If you want to fight back the denizens of Hell and secure safety for not only Mars, but everyone in the entire universe, you’re gonna need a plan. Granted, a group of generals back at base writing down a list of objectives, and a small squad of marines going out and battling against demons in [...

Not every ship in your armada is going to be the “big guns, blow apart the enemy” sort of ship. There are going to be those ships that simply make all your other ships more “big guns, blow apart the enemy.” That’s what you get with the Phoenix Home. You’re not goin...

We’ve all embellished a story. Maybe you didn’t go 5 days without sleep, but only 2. Maybe you didn’t have a girlfriend that lives in Canada. Maybe you didn’t actually defeat 20 ninjas in combat, but only emptied out the cat’s litter box. But if you’re good at comi...

I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford to just go out and buy every game that comes out onto the market. Even games that fit a particular interest grouping of mine, there’s just so many, and I only have so much storage space and gaming time, I like to know what I’m getting...

There’s a lot of ships in the Star Wars universe with movable parts. X-Wings and B-Wings first come to mind, but there are many others. Until now, all the figures for the X-Wing Miniatures Game didn’t have movable parts. Well, with the release of the U-Wing (I’m going to name mine P...

Pretty much every new Star Wars soucebook that comes out, there’s a new playable species that you can use for characters or npcs (depending on which side of the GM screen you’re on). The upcoming book, No Disintegrations, is no different. You’ll be able to play as a Devaronian, a Cl...

The Quadjumper is basically a space tugboat. It’s not pretty. It’s not fast. But that lack of speed actually makes it one of the most maneuverable ships in X-Wing. Sure, we’ve seen a ship that can stop. But the Quadjumper can do one better. It can go in reverse. Too bad there’...

You know, when you’re an Ancient One, I guess you’ve got a lot of time on your… err… tentacles… claws… whatevers. As such, I guess it seems only natural that you’d mess with Earth and the inhabitants of it. However, most Earthlings don’t really like the...

We’ve been getting Star Wars: Destiny previews for a while now. We’ve seen what the different colors of cards mean, and a bit about the dice a long time ago. But we’ve never really gotten it all put together as to how the game actually works. If you’ve been astute and really r...

You know, I’m not really sure that a dewback really looks like all that great a way to get around a desert area. They aren’t all that fast. They don’t look that comfortable to ride (you think you get bow-legged riding a horse). And I bet they eat a lot. But, hey, who am I […]...

While the sides in Star Wars are generally broken up rather simply to Light and Dark sides of the force, like everything in life, it’s not really that simple. There’s the 3rd “faction” to deal with. They’re the smugglers, the bounty hunters, the thieves, and many others ...

On Mars, a portal to Hell has been opened. Through it pour horrible monstrosities looking to conquer this new dimension. Stalwart Space Marines are doing their best to hold back the tide, but it’s not going to be easy. All manner of terrible beasts are pouring out. And you get to be in control ...

Blue cards *hears horses whinny off in the distance* … aren’t the “Good guys” as one might initially think in Star Wars Destiny. It’s not that red cards represent the dark side of the force while blue means light (which would be an easy assumption to make. Just look at l...

King Robert Baratheon is dead (no doubt killed by an inadequately stretched breast plate). And, to be honest, nobody really wants Joffre on the throne, honestly. At least, people are seeing the lack of strong king on the Iron Throne as an opportunity to put their own butt there. Such is the set-up fo...

On a planet controlled by the Empire, many civil matters go by not taken care of. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, everyone involved just gets hauled in to jail. Or there’s the crime-run worlds. What sort of justice can one honestly expect there? Well, there are those that feel the call to...

That title might not sound all that thrilling. “Oooh, a shuttle. What fun… not!” Because, let’s face it, very few people come to the Star Wars universe to look at the shuttles. They’re not as glitzy or glamorous as the starfighters. But they certainly do still have their...
