Strat Talk Round-Up #2

It’s been a few months since my first Strat Talk Round-Up, and there’s been a lot of interesting stuff discussed over on the Shoryuken front page.

Once again I’m providing a brief look at recent strategy articles that could be helpful to players who are keen to level up their game.

There’s a lot of potentially interesting articles this time around, so I’m only offering links and a quick quote from each. I recommend people follow-up any which sound relevant to you.

THANK YOU

I think most of the event organisers are still recovering from the weekend so I’d like to take this opportunity, behalf of the staff, to thank everyone for coming to EVO APAC and those watching the stream (despite its hiccups) over the two days.

Big thank you to our sponsors Electronic Gamers Guild; UTS Union; THQ; Good Games; and Madman Entertainment.
