An Irish developer has launched an episodic role-playing game for PC to bring the stories of ancient Irish folklore to the gaming world known as Fadó.

Developer and game creator Fionn Keeley has launched the Irish mythology-infused game Fadó through Steam. The game is a retro-inspired RPG featuring lively turn-based combat. Most old Irish stories start with “fadó, fadó” — “long long ago”, and as Fionn Keeley listened to tales collected from local storytellers, he knew he had to bring them to a gaming audience.

The legends who’s stories are told once more

Featuring the magic of Cú Chulainn, St. Brigid, St. Patrick and Fionn Mac Cumhaill, this…

It’s not even been six months since I finished The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II. In fact, if you check out my review you’ll see I had it done back in June of this year. So when I had the opportunity to continue the adventure with Rean Schwarzer in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III how could I say no?

A reunion unlike any other

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III picks up a year and a half after the explosive climax of Trails of Cold Steel II. …


In 2013 Kill la Kill the anime opened to audiences and it was adored. It was called “uniquely fun, even gripping” series “a reminder of how fun and creative anime can be at its best”, despite the readily apparent budget constraints. I tried to watch it but could never get into it. This was mainly due to the awkwardness I felt when the characters “transformed” into their “armour”. Now 6 years later Studio Trigger with Arc System Works Co. have joined forces to bring a continuation of the story to PC and consoles with KILL la KIL-IF.

When I first…

Another interview in from my day out at Comic-Con Ireland. This time it’s all about the legend himself Troy Baker. Actor extraordinaire, musician, father and one half of Retro Replay it was as always a pleasure to interview Troy about his exploits across gaming as both an actor and now as a gamer in the public eye.

So I’m here with the infamous…


Well, you were in one of them.

Ha! Pun.

I should say who you are, it’s Troy Baker. I thought it be funny to do a quickfire round first as you’re a part of such secretive…

Back in May, I discovered a game and a world of character that I fell in love with. This game was The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. Now a mere month later I have returned to fight the good fight in its sequel The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II.

Trails of cold spoilers

If you haven’t played the first Trails of Cold Steel then I recommend you avoid this section as I bring you up to speed with our plucky protagonist Rean Schwarzer. …

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is a JRPG from Nihon Falcom and Marvelous Europe. The game follows a class of individuals set in a world of class divisions, war, and magic. Filled with political intrigue, lore as deep as an ocean and that most dangerous element of all, teen angst I can safely say I was not ready for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel.

A Trail of Treats

Do you know what is the greatest treat for anyone? It’s to go into something with no expectations and be blown away. …

It’s been out a little while now and the word on the street is that it’s a fatality. Mortal Kombat 11 the latest in the long-running franchise and it seems to be going from strength to strength. This is down to how well the studio behind it has been doing in the last couple of years. NetherRealm Studios has been on fire with their recent IP’s.

In the beginning

Looking back now this all feels like an experiment. First, there was Mortal Kombat and they built their universe and their timeline and then slowly but surely they built an actual storyline that dealt…
