When I heard a few weeks back that a new Fable game was underway with a new developer attached, I experienced a rush of fond memories so vivid, playful, silly and heartfelt that I almost wobbled on my feet for a few seconds. I remembered setting off, barefoot, on a summer's day to a distant island where a cog-driven door emerged from the side of a hill. I remembered the moon peering down through sickly grey murk above bogland, where a monster covered in bracken and moss stood up to his waist in mud. Most of all, I remembered a house I once bought where the previous owner, thanks to a brilliant glitch, lived on long after I had killed them, partially stuck in one of the upstairs walls. Then, I started to think about the task of bringing a series like this back to life with a new creative team and in a new era. In a game so full of moving parts, so driven by whimsy and - perhaps - by accident, what single piece of Fable is absolutely indispensable? In which part of Fable does Fable truly … [Read more...] about What’s Fable really all about?

While we're with Square Enix, you can also find Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age on Switch for £25.95. I'm confident that's the lowest the port of the PS2 favourite has been so far. Meanwhile, over on the Square Enix Store, there's a sale on the Life is Strange 2 Collector's Edition for £44.99. The standard version is £24.99. Not an RPG, I know, but a deal's a deal! … [Read more...] about While away the hours with huge discounts on these massive RPGs
Losing is slow and boring and often a foregone conclusion. Winning isn’t much better, and battles usually end before they feel resolved. I just don’t like the design tbh. I won a game that I thought was a draw because we both had 6 points. But it turns out I won because one of my orcs was standing on an objective (these otherwise count for nothing unless someone draws the right cards). Things that surprised me never drew a reaction other than “Oh. Ok”. Sure you can customise the decks you draw from, but your fighters remain the same, and the only difference is in what objectives you might get, or whether you’ll have a chance to make your stabbiest orc even stabbier, or a chance he’ll get to lash out at his killer before he lands. Even the boards all look the same. … [Read more...] about Warhammer Underworlds: Online seems OK, I guess
