Summoner: A Goddess Reborn – Review

Being a game critic is a little like being a soldier. Armies keep their countries safe; we play problematic games so other people don't have to. Spending 45 hours with Summoner: A Goddess Reborn won't get me the Medal of Honor—Daniel Weissenberger deserves that award, hands down. Nevertheless, I hope that I can protect others from the game's badness. Don't get me wrong—Summoner: A Goddess Reborn has some good ideas. They're simply crushed by its technical flaws and boring, boxed-in gameworld.

Okage: Shadow King – Review

Wackiness is hard work. Anybody can come up with a random quip that makes his friends laugh, but true silliness requires almost managerial skill. Humor is an art of incongruities; a good humorist must know them intimately, and fit them together like puzzle pieces or cogs in a machine. Okage: Shadow King is an offbeat game in both senses of the word. While the game can be funny and intriguing, it's often unable to keep up with its own momentum.

According to ESRB, this game contains Comic Mischief, Mild Language, Mild Animated Violence.

Fable – Second Opinion

To treat Fable as an exercise in simulated ethics or as a game with serious messages regarding issues like violence and theft is to doom the game to failure. This has been posited and then proven by Dan's review. The question, however, is whether there is any other reasonable way to approach the game.

Fable – Review

Let's say Hitler was walking down the street one evening, alive and well and a hundred and twenty or so. It just so happens that this street is in the bad part of town, so it comes to no surprise when some socially maladjusted punk comes up, stabs him to death and steals his Social Security check. Was that a moral or immoral act? Most people would agree that killing Hitler is a good thing. But the person who killed him wasn't aware of who he was, and killed him out of greed, which most people would agree is an immoral act. So was the act moral or immoral?
