GameSpite's third quarterly issue takes the form of a huge encyclopedia of 8-bit videogame characters spanning three decades and systems as varied as the arcade, the NES, and the ZX Spectrum. A complete listing of contents is available at http://www.gamespite.net/toastywiki/index.php/Site/GSQ3TableOfContents
This Deluxe edition contains 34 pages of bonus content over the Standard edition and is available only in hardcover. For the discerning game nerd who wants a book of tongue-in-cheek biographies of forgotten fictional characters.
The site currently hosted at GameSpite.net has been online in various incarnations since 1996, although it's only in the past few years that it's become a home to smart, incisive critiques by a loosely-associated team of writers.
