>>>Hey all,
>>>
>>>SiN: Episodes released by Ritual Entertainment (my previous employeer)
>>>a couple weeks ago features closed captioning. Unfortunately, due to a
>>>bug, it's actually missing some key dialog, but for the most part it
>>>does have captions for sounds and dialog. So that makes it the 4th
>>>game.
>>>
>>>Unfortunately, I'm sure 99% of the players won't know that. There's no
>>>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
>>>start advertising that as a feature, more and more people will see it
>>>and then eventually, it'll become expected and standard in games, I
>>>hope.
>>>
>>>-Reid
