The phrase “Trial and Error” is often used to criticise a game, but on a very basic level, isn’t that what video games are all about?
In this video, I’m going to look at the different ways Trial and Error can be used in games, the respective impact they can have and why it is shouldn’t be “removed”.
It looks as though Microsoft and Lionhead Studios will be celebrating the launch of the upcoming Fable Anniversary game on the 7th February by coinciding a trilogy bundle over Xbox LIVE. This bundle includes full Xbox 360 titles for Fable Anniversary, Fable II and Fable III. The bundle pack offers these games together at a discounted rate over individual purchases.
The games in this bundle are available as individual downloads in the Xbox Games marketplace and are exactly the same. Be aware that it is possible to download the same game twice. If you already own one of these games there is no additional discount on this bundle, nor do you receive an additional copy of the game you already own.
Thanks to OXM, I was able to purchase the full game of FABLE III for FREE as it is currently sitting on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace available for anyone with an Xbox LIVE Gold Subscription. We do not know why this is in place, but it could be part of a yet to be announced E3 promotion.
Clicking through to purchase the game via Xbox.com, gold subscribers can download the game for free by clicking the option to pay using Microsoft points, at which point it will be discounted.
We’re not complaining and the 5.61GB download is currently in progress – do make sure you click to buy with the Microsoft Points option to ensure no payment is taken from card or paypal payment setup.
