Taking the High Road

Fable As any developer of sandbox games knows, once you give some kids the power to destroy an entire virtual planet, it’s kind of hard to get them to stop. Who plays Grand Theft Auto for the plot? Who can resist saving outside a hold in Skyrim before shouting the whole town to death? How about stealing some poor guy’s life savings in Watch Dogs before crashing his car into a barrier?

Nemesis System

Nemesis System It's time of year again - the time where high-profile games begin releasing in time for the holiday shopping season. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is one of the games starting off the season, but by all accounts is not high profile. Certainly the game got media attention, but it was largely under hyped.
