Roundup of Unusual Size: I am transfarring this to you FROM THE PAST.

Nightmare Mode is republishing Dire Critic’s ‘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 articles… 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!

We cap off the week with a nice, sedate, trim little roundup of links just to leave you hungry enough for tomorrow’s Critical Distance and Sunday Papers. The ROUS will be back on Monday with my highlights from each, so in the meantime, toodlealoo!
