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...

In the world of Android, any small gap in your computer security is going to be immediately exploited by anyone and everyone. Well, Titan Transnational Bank’s software created such an opportunity. So now it’s a race against time as hackers rush in to grab whatever they can before 1) someo...

Well, we’ve seen what the TIE Bomber upgrades look like in the upcoming Imperial Veterans box for X-Wing. This time around it’s shining a light on the upgrades for the TIE Defender. The first thing you’ll notice is the dashing new paint job. Rather stunning in its red coloring....

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...

In case you hadn’t noticed… It’s Saturday! Woo! Considering time differences and all, I hope a lot of you had a good time at Salute today. Did any of you pick up some awesome stuff while there? I, obviously, couldn’t go (much as I wanted to). I did, however, pick up my limited...

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...

Well, the world has once more come to an end. Damnit, Carl! I told you not to let that ancient evil into the house all those years ago! Just look at the mess it’s caused! Much of the world has completely changed. New monsters have taken the place of old. Once-tended forests have grown into [&he...

Most of us have a limited budget for what we can spend on gaming items. As much as I’d love to have about 10x the gaming library that I do, it’s simply not feasible. As such, I have to be rather choosy with my games. What can really help that out is when companies post […]...

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...

The world of Talisman just isn’t the same anymore. The Cataclysm really did quite a number on the place. Most of the world got altered in some form, to varying degrees. Certain locations are still pretty much the same. Others you’d not recognize at all. Some you can change and work to mak...

The gas giant planet of Bespin is a major source of tabana gas. This gas is used in blasters, so you can see how it would be vital for any military to have a good and steady supply of it. As such, the galactic civil war certainly hasn’t left the planet alone, as both Rebels […]...

Most of the smaller expansion packs for Imperial Assault have been there to use as “upgrades” for tokens that come in the larger sets. Well, this time around that’s not the case. The Alliance Smuggler and Bantha Rider are all-new to the game. So you’ve got the chance to change...

I love NetRunner. Way back in the day, it was the 2nd card game I’d ever played (the first being Magic: The Gathering). I love the asymmetrical gameplay. I loved the bluffing. I loved everything about it. Unfortunately, it was rather short-lived. However, it got a new lease on life when Fantasy...

You’ve got to have strong individuals to be in charge and take the lead if you want your group to succeed. This certainly holds true for a group such as the Rebellion. They were outnumbered and outgunned greatly by the Imperial forces. Without strong and competent leaders, the Emperor wouldR...
