E3 2013: Lords of the Fallen Impressions

Walking into the private meeting room to see City Interactive and Deck 13’s upcoming hardcore fantasy RPG Lords of the Fallen, I will be the first to admit that I was not expecting a whole lot. Here is a company that has cut its teeth on releasing a lot of budget-friendly titles like ‘Code of Honor’, ‘Terrorist Takedown’, and ‘Venetica’. I had heard a lot about the developer and had played some of their games in the past, so when I had heard the news that they were set to putting a lot of effort into their next venture, you can bet that I had kept my expectations in check walking into that small space on the third floor of the convention center. The good news is, I walked out a true believer in what these guys are trying to accomplish. Continue reading

As I mentioned in my previous article, there are many games that I would not have been able to cover due to the fact that it would, 1) make the article way too long for consumption, 2) make me completely burn out by attempting at providing both the synopsis and words about each and every single game.

Regardless, I would like to make up for that by providing (most of) the rest of what is on offering for 2013.

If you are interested in any of these games below, chances are we will be covering them in the coming months! Continue reading
