2012’s Best Interactive Video Game Stories
After looking over the games released in 2012 that have garnered high critical praise, made it on to Game of the Year lists and the games that have personally left the largest impression on me, there is one theme that has emerged, 2012 was a year where storytelling in games was at the forefront of many peoples minds.

Crispin Freeman Interview

Crispin Freeman Interview
When it comes to anime and video game voice actors, the big names tend to pop up all over the place in one form or another.
