E3 is over and most of our previews from that industry gala are up now, but today we got coverage of something a little different. HORIZON is billed as a sort of “E3 for indies,” and the two pieces that Liz Rugg wrote today are great for those who tend away from AAA titles.

Otherwise, Jim wrote a feature on the Xbox One’s DRM, the Podtoid crew released another episode, Hamza asked if Nintendo is doing enough, and so much more happened on this fine day.
