Sep 25
// Jim Sterling
[video]105137:427[/video] This trailer for Sacred 2 is the most amazingly epic thing I've seen all day, and also the most tragic. It's not every day that you get to see an in-game music video for a German "Fantasy Metal&...

New Golden Axe = Lair? Lack of playable dwarf = FAIL, at any rate


Nov 27
// Jim Sterling
