Logitech have been at it again, this time working hard on a follow-up to the G302 MOBA mouse they released last year. This one is aptly named the G303 Daedalus Apex Mouse, and to simply look at the picture there doesn’t seem to be much different between it and […]
One of the questions I get asked quite a lot is what is my process? What magical formula do I use for writing or playing games? I love the question because the term “process” is almost whispered, like it’s an arcane ritual not for the common folk, only […]
