Elsewhere today, Owen walked three feet from one part of the office to the other to take advantage of our exclusive access to Tom Francis, who talked a bit about the game he's making . We also took a close look at Dawn of War 2's Last Stand mode and did a little dance when we learned Bioware had given us free copies of Mass Effect 2 . Then, fending off a bout of dance-exhaustion, we sat down and compiled a list of everything else that's been going on in PC gaming news. Here it is.

Based in Bath with the UK team, Tom loves strategy games, action RPGs, hack ‘n slash games, digital card games… basically anything that he can fit on a hard drive. His final boss form is Deckard Cain.
