Rad Video Game Books At IndieCade East
Museum of the Moving Image in NYC has a pretty awesome gift shop with a hefty selection of books on all sorts of stuff the typical Albotian would be in to: movies, art, and of course, video games.
I had a pretty tough time deciding on which book to get, but I wound up going with Nintendo Magic mainly because I like the face Satoru Iwata is making in the picture up top. I kind of regret the decision because it’s only $7.98 on Amazon (only 2 left in stock as I write this!), but whatevs.
Any readers out there have any of the other books pictured? If so, let us know how they are in the comments.
