Well, it’s just rainy all over everywhere. Probably shouldn’t be out driving around too much if you can avoid it. Might not be a bad idea to stay inside and do some reading. Oh, hey, look at that. Ironwatch Issue 41 is now available. You can read that....

What’s the best weapon that you can create? Do you think your mace of goo can beat someone’s souped-up bow of backfire? What about a hedgehog launcher? Well, now you can find out in LootCrafter, a new card game where you build your own weapon and then see if it can defeat your opponent...

Corvus Belli isn’t the only company celebrating a momentous anniversary year for their game. How many of you knew that the Pokemon Card Game has been around for 20 years? Yeah, as surprised as I was to hear that Infinity had been around for a decade, I was just as surprised to think that Pokemo...

It’s amazing how fast time goes by. Sometimes you think, “oh hey, I thought that game just came out” when you realize it’s been around for a decade already. Not to say that I constantly think that Infinity just came out, but I’d not realized that it’d been a decade...

Those pesky undead. They seem to show up at the most inopportune times. And not all are created equal. While most of us gamers might look at a skeleton, even one in some armor, and go, “Meh, it’s just a skeleton.” That’d be a very dangerous thing to do when it comes to Ardus I...

I do not believe that we are alone in the galaxy (and certainly not in the universe). However, I don’t think that little, green men are buzzing us, picking up people out in the country, and “probing” them. I do wish, though, that a flying saucer would land itself right in the middle...

So it’s something like 70 degrees outside. So, not really Hoth-like (or really all that Christmas-like), but we can still imagine it’s cold. Granted, it doesn’t actually have to be cold in order to play the Return to Hoth expansion for Imperial Assault. But any way you feel like pla...
