I mean I'd like to think I'm type B. But that's different when you're playing pen and paper RPG. Even when playing online or single player computer RPG, preference changes. I want to have a game in there. At this point, some reviews make PACG sounds like a repetitive dice rolling until your character dies. I'm worried it may be so. I think for now, I'll have to stick with Descent 2.0 campaign mode for that "RPG" feel. At least Descent 2.0 is a great tactical skirmish game.
I like games with minis. Especially games with good minis. I like Super Dungeon Explore (even though the game play is not top notch), Earth Reborn (even though setup takes 3 days a long time), Descent 2.0, Claustrophobia...
I've been secretly wishing for a skirmish game with good minis, comes pre-painted, and plays up to 4. Claustrophobia comes close with good pre-painted minis, but it only plays up to 2. And it is not really tactical skirmish. So when Krosmaster comes about I was excited.
I love Netrunner! It is arguably one of the best 2 players game I've ever played. However, after all the datapacks, I'm not sure if I can continue. While this is not like Magic (CCG), the LCG doesn't seem to stop. There is no light at the end of the tunnel. I don't play tournament, or competitive. I just do casual Netrunner with my buddies. We build a couple of decks and play. I'm seriously considering ending our purchase with C&C and that's it.
I'm so getting this game now!
Ermm.. let's wait a while and see... It's never ending...
I'm not a trekkie (sp?). But I do enjoy Star Trek, both the earlier TV series as well as the latest movies. I do enjoy Star Wars X-Wing. So this has been on the radar for a while. Early reviews are very positive. It seems like I can make room for two different franchise using "similar" systems.
Firefly! Serenity! Plus the strong prior IP, Spartacus. I've been looking out for a strong thematic space exploration/adventure game.. that plays within 2 hours. Firefly could have been it!
I'm so getting this game now! It's Firefly! Serenity! Strong credentials from GF9 with previous Spartacus game.
Ermm.. let's wait a while and see... Most GenCon reviews came back poorly. Especially the 3 hours play time.
Space. I really like Eclipse. But at the end, Eclipse is more of a Euro than a space adventure game. It seems the search for a good thematic space adventure game that plays in less than 2 hours continues.
A Days of Wonder release! How long has it been since the last DoW release? But sadly at first glance, Relic Runner looks like an over-produced mediocre game.
I'm so getting this game now!
Ermm.. let's wait a while and see...
I always enjoy Miami Dice because of the different point of views. This review seems to give a very balanced view. When everyone is rating the game, it almost seems like the higher rating is just because of DoW and the chrome. Tom says it's way better than Elfenland. But it is not a very strong game. And "if the components were dull, I won't keep it."
For now, I'll stick with... Airline Europe/TTR/Small World.
I love Pandemic. But my experience with Forbidden Island has not been good. It's great to hear of this new game which takes Forbidden Island further. Preliminary reviews have been great. The game components are beautiful. And the moving desert plus uncovering of location mechanics looks neat.
I'm so getting this game now! A better version of Forbidden Island.
Ermm.. let's wait a while and see... A weaker version of Pandemic.
After a few more reviews, it seems that Forbidden Desert is not for me. I'm still intrigued by the mechanics and the beautiful components. But Pandemic with its few expansions probably fill the gap of that simple co-op. For everything harder, I have Robinson Crusoe. So not sure where will Forbidden Desert go.
For now, I'll stick with... Pandemic/Robinson Crusoe.
You rate BattleLore a 10 and Memoir 44 as a 9.5. Why not try some of the other Commands & Colors series? The Austrian expansion for C&C Napoleonics is supposed to come out this month. Also Samurai Battles: Ninja Attack expansion is coming out if you're interested in a Samurai version of BattleLore.
Played Kingdom Builder months ago and really liked it quite a bit. Was ready to pick it up when I did a little research and found out that a Big Box version (that seems like a great deal and contains expansions AND some smaller promos) is coming out. Now I've been waiting on that for several months, maybe it will come out this month like they project.
