Descent had quite a lot of expansions come out for it before it changed to the 2nd edition. Making sure that people get to play with all those cool figures if they like the new edition has been a priority for Fantasy Flight Games. Having said that, I’m letting you know that they’ve releas...

It’s two, two, two previews in one! Fantasy Flight gives us a look at a pair of Villain Packs for Imperial Assault with a preview of both Bossk and the ISB Infiltrators. These figure sets couldn’t be much more different from one-another. On one hand, you’ve got a set of spies. On th...

It’s another Saturday. Through an odd turn of events, I’m in the office. So Monday and Tuesday I was home because I was sick. Now it’s Saturday and I’m in the office because my internet is broken at home (overnight storm fried my modem). But all is well. Things are getting don...

The Star Wars universe is full of many unique ships. So there’s plenty to choose from when deciding on the next wave to come out for Star Wars: Armada. These two might not be directly talked about in the movies, but anyone who’s familiar with the Extended Universe knows about the Imperial...

Gee. Another day, another Imperial Assault preview from Fantasy Flight Games. That’s not a complaint, mind you. It just goes to show how much cool stuff they have planned for the game. This time around it’s Agent Blaise, Imperial scout and master interrogator. If you need someone to get i...

It would seem as though The Bespin Gambit isn’t the only thing on the minds of Fantasy Flight Games when it comes to Imperial Assault. Today they’re showing off a trio of new expansion packs, two of which bring rather iconic characters to your gaming table. They’re the Obi-Wan Kenob...

I’ve always been a fan of a nice walk through the fog. As a morning person, this gets to happen on several occasions. However, if that fog is filled with undead, it’s not always such a good thing to be walking around in. However, walking around in it is just what your heroes in Descent [&...

While both side of the Galactic Civil War were happy to hire people to help the cause (hey, that’s how Han Solo got started in things), it’s mostly associated with the Empire. Well, The Bespin Gambit expansion for Imperial Assault has several Mercenary figures available in it. So no matte...

The Star Wars universe is a rather violent place. I mean, it’s Star Wars, not Star Gardening Club. As such, the characters you play in the RPG are probably going to be getting into battles on a regular basis. You’re going to need every advantage possible to make it out of the galactic civ...

Much like the Assault Carriers also coming out in this new wave of ships for Star Wars: Armada, no enemy admiral is going to exclaim in terror the worry of a broadsides attack from a Medium Transport. But that doesn’t mean they’re not worth bringing to the battle. What they lack in pure, ...

With Star Ware you just about have to have Bespin. If you have Bespin you just have to have Lando. Well, Imperial Assault is headed to Bespin. So that means Imperial Assault is going to have a Lando. That’s what we get a preview of today (they couldn’t put all the Star Wars stuff back [&h...

The characters of the Star Wars universe are what drive the action forward. Sure, there’s millions in the Rebel Alliance, for example, but it’s the heroes like Luke, Han, and Leia that we focus on. Such is also the case in Imperial Assault. The new Bespin Gambit expansion also brings in n...

TIE Fighters, as Obi-Wann reminded us, are short-range fighters. Only a couple models come with hyperdrives. So to get from system to system, or even quickly within the same system, they need to hitch a lift. One such craft they can join up with is the Imperial Assault Carrier. We’ve got them f...

I love cyberpunk. Neuromancer and Snow Crash are two of my favorite books. Bladerunner is a favorite movie (even if they don’t really go into the ‘net in the movie, the overall ambiance is very cyberpunk). I even love Lawnmower Man. As such, when NetRunner originally came out, I dove in h...

TIE fighters aren’t known for their durability. Even those with a bit more armor and some shields aren’t as rugged as an X-Wing or Y-Wing. So the chances of making it through enough battles to make it to “veteran” status are fairly low. However, those that do make it there usu...

Arkham Horror already is great at making you go insane (inside the game, that is. It, hopefully, doesn’t make you go insane outside of the game. I mean, it’s a good game. I wouldn’t expect playing it to actually cause you to lose sanity). With the new Grave Consequences expansion, t...

For all that “can see through the Force” thing that the Jedi had going on, it didn’t ever really serve them that great. As such, they got rather punked and were basically wiped out. However, that doesn’t mean that the Force was gone from the galaxy. Far from it. There were pla...
