Fable Legends was more fun than I’d like to admit

Fable 3 was rather divisive; a light-hearted playful romp, it paled in comparison to the previous games thanks to overzealous simplification. That game, and the middling Kinect-centric spinoff Fable: The Journey have sullied Fable’s name more than all of Peter Molyneux hyperbole could hope to. I entered a Gamescom session of the latest game bearing the once-beloved name, Fable Legends, with more than due trepidation. And then I had fun.

China’s mad movie texting idea will keep you away from cinemas

Watching movies in a cinema is a social experience. And may your particular god help you if you happen to hate people. While going to the movies usually involves encountering at least one pet peeve (sticky floors, overpriced food, Kervyn), nothing is more [continue @ themovies]

Sony doesn’t know why PS4 is so successful

Sony has sold a ridiculous number of PS4s, crossing the ten million mark as announced at Gamescom. This success goes way beyond their initial predictions or expectations and I'm sure Microsoft is hoping to replicate this with the Xbox One once they launch in the new territories this September. So how did Sony do it?

Destiny will eventually have custom PvP matches and beards

If you tooled around in the Destiny beta, then there’s no denying that this game is built on the DNA of Halo, with that sensation extending to the Crucilbe and various multiplayer modes. And that’s a  good thing. Halo was home to some of the best multiplayer on the planet, with custom matches paving the way for a massively creative Forge to build all kinds of games. While Destiny won’t have that level of PvP at launch, expect to see something done in the near future.

Battlefield Hardline at Gamescom

When you’re at a convention like Gamescom in some sort of capacity as press – particularly when you’re there with a small team – your time is rather limited. You have three days to see and do as much as you possibly can, before buggering off. So it stings  when your time is essentially wasted – by late appointments, unnecessarily long queues or  the worst offender; showing exactly what we’ve seen before. Such was the case with EA’s Battlefield: Hardline.

Atari rebooting Alone in the Dark and Haunted House

If you think horror in gaming, the names Silent Hill and Resident Evil are sure to pop into your head fairly quickly. Names like Alone in the Dark and Haunted House are from a bygone era of gaming, but Atari thinks it's time they came back.

The Gamescom Bloodborne demo is dark

We all knew that Dark Souls was going to be a dark game - it says so in the name. From Software is now bringing us Bloodborne and you can see the section of the game that they showed off at Gamescom. Prepare to lose some of your own hope and humanity.

Why hello there Resident Evil Revelations 2 box art

A while back, I had the misfortune to review Resident Evil 6, which was a clunky orgy of explosions with a personality as deep as TV housewife of wherever, and gameplay that matched its vapid attempt to hit all the demographics. It’s been a while since then, and on reflection, I’ve decided that I’m still 100% right about that waste of a game. What was a better game in that franchise however, was Resident Evil Revelations. And it’s getting a very well-deserved sequel.

Lego Batman 3: go beyond Gotham or to the 1960s

If you've played one Lego game you've played them all, right? Well, not exactly. Sure, the gameplay might be fairly similar, but each version brings in a fun take on characters and plenty of cool new experiences. Lego Batman 3 expands on the DC universe in a really fun new way.

The Xbox One gets memetastic with Reddit

In The US and Canada, the Xbox One is now home to Reddit, via an actual, official app, called ReddX. This is one of the most ludicrous things I’ve ever heard of, as the console has a perfectly functional browser. Beyond that..who wants to sit and go through Reddit from their consoles?  That said, it exists – and like some other apps on the Xbox One, it comes with achievements. The pictures from those achievements are all of Major Nelson cosplaying, I guess, as a bunch of memes. It’s ludicrous.

Comic Book 101 – Crazy Comic Crossovers

There’s a certain charm to be had from seeing unlikely heroes being thrown into the same book and forced to temporarily fight one another before settling their differences and working to stop a common threat. We’ve seen Batman team-up with Judge Dredd. Superman hang out with Spider-Man. The X-Men have even tangled with the Teen Titans. But then again, those adventures weren’t exactly mental. Unlike these crazy crossovers, that is.

In Other News – 19 August, 2014

I had intended for this week’s Tasty Tuesday to centre on the epicurean delights we encountered in Cologne while we were at Gamescom. A bit of a food diary. Truth is, beyond the beer and the occasionally excellent brezel, the food there is rather bland, uninteresting and awful. You can only eat so many currywurst or bratwurst before you start wanting to eat your own arms. And then it all changed.
