Edge 237 notes

XBLi Treasure Treasure: Fortress Forage

From The Last of Us piece: actress Ashley Johnson, voice of Ellie, gave input on her character, and that’s why she has a knife in the trailer now…Ants controlled by fungus, cordyceps-infected, inspiration for the zombie plants.

Bugbear is using their own consumer-level track editor for Ridge Racer: Unbounded.

Gunpoint – the 2d spy gem, where you rewire lights and elevator doors, etc.

Great piece called The Untouchables where they critique Half-Life 2, Rez and Grim Fandango. Interesting Rez tidbit, Miz liked a game called Xenon 2: Megablast

Studio profile on Zen Studios, should read again later for pinball thoughts.
