I submitted GameSpite Quarterly 8 for a proof print tonight, which is a huge relief; this book has consumed every free minute I’ve had for the past three months or so, but I’ve managed to get things into proper shape a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. To celebrate (because I always celebrate reaching a work milestone by doing even more work), I’ve posted the GSQ8 page. Eventually, you will be able to buy the book from here. But that’s a month away; in the meantime, you can see what will be in said book. The main listing encompasses all the full articles, but as with GameSpite Quarterly 5 there’s something like 100 pages of write-ups for individual games (and accessories) that aren’t listed in the index. If you want to see everything that’s written about (well, almost), you can skim through the massive copyright indicia at the bottom of the page.
Unless the translation from InDesign to page is far more horrible than I realized, this is going to be an excellent issue. Maybe the best so far.
And for those who are contemplating picking up some back issues of the magazine, I stumbled across a page with multiple Blurb discount codes today. Unfortunately I don’t think these will still be running at the beginning of May (when GSQ8 is ready), but if you’re interested in picking up some stuff before then, you’ll find codes good for up to 20% off an order. Which seems pretty good, I think.
