The Storm Has a Name... The Storm Has a Name...

The High Lords have invaded Earth, dominating us, and spreading their own realities over ours. The dark Cyberpapacy rules over large sections of Europe, India is under control of the monstrous realm of Orrorsh, and large swathes of the United States have been conquered by the low-tech Living Lands. The only thing that…

Justice League Possibly Filming Major Re-shoots Justice League Possibly Filming Major Re-shoots

Well... this is interesting if true. Definitely a grain of salt here, but Batman-on-Film is reporting that the Justice League movie is doing some pretty major reshoots. Re-shoots that may run from June all the way through August, which is kind of insane. That’s basically enough time to film an entire movie. According…

You Got 50,000 on Double Dragon? You Got 50,000 on Double Dragon?

I gotta admit, I still love me a good beat’em up game. Hell, I was practically raised on those bad boys, every quarter munching one. I’m not sure how much money I pumped into games like Double Dragon and Final Fight, but I’m sure my 401k would be doing a lot better had I never found these games in the local arcade.

The Devil Wants Your Soul... and Your Mountain Dew The Devil Wants Your Soul... and Your Mountain Dew

People whisper in hushed tones about a corruption taking hold in the world. A secret wildfire spreading from basement to basement called tabletop. Some say it is evil, some say it is turning their kids into monsters, and some say it is summoning demons.

Thank the Maker

This past weekend was pretty crazy, and it doesn’t look like this has made the rounds here (near as I can tell), but Lucasfilm has made an official announcement regarding the possibility of using CGI Leia in future Star Wars movies, and they are not going forward with any such plans.

2016 Keeps Sucking

It looks like Carrie Fisher may have suffered a major heart attack. Come on 2016, don’t get any worse.

Roleplaying in the 80's That Never Was... But Should Have Been

In 1954, the Swedish government ordered the construction of the world’s largest particle accelerator. The facility was complete in 1969, located deep below the pastoral countryside of Mälaröarna. The local population called this marvel of technology The Loop.

Oh, What a Day... What a Lovely Day... the Game! Oh, What a Day... What a Lovely Day... the Game!

Kickstarter, you will be the death of my damn wallet. After putting down money on some new games the past few months that range from the interesting (Unfair), to the creative (Coriolis), to the just plain pleasant (Herbaceous), here comes one that looks like plain ol’ crazy balls-to-the-wall action; The Devil’s Run:…

Do you have the CHOPS? Do you have the CHOPS?

Are you ready to rock? I know I sure as hell am! I love the Rock and/or Roll, board games, and to have fun on the occasion. CHOPS - The Rock and Roll Board Game looks like it’ll combine all three of those things into one neat little package. Now in its last 48 hours, CHOPS has already been more than funded, but still…

If This Be The End

There seems to be a certain air of finality when io9 is talked about lately. I have no idea what the future holds for a site I’ve come to consider a home away from home over the past few years, but I hope something good comes from all of this. Through some good times and some bad (and there were some very bad times),…

You Spin Me Right Round, Ayer You Spin Me Right Round, Ayer

I’m not in a good mood today...

Greatest Thing From SDCC 2016

Wonder Woman trailer was alright. All the Marvel news was pretty fun. We even got some pretty cool vidya game stuff out of San Diego Comic Con this year. You know what, though? None of it, nothing, compares to what Justin Roiland gave us using a transcript from a Georgia court room, and animating it with Rick and…

Tabletop Gaming, the Final Frontier  Tabletop Gaming, the Final Frontier 

Gen Con is starting to sound like it’ll be a good one this year, with Modiphius showing off their brand new Star Trek Adventures RPG! The first Star Trek RPG released in over 15 years, the game will focus exclusively on the Prime timeline, and none of the reboot films. Star Trek Adventures will allow players to…

Rifts... Only More Savage Rifts... Only More Savage

Ahhhhhh Rifts. One of the zaniest and most interesting tabletop RPGs to come out of the 90's, but also one most held back by its own mechanics. So many cool ideas to read about, (mostly) great art to pour over, amazing characters, and some real cool meta plots (for those that care) to follow.

Henshin! Update!  Henshin! Update! 

So, I’ll be perfectly honest. Real life has been kicking my ass a lot this year, and I have not had the time to work on things the way I intended. My playtest group also dissolved after only a few play sessions, due to real life crap getting in the way for everyone. Still, that hasn’t stopped me from doing what I can…

What is Best in Life? What is Best in Life?

God damn, if Conan isn’t the greatest fictional character in the history of mankind, then he’s surely in the top three. He’s definitely the Duke of New York A#1 in my book.

7th Sea is Back Baby 7th Sea is Back Baby

It was around the summer of 2000 that I was most involved in RPGs. Not that I don’t still have games going on now, it’s just that around 2000 I really had shit going down. It was just after high school graduation, so I spent pretty much all my free time in various RPG groups playing games like Champions, Shadowrun,…

Coooobr... wait. Venoooom! Coooobr... wait. Venoooom!

What’s up with all the great Kickstarters lately? We’ve got the 7th Sea relaunch, a new Conan RPG (which is great), and that jawsome looking TMNT board game, to boot. The turtles said jawsome, right? Sure, why not. Anyway, Kickstarters have been hitting me in just the right spot for the past year, and then I stumble…

Mantis for GotG Vol. 2 Confirmed! Mantis for GotG Vol. 2 Confirmed!

Via a pretty random Facebook comment, James Gunn has confirmed that Pom Klementieff will be playing the celestial madonna herself, Mantis. Pretty psyched about this, as Mantis is one of those truly comic book-y characters out there, with a real zany history that’s all over the place. Cannot wait to see how Gunn has…

Henshin! Transforming Heroes! Henshin! Transforming Heroes!

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers basically hit at the exact right moment for me when I was growing up, and my brother and I were super into the first several seasons. Eventually, I drifted away and got out of it, but slowly found myself getting into some of the original Japanese stuff. Shows like the Super Sentai series,…
