Steamforged Games has started taking pre-orders for Ni No Kuni 2: The Board Game. Players must work together, gathering resources, building a kingdom, and winning over the people if they want to create Evermore from the ruins of Ding Dong Dell.
Lots of Guild Ball news coming from NOVA Open over the weekend. Steamforged was there and they had a lot to talk about. There's some new resin teams for the classic Guilds, as well as the announcement of some new Captains as well as a new Minor Guild, the Shepherd's Guild. Have a look for yourself.
And we're at the end. The last of the new Rookies is up for preview over on the Steamforged Games site. So, if you're wanting to know what your newest Guild Ball player can do before you buy them, now's your time to do just that. Let's head over to the Mason's Guild and check out Champ.
Another day, another Rookie preview. This time around, it's Nomad for the Engineer's Guild. What does the new steampunk player look like? Well, let's take ourselves a look.
*amazing bass riffs*
Wait, wrong Flea. This one isn't a musician/actor, they're a Guild Ball player, and we get a look at him in this preview. If you're looking to add to your Brewer's Guild team (they have sort of gone through a fluff-culling lately), you might want to check him out.
While you can go get your pre-order on for the latest set of rookies for Guild Ball, not all of their stats have been released yet. So, if, for example, you're wanting to know how Kami works, up until reading below, you'd have to order her blind. But we're not into that kind of thing here at TGN. So, let's get you a bit of a preview.
A rookie can add new life to a team. That's what all the Guilds in Guild Ball are hoping to achieve with the Free Cities Draft that happened. The first of those rookies are available, but the second wave is not far behind. If you're looking to pick up Kami, Nomad, Chap, or Flea (bass not included), you can get your name on the list to get them now.
They warned us that it was coming. Well, here it is. Steamforged's Guild Ball had been rocking along with Season 4 for a bit, but things weren't quite the way everyone wanted. So, the crew went back to the drawing board and has updated not just some players, but also some general rules to make everything work out much better. Check it out.
The first 5 of the Free Cities Draft players have been previewed. Now you can go and order them over in the Steamforged Webshop. Been itching to add to your teams? (I know I have) Now's your chance.
Another day, another preview of the rookies that will soon be making their way to Guild Ball pitches. This time around, we take a look at Gaffer, who is headed to the Mortician's Guild, and he looks like he's going to be taking up the spot left by Ghast after he exited, stage left, pursued by bear.
Time for another preview of the upcoming rookies for Guild Ball. Each team is getting themselves a new player, and for the Hunter's Guild, that's The Edge... *reads notes* Wait, sorry, they are apparently not getting the guitarist from U2. This guy is just Edge. Sorry for the mix-up. Anyway, let's see what she brings to the table.
The Guild Ball teams are getting new rookies. After the draft that was held a while ago, Steamforged has been working on creating the stats for the new figures for their new teams. In this preview, we get a look at Layne, the new rookie for the Butcher's Guild. What new talents will he be bringing to the pitch?
Wednesday already? That's not a complaint, mind you. Always happy when a week goes by quickly. It usually means I've been busy. It also means it's closer to the weekend. So, to keep up my energy with all these things to do and to make sure I make it to the weekend, let's snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Shotguns Available From Puppets War, Limited Edition Mutt & Bailey Available To Pre-Order From Steamforged, and Flames Of War - D-Day American: Assault Company & Airborne Gaming Aids.
Steamforged is looking to move their team production for Guild Ball from the metal teams they used to have to resin teams for the classic Guilds. The Fisherman's Guild will be the next one coming out. They'll be light blue. Steamforged has posted up a preview of what they'll look like (you might remember them from their failed Indiegogo campaign from several months back).
When a Kickstarter only lasts a week, there's a chance that you might miss out on it (heck, if it runs for a month, you still might miss out on it). But never fear! Steamforged has started taking late pledges for Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace. You can still get all the extras and exclusives if you hurry.
It's Friiiiiiiiidaaaaaaaaaaay! Woo! Just a couple hours and it'll be the weekend. I'm pumped (if you couldn't tell). I'm all set for some D&D tomorrow. But before that, I need to get some more energy via some snack-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Astro Witch Added To Free Mini Offer From Victoria Miniatures, Veteran Tech Troopers Available Now From Puppets War, .
Been quite a long week. Lots of stuff to work on. Midweek doctor's visit. I am certainly ready for a couple days off. Not entirely sure what the weekend will hold. I might go back and revisit the "Chinese Food and Kung-Fu Movies" plan that I actually missed from a couple weeks ago. We shall see. But what I won't miss is some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Round Base Bundle Deals From Tabletop-Art, New Orc Flying Coffin Available From Puppets War, Limited Edition Kern Miniature Available to Pre-Order From Steamforged, and RPG Character Class Dice Sets Up On Kickstarter.
The Devil got some dust in his face. He just may cry. We're not sure in Devil May Cry: the Bloody Palace. It's the new board game from Steamforged Games that's up on Kickstarter now, adapted from the popular Capcom videogame series.
You thought the previous preview was hefty. The Elder Geryon Knight makes the other one seem tiny by comparison. If there's one thing you can expect from Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace, it's apparently some really big figures. We get a look at how this big boy and his beefy horse work in the game.
*looks over at the Devil*
*hands over tissues*
There's a lot of lesser villains in Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace, but there's also a greater demon running around. For example, there's the Empusa Queen. In this preview from Steamforged, we get a look at what Hunters can expect when they face off against her on the table.
Seriously, you have no idea how much I'm looking forward to having Chinese and watching Kung Fu movies tomorrow. 36th Temple of Shao-Lin, Half a Loaf of Kung Fu, Heroes of the East, God of Cookery... I mean, I love gaming, but I love kung fu movies as well. *is a bear of many loves*
Just gotta get through the rest of today. And if we're going to do that, we should munch on some snacks.
Today on the platter we have: Pre-Orders for Kern Available From Steamforged Games, dLUX JUMBO Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Releases Available From Puppets War.
"Bridge may be chocolate." I know I've done the Demitri Martin bit before, but it's all I can think about when I see the title for that game.
Anyway, continuing on with their previews for the Devil May Cry board game they're working on, Steamforged is giving us a look at the Hunter Upgrades that you will be getting in the game.
Steamforged is working on a board game based on the popular video game, Devil May Cry (stock up on tissues, just in case). As would be expected with "Devil" in the title, there's demons in the game. In this preview, we get a look at some that'll be included in the game and a little about what you can expect from them.
The next batch of new captains is available to order from Steamforged. Guild Ball's teams are expanding their roster of captains, getting a 3rd each (well, except for Blacksmiths, who don't have dedicated captains. But they are getting a new master and apprentice).
"Bridge may be icy. I don't know. Bridge may be chocolate."
Sorry to butcher a good Demitri Martin bit for that, but it's what I think of whenever I see titles like that. Anyway, Steamforged Games is coming out with another board game based on a popular video game franchise. This time around, it's Devil May Cry. The Kickstarter campaign for Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace, will be coming to Kickstarter sometime Q2 this year.
