Welcome to the March 2010 edition of K Monthly, a look back at some of the best original coverage, including reviews, previews, features, weekly columns and more from Kotaku.
Don't miss our reporting from this year's PAX East gathering, Penny Arcade's video game convention for the video game fan, and the annual Game Developers Conference, which spawns more than just hands-on previews of the most exciting upcoming games, but insight from and interviews with the video game industry's most fascinating people.
