Sentinels of the Multiverse dev wants to add in all current tabletop expansions

Sentinels of the Multiverse is an interesting game for a couple of reasons. For one, cooperative card games can be a good time no matter the subject matter; just chill with some friends while you see if you can collectively best an inanimat...   read

Arcadian Atlas is just the Final Fantasy Tacticsiest thing

Just last night, I was chatting it up with the Podtoid crew and we got onto the topic of Final Fantasy Tactics. That's not unusual; I think we mentioned it last episode too. Look, I still think about it a lot, nearly 20 years later. I'm not...   read

End of the Mine Kickstarter looks like a creepy good time

"End of the mine" sounds like something an '80s beefcake action star would say before tossing a vaguely European villain into a mine shaft for trying to steal bearer bonds or something. But, it's actually a new game on Kickstarter. The 2D a...   read

Unofficial Kickstarter for Life is Strange sequel canceled in record time

Well, there's that. Much like the fabled Star Wars fangame, another one bites the dust. While most unofficial projects are usually worked on in secret and then torrented into the world (even if only in demo form), some go public immediately...   read

Hell has never been prettier than in Pinstripe
