Weekly News


New Games:

If you’re as eager as we are to check out BioShock Infinite: Siege of the Columbia, maybe this rule book will satisfy you for awhile?




It’s the Mayan Apocalypse . . . again. T’zolkien, the best game about corn and crystal skulls ever, is expanding! Tribes and Prophecies is currently in development. (via Opinionated Gamers)

Another popular game, Space Cadets, is also getting an expansion. There’s not much out about it yet, but Space Cadets: Dice Duel should be available in 2013. (via BGG)

Asmodee’s Ghost Stories: White Moon came out in 2009, but it was really difficult to find and so the price has risen considerably. Thankfully, it’s set to be re-released soon! (via BGG)



Other News:

Yay gender equality, even on a small scale. An LA branch of the Girl Scouts is handing out a Game Development badge. Right now it only applies to video games, but it’s a step in the right direction. (via PurplePawn)

Have any of you read the first few Arkham Horror tie in novels? No? Don’t. (Seriously). There’s going to be a new one out soon, Feeders from Within, and we’re going to guess that you shouldn’t read that one either. Save yourself the trouble and just read some Lovecraft.

If that’s not terrifying enough, check out this little app. It estimates the value of your game collection. (Via FatherGeek)

Lastly, remember that no matter what frustrations you may experience in your games, just be glad you weren’t present for this guy’s ragequit. Breathe in, breathe out.
