Fable Legends actually looks pretty fun

This trailer also best explains (though not completely clearly?) the 4 vs. 1, heroes versus villain mode, which we talked a bit about here. Though it's not traditional Fable, there is also regular single-player and co-op pla...

Diablo III's Ultimate Evil Edition makes the core game a must-play for console owners

Diablo III has had a tumultuous history to say the least. Always-online DRM, the Real-Money Auction House, and loot problems plagued the original release -- all issues that took months to address. It's a hot-button issue even...

What?! Japan gets a Gundam, Kamen Rider, Ultraman crossover RPG

World of Warcraft's tenth anniversary will include a corgi

Oh, so that's how you get me to write about World of Warcraft -- corgis. Blizzard has a number of plans for the MMO giant's tenth anniversary this November. The notable one, at least to my eyes, is a Molten Corgi pet, obtaina...

Dargon Quest IV on iOS: A typo, not a trick
