While having an ebook is nice (there’s the portability, the searchability, and other such things good about them), I guess I’m just a traditionalist. I like having an actual book in my hand when I’m gaming. For those of you that are like me who have been looking at Era: Hitman, the ...

There’ve been some high-profile assassinations around the world lately. I certainly don’t condone such things, but it’s easy to see how people can be fascinated by when such a thing happens. Whether it’s nerve agent delivered by a spray of “water” or a poison-fille...
