Shadowrun: Sprawl Ops Boardgame

Wanna run against your omaes?  Then this board game is for you!  Wanna run WITH them?  There's an expansion for that!

Watch your back.  Shoot straight.  Conserve ammo.  And never, ever cut a deal with a dragon.

Yes, I know, it's been 6 years since someone on this forum asked for it to be released in North America, but it happened!  And I bet the Super Best Friends had a hand in it, considering they did a full LP of the game, and asked their viewers to bug From Software about the game.

Now here's what I'd like to see happen with a big name game.  Put in loot boxes, with their odds of winning, and put in each winnable item with a set purchase value, so that players can choose to gamble or just straight up buy the stuff they want.  See which system sees more use.

Obviously, loot boxes should be "cheaper", incentivizing them to be bought.  I figure many people will buy loot boxes to get a bunch of stuff at the start, then just buy the items they actually want.  Some will skip loot boxes entirely, going for just the stuff they want and not caring about the rest, and some will likely exist almost solely upon loot boxes.  But what will the actual ratios be?  That would be some interesting data ...

Hahaha, nice try.  RE4 trumps even Skyrim!

Platform(s)    GameCube, PlayStation 2, Microsoft Windows, Wii, Zeebo, iOS, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Android, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

vs Skyrim's

Platform(s)    Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

So there's a kickstarter for a new board game that plays a lot like the Alien movies, Nemesis.

Cooperative gameplay, with secret objectives so you might want to lie and/or betray other players to get ahead.  Main goal is to escape the space ship infested with "intruders", without getting infected.

Finally got around to watching the 2nd ep of Anime Crimes Division.  Sad that it's nowhere near where it could have been.

Yeah, EA's gonna destroy DICE for sure now.  Expect the company's next game to go much like ME:A did, and then EA goes on a feeding frenzy to salvage what they can and write off the rest.

Looks like DICE might be EA's next sacrificial goat to get destroyed by the company ...

I have long forgotten which thing EA did to get me to start boycotting them years ago, but that doesn't really matter, as they find reasons every year or two (or multiple reasons this year alone) to keep that boycott alive and well.

EA Fired Plants vs Zombies Creator for Refusing Microtransactions in Sequel

EDIT: Is it wrong that I kind of want some sort of congressional committee hearing regarding loot boxes, microtransactions and gambling?

This is the kind of crap that's why I still boycott EA.

I did look at them, but I've already got tons of dice, and 99% of my tabletop gaming nowadays is done via Maptool.

Unstable Unicorns  A card game where you build a stable of unicorns, and kill off the other players' unicorns.  5 days left to get in on it.

The Purify Spell metamagic lets you AoE with impunity, so long as your allies are also good.  And it does bonus damage to evil outsiders.

Aligned Spellcaster ACF is pretty good, too, if you have a familiar you can get rid of.

Just a little added perspective for point 10: I also remember a superhero story where the hero kept building newer and more powerful suits of power armour over and over and over, slowly assembling a massive collection that he eventually turned into a small autonomous army.  Each suit was obviously more powerful and expensive than the last, so that sounds exactly what he was describing.

(I'm referring to Iron Man, if you didn't guess)
