GenCon 2023 Post Coverage – Borderlands®: Mister Torgue’s Arena of Badassery

One of my favourite booths to stop by at when I visited GenCon this year was the Monster Fight Club booth. Not only were they showing off some amazing terrain and large scale battlemaps, but they were also demoing a board game based on one of my favourite IPs – Borderlands. Shockingly, as someone who visits Kickstarter rather frequently, I was amazed that somehow I missed seeing Borderlands: Mister Torgue’s Arena of Badassery (what a title). When given a demo…

Remasters We Really Need

I’ve written a lot about remakes and remasters lately, but by and large they have been for games that are already easily available. Where’s access to the titles we really need? Like, sure, it’s fantastic I can play Grand Theft Auto 3 on my Xbox Series X. But Liberty City Stories is forever trapped on PSP (or PS2 if you want the inferior version). Same goes for Vice City Stories. There are two entries in one of the most major…

Final Fantasy IX Remake Could Be Good

Final Fantasy IX was a timeless celebration of everything the franchise had been up to that point. It celebrated the best of the SNES classics, while improving on what we had loved about VII and VIII. With X, a new era began, and things have never quite been the same. And that’s why fans are rightfully worried about the upcoming Final Fantasy IX remake. It hasn’t been officially announced yet. But it was on the Geforce leak and insiders have…

Do You Need The Witcher Old World Expansions to Enjoy the Base Game?

I’ve produced a few videos around The Witcher: Old World as well as a couple articles here on the website. A comment I often get is, “You can’t really enjoy this game without the expansions, there isn’t enough content.” So after half a dozen games I’ve decided to revisit those comments and see if I agree or not. Spoiler alert – I do not. Everyone plays board games differently, and sure, if you purchase The Witcher: Old World and played…

City Action Fire Truck and Ambulance a Great Playmobil Product

My youngest child is in love with Playmobil, and over the past year or so he’s seemed to move away from fantasy sets and into more realistic sets, primarily in the City, Pony, and Country themes. Last week, we built both the City Action Fire Truck and the City Action Ambulance, and both provided a fantastic experience. Let’s take a look at each, and see why these are magnificent additions to your Playmobil collection. City Action Fire Truck Included: 2…

Final Fantasy on Xbox? I’ll Believe It When I See It

Final Fantasy XIV is coming to Xbox – and all it took was a decade. I don’t believe in looking a gift horse in the mouth. This is amazing news. But it was the secondary part of this announcement that was more interesting to me. As part of the announcement, it was said this was the beginning of a bigger presence from the publisher on Xbox, and in particular Final Fantasy was mentioned. This comes after years of confusion around…

Koa and the Five Pirates of Mara

If you’ve played Summer at Mara, you know that the colourful game was loved by thousands, providing a great farming simulation / life simulation  experience. The game was colourful and fun, full of unique and interesting characters. While the gameplay might have felt a bit repetitive as it released in a year full of similar style games, it was still a great experience, and one I really enjoyed. When Koa and the Five Pirates of Mara was announced, I was…

Xbox Is Killing Time Til Acti is Bought

There’s been some doom and gloom this week and, as usual, it’s around Xbox. Revenue from Microsoft hardware sales plummeted by 13 per cent. And we should apparently be very, very worried. I’m kidding – it doesn’t matter at all to customers. So long as the product is out there and Microsoft is backing it, why should we worry about the specifics of whether sales on hardware is up or down? It’s console warring for the modern age. Instead of…
