Played To Death: Sam & Max Edition

The January issue of Played To Death is out now and can be downloaded for free. In addition to the magazine’s fine content, you can write in for a free beta key for NCSoft’s new MMORPG “Dungeon Runners.”

My reviews this month include Railroad Tycoon as this month’s Retrograde, Trauma Center for the Nintendo Wii, and a review of the long-awaited PC adventure game Sam and Max Episode 1: Culture Shock.

You can also read my paranoid rantings about how “PC vs. Console” is the wrong question in the “Vertical” op-ed column.

If you’re so inclined, you can help us [whore PTD at Digg]( /gaming_news/Free_Dungeon_Runners_beta_key_with_PTD_magazine_issue_301). You get absolutely nothing for doing this except my undying love.
