Harebrained Schemes is back with another kickstarter, this time for a tactical PC game in the Battletech Universe. Pretty good move since HBS founder Jordan Weisman created Battletech in the 80’s a time of hair bands and arcades. Read the media alert after the jump.
The law of averages tells me at some point Gale Force 9 will produce a game I don’t care for. I love Spartacus, Firefly and Sons of Anarchy. They are all A+ games in my book, each for very different reasons. Well fortunately the streak hasn’t ended because with Homeland Gale Force 9 has managed to deliver the tension of a game like Battlestar Galactica in a fraction of the time.
The Temple of Elemental Evil board game is the surprising fourth release in the D&D adventure game system which launched with Castle Ravenloft in 2010 and was produced by Wizards of the Coast. The original game was very well received and was quickly followed by two additional titles in 2011. The first was called Wrath of Ashardalon and the second The Legend of Drizzt, which until now was my favorite in the series.
With Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition launch being such a success, Wizards has been working with the strategy of releasing two adventure / campaign focuses a year. The Elemental Evil campaign produced a fantastic campaign for the role-playing game, a miniature line and updates to the Neverwinter MMO.
Paizo has recently released their third Pathfinder Adventure Card game and this time it is based on the Wrath of the Righteous adventure path. If I’m being completely honest I didn’t care for the second game in the series Skull & Shackles. While I’ve played the Rise of the Runelords set to death, Skulls just didn’t grab me.
I almost canceled my subscription to opt out of the third game but I can tell you now that I’m glad I didn’t. Wrath of the Righteous offers some new game mechanics, exciting scenarios and great player characters. If the base set and first adventure deck are any indication, Wrath of the Righteous might be the best set to date.
As we get close to E3 announcements will be dropping left and right. One game I’m looking forward to is Sword Coast Legends. Well today news is out on a release date for the PC version as well as news that the game will be coming to consoles. Hit the jump for the E3 trailer and the release.
