Throwback Bit Thursday: Fable II

It is no secret that I disliked the original Fable. It was much hyped-up Xbox Action- RPG that failed to deliver on many of its creator’s (Peter Molyneaux) promises.

However, the NER ranking takes many other things into consideration,… Continue reading The Top Ten Greatest Consoles of All-Time
