VA-11 Hall-A adds remastered Prologue chapters

Cyberpunk bartending game VA-11 Hall-A [official site], which Sin Vega quite liked, has launched a free update adding new story chapters. Well, old chapters. Renovated old chapters.

Mix Drinks For Cyberpunk Dogs: Valhalla

Who cares about future-dogs? Call of Duty: Ghosts mind-controls its dog, Westwood's Blade Runner game blew its up, and Dog of Dracula, well, just look how he turned out. Is life so grim for all future-dogs? Not if you're any good at cyberpunk bartending game VA-11 HALL-A (or Valhalla, because that's just awful). Sukeban Games have released a prologue chapter of their tend 'em up…
