The Week in Patches and Demos – Dec 10 thru 15
Another Saturday, another round of patches. This week though, I have decided to include the latest clients and demos in the same post because – to be honest – we did not receive too many during the week. Regardless of whether or not you are playing something mainstream or a little off the charts, I am sure our wonderful brethren at FileFront have something that will make you slowly come out of your potato chip induced coma and take notice.For more information on any of the titles listed, just click on the respective link. Enjoy!
