigued by this new box but very much on side with Greyfox regarding past titles. Just waiting to be blown away, though I doubt it. The Jaguar is a prime example of hype from Atari. Good console, bags of potential, under supported.
