I eagerly picked up the first videogame collection that was offered by StoryBundle, purveyors of pay-what-you want eBook bundles, so I eagerly snapped up the 2.0 bundle. You can pay what you want for six eBooks and magazines and if you pay $10 or more, you'll unlock some extras.
The standard bundle includes Blue Wizard Is About To Die by Seth Barkan, Dreamcast Worlds by Zoya Street, Vaporware by Richard Dansky, The Guide to Classic Graphic Adventures by Kurt Kalata, and issues one through seven of the wonderful Kill Screen magazine.
If you do decide to pay more than $10 you'll get a copy of Replay: A History of Video Games by Tristan Donovan, The Rise of the Videogame Zinesters by Anna Anthropy, and A Slow Year by Ian Bogost which includes a free game. There's some great reads here and it's left me itching to finally get a subscription to Kill Screen magazine.
