Epic Fantasy Dream Team do a panel together 

When I was younger I’d spend hours talking with friends about football, usually we’d discuss which players should form a team together and take on the world: Fantasy Football, I think it’s a thing now. I wanted David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Freddie Ljungberg and Frank Lampard all playing together in my midfield (sorry, I do […]

‘Lords of the Fallen’ looks pretty awesome 

We at Fantasy-Faction are pretty big fans of Dark Souls, despite having gone through about six controllers playing it (they keep accidentally hitting the wall). So, when we heard that the developers were working on a new game that looked to include more traditional fantasy elements into it (such as a relatively deep story and […]

First Strange Chemistry Author Snapped Up!

A few months back the SFF community took a huge blow when we lost the Strange Chemistry imprint. Although the label hadn’t been making the kind of revenue it needed to survive, its authors were getting attention through largely positive reader reviews and a fair share of award nominations .

Batman if Square Enix got their hands on him…

Batman if Square Enix got their hands on him… 

There was recently a lot of talk about how Ben Affleck would look as Batman. Most people thought he’d probably just about pull off the look, but weren’t too sure about how his acting would hold up. Anyway, we’re not talking movies today. Imagine, instead, if Square Enix had the money and desire to license […]

The Oathbreaker’s Shadow FINALLY gets US release date 

We at Fantasy-Faction were big fans of Amy McCulloch’s The Oathbreaker’s Shadow. In fact, we rated it as one of our top fantasy titles of 2013.
