The Free-y of the Fury

By Kieron Gillen on December 23rd, 2007.

Now we don’t normally link to games we haven’t had a chance to play yet, but this screenshot caught my eye from Fury and found its way into a quick festive post.

Sexy vomit

You see, it’s particularly seasonal, because it’s suitably snowy and prominently features a bloke apparently projectile vomiting bile green stuff. And if that doesn’t get a link on RPS, I don’t know what does. Anyway – the news being that Fury, an online action-paced RPG thing, has added a free-to-play option (“Chosen”) which allows you to get a taste for the game for no Earth pounds. If you don’t get horrified by the grammatical apocalypse of “Free 2 Download + Free 2 Play = Free 4 Ever!”, you can get it from here, and then get stuck into feeling aggrieved you have no Voice-chat and a limited friends list.

Review: Guild Wars: Eye of the North.

By Kieron Gillen on September 29th, 2007.

My, what a lot of colons. Wouldn’t it be nice to see a game mix up its punctuation a little, a throw in a semi-colon even an interrobang? I digress. PC Gamer have lobbed my review of the first real Guild Wars add-on pack online. In it, I say things like…

Even a couple of years after launch, Guild Wars remains unique in the pantheon of online RPGs. No monthly fees. No perpetual level grind. No integrated PvP. No races. No open communal adventure areas. No jump button.

And then go on to mock my own usual rants about Guild Wars, which I’ve done far too many times and won’t bore you with for now. Go read.
