The previous announcement about the upcoming Fallout minis game was pretty bare-bones, just like a skeleton that you find out in the wastes. But it’s getting a bit fleshed out, with some more info about the game as well as some new renders of a couple of the figures....

How many of you would love to travel through time? Maybe you just want to see how things end up in the future, or check out some major event of the past, or maybe you’ve just got a history test coming up and flashcards just aren’t doing it for you. Whatever the reason, being a […]...

Modiphius has started taking pre-orders for their new sci-fi RPG, Cold and Dark. This isn’t your bright and shiny sci-fi, but more your dark and scary sci-fi, with murderous aliens around every corner. Also, this isn’t your standard pre-order, but more crowdfunding-like. The more pre-orde...

When Shadows of Brimstone first came out, it was all about the Weird West where you’d head down into a mine in search of the monsters that’d been coming out. It’s since branched out, with those tunnels leading to strange and fantastic worlds. The next tunnel you go down doesn’...

In the future, humanity has spread out among the stars. Various planets and systems have all gotten new colonies. Then, all communication with the home planet, Earth, was lost. Nobody was quite sure why, but any expedition sent to figure out what happened has never come back or been heard from again....

I’ve posted many times that I love when a Kickstarter funds, then goes on sale to the general public. Now, most games that do that are months after the projected release date. Well, Legendary Games is doing something not a lot of Kickstarters can claim: releasing 2 months early. So if you want ...

I get the appeal of digital forms for a game book. I really do. Heck, I’m often looking at them every day here on my computer. However, I will always still love to have a hard copy of a book to look through. Just something about actually turning the pages and the feel of it. […]...

The Light Side of the Force has plenty of powerful allies. The Jedi looked to keep peace and order across the galaxy. The Emperor almost wiped them out, but he missed a couple. You can’t keep a good Jedi down too long, apparently. And you’ll be able to bulk up your Star Wars: Destiny deck...

You’d think that both being rather mechanical in nature, the Cybermen and the Daleks would get along. Though, (thankfully for most of the rest of the universe) such is not the case. They clash with one-another just like they clash with other races. And that’s just what they’ll be do...

Odd coincidence that within just a couple of days, we’ve had two stories that involve rap/hip-hop. *puts Danger Doom back on the radio* In this case, it’s Axon Punk: Overdrive. It’s a hip-hop/cyberpunk game where players must work together in order to defeat the oppressive corporati...
