The second volume of articles published by the GameSpite collective in 2007-2008. Enough video game criticism to injure a person, at least in hardback; the paperback edition is still substantial enough to use as a small doorstop. Crammed with articles on games! Including Mario Kart 64, Shenmue, Street Fighter III, Gunstar Heroes, and Maniac Mansion. Also contains more than you could ever want to read on the Mega Man, Metal Gear, and Metroid series, including never-before-published pieces on Mega Man Battle Network and Metal Gear Solid 2 (as well as a bunch of REALLY old articles on these series dredged up from the site's archives circa 1999-2002).
Please note that, cover quality aside, the hardcover and paperback editions of this book are exactly the same.
A full listing of article contents is available at http://www.gamespite.net/toastywiki/index.php/Site/YearOneVol2 (or you could check the "Preview Book!" feature and read the table of contents).
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.
