Fable Fortune fails to set itself apart in a crowded genre - Preview

Fable Fortune fails to set itself apart in a crowded genre - Preview

Eric Frederiksen

For a long time, digital tabletop games were more of a novelty than anything else. Games like Risk Factions and Carcasonne would pop up on the Xbox Live Arcade while we'd see stuff like Lords of Waterdeep hitting tablets. Now, though, the marketplace for these things is a crowded one. Blizzard's Hearthstone is the giant one to beat, but there are plenty of others. Elder Scrolls Legends ...

Middle-earth: Shadow of War redesigns Shelob as a humanoid, fans aren't pleased one bit

Middle-earth: Shadow of War redesigns Shelob as a humanoid, fans aren't pleased one bit

Ron Duwell

Monolith Productions is already messing with the Tolkien lore far too much in Middle-earth: Shadow of War to ever please the purists out there. Somewhere between forging a new ring of power, introducing new balrogs, and writing the most charming orc of all time, the developer hit a point where its game tips from Lord of the Rings high fantasy into just plain video gamey nonsense. I’m...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor save files will be a big help in Shadow of War

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor save files will be a big help in Shadow of War

Ron Duwell

Sharing save files between games? What the heck series is this, Suikoden? Nope, it’s Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Monolith Productions has confirmed that your save information from its predecessor Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will carry over and affect the experience of your new game. Talion’s worst nightmares will follow him from game to game if you tap into the old save file....

The Ys franchise is older than most Twitch streamers, watch this trailer and become a fan

The Ys franchise is older than most Twitch streamers, watch this trailer and become a fan

Ron Duwell

Go on, what do you have to lose? You’re only missing out on a treasure of the video game world and one of the few franchises that has survived three turbulent decades of video gaming. Ys has been around longer than a majority of Twitch’s user base, and yet, even after all these years, Nihon Falcom’s excellent series can’t find the same love as its contemporaries. You might have heard of...

BioWare compares Anthem to Star Wars since it's not "real hardcore science fiction"

BioWare compares Anthem to Star Wars since it's not "real hardcore science fiction"

Ron Duwell

BioWare revealed its newest IP Anthem during the opening hours of E3 2017, and it’s a title that has become shockingly divisive. Either it’s the greatest video game ever made and all you’ve ever dreamed of, or it’s a third-person co-op Destiny look-alike set in an open world with waypoints, sub-quests, and all the plug and play elements of the AAA gaming scene. Looking to cool those...

Swords of Ditto squeezes an entire Zelda game into just a few minutes

Swords of Ditto squeezes an entire Zelda game into just a few minutes

Eric Frederiksen

There’s nothing quite like a vast, expansive RPG. Exploration, discovery, combat, puzzles, and traps. You get all of it and come away with a good story. But what if you could squeeze all of that into just a few minutes? That’s the idea behind onebitbeyond’s The Swords of Ditto. I sat down last week at E3 and played a round of the game with director Jonathan “Bidds” Biddle, who...

Ashen continues the spirit of Dark Souls with lonely cooperative play

Ashen continues the spirit of Dark Souls with lonely cooperative play

Eric Frederiksen

Dark Souls fans will argue into eternity what makes the Souls series what it is. And I don’t think there’s one answer. But New Zealand developer Aurora44 has one take on that with Ashen, a dark, open-world game that takes more than a few pages from the Souls games to good effect. Ashen is a world without a sun. The only light comes from the glowing ash drifting about in the world. For...

Ubisoft answers if Skull and Bones has a swashbuckling single player mode

Ubisoft answers if Skull and Bones has a swashbuckling single player mode

Ron Duwell

Skull and Bones was the biggest surprise at Ubisoft’s E3 2017 press conference, but the lingering questions of Ubisoft’s previous multiplayer games raise legitimate concerns over just how long the game will be viable for. The Division lasted a year with many feeling that its potential and promised content had not been reached, and For Honor is already a forgotten memory. Many hope that...
