Like I suspect many of you are, I’m also a very big fan of almost all the work coming out of the Extra Credits team on YouTube. For the past 7 or 8 years I’ve been watching their shows, I’ve learned about all facets of game design and the games industry, and even picked up…

Hopefully they’ll be able to turn things around. “Why don’t more AAA games launch with a microtransaction-free grace period?” Another one of the valuable lessons to be learned from the recent Battlefront 2 fiasco.

Anyway…) I’ve got a few ideas lined up for upcoming blog posts, but getting those ideas on paper has been more difficult than I expected.

Upcoming Site Changes (November 2017)

Upcoming Site Changes (November 2017)

Alex and I did not begin our careers as professional programmers, so building our site has been a long and challenging journey. There’s been plenty to learn about coding and design in order for us to deliver an enjoyable experience to our users. Each step of this learning process has felt frustratingly slow at times,…
