View Full Version : Official Power Tips Book 1-3

I have these books and had the idea of writing a feature about them. The point was to tell if they are worth buying for the average Mega Drive gamer. If the hints are useful, the selected games are popular or hard etc. I would also list all games featured in each book, so no-one buys the pig in the bag, as we say in Sweden (and perhaps other countries as well?).
Is the idea usable? Am I missing something?

Those big yellow books?
It'd be at least a charming look down nostalgia lane.

The first one was black, the second two white (in America). They were all black in Europe. Here is the first one:

That would be a great idea Zebbe, and a serious trip down memory lane, I remember I had one of those as a young fella and even though I didn't own the majority of the games, I used to just love reading about all the great titles, Go forth and do that feature Zebbe...

I have numbers 2 & 3 peering at me from my shelf. Reading them always used to get me more pumped than a flat bike tire. The pictures, the words, the possibilities - a review on them would be awesome. Although, the information was always a bit basic/poor I loved reading and re-reading about all the games I didn't own.
May I now echo Bomber's sentiments:
Go forth and do that feature Zebbe...

Thanks guys, I'll do it after I've finished a review. Any tips on it?

Oh yeah, I have one of those (the second volume I think - whatever one has Sonic 2) which I took out from the library and 'forgot' to give back about 8-9 years ago now :p (the local children's library had some odd books). It's been quite handy. :)
I was going to take a picture to see if anyone recognised it but I guess I don't have to now. ;)

Entirely different from what I meant, but awesome none the less.

I've got a few books by GamePro as well. Very, very simple strategies, but fun to hear how they rave in 90s-speak over games like Zany Golf.
