Looking at the scientific papers, you can see that humanity is getting ever-closer to true bionic people. Fully-functioning robotic arms and legs are becoming more common and more lifelike all the time. Though we’re not quite to the phase where people are doing this sort of stuff voluntarily. H...

We’ve not been hearing much about Star Wars: Armada recently. It would seem that was due to a manufacturing issue that pushed the Wave II releases from 3rd quarter to 4th quarter. However, things seem to have worked themselves out and the latest sets will soon be making their way to your tablet...

Seismic activity is on the rise around the US, particularly in the midwest. So, what if that wasn’t so much man-made (as it seems to be, though I don’t really want this to turn into a political debate), as it was the harbinger of something much worse? What if, 50 years from now, there wer...

Sometimes you just gotta have something a little faster when you have that need… that need for speed! If that’s the case and you’re playing the Judge Dredd Miniatures Game, then that means you should go and get yourself a Banshee Interceptor. Nothing in their arsenal is faster. *whi...

The galaxy far, far away is a big place. There’s hundreds of races, each with billions of people (or, I guess “people”), spread across thousands of planets. Obviously, there’s going to be some variation between different individuals. So creating rules sets to let you play all ...
