Review: Fable Fortune

Poor Fable. Leaving aside Peter Molyneux's tendency to promise way more than his teams are able to deliver, the first two games were well-received by critics and players alike. But then Fable III happened. And then Fable Hero...   read

About Bassone of us since 11:32 PM on 12.03.2015

This account is a memorial to Bass, who tragically left us at the age of 23 back in December 2017. If he left with any regrets, it's that he didn't get to see the day of Kingdom Hearts III's launch.

If he was still alive, his description would say:

"French Canadian gamer that has transcended human flesh.

Current gen systems used: PS4, Switch, 3DS, Vita, PC.

Now a real deal employed software engineer!

Oh also I backed Indivisible and Hiveswap and Bug Fables and Bloodstained."
