Light Fall Preview

15h ago ... [b]From coolbeans[/b] I’m the type of fella that often sticks with playing games in or past their official 1.0 form. In the case of assessing that kind of work, it’s easier to write about because the developer has determined it as being shippable to mass market; “what you play is what you get” if I could twist that old phrase.

Not-so-Grim Perspective: An Interview with Arthur Bruno - Part 2

1d 14h ago ... [b]Herobyclicking:[/b] How do you balance storytelling and character class development?
