Peter Sallale

Peter Sallale has always believed that story is the aspect of games with the most potential. Starting his gaming career with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, he fell in love with the medium and the unique tales that can be told when the "reader" is part of the action. As well as his appreciation for narrative, Peter uses his technical knowledge and production background to provide a unique perspective about the merits and downsides of game releases today.
