    Description

    From the best-selling author of Blood, Sweat, and Pixels comes the next definitive, behind-the-scenes account of the video game industry: how some of the past decade's most renowned studios fell apart - and the stories, both triumphant and tragic, of what happened next.

    Jason Schreier's groundbreaking reporting has earned him a place among the preeminent investigative journalists covering the world of video games. In his eagerly anticipated, deeply researched new book, Schreier trains his investigative eye on the volatility of the video game industry and the resilience of the people who work in it. 

    The business of videogames is both a prestige industry and an opaque one. Based on dozens of first-hand interviews that cover the development of landmark games - Bioshock Infinite, Epic Mickey, Dead Space, and more - on to the shocking closures of the studios that made them, Press Reset tells the stories of how real people are affected by game studio shutdowns, and how they recover, move on, or escape the industry entirely. 

    Schreier's insider interviews cover hostile takeovers, abusive bosses, corporate drama, bounced checks, and that one time the Boston Red Sox's Curt Schilling decided he was going to lead a game studio that would take out World of Warcraft. Along the way, he asks pressing questions about why, when the video game industry is more successful than ever, it's become so hard to make a stable living making video games - and whether the business of making games can change before it's too late.

    Audio Quality is Inconsistent

    Sounds like random portions had to be recorded by the narrator from home with whatever he had available. These portions are extremely short. maybe 2 words here. Maybe 3 sentences there. Very short but very common, randomly spread out throughout the book. These short snippets sound compressed, similar to the sound one may have on a Nintendo DS. I switched frequently from 3 different Bluetooth devices and my Galaxy Note 10+'s built in speakers. These brief moments of poorer audio quality would occur across all four of my means of playback, suggesting to me that it was a problem on the recording end and not my playback method.

    Another equally entertaining and informative book about the game industry. It does into fairly detailed examples\stories of the industry's instability that all nicely connect or overlap as if it was the MCU.

    Wonderful look into the unstable world of game dev

    It was bitter sweet to hear the accounts of people chewed up and spit out by the industry

    Must Read/Listen for Gamers

    Extremely evocative storytelling with a wide variety of fascinating, yet sad, stories. Ultimately, it does end on a hopeful note, with the desire for work from home to become a better standard.

    Interesting but too forced left wing opinions

    The book is well read and interesting but I could do without all the liberal views. Why did the author feel the need to crowbar anti Trump comments into this book? Stick to the story please!

    A Strong Case for Unionization in Game Development

    Just a fantastic listen from start to end about game development and its unspoken human cost. It was a roller coaster learning more about the development toll of major releases, both the critically acclaimed, the universally trashed, and the inbetweens, and how those game devs moved on.

    Great Insight

    Great insight into the industry and how it needs to change. I hope people who make larger decisions about how the video game industry works read this and make changes.

    Tragic adventures of the videogame studios

    Good sequel to blood sweat and pixels. Focused in the Rise and fall of Studios instead of specific videogames, keeps beign interesting.

    Very average....

    I think this book had little interesting information, just a few stories and nothing else. Sold purely on Jason being a relatively famous journalist - I enjoyed his previous book way better. No solid data, no analysis, no conclusions, just bunch of stories together in one book.

    Interesting and nice to listen to

    It seemed not quite as structured as Blood Sweat and Pixels and it felt a bit repetitive to hear all the lay-off stories. Still, it was very interesting and it reminded me of a similar situation in the Industry that I went through. I guess everyone who worked in games for a certain time has a story like this.
