Eastern Echo did produce a preview, along with one from Alex Alvarado from Hustle Belt, who also looked this week into EMU at the season's midpoint, which helps put this game into perspective, I think. There's also one more from Jeremy at Eagle Totem, which I caught and then forgot to include here initially.
