ShadowRun Crossfire Review

The essence of any Shadowrun game, regardless of if it’s the tabletop rpg or one of the computer games is the story. A Shadowrun story is full of “oh crap” moments, double crosses and seat of your pants escapes. A shadow runner lives on the edge, expects the unexpected and adapts with the hopes of living another day. Creating a cooperative card game and trying to capture that feeling must have been an incredible challenge for the design team at Catalyst Labs.

NHL Power Play

Published on October 13, 2014 by

I didn’t become a hockey fan until about my twenties. I attended a New York Rangers vs New Jersey Devils game right before moving to Chicago. Seeing hockey live in my opinion is really what pushes you to loving the sport. The game is fast, physical and the fan interaction is second to none. When I moved to Chicago I decided to follow the Blackhawks, the team was nothing like they are today. Owned by a grumpy old man that wouldn’t let the games be broadcast on public television. Needless to say as a Blackhawks fan, I got in at the right time.
