I am constantly trying to get guide writer interviews, and I guess these creatures do not enjoy talking to strangers or my e-mails disappear in a void. But when I contacted Future Press about interviewing their writers for the inFamous Guide, I finally received a response. I was told that they are too busy at this time to conduct an interview, and I’m not disappointed about that, because hey at least I was written back. But then the media contact surprised me by reading my review and asking me to review what he considered far better guides. I gave him my address and thanked him, but I never really expected anything to come from it.
Then yesterday, a huge stack of guides arrived at my front door. I have been floored ever since. Future Press is a German publisher, so most of their guides are official from Europe, and a publisher in the States occasionally picks them up to adapt as their own. Like inFamous. In other words, all of these guides I received have US counterparts, so I’m intrigued to how they compare to some of the guides I already own.
The stack includes Final Fantasy III (DS), Tekken 5, God of War II, Killzone 2, and Bionic Commando. I cannot wait to review these and I cannot thank Future Press enough for this opportunity.
