If you can’t get the NES Classic, relive the glory days with this book

The 8-bit era was truly golden.

Thanks to the debut of the cleverly repackaged NES Classic, we can experience the joy of playing some of the most memorable video games ever made this holiday. That is, if you’re able to find the console in the first place.

If not, a gift like Playing With Power: Nintendo NES Classics may be a good option until the elusive console comes back in stock. This hardcover retrospective contains reprinted pages of the classic magazine Nintendo Power as well as tributes to 17 of the NES’ most popular titles, including classics like Dr. Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong and more.

Not only is it reasonably priced at $29.99, but as of the time of this writing it can still arrive before Christmas if you order from Amazon.
