Review: Fable Anniversary – Xbox 360

We all have those special memories: moments in our lives that really changed our outlook. Sometimes for us gamers, it’s a particular game, and for me it was having my eyes open to Western RPGs.

I had just purchased the gigantic original Xbox and was looking for something other then Halo 2 to play. I was recommended Fable. After just a short time of playing the game I was instantly hooked. I had grown up on Dragon Warrior, but there was something about Fable that really spoke to me.

E3 Rumors and Predictions: Microsoft

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, is now a week away and rumors about new IPs, release dates, and new services have been running rampant.

In a recent turn of events, Microsoft has started making a massive push to even the playing field with Sony.

Simply put, the vast majority of gamers do not want a console for TV features, they want it for gaming. And up until now, the PS4 has been winning the console war because it is a video game console first. But, that aside, Halo 5 has also been announced. So that begs the question, what are we going to see at E3 this year? I have some thoughts, come and humor me for a minute.
