So it’s been a crazy holiday so far, and I apologize for being dreadfully behind on updates. So first, here’s part three of my As-I-Play Rise of the Tomb Raider over on The Learned Fangirl. For all that I make … Read More »
This week’s AIP post on Bastion over on TLF–things change up a bit in terms of the usual pattern.
