Before we get all festive at our holiday party this weekend, I thought I’d share some compelling coverage for our games.

Recently, there’s been some really great coverage for Brink. If you haven’t already, be sure to read CG Society’s feature on the game’s art direction — complete with never-before-seen concept art for the game (like the image below)

Additionally, in the past week, Time.com’s Techland has had a couple features on the game. Head there to read Evan Narcisse’s quick-look preview, as well as an interview with Richard Ham and Paul Wedgwood.

More after the break…There’s a pair of new interviews with members of the Fallout: New Vegas staff online. Delta Attack has an interview with technical producer Jason Fader, while Designing Sound interviews audio director Scott Lawlor.
