THAT SHIT BE COMING OUT TOMORROW



http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1897376022/ref=pd_luc_mri/102-4981124-1409761?_encoding=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&v=glance

just yesterday neogaf had a big thread about the artistic status of videogames, all of which was lies about the political resonance of metal gear solid or the likeness of a mario level to a traditional japanese garden or something. LIES. well you know what's actually artistic about videogames? THIS BOOK, MOTHER****ER

BUY IT OR I KILL YOU

edit: well, the release date is nominally tomorrow, but apparently udon delays everything. doh. dave1988 has posted some nice sample pictures if you scroll down a bit

Uggghhh... I don't have $26 to spend on a book. I just spent $35 on a book. Definitely something I'd go for though if I ever saw it around.

i...don't care enough to go looking for pictures. though if somebody else wants to post some, i'll edit them into the original post or whatever. this thread is mainly just to remind people that it's coming out. it was announced ages ago

THAT SHIT BE COMING OUT TOMORROW
this book is insane, it's soooooooo nice.

Lol - i ended up buying a fair few of these to send to various peoples around the globe.

$26 sounds a lot, but it really is gorgeous.
I want more books like this.

Damn I want this, do Amazon ship to the UK? Or is there any other way to get it into the UK? Seems criminal not to own this.

Edit, ignore that. Completely missed the Amazon UK link.

God ****ing dammit drohne, this was supposed to be a major surprise for my wife who is a HUGE Okami fan and artist (and browses here) who had NO idea this had a US release. ****.

Also I'm not sure how much faith I would place in this coming out tomorrow; the Rockman Zero Complete Works they link on the same page is listed as coming out July 4th, but they still only have it as up for pre-order.

Your reply in here is more damaging to the surprise!

Udon pushed back till september the mega man zero artbook and they said they will do first the mega man zero artbook and then the okami one, don´t get your hopes high, maybe they pushed back the Okami artbook too.

This is published by Udon? Gosh I've been waiting for them to release the Street Fighter Ultimate Edition Volume 1 book for AGES, it has been delayed forever. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0978138600/ref=wl_it_dp/105-6282166-5223655?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1BT9N8HN0TNR8&colid=RS8ABODWJZS5

I'm 20 hours in and wish it was over. How long is it?
My final playtime was ~40 hours, and I also didn't get anywhere near all of the extras.

Man, that's amazing design. I wish Okami would come to the Wii. :(
You and me both...too bad that the only "art" game companies admire is the pile of money in their bathtub :lol

So I probably should play this game huh.
Are you a huge tool? Because if you are you'll just come in here and complain about the game being 20 hours too long. If you're not a huge tool then I highly recommend this game as its my personal GOTG.

Screw Wii, I can play with myself and play Okami at the same time already. I want a nice 720p or 1080p port to 360 or heaven forbid the PS3. And no, upscaling does not count. Also throw in 80 more hours of gameplay and let me play as Shiranui. And more weapons and a dragon.
