Book Summary:

Le quatorzième opus d'une série unique sur les plus novateurs des jeux vidéos ! À la marge des séries d’envergure du jeu de rôle japonais (J-RPG) travaillent des développeurs plus confidentiels mais tout aussi importants pour l’évolution du jeu vidéo. Parmi eux, les fondateurs de tri-Ace ont toujours porté la vision d’une branche plus dynamique que les canons du genre. Ce sont ces trois âmes, aidées de quelques autres bien connues, qui ont engendré l’une des licences les plus mystiques qui soient : Valkyrie Profile. Exportée très tard et pas toujours reconnue à sa juste valeur, cette série compte trois jeux bien singuliers, unis par un concept de combats efficace et atypique. Mais si un seul d’entre eux mérite d’être décortiqué, c’est sans nul doute l’épisode original. Immergez-vous dans les coulisses de l'univers crépusculaire de ce jeu, influencé par les mythes scandinaves et germaniques. La fin des temps n’est plus très loin. À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Chimiste hors des mondes imaginaires, la vie vidéoludique de Colin bascule dans sa quinzième année lorsqu’il tombe en arrêt sur un certain Final Fantasy IX. Dès lors, son appétit pour le RPG japonais ne trouve de satiété ni dans les blockbusters ni dans des productions plus modestes mais tout aussi intéressantes culturellement parlant. Son besoin viscéral de donner ses – trop longs – avis l’amène à s’essayer à la critique puis à l’analyse, sur les sites jeuxvideo.com, Legendra et Merlanfrit, avant de rejoindre la petite famille des « Ludothèque » Third.

Book Summary:

This book is intended for readers around the world. Not only to lovers of the Devolver Digital publisher and video game lovers, but also to those who don't care or know anything about it. Why? Because it tells a story that tends towards the universal, shared between moments of distress, doubt, hope and joy. Devolver is a name synonymous with independent games, with a strong identity, as well as a singular and marked communication. Far from the often polite attitude of the great video game publishers, Devolver stands out for its rebellious, punk spirit, which goes hand in hand with a keen business sense. The result of a meticulous investigation by journalists Baptiste Peyron and Pierre Maugein, Devolver Behind the Scenes: Business and Punk Attitude offers, in an illustrated book, the complete and unpublished history of this atypical publisher, articulated around the reported comments of more than forty people gravitating around the Devolver sphere, including the five founders.

Book Summary:

What gamer hasn’t tried Final Fantasy IX ? "Final Fantasy IX is the closest to my ideal view of what Final Fantasy should be." This quote is from Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of the Final Fantasy saga.

Book Summary:

Through this study of Hayao Miyazaki's universe, discover the major influence of the Japanese animation master, whose works have marked Japanese animation and the world of cinema. Through his creativity, technical wizardry and talent for storytelling, Hayao Miyazaki has left an indelible mark on Japanese animation and world cinema. The animation master has been able to create magical worlds for a children’s story or a darker tale. But he has also known how to cast a cynical and innocent look on a world and its societies undergoing great changes and facing grim futures. And yet, his work is often reduced, firstly, to his handful of feature-length movies created under the auspices of Studio Ghibli, but also to a superficial view due to cultural elements that are extremely difficult to grasp for anyone outside of Japan. This work, which explains biographical elements and presents Studio Ghibli and the master’s entourage, will give you a detailed analysis of Hayao Miyazaki’s works, decrypting their themes and offering transversal keys to their understanding. This book will offer you a detailed analysis of Hayao Miyazaki's works, enriched with explanations on biographical aspects. The book will also provide you with reading keys that will allow you to better understand the specifically Japanese cultural elements present in the works.

Book Summary:

Discover an analytic work of Sekiro, a game that spectacularly marked the 2010s. Few video game series can boast having marked the 2010s as much as Souls. FromSoftware mainly owes this amazing and unexpected success to the talents of the now-famous Hidetaka Miyazaki, whose radical vision of video games was quick to charm and win around players. In May 2014, the director was promoted to president of FromSoftware. He could have continued to create Souls forevermore, but instead chose to develop new franchises. The first true representative of this new era was Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, a game with unprecedented richness and flawless thematic consistency. This book will discuss the work’s development process, an analysis of the storyline and characters, the soundtrack, themes, and its historical, cultural and artistic influences. It will also present an analysis of the problem with Sekiro’s difficulty—which saw a lot of ink spilled at its release—and take a look at the evolution of Miyazaki’s games. This book will provide you with an analysis of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice : it will discuss the game creation process, as well as the themes, the storyline, the characters, the soundtrack and its diferent influences. The book will also present an analysis of the problem with the game's difficulty and the evolution of Miyazaki's games. ABOUT THE AUTHOR It is by exploring the world of Super Metroid at the age of seven that Ludovic Castro finds himself for the first time captivated by a world of video games. A big fan of Japanese RPGs, he later became passionate about the background stories about his favorite games in Gameplay RPG magazine. Now a doctor of theoretical chemistry, he sometimes manages to find enough free time to write about his favorite series, Megami Tensei.

Book Summary:

Discover Katsuhiro Otomo’s visionary work and post-Akira Japanese comic culture. The catalyst of an era, of a world that was unaware of its downfall, Katsuhiro Otomo’s visionary work marked a turning point in the industry. First, in his homeland, Japan, in terms of graphics and plot on an entire generation of post-Akira artists who adopted his attention to detail, his realism and his dizzying views. But above all with his international reach, which threw Japanese comic strips and animations into the limelight in numerous countries, by trampling the rest of the world’s notion that cartoons are exclusively for children. This book dives headfirst into the radioactive culture that is the creative power of Katsuhiro Otomo, from the mangaka’s— already explosive—beginnings, up to winning recognition for Akira. Discover the themes and influences of this fundamentally anti-establishment work by exploring its socio-economic or simply literary aspects. The author of the work analyzes the phenomenon, from its tiny seed to the mighty tree, and reveals why Akira is, above all, a purely Japanese series. This book will provide you with an analysis of the socio-historical context of Akira. It aims to help Western readers to better understand the escence of this graphic and narrative treasure. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Rémi Lopez graduated with a degree in Japanese from Bordeaux III University. In 2004, he cut his teeth as an author when he wrote website columns on video game soundtracks. Two years later, he joined the Gameplay RPG magazine in which he carried out the same task. He then followed the then editor-in-chief, Christophe Brondy, and his entire team to a new project: the monthly Role Playing Game magazine. Rémi wrote The Legend of Final Fantasy VIII and the book on the Original Soundtrack for Pix'n Love publications in 2013.
