Wot I Think: King Arthur II

By Tim Stone on February 8th, 2012.

When The Hivemind asked me if I had any experience of pulling swords from stones and I replied “None, but I’ve removed quite a few splinters, thorns, and bee stings from T. Stone.” everyone in the room collapsed into helpless laughter. It was the subtle kind of helpless laughter, the kind where the laughers don’t make any sounds, or show any outward signs of being amused, but I could tell my little word-play had gone down well because moments later I was being asked to provide a joke-free (they were most insistent on that point) Wot I Think on Neocore’s latest Arthurian epic.

King When You’re Winning: Fallen Champions

By Brendan Caldwell on June 20th, 2011.

I just can't wait to be King.

I was just about to get my daily ten-minute stroll in Castle Shotgun’s sewage pit – my only respite – when Master Quinns told me to post about this announcement. King Arthur: Fallen Champions follows on from Paradox Interactive’s King Arthur (which Jim was fond of) but takes place before King Arthur II (which has dragons). Here are some pretty words about this and some Irish ones, which are not pretty.

Knight Time! The King Arthur 2 E3 Trailer

By Quintin Smith on June 8th, 2011.

That scab on the belly looks like an eye, which turns the belly into a face. Do you see it?

I’ll tell you what looks good. King Arthur 2 looks good. The sequel to 2009’s fantasy “role-playing wargame” (see our review here), King Arthur 2 sounds like it’ll be that most noble of gaming sequels- taking everything that we liked about the first game, and gently tightening it up and making it that much bigger. None of this trying to appeal to a broader audience or revolutionise things. Just taking that great idea, and making it even stronger. And, in this case, adding a crapload of dragons. I’m talking about dragons blocking out the sun. You’ve got to see this.

The Paradox Convention Preview Blowout

By Quintin Smith on January 24th, 2011.

CAPITAL LETTERS ARE AMPHETAMINES FOR THE SOUL

Last week I was in New York, eating pizza and inventing all-new comparative metaphors for how cold it was (“colder than Bobby Kotick’s eyes”, “colder than a Game Gear’s battery”, “colder than a handjob from an eel”). Why? Because last week was the yearly Paradox Convention, where journalists are invited to meet a whole bag of developers and look at all of Paradox’s upcoming releases.

In short, we’ve got even more to look forward to in 2011 than we thought. I’ll be going through these at top speed, so put on your protective goggles and we’ll take a look. Do I have to remind you of the boy who once read a succinct article of mine and lost an eye? No? Good.

This Is An Art Attack: King Arthur 2 Coming

By Quintin Smith on January 14th, 2011.

Skipping rope demons are famously unbeatable by all except 8 year old girls.

I’m going to the annual Paradox Interactive convention next week, where developers will says things to me like “We’ve finally corrected the hat height of our 16th century Polish Hussars!” And I will nod like a man trying to escape from the tender embrace of a headcrab. But it won’t all be inaccessible historic strategy games! Hark: Neocore has just released a teaser trailer for King Arthur 2, which awaits your inexhaustible attention beneath the jump. Seriously, what are they feeding you?
