Klei Entertainment sets the stage for Shank 2

Many years ago a man and his two handy blades, jagged though they were, turned an entire crime organization on its head.

We here at XBLAFans were lucky enough to score an interview with Klei Entertainment’s CEO, Jamie Cheng. Take a look at what he had to say after the jump. Read More
