Fable Legends Preview Exclusive: We Reveal The Future Of Fable

I’m so stoked to be writing this Fable Legends preview. Fable Legends is such an interesting title: a new direction for Lionhead and one of the best series of the past decade. I’ve played through the Fable Legends beta and have the full scoop on the Fable Legends single player campaign, multiplayer, release date, and everything else you need to know….  Heading to Xbox One and PC later in the year, and offering cross-platform play between console and PC users, Fable Legends has already been met with criticism. The decision to make Fable Legends free-to-play has been a controversial one....

Seven Sacred Beasts Review

Mattie is a summoner who can use his abilities to use monsters, sort of in a Pokemon-style way. The one thing Mattie loves above everything else is money. That’s right. He’s extremely shallow. Not much of a hero, really. He’s no interest in fame, honor or nobility, just cold hard cash. Then one day Mattie stumbles upon a woman in a den full of monsters. She promises to pay Mattie 100 million in gold (whole lot of mulah that) if he can be victorious in a tournament that will determine the greatest sorceror in the world. Clearly this woman is up to something–no one offers that sort of cash–but just what exactly is she after? Mattie journeys off to sin the battle and to earn his cash reward.

Crosstown Smash Review

Crosstown Smash: Sounds like a lame 80s disco; is actually an awesome beat-em-up / RPG.  PANC software clearly couldn’t decide whether they want to go for a RPG or a beat-em-up, so they just went ahead and did both simultaneously. Crosstown Smash takes the traditional beat-em-up formula, in the classic style of Streets of Rage, then pours on top of it all your favourite RPG elements, with rogue-like mechanics. Then, just to add a little cherry on top of these RPG –beat-em-up pie, they’ve added some humour too, with a hilarious storyline. As a sort of cream to pour over...

Anodyne: An Excellent and Original RPG A’La Zelda

Anodyne

Anodyne is a retro-inspired game developed by two man team Analgesic Productions which will instantly bring a tear to your eye as it conjures feelings of nostalgia for the 16-bit era.

The game begins by giving you a very simple tutorial that let’s you know how to play. The controls are simple, with directional buttons, attack and jump. The controls belie the complexity of the game’s design.

Playing in a top-down view, Anodyne uses a static camera that simply jumps to the next screen when you walk past the edge of the screen you’re on (like old school RPGs). As you would expect, you’ll find yourself some weaponry early on with which you can dispatch various enemies, some of which offer plenty of challenge, making strategy a key component of gameplay. Of course, the biggest enemies are the bosses, which are found at the end of every dungeon. Many of them will test even the most hardcore of gamers. You’re definitely going to die many times over, but you won’t mind too much thanks to a very high quality of gameplay.

Games Like Elsword : Best Anime Style MMO RPG Fighters

Elsword

One of the reasons for Elsword’s surge in popularity is thanks to its unique game design. Released in 2007 and featuring excellent MMO gameplay with a focus on skills and combat, Elsword is a side scrolling game that combines both 3D and 2D to create one of the most impressive 2.5 D games that we’ve played.

The gameplay mechanics in Elsword will be familiar to MMORPG fans. They have a large emphasis on skill and when in combat you must rely on precise timing to deliver combos of hits. This creates a skills based gameplay which is far more engaging and enjoyable than the combat seen in most MMORPGs. It allows you to build your skills and to rely on your gameplay precision rather than being at the mercy of stats and figures.
