Colorwind Reviews Fable II

Oh Peter Molyneux. You always dream better than you can create. You and your previous team at Lionhead Studios are ambitious, I’ll give you that. However, after playing Fable II, I’m convinced that the developer doesn’t actually know how to properly make a game. Most of the game is mechanically and technically either unpolished, underdeveloped, or unintuitive. However, conceptually and practice, the game manages to be enjoyable despite its best efforts not to be.

Game Pitch: Xbox Champions (Part 1)

With Sony’s Smash Bros rip-off PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale coming to the PlayStation 3 and Vita next month, I started to think, like I’m sure others have, about what a similar game would be like from Microsoft. I’ve heard many say that Microsoft doesn’t have enough characters to make such a game. I agreed with this sentiment but my curiosity drove me to do some research. I ended up not only finding enough characters but thinking of the game mechanics. So here’s my pitch for a Smash Bros style game using the stable of characters Microsoft has as well as a few guest characters.
