Confessions of a teenage asset ripper

I never played Secret of Mana 2 on the Super Nintendo, but I could recognize its trees in a blink. I saw them in countless other games, their lush branches decorating the corners of fantasy worlds filled with magic, dragons, and bugs. Oh, so many bugs.

Eurogamer: No One Lives Forever Retro

Yesterday saw my No One Lives Forever retrospective appear on the mighty Eurogamer. Maybe you'd like to read a thing like that. A thing like that begins like this: They say money makes the world go round, but this is somewhat inaccurate. Leftover momentum from the solar nebula makes the world go round. Money, in fact, is not responsible for rotation, gravity, nor indeed any…
