Of Orcs and Men  



Of Orcs and Men is role reversal at its finest


11:00 PM on 12.06.2011



Of Orcs and Men is a curious title with a pretty epic trailer. It appears to be a take on Of Mice and Men, as it's about two guys on the run.  Those two guys happen to be an orc and a goblin, however.  They also happen to kick a lot of human ass. Check this out, though. They're the heroes of the story, fighting for the freedom of their respective races. It's a neat twist.

The trailer is thoroughly action packed, with lots of medival weaponry and asskicking. Maurice previewed this game with high hopes, and the trailer shows quite a bit of promise.  Of Orcs and Men is slated to release some time in 2012 on the PS3, 360 and PC.

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
