[In highlights from Gamasutra's Member Blogs, our bloggers write about diverse topics, such as Deus Ex, lessons from Apple's App Store, and the weird designers behind unsettling video game puzzles.] Member Blogs can be maintained by any registered Gamasutra user, while invitation-only Expert Blogs -- also highlighted weekly -- are written by selected development professionals.
