The Game Changer Channel blog (Classic Games Redefined)

This is the blog formally known as GamesByRich.com:Classic Games Redefined blog. It focuses the thoughts of the design process of Rich Hutnik and other things Rich, gaming related (pretty much), finds interesting. It has been changed to reflect a clear focus in regards to what is being worked on, and also in relation to the new name for the YouTube channel.
