Book readings are rubbish.

So, when Steve McNeil was asked to do some book readings in support of his excellent book about the history of videogames, Hey! Listen!, he needed to come up with a plan.

Employing his stand-up skills, those of his long time tech collaborator Rob Sedgebeer, and director Paul Byrne, Steve set about working towards that seemingly impossible goal - the good book reading.

We present the fruits of their labours; Hey! Listen! (Live!). It's half standup, half game show, and as little book reading as possible.

Also included on the disc is:
- An exclusive interview with Steve, Rob and Paul Byrne
- 'WiFi Wars' 2015 show (their first annual lecture at the Royal Institution, London)
- Steve's 'History of Games' (Highlights from the first year of this YouTube series)
- Steve's 'Best of Twitch' clip compilation

That's nearly 2.5 hours of extras!



 
Equal parts hilarious and informative, Hey! Listen! should be in every gamer`s library.
- Lucy James, (Gamespot)

An informative, accessible romp through the early years of the games industry. All hail Il pirata pallido; the gaming hero we never knew we needed.
- Adam Rosser BBC Radio 5Live

Steve McNeil is funny, knowledgeable, and a massive, shameless, nerd. His brilliant book reminded me just how much of my life I`ve wasted. If the Golden Age of Gaming is a horse, then Steve`s book is the stable.
- Paul Rose (aka Mr Biffo), Digitiser

A thoroughly enjoyable look at the early days of video gaming - comprehensive and fun. Loved it!
- Stuart Ashen (aka ashens)

The `A La Recherche du Temps Perdu` of the gaming community. The `A La Recherche du Temps Pew-Pew-Pew`, as it were.
- Dara O`Briain

If `Games Master` was a Nobel title passed on through the ages like `Duke of York` or `Rear of the Year` rather than simply the name of a 90s magazine and TV show then Steve McNeil would surely be the current holder of the esteemed position. What I`m saying is, he knows a LOT about games...
- Scroobius Pip

Taking us on a historical journey from the very early days all the way through to the late 1990s the book tells the stories of the men and women behind some of the most wonderful (and occasionally awful) games of the golden age, the fierce rivalries, bizarre business practices and downright bonkers risks taken during the pioneering days of computer and video gaming. This informal yet extremely well-researched book manages to educate and entertain in equal measure and this - dare I say - well-informed retrohead actually learnt a good deal. A thoroughly enjoyable read!

- Mark Howlett (aka Lord Arse)

Hugely funny, and full of fantastic facts about the history of video games. But enough about me; Steve`s book is also quite good.

- Ellie Gibson, Eurogamer
