This game was an entire semester of college for me.  Classes-Dinner-Deathrow.

Tips & Tricks Issue No.97 - 2003

In our age of Pacific Rim and Godzilla (2014), why hasn’t this gotten an HD re-release?  Such a good game.

I had hopes to show off the interior of the “Why to Buy a PlayStation Handbook” in its glorious fold-out majesty.  Then Tumblr’s crappy interface had to screw it up.  Oh well.  Please enjoy the pile of game covers that filled this printed prize.  Just how many of these wonderful games do you own?

A little bit more of the massive PlayStation brochure from my collection.  It’s so interesting that these “Greatest Hits” borders are a double-edged sword.  Sure, they made certain games cheaper during their initial release, but now they make them less valuable compared to their “Black Case” cousins.  What a shame.

In 1997, Sony joined in on the game brochure market and distributed this “Why To Buy a PlayStation Handbook.”  Unlike other pamphlets that highlighted the features of the hardware, this item was pretty much a showcase for the variety of games available on Sony’s debut console.

While selling a new system based on the strength of its software seems like a no-brainer, take a moment to consider the bullet points of the latest console generation (“look gang, it has Netflix!”).

An underrated gem from Treasure.  Great stuff.

Care to see what other goodies I found on Free Comic Book Day?  Hop on over to the Geek Force Network, where I write a weekly column on video game comic adaptations!

I know it has been some time since an actual video game brochure was posted, but you will thank me for this pile of cuteness on your dashboard.

I found this gem at my local shop on Free Comic Book Day, hidden behind a pile of Pokémon manga.  Seriously great art for a piece of merchandise that could have easily been a throw-away cash grab.  What makes this even better is the thought that this was a children’s storybook from the Pokémon Universe that somehow snuck into our world.
