My apologies for this newsletter being sent on a Sunday rather than the usual Saturday, but it is magazine publication week, and I wanted to make sure that was live before the newsletter went out. We have an AMAZING magazine for your reading pleasure this week - just scroll on down to the bottom of the newsletter to check out what we’ve got in there for you.
Otherwise, this week we had the absolute thrill to interview the team behind the upcoming Touken Ranbu Warriors (review of that next week!), and the pleasure of reviewing a most excellent Vampire: The Masquerade title.
And of course, don’t forget to check out the words of our friends in the independent games press. They’ve been busy too!
Have an awesome weekend, everyone!
