Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind massive games such as World of Warcraft and Overwatch have announced the launch of a brand new publishing arm, Blizzard Publishing, dedicated to developing and releasing Blizzard publications and reissuing out-of-print titles.
Art books are my Achilles heel. Regardless which game or series they're from, I'll love each and every one. I love the art which goes into video games, even those I haven't a clue about. However, when I am familiar with the franchise, that's even better. The latest art book to catch my eye is the one being released by Sony for the 15th anniversary of Killzone.
Let's face it, we've all had a teacher like Snape: mean and nasty, but all very well intentioned. Yes, that's right. That grumpy potions teacher, in my opinion, was an all-right geezer, he just enjoyed being grumpy. We all enjoy doing that, yes all of us.
reddit, the "front page of the Internet" has announced the launch of Ask Me Anything: Volume One, a hardback book which has compiled some of the site's best AMAs from the popular r/IAmA subreddit.
Bethesda have given us a sneak peek at the upcoming book "The Art of Fallout 4", which is set to be released after the game's launch on December 22nd...
In a move that looks like they're going back to what they know, writer Tsugumi Ohba (Death Note) and artist Takeshi Obata (Bakugan) announced...
As the school term begins today and the holiday season rolls even closer, it's time for Guinness World Records to start teasing us with what's in store for this year's copy of the iconic book. In this case though, we're looking at the new annual Gamer's Edition of the book which includes a ton of gaming-related records, of course.
Though the debate continues as to whether video games can be considered art, there's no doubt that some games are just artistically fantastic and warrant their own art books and in some cases, that happens, like with Titan Books' latest announcement for the Art of Fable Legends.
Okay, now that we've gotten that out of the way... You probably only know about The Dark Tower if you're that kind of nerd. You know, a book nerd. I say that because yes, it is Stephen King, but not his normal bloody-scare-the-pants-off-of-you horror fare. I know about it because I am that kind of nerd, you see. Although I am a bit ashamed to say that I have only read the first book in the series.
You wouldn't think that almost a year ago Ubisoft released their experimental RPG, Child of Light, but time has flown since, and to celebrate the anniversary of the game which was well received by critics and gamers alike, Ubisoft is offering a free illustrated art book, Child of Light: Reginald The Great. This PDF is available to anyone to download, even if you're yet to play the game..
In news that is both happy and sad, Games Radar has reported that the final novel in the late Terry Pratchett's Discworld series will be released in September this year. The Shepherd's Crown will feature a now-teenaged Tiffany Aching, Witch of the Chalk, and will follow on from the events of the previous four in the story arc.
Though I'm slowly managing to read the book for the first time, I'm already pretty invested in the film adaptation of Ready Player One, a novel by Ernest Cline which tells the story of an insane virtual reality video game which lets people escape from the almost apocalyptic world they're living in.
Chuck Palahniuk is one of my favourite authors, Survivor is a particular favourite of mine, and while Fight Club was a much better film adaptation than Choke (at least in my opinion), I'm still pretty excited to hear that Lullaby, a book about a mysterious chant that's been killing off infants, and adults, is being made into a movie with Palahniuk himself getting elbows deep in the movie's production. Quite rightly too considering the origins of the book.
