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.

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.

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