Title: "Game & Watch Complete Book"
Post by: manuel on January 11, 2009, 04:18:36 am
Otonafami's newest issue comes with a little special called "Game & Watch Complete Book".

I thought some of you might be interested.

As I don't have a scanner at hand now, I took photos. The room is a bit dark, so the photos aren't the best, but should be good enough to see what's going on.

Amazon (clicky) (http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%AA%E3%83%88%E3%83%8A%E3%83%95%E3%82%A1%E3%83%9F-2009%E5%B9%B4-February/dp/B001N3KJAY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1231871695&sr=8-1)

I thought you had to be in Japan to order from amazon.co.jp?  I'm in London unfortunately.  I guess only hope is to import with commission, so it may be rather pointless as costs add up and up.

Manual, would you be willing to scan hi res?  I will post some little Thundercats NES screens I made as an easter egg in advance :D

A thundercats game would have been awesome!

Only certain items are prohibited (like video games...).  You can order books from them no matter what country you're in, afaik.

Dude you are the king - I seriously appreciate that!!

I'll think of a decent way to say thankyou or you can always ask when you need a favour!

Thanks again!   

Keiffer, no it was a pixel art expo where we all chose a film or series and made an impression of what it would look like.  I chose Thundercats as there was no nintendo version just crappy C64 and Amstrad CPC ones.  We had to adhere to the system limitations, which was the fun part for me.  You can find the topic here:

Sorry to be off topic with this!
