Excerpt: The world has fallen into chaos and two factions battle over the last resources available. In Hybrid, the entire world is open to do battle in, divided into continents and districts to dominate. As you push back your enemies and claim districts, your faction earns rewards and of course, bragging rights. Once you select a faction, you’re locked in for a season, though you’re allowed to switch one time per season.
Excerpt: Hybrid is the fourth title in Xbox LIVE Arcade's Summer of Arcade promotion, and while it many be the game that accumulates the least buzz out of all the great titles offered in the promotion, it is a game that definitely shouldn't be overlooked. You see, Hybrid is a third-person shooter set in a futuristic world on the brink of total destruction.
Excerpt: This is yet another game that you may have missed back in the day but is now SO cheap that you can't afford not to pick it up. Fable 2 is an action RPG with quite enjoyable combat and a branching skill tree where you can focus on magic, melee fighting, or guns/crossbows.

Excerpt: Fable II is all about the decisions you make, and takes that premise a few steps further than the original Fable. Although your moral options are still of the a)good or b)bad variety, Lionhead has managed to create greater degrees of subtlety. Do you sacrifice XP for the greater good or do you go along with things just to see what happens? Sometimes you regret a decision and sometimes you just shrug your shoulders and move on.
Excerpt: How much do we have to pay Peter Molyneux to keep his mouth shut? One word comes to my mind when I play the game Fable II. Well two words; awesomely disappointing. How does that make sense? Well read the review to find out!
