I like to consider myself a Master of Bargains. This is no proud boast, but the label given to someone who spends far too much time hunting around in bargain bins. I am Samoza, and I am a bargain addict. I love the thrill of finding a cheap game and taking it home. Many times these games have been dismissed by the critics, but at £10/$17 who can argue? With co-op in mind, I have found myself buying two copies of the same game so that I can inflict one on a friend. The likes of Tom Clancy’s HAWX and Tenchu Z have been bought in duplicate for under £20; both of these were nice co-op titles. Could my latest purchase keep up the standard for my cheapo buys? Co-Optimus warned me that Fairytale Fights had its problems – was I right to dismiss them?
I have often found that most games are better played in co-op. Even something as repetitive and dull as the wobbly flesh men in Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom, are made amusing by having a pal or three along. “What’s that?” You cry in anguish. “A wobbly fleshman,” is the obvious reply. With this in mind, any game that is playable in co-op has some merit, even if it is a backdrop for you and some friends to have a chat. As a man I refuse to speak on the telephone, but over LIVE, its just plain politeness. Therefore, for a fun co-op experience all I need is a co-op pal and a decent server.
Fairytale Fights gets its first DLC on PSN tomorrow, February 11th. The game, as you might recall, is a brutal hack-n-slash featuring all of the fairytale icons of your childhood dismembering each other in extremely bloody ways.
After our review of Fairytale Fights, you may have been as disappointed as we were with the outcome. Now however, you have the power to decide for yourself if the game is worth while, as Xbox LIVE and the Playstation Network have finally unleashed a demo for Fairytale Fights. Check out that demo, which Red Riding Hood proclaims is:
You've heard the tales, and you've been given a chance to play a twisted fighting fairy tale version of the classics. We've tried out the co-op in Fairytale Fights to ask Mirror, Mirror if this game is the fairest of them all, or deserves to be ground into bone-crunchy Giants bread.
Fairytale Fights has already been released, but that didn't stop PlayLogic from releasing a launch trailer for the four player co-op title. What's in store? Blood. Lots and lots of blood. I also thing I spy some dismemberment, some kicks to the head, some matrix style camera work, and a handful of big dead wolves.
Today is the day that Fairytale Fights hits store shelves in all it's brutal glory, and the team would like you to enjoy a bit of DLC for free for a short time. This free DLC will include 4 new playable characters, and 3 additional PvP arenas on both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 versions of the game.
When promoting a video game to young men, nothing grabs their attention like porn stars. In the short advertisement for the four player co-op Fairytale Fights, there's even something for the ladies, namely Ron Jeremy. I kid...I kid.
Playlogic just sent over the achievement and trophy list for their upcoming four player co-op game, Fairytale Fights. From what we've seen so far of it, the game is a brutal and violent take on classic children's fairytales complete with over the top humor.
Getting closer to the games release, Fairytale Fights is showing us a little teaser of the brand of humor in the game through this new theatrical style trailer. Starting off with what you'd expect to see from a Fairytale story with sweet music and mystical glimmering text on the screen, and quickly melting into the hardcore gore-fest you will actually see with the game. All four characters show off their sweet moves in this one, co-op style!
Game Name: Fairytale Fights
Co-Op Type/Multiplayer Type: Local/Online
Release Date: October 27, 2009
PlayLogic has announced the released date and features of Fairytale Fights. We've kept a watchful eye on this brutal hack and slash since it was announced, and it appears we won't be waiting much longer. The game is set for an October 27th release date on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Unfortunately PC owners are going to have to wait a bit longer as a 2010 release date for that version of the game has been announced.
I'm going to go on record right now and say that the Naked Emperor from Fairytale Fights may be the most disturbing and the most awesome character I've seen in video games in quite some time. There's something psychotic, and yet hilarious, about a naked guy running around with a sword lopping heads off colorful characters. Perhaps it's the little green leaf hiding his man parts.
It's such a peaceful day in the woods. The birds are chirping, the animals are frolicking, and Red Riding Hood is looking for her next victim to chop into little pieces. Oh and there's some creepy guy chopping the heads off bunnies.
Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived four characters who craved fame. You see, they used to be the talk of the kingdom – boys and girls around the entire world loved them, and their names were recognizable wherever one would go. Things change, new stories get told, and beloved old storytime characters get lost in the shuffle. You ever stop to think that maybe those characters don’t want to fade away? That maybe they’ll do anything to get back in the limelight of their former glory? In Playlogic and Game Factory’s Fairytale Fights, this is exactly the case – and things get bloody. Very bloody.
