LoreHound Crier: The Week at a Glance

Posted on Apr 20, 2012

It’s been another great week here at LoreHound. More PAX interviews have appeared, we’ve had a few exclusives, and there’s even been some game industry mudslinging.

Do You Care About Endgame Character Customization?

Posted on May 06, 2011

Each developer has its own definition of character customization. Cryptic Studios is probably the, ahem, champion of character customization.
