Consoles and Controllers


The Console is home to characters from many games.

You will take your place among them. All of you go about your digital lives. When the Owner’s not around, you don’t have to follow your game's script. You can do whatever you want, go wherever you want.

That doesn’t mean life is worry-free. You can explore all the worlds in all the games, visit the Console’s various sections, and enjoy all the sights and sensations they have on offer.

But things need to be the way they should be when the Owner returns.

You have all the time in the world to rehearse your game’s script. You’re ready to play your part, as any good character would. But the same script gets boring quickly.

Adventure, have fun, and make the most of the world! Just clean up any messes before the Owner gets back.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
