Hey all,

SiN: Episodes released by Ritual Entertainment (my previous employeer)

advertisement of this feature at all. I only mention that because I'm
trying to think of ways to spread the idea of CC more. It's not enough
for me to write about it over at http://gamescc.rbkdesign.com/, my
site only gets a small number of people visiting it. But if games

and then eventually, it'll become expected and standard in games, I
