Roundup of Unusual Size: The ABCDs of the Day â€“ Anime, Bayonetta, Cupcakes and Death
Nightmare Mode is republishing Dire Critic’s â€˜Roundup of Unusual Size’, a collection of links put together by site friend, Kris Ligman. It’s like Critical Distance, except we post on the six days of the week that Ben Abraham doesn’t, and there are usually more non-game-related articlesâ€¦ So I guess we’re actually more like Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Sunday Papers, except less British. You can send Kris recommendations for the roundups via Twitter or email!
