Well this is an interesting turn of events…
OK first thing first, the indie fighting game Skullgirls, after much trouble that I won’t go into, is back on track. They are currently porting to Windows and Linux and are running a donation drive on Indiegogo to fund what will be an initially free DLC.

Grinding Gear Games began their official Open Beta testing for Path of Exile this week (Jan 23). For those who are unfamiliar with the name, Path of Exile is your typical dungeon crawler based Adventure RPG.

For more information on the game, head on over to Pathofexile.com and check out their news feed. The Open Beta is also free, so don’t hesitate to download the game and check it out!
