SNES Omnibus Spotlight #10 - Chris Baker

Like me, Chris Baker wrote for the late, lamented All Game Guide, where we wrote descriptions and reviews for too many games to count for a variety of consoles back during the late 1990s and early 2000s, including the Super Nintendo. It’s awesome to be back working with Chris as he contributed some truly enjoyable and informative stories to my SNES Omnibus project. Not only that, he recruited other industry insiders to write for the books! Like Chris Cavanaugh, John Jackson Miller, Michael Thomasson, Earl Green, and a few others, he's gone on to further literary success after the All Game Guide folded, including writing books, such as Chris’s entertaining tome, WRONG! Retro Games,You Messed Up Our Comic Book Heroes!

Here’s Chris’s bio as it will appear in TheSNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M):

Chris Baker (Twitter and YouTube: @cbake76), with years-long stints at Marvel, LucasArts, and Gazillion, has worked on more than 40 games—some of which you’ve even heard of! To name a few: Marvel vs. Capcom 3, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, five “Spider-Man” games, Star Wars Battlefront II, LEGO Star Wars II…plus quite a few he’d rather not mention while trying to make himself sound awesome. He authored the well-received WRONG! Retro Games, You Messed Up Our Comic Book Heroes!, and his journalism credits include Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine, Glixel, and—where he worked with author BrettWeiss! Find Chris at
