REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

John Needham Appointed Studio Boss At Lionhead

Posted on Tuesday, April 23 @ 11:30:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

John Needham, former CEO of Cryptic Studios and Gazillion Entertainment, has just been appointed to be the new boss at Lionhead, filling the shoes of Peter Molyneux.

For those that don't know, Cryptic Studios was behind a handful of MMOs including City of Heroes and Champions Online, and Gazillion Entertainment is currently hard at work on the upcoming Marvel Heroes MMO. As such, it goes without saying that Needham definitely has experience in working with massively multiplayer online games.

"This is a historic time in our industry and I’m excited, and honoured, to be joining Lionhead and Microsoft Studios," Needham said. "Our vision is focused on building innovative gaming services and AAA experiences at Lionhead, and the rest of Microsoft Studios, which take advantage of Microsoft’s incredible hardware and software platforms. Personally, I can’t wait to get started."

Might we see a Fable MMO from Lionhead for Microsoft's next-gen console? Hey, you never know. Would you be interested in something like that? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
