Bastion Now Available From Z-Man Games

The enemy is here. The rampaging hordes of monsters have been ransacking the countryside, but now they've made it to the walls of the castle. Comparatively, they outnumber you about a billion to one. But all is not lost... hopefully. By banding together, the remaining survivors look to turn the tide of battle and send the monsters home. But will they succeed, or will the citadel be overrun? That's what you'll have to figure out in Bastion, the new cooperative tower defense game available from Z-Man Games.

Review Roundup

I know. I know. I know. It's Tuesday, not Saturday. But I was a tad busy Saturday, if you didn't notice. ;)
So, after flying home yesterday, and then getting around 12 hours of sleep overnight, I'm looking to get back into the swing of things here. Most companies "shut down" during Gen Con, since they were all at the show, but there's still plenty to catch up with from over the weekend. That starts with the reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

Today we have: Isle of Skye, Zoo Ball, Hunt the Ravager, Evolution, Arena of the Gods, Biotix, Secrets of the Lost Station, Spoils of War, Open Combat Sword Masters, Gothic, The Golden Sails, The Lost Expedition, FourCuatro, Lazer Ryderz, Loot the Body,

Review Roundup

Ah, Saturday.
Don't know about you, but I'm going to be putting together a pair of Guild Ball players (Granite and Veteran Siren) that Ray picked up for me at LVO. Then I'm gonna make my own protein bars (like Clif bars, for those that know about them) since I'm trying to get from the 110 stone that I currently am down to maybe an even 100. I also finished watching Black Books, so I need to find something else to watch. But that's as may be. What you all want right now are reviews. Let's get those to you.

Today we have: Multiuniversum, Multiuniversum: Project Cthulhu, Hero Realms, Hero Realms Character Packs, The Mountains Rise, Legends of Andor: Journey to the North, Band Manager: Backstage Clash, Age of Sigmar, Imhotep, Cavern Tavern, Superhot, Forged in Steel, The Civilized Guide to Tabletop Gaming, Pirate Lords, and Steel Arena.

Star Wars Love Letter Available... For Some

Licensing properties can cause some... interesting situations for us, the consumers. Things like "regional DVDs" and such can make it so a thing we want might be a bit tougher to get than usual. Well, such is the case with Star Wars Love Letter. Yeah, it's available from Hobby World. But unless you've got a contact who's also a Cossack, you might not be able to get one.
