Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Seven Haunted Seas Trailer

The E3 mayhem is over so I can take a breather but that doesn’t mean that another sweet trailer didn’t just come to my attention.

Said trailer came out about a month ago but I only heard of the game while reading the latest issue of Play (Bayonetta cover) last night.
The game looks really interesting. The first thing you’ll notice is the art style which is gorgeous and obviously reminiscent of The Curse of Monkey Island but much darker.

The game will be an action RPG and you will travel the great sea to discover new islands but the developers have said they want this travel to be a very dangerous endeavor where you will have to face hard weather, sea monsters and more.
The team at Titmouse Games said the game was a mix between Fable and Wind Waker with a darker tone.

In any case I’m keeping an eye on this one because I love the art style and I love pirates and ocean exploration sounds great.

Details for the Second Fable II DLC

fable_2_art_07Following the Knothole Island DLC from January, the See the Future content will be released in may for 560MS (why 560? no clue).

With this DLC you will be able to lift a curse on three items bought through Murgo the Trader and once these are freed the player will be able to have a vision of Albion’s future for those of the Heroic bloodline.

The content will also feature new characters, new monsters and new quests. Some of which includes The Ghosts of the Snowglobe and The Cursed Knight. Another feature will be the Colosseum were you will be able to compete to gain new goodies.

In addition Lionhead said that new items and emotes will be available for free for those you do not wish to buy the full DLC.

Fable Pentalogy?

Peter Molyneux has always been one for juicy statements and today he struck again. In an interview with GameTrailers from last week he announced that he had plans for Fable III, IV and V and that it was all part of a big arc as would be evident once we play Fable II in October.
He also said he was contemplating doing a sports or driving game simply because these genres seem ‘locked in stone’ and he likes the challenging aspect of making something different.
One can only hope.

Now where is Syndicate?!

Activision, Brutal Legend Survives

Following yesterday’s eventful announcement Tim Schafer announced in a very straight to the point manner that “Brutal Legend is fine.”. Roger and out.

Delays, Delays and Delays!

  • Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.K. from 2008 to Early 2009
  • Battlefield Heroes from Summer 2008 to 2008
  • Tiberium from End 2008 to fiscal year 2010 (April 2009-March 2010)…Ouch!
  • Brothers in Arms Hell’s Highway from from August 2008 to September 2008, because apparently they want to coincide the release of the game with the anniversary of Operation Green Market (which the game depicts). If you have no clue what I’m talking about do yourself a favor and go rent Band of Brothers…NOW!
