The Weekly Warhammer Wrapup–#2

October 27, 2008

I have to admit, with the release of Fable 2 last week, Warhammer as taken a back seat this weekend. However, I did manage to get Spazter to level 27, almost capped my Empire Chapter 13 Influence, took a keep, and played quite a few scenarios this weekend. A couple things of note this week: […]

In Review…

October 27, 2008

This weekend.  Wow. I spent almost all my time last week digging into Fable II.  I wouldn’t say I’m rushing through it exactly, but I do feel an certain amount of pressure with all the other releases crashing over each other like waves at the beach.
