Yahtzee reviews Fable II

speaks for itself, really.

Here's the link if the video decides not to work.

first the birds, now the Beetle

More internet rumblings confirmed....Blue Beetle is getting canceled.

Okay, so that's two DC books that I read down, two to go (Trinity & Wonder Woman).
Apparently DC books that aren't epic space operas are left to die. HARSH.

The good news is that Jaimie will still be the current Blue Beetle. The other good news is that Barbara Gordon will be getting an Oracle miniseries after BoP's death.
Small favors I guess.

sources: newsarama & DC Comics message boards.
Read the newsarama article, there's a lot of details in there about...well, everything.

edit: it seems that Manhunter got the boot as well, right after the relaunch. Crikey.

My World, My Way trailer

Atlus just sent out an email to their faithful with a trailer for what looks to be a fun new DS game. I think they get my dollars again. It seems to be full of win.

from the email:
"Attention, please! I am sick of RPGs with gender-confused boy heroes with their spikey hair and ginormous swords living out an absurd ultimate fantasy. Is having your village burn down all you really need to be a champion? And a scar on your face is supposed to make you... What, dark and brooding? Try uncoordinated.

"In My World, My Way, I can change the landscape when it doesn't suit me, make monsters give me more money, and always take the first turn in battle. I can also make enemies go away if I don't feel like fighting, shut down their magic abilities, and even make quests solve themselves. Sure, other RPGs let you explore lands and fight monsters, but how many of them let you change the world around you?

My Favorite Rose...

My friends were discussing this via email the other day, when Cammy was finally verified to be in SFIV. Freyhon wondered if Rose was going to be added. I had hopes for Rose, but expected nothing. Well, Pushing Play was on the Shoryuken forums and found what seems to be photo evidence of Rose! I can't play her worth a darn anymore but I'd definitely put the time in to learn her fighting style again.
