Steven Poole was a columnist for Edge Magazine for a long time, and he’s has written some books on games.
Steven has now decided (prompted by Amazon’s Kindle launch as he mentions) to offer for free his game-related ebook Trigger Happy, which was released in 2000.
As he says in his blog:
Trigger Happy is a book about the aesthetics of videogames â€” what they share with cinema, the history of painting, or literature; and what makes them different, in terms of form, psychology and semiotics.
A good reading even if you don’t like games, free and released under a Creative Commons license. Trigger happy has just become my weekend book

Olhando melhor, ainda existem muitos links em espanhol e espanholÃªs, mas parece estar actualizada. Mais uns tweaks e temos loja 100% portuguesa (provavelmente com gestÃ£o espanhola).
It seems that I’m not the only one
Not, I’m not dead, neither is this blog or 8Bit Revolution, I’m just experiencing a time crisis.
Arrived today Very tasteful…
As you might have noticed, I haven’t post anything here since 8-Bit Revolution “opened”. It has taken some considerable amount of the time I dedicate to blogging, but I’m not complaining. 8-Bit Revolution has been very fun to work on and it is having a great feedback from the readers.
Speaking of which, 8-Bit Revolution is asking the readers to submit photos of their old Spectrum computers to make a special gallery. Drop by and take a look.

Gostava de vos convidar a visitar o 8-Bit Revolution, um projecto que jÃ¡ tinha na gaveta hÃ¡ algum tempo mas que agora teve uma oportunidade de “saltar cÃ¡ para fora”. Para os amantes de videojogos ou atÃ© mesmo para os curiosos sobre o assunto, o 8-Bit Revolution Ã© acima de tudo uma visÃ£o diferente do que Ã© hoje em dia a indÃºstria dos videojogos.
O convite estÃ¡ feito!
