Need For Speed The Run

So I rented this game and thought I would share the experience with everyone. I hope you're not a fan.

Gears of War Board Game

Last week we had the pleasure of enjoying yet another fun fantasy flight board game, Gears of War.  Just like its console cousin the game features 1-4 player co-op and plays very similar.  The game system features missions that progress when certain criteria are met and has a unique ‘AI’ card system that keeps the enemy interaction interesting.  Each mission has a different tile setup that adds to the replay value.  The difficulty of the game is moderate and teamwork is crucial to survival, so if you have a teammate that’s more worried about picking up a gun rather than completing an objective you’re probably going to perish, horribly.

Sorry about the lack of regular updates lately. We're getting back on track soon hopefully. I've got a large number of board games to post about and more RPGs for our game list. Since our Star Wars game is on hiatus the NPC Spotlight is out for a while, at least until we get a long term game going again.

D&D 5 Edition Playtest

We are currently taking a break from Starwars to try out a few other games.  Those of you who have enjoyed Talon's Journal Entries, fear not!  We will resume that campaign sooner or later.  The week before last we play tested Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.  The game takes the group into a typical dungeon dive full of creatures, traps and treasure.  From what I gathered by playing this new system is that it combines the best elements from all of the previous systems and is quite awesome.  I played as a pre-gen High Elf Wizard at level 1.  Things have changed quite a bit since 3.5, no longer to I have to fear death after 1/2 of a hit to my character or count myself out of spell casting after 2 magic missile spells!  No!  MM has been moved the cantrips list and can be cast at will without any preparation!  But enough of that, here is an excerpt of our adventure.

A New Contest Looms

I just got about 60 redundant Steam Keys and need to liquidate them. There are 8 games in the mix including Puzzle Kingdom, Disciples II and Beat Hazard. If you're here from my Eve Online giveaway please leave a comment on this post so I can see how well this traffic drive is doing.

Change of Pace

So we had a little meeting last night and decided that we're putting the Star Wars game on hiatus.
