Top videos of the week - Alien: Isolation, Dark Souls 2 and gaming communities
This week I've put together some pretty mixed videos covering a dev diary on the upcoming Alien: Isolation game, can't believe we've waited this long for a game like this to actually come. Next is Dark Souls 2 which I believe has a pretty good following in RPG circles, I'll admit I've never actually played the first one, but this sounds interesting. I'm a community manager by trade, so I love all things about communities so I'm capping it off with a pretty feel good story, bringing some positivity to your midweek with some of the good things that come out of the gaming community.
