Emergency Update

Hey Games Fans, some of you are aware of that death of my mother recently, and some of you are not.  This is an official (ish) notification and we will be closing down for at least the end of the year to take care of family things and making sure that we honor her appropriately and celebrate the holidays with her spirit in mind. 

This has shaken all of us deeply, and it will take time for us to recover from the sudden shock of her untimely passing.  As things get back to normal, we will start creating articles again.  Thank you for wishes, thoughts, prayers, and condolences in this time of tribulation.

2018 (A flash forward)

Hey Game Fans, it’s that time of year again and we’re going to take a look at some new ideas and thoughts for what we’re going to do around the office for 2018 to keep bringing you spectacular content and new ideas about gaming. We have a cyclical relationship with games, and what that means to us is that we go through a cycle of engagement and disengagement with the games we love. This means we sort of lose track of them and pick up new, shiny things that we are interested in, and we’re in the middle of several of those cycles as we speak. So what does that mean for 2018?

The Year of Battletech

If you read this blog often, you know that we’re huge fans of Battletech (in all of its many wonderful forms), and 2018 is looking like a banner year for the franchise. With new starter sets for the board game in the works, two new computer games slated for release, and a host of other developments on the horizon, it’s a great time to be a fan of giant stompy robots fighting over a Game of Thrones esque feudal system. Let’s talk a little bit about some of the developments and see what the future holds.
