Sony is making a Settlers of Catan movie

You know who Sony Pictures is. You know the kind of movies it creates, the drivel that its marketing executives spout. Jack and Jill, Pixels, Ghostbusters (2016), The Emoji Movie. This studio has generated some of the worst p...

Chibi Noctis and Lightning are so cute

Fortune Street: Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary might be off your radar. And that's okay! Because it's slated to only arrive  in Japan later this month on PS4 and Vita, and probably won't ever see the light of day out...

Fantasy Flight Games has quite a few video-game-to-board-game adaptations under its belt at this point (there's Gears of War, XCOM, and DOOM, to name a few). It's about to add another one to its repertoire, and this one's a doozy. Fallout: ...

Expedition is a tabletop RPG on an NES cartridge

A few months ago, my friends and wife and I got together for a game of old school Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. I’ve played every edition to come out since, but there has always been something appealing about the more chaotic, unorga...

Culdcept Revolt gets pushed back to October 2017

During the PS2 days, the Culdcept franchise was one those things that caught my eye, since the idea of having a board game with creature cards sounded interesting. Unfortunately, other titles grabbed my attention so I missed out on playing ...

A Resident Evil board game would rock my world

Many years ago, I found a complete edition of The Legend of Zelda board game from the 1980s on eBay for a shockingly low price. I hesitated but a moment before I clicked “buy now” and waited in eager anticipation for it to arriv...

This new Mario board game looks-a bad

There have been a lot of video games turned board games recently, and some (XCOM, This War of Mine) have turned out okay. But when I first saw Super Mario: Level Up!, I could only shake my head in disappointment. Granted, I haven't read the...

Necromunda is the next Warhammer 40K adaptation

I'm half writing this so I'll have something to jog my memory of the many Warhammer 40,000 video games in production, but yep, there's another adaptation in the works. This one, the turn-based tactical RPG Necromunda: Underhive Wars, is bas...

Hands-on with Armello's Usurpers Hero Pack

My initial reaction when I first fired up Armello, a digital board game produced by Melbourne-based indie studio League of Geeks, was that of wonder. Despite not being visually intensive from a technical standpoint, the art style, presentat...

Things video games need to learn from board games

Video games (single-player ones, at least) teach you that you are the best, you are the only one who matters, you will always get more powerful, that your hand will be held, that you don't need to actually care about other human beings. Boa...
