A battle begins in Fantasy Strike

If you’ve ever wanted to get into fighting games but just couldn’t master the complex systems, Fantasy Strike from Sirlin Games might be just what you’re looking for. According to founder David Sirlin, who has experience working on the Street Fighter series, this in-development fighter is intended to be welcoming to newcomers and challenging for veterans all at the same time.

Sirlin recently had a chat with Gamespot about all things Fantasy Strike. Before starting his studio, Sirlin actually worked on a couple of Street Fighter games, including Street Fighter HD Remix.

Fable Fortune’s Release Has Been Delayed

An assassin takes the field in Fable Fortune

We’ve learned this weekend that Fable Fortune, the upcoming digital collectible card game set in the Fable universe, has been delayed. Originally expected to arrive this Tuesday, July 11, duelists will have to wait just a little bit longer to finally get their hands on the game. The new launch date has only been pushed back a couple of weeks, now arriving on July 25.

When games get delayed, there’s usually enough extra time tacked on to elicit a loud, unanimous groan from the fans who were eagerly anticipating its arrival. With Fable Fortune, we figure folks will be able to handle a couple of extra weeks without breaking a sweat. Plus, it turns out the delay wasn’t in order to squash bugs or because the test servers were crashing or anything like that. According to a recent report from IGN, the delay is being pinned on “an administration hiccup,” which we figure means Gary in Accounting accidentally shredded an important document rather than faxing it. Thanks, Gary!
