New Fable XBLA Game Announced

Fable Heroes is set to be a companion to the upcoming Kinect game.

It’s been some time since we’ve heard from the Fable franchise. Little has been shown of Fable: The Journey since its debut at E3 last summer, and Lionhead Studios has yet to talk about a possible fourth entry in the action RPG series. That’s not to say that nothing new is coming out of Albion, however; we’ve learned that a new Fable spinoff is in the works.

Titled Fable Heroes, this XBLA game is a dedicated multiplayer hack ‘n slash affair. Up to four players can battle alongside each other in the mainly side-scrolling game. It seems as if the characters come from the previous three games, though Fable Heroes sports a cartoony, almost marionette look. It recalls the Flash game on the Fable 2 website that led up to the release of that game.

As players proceed through the main adventure and play the mini games, coins will be earned. These can be cashed in for loot in the game, or transferred into the upcoming Fable: The Journey. The unlocks work both ways as well, with players of The Journey earning rewards that can be used in Heroes.

As of now, no release date or price point has been announced. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

That Dragon, Cancer Review

"That Dragon, Cancer," is a game about hope -- its presence, and its absence. While forged in the anticipation of triumph, the end result is a meditation on failure and loss that is pretty hard to take, and without a doubt breaks new ground for the interactive medium. Created by Brian Green and his company, Numinous Games ("numinous" means "having a strong religious or spiritual quality"), this "game" (we have no other word for it that's adequate) is both gut-wrenching and an incredibly simple exploration of a young boy's four year battle with cancer. But while it takes on loss in a new way, it is also a commentary on games in general that is both surprising and profound. It is not without flaws, but the all-encompassing heart of it more than compensates for its failures.
