An interesting look at the history of Nintendo in America through the lens of the company‘s super famous mascot. I‘ve had Nintendos on and off. I‘ve owned an NES, SNES, and a Wii, but I wouldn‘t say I‘m obsessed. Ryan captures what makes Nintendo special and why consumers still flock to it. What he shared makes sense as to why I‘ve preferred N over the Xbox One and PS3 I‘ve owned. Games are higher in entertainment over skill. #roll100

PuddleJumper Sounds interesting! I'll keep an eye out for that 7mo
rabbitprincess Thanks for the tag! This does sound interesting. We‘re mostly a Nintendo family (N64, Wii, Game Boy Colour, and now Switch) so I‘m sure this will be a good read! 7mo
Cinfhen Nintendo makes me think of my kiddos! They loved ALL the game systems but I agree…Nintendo really was the MOST ENTERTAINING 7mo
Chelsea.Poole We have a Switch and it‘s definitely my favorite! Animal Crossing is so relaxing ✨ 7mo

Huuuuuge #bookhaul today because my #kindle #paperwhite signature edition (11th generation) was delivered today so essentially I have a whole ebook library book haul!

My partner and I also purchased two boxes full of books from an estate sale for $1 a book! #usedbooks

Also, I could not resist the opportunity to show off my new #Nintendo #GameBoy watch while letting a skeleton's hand do the talking about how this nerd feels today! 🤘

TheBookDream I just got a Kindle Oasis! My preferred ebook purveyor is still Kobo, but I am enjoying the ease of porting fanfic 🤣 7mo

This is super weird and I kinda like it. It makes fun of a lot of Animal Crossing tropes and play styles in a very gentle, over the top way.

Roary47 This exists!!!?? 😱 First chance I get I‘m snagging a copy. 😍 8mo
PuddleJumper @Roary47 There are 6 volumes 🤣 8mo

Super Mario Bros. 2 | Howard Phillips, Jon Irwin

While the ongoing drive behind much of Boss Fight Books' output - to combine a history of an entry's titular game with the author's own - has produced some excellent titles, I feel Super Mario Bros. 2 came up a bit short. While still a very engaging read, Jon Irwin's account of his past and present experiences playing the game just can't hold a candle to the account of personal trauma in Galaga, or of personal discovery and reinvention in ZZT. 3/5

With Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow still fresh in my mind, I think this account of not only Nintendo‘s rise but video game culture in general makes a nice companion. Supposedly, there are some factual errors, which is a shame because I quite enjoyed it. It‘s not a deep dive, but it gives a casual gamer like myself a bit of insider information and like Zevin‘s novel, a warm fuzzy feeling of nostalgia.

BC_Dittemore Also Ray Porter narrates the audiobook; he does Project Hail Mary as well. I‘m telling you that dude could read the phone book to me and I‘d be on the edge of my seat 1y

Light and fun, this history of Nintendo is an easy read. Look elsewhere if you want in depth reporting, but as a primer, you could do worse.
