Briefly: The News
A bunch of interesting things have happened today, so I thought I would throw together a brief post. The Good: New Dreamfall from Ragnar Tornquist's new studio - more info at Kotaku and an interview at Rock Paper Shotgun. Halo 4 Creators Introduce Lifetime Ban For Sexism - An awesome initiative, and we can all agree that Kiki Wolfkill is an awesome name. The Bad: Chivalry Dev said adding women to their game would be "degrading", with bonus "missing the point". The Headdesk: The Vita is like a lady with 4 boobs. Anything else going on that we're missing out on? Comment away!
