Hell just bank on a solid $50 and if it’s cheaper it’s a bonus!)
Bitmap also has visual compendiums for the Commodore 64, Arcade games and the Super Famicom. It’s worth a buy if you plan on being one of those old dads who wants to show their kids the “good old days” of video games.
Shadow of War – the sequel to Shadow of Mordor is going to be that deal. They recently dropped this gameplay walkthrough and yup…it’s going on the preorder list. Anyone else picking this up?
