I just tried to get to their website to find out more info about Tomb of Ice, and found a placeholder pointing me to http://new.fantasyflightgames.com/ - it's a snazzy new website. It also has info about some new games on it, like Talisman and Android. I'm guessing that was the Jinteki game!

Much better looking website... That was the one thing I didn't like about FFG... Their site seemed very 2002...

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Very nice work! That Android trailer is pimp. Kudos.

And Descent, and probably a few others as well

Adam...you beat me to the punch. I was spending way too much time navigating FFG's new site and by the time I was going to post this news on BBG....you had already done so.

The site is very nice....

Already signed up for their new forums. I think you must start a new...old info is not available at the moment.

You get to add the FFG games you own...very nice feature.

You also get to select your top four games which is attached to your avatar (and they are new too). I will miss old Homer....sigh.

It's new and there will be bugs....but a gleaming new site for me!

Thanks FFG for taking the time to keep your patrons interested....

My only problem with the site is that when I click 'Buy it' on the Android page it doesn't work.

Could you fix that right away, Jeremy?

I'd like to be playing it by Thanksgiving.

Other then that the site looks great.

Looks great. My only complaint is the annoying noise on each page. Please, please remove the sounds. I hate sites that do that.

The flash animations did cause some minor hickups on my end. Those with slow connections will probably be cursing the new site. But if you have a high speed connection you should be fine.

"Jinteki" is the name of a corporation in Android -- you can see it in that rather badass trailer

I was checking obsessively for Tomb of Ice's release date! I must have spotted it almost as it went up Turns out, ToI has been spotted in some FLGS so my order for it will ship soon. Most excellent.

Would be nice to be able to stop the animation and the annoying sound.

Also: do I have to register now to get access to support files? I have no interest in the community there, I am not particularly keen on posting my personal info there, and really do not want Fantasy Flight to send me promotional stuff based on my "collection"... I have mine on BGG, it's huge and I am pretty happy with it

Get me right: I own plenty of excellent Fantasy Flight games, follow all the new releases and intend to buy more. I just simply want to get to support page and download my files as before, without having to send more of my personal data into the cyberspace

The quick answer is to just turn your sound off, especially if you have an unrequitted hate for websites with this feature. Why ask someone to do something for you when you have the complete power to do it yourself?

Once they take the sounds off, then there will be another post that says "Hey, put those sounds back on".

I was interested in Android until I went all the way through the site and couldn't actually find a picture of the game.

Considering there is one on the flash ad on BGG I would add that to the game's info at least.

There's some stuff if you go to Android's page through the catalog. I know at the very least there's a flash banner that ends with a shot of some of the game components, not to mention the ones shown in the trailer.

And of course, more info about Android will be forthcoming.

I'd like to see more photos of the actual games. Lots of nice text and artwork. But I'm not seeing many photos of the actual components, all laid out.

And the release date? Does all the flash-bang-wallop mean it is available today or is this something that wil be available soon. It sounds like a great one for Thanksgiving night



Edit; just saw the availble soon note.

I tried to register but my country is not in the list for selection... Coutries like Brunei and other exotic names are in, but Bulgaria, an EU member - not... I hope you'll fix this - all the countries in the world should be included. Don't you want fans and customers from all over the world?

Absolutely! It was an oversight, and I will contact our programmers immediately to have that fixed.

Sorry about that!

We will continue to add more data and images to each game's page in the days and weeks to come.

Thanks in advance for your patience!

I don't mean to remove the sound, just add a way to switch it off. And I wouldn't mind a way to switch off the Flash stuff too.

It is very rude of sites to have noisy webpages and many sites have an option to turn it off. So far I can find none for this site.

I shouldn't have to turn my speakers down just for one site, if I'm listening to music while surfing then why must a site require me to shut off all my sound just for them?
