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.

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

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Spartacus Legends Will Be Free To Play On LIVE And PSN

Posted on Thursday, September 6 @ 16:19:57 Eastern by sara_gunn


The world is full of strange and interesting things. Take Ubisoft, for example. First they announce they’re dumping their God-awful DRM policy. Now they’re making fighting game. A free-to-play fighting game for LIVE and PSN.
 
Honest to God, Spartacus Legends will be available for download in first quarter of 2013, free-to-play and all. Of course, I’m sure good weapons and armor won’t be free, but you can design your own gladiator from scratch and get into sweaty, manly fights with players across the world. According to Joystiq:

Combatants in Spartacus Legends can withstand a lot more punishment. The combat is more combo-focused, so you won't lose an arm with a single swipe. It's a bit less realistic, but since permadeath is in play you may be glad fighters can take more of a beating. Yes, once your gladiator dies, he's dead forever.
 
Uhg. Permadeath. Really? For someone like me, who becomes heavily invested in the characters she creates, that can be a real game killer. There’s nothing like spending weeks developing a toon and getting all emotionally invested only to have him permanently decapitated in front of a roaring crowd.
 
And you know having to start a new character means you’ll have to spend more money on items to not suck. Free-to-play, indeed.
