With more technological tricks available than ever before, I'm waiting for someone to clear out all the effeminate amnesiac heroes and stale, overused clichés—the time is right for a boundary-busting title to shake things up and kickstart a Role-Playing renaissance. Although its formula is a little unusual... Enchanted Arms
is not that game.

When I heard about Rainbow Six Vegas
, I was justifiably skeptical. Apparently publishers have decided that console gamers can't handle real simulation and strategy, so games have to be dumbed down to reach the broadest possible audience. Fortunately Rainbow Six Vegas
is not the bust that Lockdown
was; in some ways, it really pulls the franchise back on track and introduces some decent new mechanics.

As I played through Dark Messiah Might and Magic
, I felt a little pity for the team at Arkane Studios. They clearly put some real passion into the game development. The game does a terrific job of bringing medieval-style fantasy combat to life in a very immersive, playable way.

For anyone who plays a large number of videogames, there reaches a point where every genre has not only been explored, but each slight variation on it exhausted. When attempting to deride something they don't like, people will often say a variation of the phrase 'If you've played one (for example) first-person shooter (FPS), you've played them all.' While this isn't true, the slightly paraphrased version "If you've played twenty FPSs, you've played them all" actually kinda is.
