Column on HG101 Site and other Updates

Saturday, 27 January 2018

Hi all! It's been awhile but we're still working on this! Pledgers kinda plateued over the past couple months so I've been working on a few things to help generate some more interest.

First, since I've got all of these already completed write-ups just lying around, I figured I'd start posting a handful of them, concentrating on stuff that's not already on the site. I'll be posting them weekly around every Friday. They can be found here:

Also, IGN was cool enough to do a write-up for our project back in October:

If you write for a website or have a YouTube channel and would like to help out spread the word, it'd be super appreciated! (And please contact me if you need anything from me!)

I'm thinking about tweaking the list here and there too, and looking at it I think maybe I've taken the "obscure" part too literally. But on the other hand, I do really want to highlight stuff that looks really interesting but no one really talks about it, so it's a hard line to balance. A few I'm looking to switch in are Atlus' Dreamcast survival horror game Despiria and the super-hard PS1 platformer Chippoke Ralph no Daibouken.

Thanks everyone for your support so far! We can definitely do it!

This needs to be happen - a really interesting idea for a book, and yes, it can't be "obscure" enough ;-)

When you click "shipping costs" for the "Hardback (US Delivery) option, you get exactly the same information as for the "Hardback" option below it. I'm wondering if that isn't a mistake, since I'd assume if you've got a separate U.S. delivery option you'd want to identify the specific costs for U.S. delivery (rather than listing the cost for EU delivery and noting that the US costs more, which is what's there right now).
