GameBanshees rpg games of 2008

Posted in news  on February 3rd, 2009 by: ian

GameBanshee have their game of the year list up for 2008 rpg games.  It’s broken into categories, including ‘Best Story/Writing’, ‘Best Graphics’, ‘Best Sound/Music’, ‘Most Anticipated of 2009′, ‘Independant RPG of the Year’, ‘RPG Hybrid of the Year’ and ‘RPG of the Year’.  Each category has a winner and a runner-up.  This list seems to be a veritable who’s who of games that I haven’t managed to play yet, including ‘Fable 2′ in several spots – which I’m now not going to get to play, thanks Lionhead!

The game of the year is hardly surprising (‘Fallout 3′ in case you couldn’t guess) but there is also a string showing by indie RPGs, with both ‘Mount and Blade’ and ‘Kings Bounty’ getting awards.  Most anticipated of 2009 is ‘Diablo 3′, though, as they state, ‘To be honest, we don’t really expect Blizzard’s action RPG sequel to make it on store shelves in 2009′.  So my most anticipated RPG is going to be ‘Dragon Age’.

If you want to see yet another list of the rpg games of 2008 then check out the article – it’s slant is especially good if you’re interested in indie games.

Fable 2 is not coming to the pc

Posted in news  on January 28th, 2009 by: ian

Well, this is certainly a disappointment.  According to cinemablend, Fable 2 will not be getting ported to the PC at all (or, according to Lionhead, ‘We’re not working on a PC version of Fable II…If this changes we’ll make sure you know about it on our website’).

It’s certainly annoying as I was looking forward to playing Fable 2, however, at least there are plenty of other rpgs that should be coming out this year for me to look forward to.

Is Fable II coming to the PC?

Posted in pc rpg games  on December 10th, 2008 by: ian

Recently there has been a lot of news that Fable II might be coming out for the PC.  According to that ever-reliable source of information, the internet rumour, a release date has been set for the 15th February 2009 for Lionhead’s most recent rpg.  Personally I hope this is true – while the previous Fable isn’t the kind of rpg I would normally play I did enjoy it for the rpg-lite that it is – it was a lot of fun and if the sequel carries on in this vein (which the reviews seem to indicate that it does), then it should be a lot of fun.

So what are your thoughts?  Will you be looking forward to Fable II?  Which games are you looking forward to?
