Welcome back to another roundup. This week we start with the latest coverage on Hunted: The Demon’s Forge to share. PC Games Hardware has an interview with inXile President, Matt Findlay. Here’s an excerpt from PC-oriented interview…

Quick update on some magazines you might want to check out. From our UK offices, we found out about the two above covers. The current issue of PC Play (Croatia) features a cover story on RAGE. Game Republic in Italy, meanwhile, has a brand new cover story on Fallout: New Vegas.

Stateside, I found some interesting coverage reading some of the latest magazines to hit my desk. Both PlayStation: The Official Magazine and OXM have new previews for RAGE in their July issues.

Finally, the July issue of GamePro has a section called “Snapshot,” which takes a closer look at a given screenshot, and this time around it’s for Fallout: New Vegas. Those that checked out our New Vegas Fan Interview will definitely be interested in seeing this exclusive screenshot featuring a Nightkin.
