Here's our next Saturday Heat Signature! This one looks at the up-and-coming "Castle Story," which attempts to merge real-time strategy with free-form building/city builder games. We've previewed Castle Story before, but this video run-down gives you the most recent information about the game's progress, including a summary of its development diaries and coolest features.

Take a look at the video for more information:

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
