pic43663_t[1]A REVIEW IN HONOR OF THE D-DAY LANDINGS ANNIVERSARY

By Evaldas Bladukas

It’s been 70 years since the D-Day landings and to celebrate the souls that fought in the war, for the next two weeks we’ll be having a look at World War 2 themed tabletop games. Memoir ’44 has been a mainstay of the genre for ten years now and is a game that still sees a lot of support from the publishers. It uses the Command & Colours system which has been utilized in numerous other war games.

p.s. Just like in all good things, our video this week features a post-credit sequence. Make sure you stick around! You won’t be disappointed.

This time there’s no sketch. No jokes. Something completely different.

Efka tackles his first role-playing game review and he chose one that’s quite precious to him, The Created. This game always stood out as something just a bit more bizarre and eccentric. It’s certainly unusual – how many other games let you play a sewn up monstrosity?

We hope you enjoy this video, and if you miss Elaine – no worries. She’ll be back soon!

UKGE_logoAlways a fun topic to cover, this time I had the – as always – enormous pleasure of Sarah Newton’s company at the UK Games Expo to talk a bit about where RPGs are coming from, where they are now and we think they’re going.

Some tough questions and answers and this time I didn’t mince my words. Find out what I think about Hasbro and why I think Paizo has the keys to the future of Roleplaying games!

Let us know what your take is on the past, present and future of RPGs!

UK-Games-Expo-300x336[1]One of the highlights of the UK Games Expo was to be able to get some of the biggest names in the gaming industry to sit around a table and discuss games, gaming and a bit of Kickstarter.

Had the pleasure of having Christian Petersen from Fantasy Flight Games, Bob Carty from Mayfair Games (we were meant to have Loren Roznai but, unfortunately she was unable to make it due to pressing commitments) and Justin Ziran from Wizkids giving us some very interesting insight and and opinions on where games companies are not, where they’ve been and where they could be in the next few years.

We had a bit of interference from Christian’s phone. We’ve done our best to eliminate it, but alas we’ve been unable to get rid of it fully.

Hope you enjoy the show!

UK-Games-Expo-14531_image[1]Game design is something a lot of us aspire to do. Well, me not so much. Only a bit.

Anyway. some people are very good at it and it shows because they have very good games out there. So it makes sense to have people in a panel who have very good games out there. It also makes sense to have someone hosting the panel who knows a lot about games.

For this (rather fantastic) panel, Henry Jasper (http://www.grublin.com/) and Tony Boydell (http://surprisedstaregames.co.uk/) join Dr Mike Reddy to discuss all sorts of things game design related.

It’s pretty good!

pic1356616_t[1]Feel like that concrete slab you live on just doesn’t quite do it for you? Maybe it’s time to employ some workers, give them some shovels and turn it into some wonderful desolate ashland. At least that’s what I would do if I was playing the Darklings in Terra Mystica.

Not enough shovel in your life to just set out and start terraforming (regardless of what your neighbours might think)? Maybe a visit to your local cult headquarters is in order.
