Encyclopedia of Video Games

It looks like Amazon.com has now the publication date for the massive Encyclopedia of Video Games (volume one alone is 740 pages – edit: I think I this must be the total length for both volumes, but I am not totally sure). This two-volume, initially hard-cover reference book is edited by Mark J.P. Wolf, and will hopefully serve students, scholars and general public alike in providing some essential frames of reference for discussions about games cultures and scholarship in the future. I have contributed five entries to this work: “Casual Games”, “DiGRA”, “Immersion”, “Mobile Games” and “RPG”. Now available for pre-order from here:
