    The CRPG Book is fucking great. I had to get my internet turned off recently and decided to read some of this book. Anyone that hasn't checked it out needs to do so ASAP - there's a wealth of information on a LOT of different games, even some very obscure ones I would never have found without this book. I now have a large list of games I'm going to check out!

    My only complaint: there are a lot of spelling and punctuation errors. Then again, I have v1.0 and I don't know if those errors have been fixed in a later version or not.

    Massive props to Felipe.

    I'm looking forward to buying a hardcover edition when it comes out. Wonder how long that will take but I have friends who work in book publishing and judging by their experiences it takes around 6 months to go through the whole process

    I fixed the big ones that people pointed out, but the full, professional proofreading is being done for the hardcover version. After that I'll release a proofread version of the free PDF ;)

    Can't believe I just found out about this book (comes with being a newfag I guess).
    This is pretty sweet!

    I'm reading my complimentary PDF now, it's amazing.
    I really like the context it provides, about the technology and general vibe for each era. This I think is the key to winning over younger generations and helping them understand.

    Reading the books makes me feel I'm in a room with older gamers, reminiscing over good stuff with the help of some single malt 18 year old. Felipe's language barrier story reminded me of playing Lula with friends. We were all way too young to be playing it, and it was the original German copy of the game, so since none of us knew a word in German, we had dad of one of the kids come and translate for us, which he (luckily for us) happily did.

    It kinda makes me want to have the actual conversation, about all genres, not just cRPGs. I'm high on feels, good job Felipe.

    There's a syntax error in PS:T review, please tell me it didn't make it to the hardcopy version.

    When will the book be available online again? The physical copy edition has been done for long already. Why the delay?

    Aweigh is going to say it's rubbish because Elminage Gothic doesn't get a mention as far as I can see... but thanks Felipe - I too have been enjoying reading the digital copy this last day and a half and it is a tour de force. As comprehensive as one could ever hope to be on a difficult subject knowing that there are codexers potentially out to get you. Thankyou again.

    Got a copy of the collector's edition as a gift from my bro.
    It's a really cool book! Lord know it'll be a perfect "pick-up when bored, discover lesser known titles" companion.

    I really like the various era discussions as well.
