On this episode of the Bit War Veterans we look in to Prima game strategy guides, and other companies like Brady and Versus. When did they start? How are they made? And why did they go under?

We read tweets from our followers about the guides they owned and the memories they had of flipping through their pages.

The guides we had are precious to us. We look at when they stopped being a useful commodity and turned into more of a collector's item. Is there a place in the future for game guides?
