The Symposium

There is only one symposium worth reading at the moment - games journalists on games journalism gathered into a herd by Shawn Elliot. I'm an interested outsider: as a potential review target at some future point, the only game reviews which I seem to learn stuff about the game from seem to be gaming diaries. Case in point is Tom Chick, who specialises in this kind of writing: he's just started writing about Fall From Heaven II, a Civilisation IV modification, in this mod. I expect to come away from this with a much greater understanding of the game, than any review I could care to name.
