Doom: The Board Game is the most beloved Board Game I have. Kevin Wilson's 2004 survival classic is one of the most authentic video to board game creations i've ever played. For the Marines, each game is a nail biter as instead of dungeon exploration and the collection of loot your goal is to escape Mars base alive. Today Fantasy Flight dropped news that they are rebooting Doom the Board Game with an all new design to pair up to the recent Doom remake.

"Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of DOOM: The Board Game, a completely redesigned tactical combat experience for two to five players based on Bethesda’s blockbuster video game,... Read All

According to some very interesting rumors the Nintendo NX might be a tablet with detachable controllers (seen above) that sports an NVidia processor that you can plug into your TV that will take some kind of flash-like game karts. What this basically means is that, if true, Nintendo's next console will be a fairly powerful system while rooted in a touch interface with a traditional controller attached.

If you've been following the site for a while now you know we talked about some of the things we all wanted to see in the NX back in March. In my article I said i'd love it if Nintendo offered a Netflix styled game download system and that the NX should be... Read All

Humble Bundle is running a 2K bundle that just added Freedom Force and Freedom Force VS The Third Reich. Freedom Force was made by Irrational Games in 2002 and is a top down turn based super hero strategy brawler you may not have played. It is heavily rooted in campy comic book stories and when I played it in 2002 I really enjoyed the graphics, quirky story and humor. I'm not sure how the game holds up but i'll be playing it soon and write up some thoughts on it.

The 2K Bundle also contains some really great games in Borderlands The Pre-Sequel, Battleborn + DLC, Railroad Tycoon 3, The Bureau XCom Declassified, Mafia 2, NBA 2K16, Civ V, Duke Nukem Forever,... Read All

The tiny console wars are upon us! In October, a mini-Genesis with 80 built-in games will be arriving.

This is coming in two versions, the one pictured, and a handheld version:

Both versions retail for about $65 USD and are currently only available from a UK retailer.

Both have 80 built-in games, but they have expansion capabilities. The mini-console has a slot to play original Genesis carts, and the handheld has an SD card slot (so are they tacitly approving of downloading roms?).

So lets talk about those games! 80 of them! That's 50 more than the mini NES! Well, yes it is. But you'll only care about 40 of them probably. The... Read All

LucasFilm is slowly releasing all the panel videos from Star Wars Celebration 2016 and as i've been watching them, I have another batch to share. Linked above is the Star Wars Rogue One panel where we get a small amount of new information on the movie from director Gareth Edwards and the stars of the new film. It's a really sneak peek at the film and after watching all the Rogue One news bits to come out of Celebration 2016 i'm more excited about checking out Rogue One in December.

I know some of you said you weren't getting the new NES classic, but all your fears have been put to rest because here is an official video showing it off! If i've learned one thing it's that people can't resist advertising so let me know if this turned you around to picking one of these up on November 11th.

Commercial's work. Right?

Have you always wanted to have a party in Terraria? Well now the Party Girl or certain other NPC's will throw one under certain conditions you set up. As with any new feature, they don't say what they conditions are but I imagine it will come to the wiki at some point.

When we run our next server we should throw a party.

"You’ve fled your home, only to find yourself lost in space with a damaged ship. Your only option is to beam down to the planet below and gather the resources you need to repair your ship and set off to explore the vast, infinite universe…"

Starbound launched today and to help celebrate I installed 1.0 and gave it a shot. I'll have a more formal review later but my initial impression is mixed. That said, I am curious what others think of 1.0 and how you are playing it?

What did you think of the opening story mode?

I'm a huge fan of Tabletop RPG's, in fact, I play Pathfinder regularly. Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition is the prequel to the original Divinity, which has a sequel, Divinity II - Ego Draconis/The Dragon Knight Saga. While I never played the original (or spinoffs) I played both versions of Divinity II, totaling ~200 hours of my life. Pro-tip: If you own Ego Draconis, your save does NOT carry over to TDKS as they have different coding. That's due to Atlus buying the title and re-releasing it as TDKS.

Divinity II is an RPG style of gameplay by modern standards. Third person rear-view, run around, open combat, etc. Original Sin (the most recent... Read All

The developer of StardewValley tweeted some amazingly terrible news today.

"Quick Update: Mac & Linux are set to be launched on the 29th! Multiplayer, localizations, and the version 1.1 update are still in progress."

Well see on one hand that's good because the reason I haven't picked it up yet is because Stardew Valley lacked a Mac port so now that's solved. On the other hand it's terrible as I am sure all my free time will go down a virtual farming hole. A few Twitter fans asked ConcernedApe some questions about what tech they used to port the game.

"ConcernedApe: It was done with Monogame, as a milestone in the progress toward releasing console... Read All

Perhaps it was driven by availability, but growing up, I very much enjoyed platforming games. Super Mario Bros 3, Mega Man, Duck Tales, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; heck, I even played the crap out of Barbie for the NES, because my family owned it, so I played it.

But lately, I've found I'm drawn less and less to platforming games. I bought the remastered version of Duck Tales, and played through about half of it. Shovel Knight came and went without me finding any interest in it. Even Mighty No 9 doesn't interest me, at all, when I loved the game series it was modeled after.

I've been trying to figure out why, and it's finally occurred to me.

There have been rumblings in the Hearthstone community of a new adventure for the last couple weeks. In the video linked above Disguised Toast makes a pretty good case for the new adventure being themed after the World of Warcraft area Karazhan and might also be focused on the Mage class. I've been saving up my gold and have enough for 4 adventure wings and a almost have enough to open another 20 packs. Not sure if I want to open Classic or Whispers of the Old Gods packs but i'm sure either choice would be a good one. With that, today Blizzard has sent out an announcement of an event on July 28th @ 11pm that will unveil the new adventure streaming on... Read All

This years Star Wars Celebration in the UK was the place to be for rabid fans of all things Yoda. Star Wars Celebration is a yearly convention that talks about what's happening in the Star Wars universe by way of panels, interviews, art exhibits and expo floor. The above link is to the Mark Hamill interview where he talks about his short work on Episode VII, the old trilogy and drops a few incredible lines in the voice of the Joker from the recent Killing Joke animated film. There were a couple panels that Disney hasn't released footage of yet namely the Rogue One panel, which I can't wait to watch. I've collected more links to some of the more interesting... Read All

Fallout Shelter launched hours after Bethesda's Todd Howard took the stage at E3 2015. It was a bit of shock to see Bethesda launch it's first mobile game but they nailed it as it was one of the most popular mobile games of that year. Since it's launch it's received some updates but it's most recent 1.6 update may be the biggest to date. I've been playing the new version for the last few days and if you've been away from Fallout Shelter since its launch last year, you need to come back to the vault!
