By the time you read this, Europa Universalis IV – the first in a barrage of releases over August/September – should be out. I’m planning something new and special by way of coverage; I think you guys will like it. Links for the day:
- A very enjoyable narrative Let’s Play of Alpha Centauri. Here is Edge’s retrospective on the game.
- A few months ago I discussed an early beta of an interesting indie game, Papers Please. The full game is now out, and Eurogamer has an excellent review.
- Rationalising our video game violence. This sounds a lot like what I did in Bioshock Infinite and especially Dishonored.
