With Fable Legends canceled, Lionhead Studios may close its doors

If you've been eagerly awaiting the release of the free-to-play Fable game, Fable Legends, then today isn't your lucky day. The game was originally slated to be released in the last quarter of 2015, but was delayed. According to the latest timetable, the open beta was due out sometime this Spring. And as of today, it has been canceled altogether. And that's just the beginning of the bad news from Microsoft.

No Man’s Sky will make you learn new alien languages

If you've ever dreamed of exploring the vast openness of space, you're probably sad that we've yet to even send our first person to a neighboring planet. Thankfully, there are other ways of exploring new worlds, even if they're not real. Starting this summer, No Man's Sky will let you explore more planets than any other game that's out there, and you'll need to learn a few alien languages if you're going to get far.

Xbox’s Phil Spencer assuages fears of console, PC merger

Xbox’s Phil Spencer assuages fears of console, PC merger

Microsoft's announcement of Quantum Break's PC availability, and the eventual pull out of the game from the Windows Store, has been something of a mess. While it is great news (though not completely) for PC gamers, those on the Xbox side of the fence have started murmuring and questioning. Is Microsoft's stronger PC gaming push and its equally strong Windows 10 push on the Xbox a sign of troubling times for the console? Is Microsoft unifying the console and the PC? Phil Spencer says "no", though a bit ambiguously.

Far Cry 4’s map was reused in Primal, and Ubisoft should have embraced it

Far Cry 4’s map was reused in Primal, and Ubisoft should have embraced it

Back in 2013, Ubisoft made an interesting move with the Far Cry series. Far Cry 3 did incredibly well, and the team decided that they'd have some fun and make a stand-alone expansion for the game that took a completely different turn that we were used to. The result was a retro-futuristic game starring a cyborg named Rex "Power" Colt named Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Eagerly awaited No Man’s Sky finally gets PS4, PC release date

Eagerly awaited No Man’s Sky finally gets PS4, PC release date

Gamers keeping track of low-key/indie titles are likely to have known about No Man's Sky for some time. First revealed in late 2013 by developer Hello Games, it's quite simply the most ambitious game we've seen in a very long time. Players are basically dropped into an open-world space exploration game that's procedurally-generated, meaning no two planets will ever be the same, and there's almost no limited to how many worlds there are. Well, actually there is: over 18 quintillion, to be exact.

Steam may discount bundles, based on the games you already own

Steam may discount bundles, based on the games you already own

Bundles are a great way to save money when you're buying games. Sometimes you'll find a deal that will put three our four games together for the price of one. But what about those times when you already own the game? If you're buying from Steam, this means that you won't get a spare key for the game you already own. Instead, you just miss out on that part of the deal. But that may be changing soon.

Microsoft is pushing to bring more Xbox exclusive game to Windows. While that initially seemed like a good thing, there are a host of good reasons why you don't want to go out and buy the latest title on the Windows Store.

Rock Band 4 is coming to the PC, if they can get the funds

Rock Band 4 is coming to the PC, if they can get the funds

My love affair with Rock Band has been well-documented here at SlashGear, since I first heard about the game back in 2007. I drove about 6 hours just to play the game for the first time, when Harmonix took the game on tour. Well, nearly a decade has passed since those days, and the team behind the game are working on something they've been wanting to do since the very first Rock Band came out.

Print your own Firewatch map, just like the good old days

Print your own Firewatch map, just like the good old days

Remember the old days of gaming, when you actually got an instruction manual with your purchase? Sometimes, games with particularly large open worlds would come with their own physical map. You'd unfold it, and try to get all of the creases out before hanging it on your bedroom wall where you could reference it. Well, one developer wanted to give fans that same experience, despite offering the game digitally.
