Fable III Co-Op: Better Late Than Never?

With a some extra time on our hands over the recent holiday weekend, my household dug a little further into some multiplayer options through Game Pass. We steered clear of MMOs and looked for local multiplayer and co-op options. In doing so, a huge surprise rose to the top: Fable III. “Wait, WHAT?” was my…

Who in their right mind starts playing a “dead” game?

After having a so-so time playing DC Universe Online, my search for easy-going, console-based multiplayer/MMORPG ventures continued. I had made a short list of possibilities, and after a quick round of eenie, meenie, miny, moe, I ended up at another decades-old game, TERA. I knew nothing about the game save for the fact that I…

Low-Level Multiplayer is the Best

A while back, I started playing the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game, and I’ve learned quiet a bit about it in the year or so that’s passed since then. First, I’ve learned that just about any trading card game is going to be expensive to participate in. It’s amazing just how much money it takes to put…

He took time to discuss how internal testing worked, how they decide when a hero is ready…

Tricks, Treats, and Feats – The Golden Age of Halo 3 Rocket Race

I’ve talked about Halo 3 quite a bit over the years. What can I say? It’s my all-time favorite online multiplayer game. It’s over 10 years old now, but it offered its players more depth of play than any of today’s big  multiplayer titles. It had several playlists for its competitive and casual fans to…

Who Knew Mixing Puzzle Games Could Be So Much Fun?

What would you expect to get when mixing two different puzzle games together? Chaos? An exercise in sheer and utter frustration? A really good excuse to break a controller? How about one of the most surprisingly entertaining party games to come out in the last couple of years? Believe it or not, Puyo Puyo Tetris…

The holidays are almost here and you’ve decided that you want to host some of your friends at your place for the occasion. You’ve got the food figured out and are confident that everyone will be willing to talk, but what are you all actually going to do at this party? Well, you could always…
