Sacred 2: RPG + German Fantasy Metal = Something?

[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" band that...   read

New Kingdom Under Fire to be an MMO

Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom was barely out the door before developer Blueside talked of a sequel, and it's hardly surprising -- by all accounts, Circle of Doom was a complete failure, so who can blame Blueside for reminding us that t...   read

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

As far as I'm concerned, it's hard to go wrong with a Golden Axe remake. Just give me a dwarf and a shedload of skeletons to fight and I'm happy. Of course, this is the games industry, and nobody ever does the right thing when it comes to r...   read

Kingdom Under Fire gets release date

Kind of like Dynasty Warriors, but with considerable RPG influences and four-player online co-op, it's safe to say that the latest in the Kingdom of Fire series, Circle of Doom, is pretty high up on my shopping list. The game finally has a ...   read

Ninjatown DS trailer somehow makes cute ninjas okay

It is a universal fact that ninjas should not be cute. It really kills the credibility of being a ruthless killing machine if women are cooing over you. However, figure in a DS title populated by Shawnimals, and somehow the whole concept be...   read
