    Early Access has been an interesting new development for video games. Developers are now releasing games before they’re completed, selling them while they’re still in a buggy, but often still playable, state. Games like Assault Android Cactus, The Forest, and Broforce weren’t actually all the way done when I played them, and the developers...

    I didn’t think that marketing was the sort of thing I would ever have to learn as a writer. I just kind of hoped that my own creative ability would be enough to carry me through. I mean, if my writing was good, then people would come find me, right? I doubt I’m the...
