123w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an EVO update today spotlighting Street Fighter X Tekken including PS Vita development details.
To quote: While the world's greatest fighters were trading blows during EVO, I was scrambling to trade words with top fighting game developers who attended the tournament.

To quote: Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy series of interactive Gamebooks - "The adventures in which YOU are the Hero!" - have been published in 27 countries in 23 languages and have sold over 16 million copies.
Talisman of Death, one of the best-known Fighting Fantasy adventures, is the latest minis title from Laughing Jackal.
