    UoU library has it’s order. Darryl had to sign on it though, so you only get one… Unless you have friends in the library, I never thought of that…

    hey wait, why is there a playstation pad on the cover … I’m guessing you didn’t get much of a say in the cover art.

    anyway hope its good. I’m tempted to buy it purely based on the description mentioning the word economics, also amazon sells it better (advertising) on their website. can’t wait for the amateur reviews to start rolling in.

    I’ll wait til the summer. last academic book i bought was difficult questions about video games, that was funny. funny more than good. the answers were so ridiculous.

    BTW… did anyone hear that our very own HOFF got engaged?? :)

    not much say in terms of the cover and the buttons were meant to be red but turned out, well a bit pinker…

    I don’t think you will get too many laughs from it either…sorry..

    Congrats, Aphra. I hope to get it sometime soon. BIFHE have recently added a good few game dev books to the shelves. I’ll see if they can buy yours before I make my departure from the place!
