It’s magazine week! The September issue of the Dee Dee Zine is now available, and I know I say this every month, but I really think the magazine is going from strength to strength. This issue brings literature, television, JRPGs and more together, features new authors and artists that we haven’t worked with before, and plenty more! Check out all the details below.
Of course, with September being the nightmare for the backlog that it is, we didn’t get a rest in terms of the game reviews either. The headline act this week is the long awaited western release of The Legend of Heroes: Trails From Zero, and it doesn’t disappoint on any level, but be sure to check out Wylde Flowers and Soulstice too, because those were both very nice surprises indeed.
Finally, be sure to check out some of the stuff by our friends in the independent gaming press. It’s a tough gig out there, with more and more media outlets shedding staff. We indies have to band together and, frankly, it’s where a lot of the best games writing comes from. Just check out the stuff they’ve produced this week and enjoy the read!
Thanks as always for reading DDNet, and have a great weekend everyone!
