Heavy hitters in the scores this month! Well, except for Ceville, but even that's not SO bad.

We were pleasantly surprised by this month's games. Next month's review code is not quite as remarkable... though there is a big scorer in Issue 6...

Interesting stuff in here. I read your article on the Path and the one about aggression in gamers.

I'm not sure I really by into the whole psychology of gaming thing in that second article... I mean, sure people get frustrated when playing like that - I see it in my brother all the time when we're playing together - but I don't know that it's just something strictly related to games. But maybe that wasn't really the point.

I also read the Men of War review, since that was the one I was most interested in.

I was actually supposed to be in the beta for that game... but because they pushed the beta release like a whole year, by the time it came out I was too busy to actually try it or anything. Which is a shame. Seemed like an awesome game. I'm glad it scored favorably, though; that's always a plus.
