BattleCon gets in for a good Kickstarter

BattleCON (short for Battle Connection) a head to head fighting game where two players take on different characters and attempt to defeat one another in single combat. It mirrors the strategy and tactics of a console fighting game like Street Fighter, BlazBlue, Guilty Gear, or Virtua Fighter. You may have seen other games like that before. The idea isn’t revolutionary, but the gameplay is. Here’s a breakdown.

Tommy’s take on Age Past Preview.

Age Past is an upcoming fantasy RPG by Jeff Mechlinkski, and I have been given the opportunity to preview the book. Now, this is just that, a preview…I won’t be doing a full review here. The PDF I was given clocks in currently at 253 pages, with some material still missing as well as several placeholders for art. The estimated completion date is September 2011, so I think they still have time.

Divine Foes

Divine Foes is a short PDF supplement for the Divinity system. The layout is a simple 2 column affair with a good sized font and no real art save for a background design on the pages themselves. The pages are designed to look old and faded, with a vaguely arcane symbol imprinted in the centre. While I like the virtual aging of the pages, I’m not a fan of the background image. While subtle, it draws my eyes away from the text and makes the PDF more challenging to read than it needs to be.
