PAX 10: Lost in Shadow deserves a little spotlight

Half a dozen Lost in Shadow screenshot unveiled

A word like "unveiled" gives an air of drama that probably should not be used to describe the release of screenshots. If I go back and change the headline now, I'll have to spend another twenty minutes trying to find a way to reference the ...
