A day in the life of a jetpack-wearing dragon monarch photo
A day in the life of a jetpack-wearing dragon monarch
by Fraser Brown

Does slapping a jetpack onto a dragon sound ridiculous to you? Are you incredulous at such a prospect? You shouldn't be. How the hell does such a beast fly without mechanical assistance? Dragons are big, buff enough to make one wonder if they are all on steroids, and -- according to Skyrim -- their bones are the heaviest things in the world. They'd need wings the size of a town to even get them an inch off the ground.

So, perhaps Larian Studios was being rather reasonable when they decided to develop a steampunk RTS with jetpack-wearing dragons. There's probably a dragon physiology expert on the team. After making so many dragon-focused titles, there certainly should be. 

This is not to say that Dragon Commander isn't a little bit silly -- there's a snooty lizard man who keeps insulting you and the dwarves wear bowler hats and bling, after all. Yet, for every gag, there's something underneath it that's inventive and surprising, and most surprising of all is that flying through the skies as a technologically-augmented magical lizard was not the most entertaining aspect.

Jim and Larian are playing Divinity: Original Sin now!

I'm online with Larian Studios right now, playing Divinity: Original Sin, the game that's got less than a day to meet its final stretch goal on Kickstarter.  We've put this together as an unplanned last-minute thing and I'm looking forward to giving it a good ol' look and maybe stabbing something with a sword. Enjoy!

gamescom: Dragon Commander SE will include board game
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Larian Studios wants to include a board game version of Dragon Commander in the special edition retail release. They're still looking to find a cheap solution for the production, as right now the options available to them are rather expensive.

I got to see a prototype version of what they're trying to create while checking out the game for PC. The plastic pieces were made with a 3D printer, and the actual box cover was originally for RISK that they covered up with Dragon Commander art. It was just a proof of concept of course, and I'm really hopping they can pull it off.

Worst case, there is still the actual game to play, which is shaping up rather nicely.
