Review Roundup

I mean, who really doesn’t love Saturdays, in general? Sure, there’s not always the best Saturdays, but overall, it’s probably the greatest day of the week. At least, in my opinion.
While we’re on the subject of opinions, it’s time to get into this week’s reviews.

Today we have: Import/Export, Dream Catchers, Gaia Project, Schrodinger’s Cats, Indulgence, Smile, and Shop ‘N Time.

Way of the Fighter Coming February 14th

Happy Valentine’s Day! *punch in the mouth* *spinning roundhouse kick* *sweep the leg*
Ok, so you’re not generally supposed to fight on Valentine’s Day, but if you’re picking up Way of the Fighter when it’s released, then it’d be a good way to spend a romantic evening (at least, I think so, and if you’re a lady who agrees, call me 😀 😉 … I think I just figured out why I’m single… Wow, this got dark. Let’s get back to talking about the game). Anyway, Way of the Fighter brings the action and excitement of old-school fighting video games right to your tabletop.

Warlord Games Seeks Digital Sculptor

Gee, seems that Warlord Games is stocking up on all sorts of help! In this case, they’re looking for a digital sculptor. Now, I need a drafting machine and a set of French curves to make a stick figure, and I think that computers are run by gnomes and sprites. So I don’t think you have to worry about me as competition for this job. But you do have to worry about all the other talented digital sculptors out there.

Friday Snippets

What a crazy week. Monday off. Tuesday in the office. Wednesday and Thursday at home because of the snow. Today’s back in the office, as I checked the hill at the entrance to my place late Thursday and it’d finally melted enough you could get out. So yeah, kinda odd schedule, but waddyagonnado? It’s winter. That kinda stuff’s gonna happen. It’s also gonna be 60 tomorrow, because this is still Georgia. Also, tomorrow, I’m gonna be doing some gaming. I hope you are, too. And if you’re going to be gaming, you’re going to want to be well-fed on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Leader Ratss-M1 Battle Tank Now Available From Ratgard, Voting Underway For Best Casual Game of 2017, and Skeleton Warriors Up On Kickstarter.

Fat Dragon Games Releases World War Tesla Starter Set

Many feel that Nikola Tesla was ahead of his time, possibly even from the future. He certainly pushed the boundaries of science for the time.

Z-Man Games Previews Tea & Trade Expansion For Fields of Arle

There are areas of the world that, despite being part of a larger country, are sort of their own, little world. Cut-off from many other people, these regions create their own traditions and ways of life. Such is the case with East Frisia. Nestled along the coast of Germany, these flax farmers sort of just did their own thing. You get to play one of these farmers in Fields of Arle, of which, the new Tea & Trade expansion is coming. It brings the option of a 3rd player, but that’s not all. What else is there? That’s what Z-Man is showing off in this preview.

Blitzfreeze Campaign for Five Men in Normandy Now Available

Midweek Snippets

It’s a cold and snowy day here over in Atlanta. A thin layer of ice is concealed under a small blanket of snow. As such, it’s “work from home” day for the bear. Atlantans tend to have rather dubious driving skills in ideal conditions. Throw in some ice and snow and it’s not so much a matter of being worried about your own car, it’s everyone else flying in every direction you’ve gotta worry about. So I’ll just sit here and snack on some bite-sized gaming stories from the comfort of my den.

On the platter today we have: Reptilian Overlords Releases Enemy Trooper Heads, Dark Art Studios January Sale Happening Now, Daughters of the Orphanage Coming From Raging Heroes, HeresyLab Bringing New Sci-Fi Minis to Kickstarter Soon, and Brigade Models Releases New 15mm Hammer’s Slammers Vehicles.

IDW Games Announces The X-Files: Everything is Connected

I think it’s safe to say that many of you reading this now also watched the X-Files back in the 90s, and quite possibly saw the newest season (while I’ve seen older episodes, I have to admit I’ve not seen the new ones). It was always great talking about the events in that show, since there was always something crazy going on, be it the overarching story, or just the monster-of-the-week. Well, IDW Games is turning that into a game with Everything is Connected, a new storytelling game where you must convince the other players of your conspiracy theories.

Well, the world’s come to an end again. Damnit, Todd! I told you not to poke at that big, red button! Now humanity’s had to form back into small Tribes in our own, isolated Villages.

New Napoleonic French Imperial Guard Head of Column Available From Warlord Games

I love a parade. I mean, I was in Marching Band for many years, and so I’ve participated in quite a few. The pomp. The pageantry. The colorful uniforms. Granted, it’s not just a parade when it’s during a campaign. Those long lines of troops aren’t just showing off. They’re headed to the battlefield. At the head of the column is usually a band and certainly drummers, letting people know that the military is on the move. Warlord Games has a new Napoleonic French Imperial Guard Head of Column set available to order, to give your Black Powder games a bit more ceremony.

Path of the Black Flag Pathfinder Supplement Up On Kickstarter

One of the series I watch on YouTube is Renegade Cut. Recently, they had a video about Anarchy as it pertains to the movie V for Vendetta. Anarchy isn’t quite what most of us think about, at least not in its traditional sense. And while I can’t say that I’m an Anarchist, it’s interesting to read about. Even if you’re not an Anarchist, either, you might want to bring some Anarchy into your RPGs. The Path of the Black Flag supplement for Pathfinder will let you do just that. It’s up on Kickstarter now.
Listening to the Sex Pistols not required while reading their pitch… but it helps.
