Not to go against the grain or anything but I really like design number 3. Something about the neon style graphics and the green grid background reminds me of Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.

Still No 2 bud.. the new one reads coin up.. remember you are trying to attract impulse purchases as much as people who know what its about.

it's coming along very well, I have all the beatem'up and driving spreads done, and all the introductory pages for them, now, working on the shootem'up section. so it's gonna be cool..and I will be breaking up the book into sections with different content other than the game coverage, but it's a secret at the moment :)
