Editorial Reviews

Review

"As a model example of interdisciplinary analysis, Codename Revolution offers a comprehensive guide to the Wii platform, while providing insights into broader interactions between technology, commerce, textual creativity, and cultural practices. A must-read not only for game scholars, but for anyone interested in contemporary media and culture."--Jason Mittell, Associate Professor of American Studies and Film & Media Culture, Middlebury College



" Codename Revolution is a remarkable look at the history of the Nintendo Wii, at its design, its games, and how it changed our idea of what video games can be."--Jesper Juul, visiting assistant arts professor, NYU Game Center, author of Half-Real



"...make[s] indispensable contributions to game studies...by exploring the theoretical, economic, and political implications of expanding the idea of a "platform" to include physical paratexts, communication networks, and cultural environments." - J.A. Saklofske, Acadia University

I gave this book to my son (Huge Nintendo fan!) and he loved it. This is the first non-digital book he's read in a long time. He enjoyed it very much!
