New release from White Owl Books - The Dreamcast Encyclopedia 🎮







Quote
The Dreamcast Encyclopedia is the fifth book in Scottish author and games journalist Chris Scullion’s critically-acclaimed series of video game encyclopedias.

 The Sega Dreamcast is fondly remembered by players as a games console that was ahead of its time, almost to a fault. Its incredible graphics offered a level of detail that hadn’t been seen on home systems to that point, and its built-in modem brought online multiplayer to many console players for the first time ever. Ultimately though, the release of the PS2 (and later the GameCube and Xbox) led to struggling sales and Sega would eventually pull the plug on the Dreamcast just two years into its life, bowing out of the console manufacturing business altogether. On paper the Dreamcast was a commercial failure, but those who owned one remember it so fondly that for many it remains one of the greatest games consoles of all time, with a small but well-formed library of high-quality games. This book contains every one of those games, including not only the entire western library of around 270 titles, but also the 340 or so games that were exclusively released in Japan. With over 600 games covered in total, screenshots for every title and a light-hearted writing style designed for an entertaining read, The Dreamcast Encyclopedia is the definitive guide to one of the most underrated gaming systems of all time.

Ultima Creator Richard Garriott Recounts The Gory Tale Of Getting His First Game Manufactured



Quote
Ultima began life as Akalabeth: World of Doom, a 1979 adventure which the teenaged Garriott largely created as a hobbyist project, even going as far as to print the manuals himself and pack them with the disks in Ziploc bags before shipping them to customers.
While this part of the tale is well known – as is the fact that Garriott's next game, 1981's Ultima I: The First Age of Darkness, would kick off a franchise which would sell almost half a million copies in North America alone by 1990 – there's a segment of this narrative which is less publicised, as Garriott himself explains :
"When they were being printed, it was just me, and the young woman on the other side of the counter running the huge printing press. The printing press had ink, that was spread evenly before being transferred to the final roller with the image on it, by running over a series of rollers rolling in opposite directions… perhaps 6 such rollers.
While the woman was operating the press, making the Akalabeth manuals, her hair got caught in the rapidly spinning series of inked rollers! In a matter of a split second, it sucked in her long hair, and slammed her cheek into the machine. Fortunately, she also, instinctively, reached around and shut off the machine.
But, she was now pinned against the machine, deeply entangled and bleeding significantly. I jumped over the counter and began ...

Two larger-than-life heroes brought together by the hand of fate, or perhaps something more sinister…
Ichiban Kasuga, an unstoppable underdog who’s no stranger to crawling up from rock bottom, and Kazuma Kiryu, a broken man facing down his last days.
Experience one-of-a-kind combat with dynamic, fast-paced RPG battles where the battlefield becomes your weapon, and anything goes.
Adapt your party’s skills to the situation with outlandish jobs and customizations to strategically subdue enemies with over-the-top moves.
