    Don't know if any of you are interested or not but I just picked up this book today, it's HUGE and details every NES game that was ever made. It's pretty cool!

    This is where I got it from

    He's also got it on Amazon now, it seems. It looks like it's more expensive, but it's actually .50c cheaper after shipping.

    I'll just put this in my Wish list for later.

    Maybe someone will make an SNES one. I'd much prefer that book.

    I'm with you on the SNES one, it was more what I grew up with as opposed the NES but I collect and play my fair share of NES games now so this is still pretty cool.

    I'd really enjoy a SNES version or an N64 version of that book.

    Not sure why I didn't check this thread before, would love to pick that up! Didn't even know Pat the NES Punk had written a book...:blush:

    I watch his YT videos quite a lot, and while I'm sure he's probably mentioned it in them, the fact he'd written a book for whatever reason just didn't sink in :D.

    I started watching his channel more and more about a year ago with the podcast that he puts on, seems like a great guy!

    Doesn't he own one of the NWC gold cartridges?

    He did an AVGN episode involving that cartridge. James made a fake copy of the gold one and smashed it in that episode and originally people flipped out. At the end of the video in the middle of the credits he shows off both cartridges unharmed. I'd be mad too if someone smashed something so valuable.

    Edit: There's no way he had any intention of selling them on the show. That being said, you can totally see how fake the show is based off of his appearance in it.
