  1. The Bi-Weekly British Backtrack - What Is Retro?

    Now then, I’ve got a can here with something in it. I’m going to open it up and see what’s inside.

    Hmm, it’s full of worms.

    So, now I just opened a can of worms it’s time to open another one but this one is slightly different, this one is reviving an age old debate. The debate of What is retro?

    First off, we need to take back a couple of terms, we’re taking back “retro” and we’re taking back “classic.” If you think about an analogy to represent the 2 ...

  2. Fable III: Traitors Keep DLC

    Today, the new DLC for Fable 3 hit, and it was a pretty large update. Large by Fable standards mind you, is maybe 4 hours of content, if your lucky. Traitors Keep is a new quest line in the game, that kicks off with an assassination attempt from a place called The Keep, a large island prison holding the most dangerous criminals in Albion. What amazes me is that you didn't know about it. Your the frigging king of the country, nay, the entire known world as I understand it, and shit just keeps popping ...

It comes down to both having strengths and weaknesses as mediums of storytelling. I'm going to give a couple of well known examples to show you what I mean.

  4. Me and Rpgs - thoughts.

They were epic, massive immersion games that drew you in and really gave you a reason to keep playing. The random battles, and random item drops gave an element of realistic chaos to the game that inspired a sort of tension.

  5. The Bi-Weekly British Backtrack - Bruce Lee

    I’m afraid the political heavyweights will be disappointed by this blog entry.

    We’re taking a breather from the normally deep and intense discussion generating material found here and we’re doing a simple game review. That’s a simple review of a game not a review of a simple game, though I suppose that description’s probably fairly true as well. We’re going to look at what is without doubt one of the finest 8bit platformers out there. In fact if you think about it most of the greatest ...
