  1. I am counting on Middara to ship on time and distract my group from Gloomhaven for a while
  2. If I back I know damn well I want that neoprene mat. I’m waiting for a couple more updates - specifically info on some of the ways the quests are done up. The rules look tight enough though...
  3. I mean, a gimmick with three rotating levels that lights up and barfs skulls all over the board and has a built-in speaker Stop Thief from Restoration also used an app and it was a lot of fun. It’s more app-enhanced than gimmick. Mansions of Madness is a great example too. The first edition of that game is overly overly complex and it’s full stop an hour shorter at least with the app handling are the crap. I mean, I haven’t backed Dark Tower yet, but I likely will (I want to watch the Dice Tower where they played a full game of it). It’s got some serious design chops behind it. Sounds like Omega Virus might be the next one out of the gate for them after this...
  4. Yeah, Oath is a non-starter here (I can’t even get my group to play Vast yet...). Foundations of Rome looks like plastic and solo multiplayer, not suited to me crew. Card builders are already in the collection. Thus...! Only one of interest to me :).
  5. Be nice if they could edit out Steve . If RE3 is as solid an experience as 2, I am all for the changes. I did enjoy 3, I think it was my first RE game back in the day, but it had room for improvement.
  6. Return to Dark Tower launched this morning. I’m only in for the BackerKit at present (we just bought a couch AND are heading off on vacation, so...) but it and Frosthaven are the two KS games I was looking to back this year. I have to say my fondness for KS has hit a natural lull because the quality of what companies send you varies so wildly. At least Restoration Games does great work, same with Cephalophair, so I can feel a bit better about it.
  7. Current shrine count - 48. One Divine Beast cleared. 40-odd korok seeds collected. Still missing at least four towers for map segments and some areas barely explored. This game’s quite the project. Fun as hell, but long. Currently hunting guardians and that is some sweet revenge after the first parts of the game.
  8. Hopefully I can get back under $2000 this year (fewer CEs and full price games would do it...)... January: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore - $79.24 Ys VIII - $40 Total Spent: $119.24
  9. We need a fresh one of these, Brian, hint
  10. So I’m not sure this is my favorite Zelda, but it IS the best Zelda. I’ll go into it more when I wrap it up much later but here is why, in a single example: I was attempting one of the motion control dungeons - it was done up like one of those stupid tilting labyrinth wooden mazes and you have to work the stone out and over into the target. My attempts are in the double digits and I cannot get it through the maze - the tilt is super sensitive and the maze has tons of spots with no safety from falling. Annoyed, I notice that I can tilt this maze an AWFUL lot. Then, I flip the controller over completely and the maze turns completely upside down - it’s totally flat and open on the back side. I balance the sphere, tilt it down, flip it over after 2-3 tries, shrine done. That kind of player agency is why this game kills it. You get to do things the way you want far more than many games and I am down for it.
  11. Oh I don’t even remember - it was super pedantic. It was the player, not the game. One of those cases where they couldn’t let it go. Also it was at least five years ago
  12. I played my copy of KoT once, had a rules argument, never played it again. So the game won Think the gf and I are going to play Marvel Champions and Aeon’s End Legacy on New Year’s. I grabbed a copy of Dune from GF9 and am going to get a six player game of that going for mid-January, hopefully. Very much a good fit for some of the stabbier members of my group (like me!).
  13. I play mine docked and undocked with equal measure, never had the fan go off like that. Launch model here :).
  14. And having cleared the Great Plateau, I am very close to where I left things on my last Breath of the Wild play through. The final game... has begun. Initial impressions remain the same - this game is so, so very good.
