Whew! First week and we didn’t set too many things on fire. In case you missed any of the hubbub from the last few days, here’s a chance to catch up:
BOARD STIFF Tiffany continues the Story Telling mini-series with the devilishly fun Aye, Dark Overlord.
SWORDS AND ZIPPERS Mike revisits the Last Story one last time to look at how little details can make a linear experience into an extended, open adventure.
FREEPLAY In the latest FreePlay, Ed installs two mods for Skyrim and through chattering teeth lets you know just how great they are.
THE VAULT For the latest Vault, Lou opens the Atlus chest and rummages around to bring back a classic genre-blend never to be forgot.
READ.ME Mike takes a look at the visual novel medium and how it has been adapted, to varying degrees of success, over a couple specimens that actually made it to Europe/North America.
