I ate a crew member in Tharsis, it wasn't a big deal or anything

I hadn't been keeping up with Choice Provisions' Tharsis, so I had no idea what to expect when Steven assigned me to preview it at PlayStation Experience. As soon as the developer who was leading me through said it was a "realistic spa...   read

Mega Man board game team doing a Street Fighter one

After an exciting EVO weekend of fighting game intensity, I guess it's a good time to announce a much more boring version of that? Jasco Games, the company behind the official Mega Man board game, has partnered with Capcom again, securing t...   read

Tabletop wargame Halo: Fleet Battles available now

Man, look at those dice. There's some explosions, there's a "no" symbol, and there's the iconic Halo skull. I don't know exactly how Halo: Fleet Battles plays, but I do love me some custom dice. Halo: Fleet Battles is based off the Planetfa...   read

Review: Risk

Typically, board games involving just dice aren't my thing. I don't like playing a game in which I feel I have no control in whether I win or lose. Yahtzee is a prime example of this, while Risk is somewhere in between. Much like Monopoly, ...   read
