Review “This book is not only a reference volume, but it keeps alive the
spirit of Nintendo’s legacy.” – Walter Day, industry icon and founder of Twin
Galaxies. “I read the whole thing and loved it! My favorite chapters were
the more intimate ones, where the contributing writers talked about how the
games affected them from a personal standpoint…I kept turning the pages
looking to connect with the writers, and it happened a lot…The quotes and
factoids are great…Grammatically, it’s spotless…There’s a plethora of
balance, knowledge, and fun here…This is the best book Weiss has written so
far.” – Patrick Hickey, Jr., author of The Minds Behind the Games: Interviews
With Cult and Classic Video Game Developers “This book has a great
collection of game-related stories that really take me back to the ’90s, when
I had so much fun playing the heck out of the Super Nintendo.” – Steve Woita,
game designer/programmer of Atari 2600 Taz, Garfield, Asterix and Quadrun.
“Each one of Brett’s books is painstakingly researched, very well-written and
extremely polished. This Super Nintendo book is no exception and should
definitely find a place in the library of every retro-gaming enthusiast.”- Dr.
Roberto Dillon, author of The Golden Age of Video Games and Ready: A Commodore
64 Retrospective. “Brett Weiss has captured an essential part of what made
the SNES indelible and one of the classic video game systems. The personal
stories and memories wrapped up in each game are a welcome time warp back to
those halcyon days.” – Tim Lapetino, author of Art of Atari. “Brett Weiss
proves again that he is the master of game directories”- Leonard Herman,
author of Phoenix IV:The History of the Videogame Industry. “Weiss puts a
heartwarming and personal spin on all that is still great with the Super
Nintendo.” – Michael Thomasson, author of Downright Bizarre Games: Video Games
