The Journey Down: Chapter One [ Review ]
A big part of making a point-and-click adventure game work for players is to design it so that they can understand how the in-game world works right from the information they can gather right off the bat. It must not require too much tutorial since the gameplay mostly centers around the mouse pointer, so mechanics shouldn't be too complicated. This is something that The Journey Down seems to have gotten down quite nicely, ever since its low resolution version back in 2010. But with this new release in The Journey Down: Chapter One, it's now in HD and is the [...More
Fable: The Journey [ Review ]
Lionhead stirred up controversy when it was revealed that the next chapter in the Fable franchise was not going to be a traditional game that righted the wrongs of Fable III, but instead it was to be an on-rails adventure game that used Kinect for all of its control input. Traditional Fable fans were outraged at this change in direction, and while Fable: The Journey is a rough adventure, I think those disgruntled Fable fans may be the ones that will find the most to like about this game.
Fable: The Journey is dependent on its plot. It is an on-rails [...More
Fable: The Journey - You vs. Kinect
Set to release very soon, on October 9th, Fable: The Journey is truly right around the corner. Despite being a part of the major Fable franchise, arguably Microsoft's most important RPG series, Fable: The Journey really hasn't gotten the same attention as previous entries. The reason for that is the game is releasing as a game that requires Kinect to play, serving as a spin-off in the series. To hype the game, Microsoft recently posted a demo on Xbox Live Marketplace, and I played through it, beginning to end, and came away with mixed feelings.
Unfortunately, the demo failed to touch [...More
Harry Potter for Kinect - Demo Impressions
I am usually a big proponent for Kinect. The device is brimming with potential, and I knew this ever since I saw it debut at E3. However, very few developers have taken advantage of the Kinect's unique capabilities, resulting in a lot of half-hearted cash-ins that have ultimately failed to take advantage of the unique capabilities of the hardware in any meaningful or intriguing fashion.
There have been plenty of licensed games on Kinect that have attempted to throw in motion control gimmicks onto an existing franchise for on-rails silliness. Harry Potter for Kinect is the latest licensed Kinect game, and [...More
Looking Forward: Halo 4, Borderlands 2, and Fable: The Journey
Halo 4 is undoubtedly one of the biggest upcoming releases. Every entry in the Halo franchise, even the spin-offs like Reach and ODST, are monumental video game events, selling millions of copies on the first day of release. Halo 4 will likely continue that success, but Halo 4 is ever the more interesting since it's the first original Halo game not developed by series creators Bungie. Will 343 Industries be able to successfully take the reigns and deliver a new Halo experience that can compete with the other major shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield? The first Borderlands game [...More
