[GameSetLinks is GameSetWatch's daily link round-up post, culling from hundreds of weblogs and outlets to compile the most interesting longform writing, links, and criticism on the art and culture of video games.]

Finishing up the weekend with some fine GameSetLinks, this set includes some notes on PSN's line-up for 2009 - apparently including slightly obscure but super-neat former IGF finalist Hammer Fall (pictured) -- as well as a couple of other fun GDC-related links.

Also hanging out in here - an epic iHobo thread starter on QTEs. Even I'm surprised about how QTEs have sneaked into games in recent years, after Shen Mue and friends, but in general, they work. Don't they? Do they? Questions!

Well well well:
