EVE: The Second Genesis - From The CCG Graveyard
EVE: The Second Genesis was published in 2006 by CCP. Designed by the same people behind the EVE Online game and really for two-players only despite what the packaging says. It followed the standard CCG model with cards available in starter decks and booster packs containing cards of different rarities. You may have noticed how I just wrote in past tense about the game. That’s because EVE: The Second Genesis is no longer in print. A victim of practically zero marketing outside of the MMO and hardly any retailers carrying it. Incidentally I’ve never played EVE Online so I...
 
 
Tunnel Vision
Perhaps it’s just me, but I seem to be noticing of late a lot of people bemoaning the fact that modern game design - particularly in the great American tradition - is lacking in innovation. A little while ago Micheal Barnes caused something of a stir when he proclaimed design had hit a ceiling.

For my own part I’ve devoted column inches on the lamentable state of fantasy adventure games. So what’s with all...

And of course, I can't stand to miss a deadline so here's this week's Cracked LCD- a review of Cryptic Comet's new PC game SOLIUM INFERNUM. It's a pretty good game- if you're playing it with other people. The solo game sucks. Read the review to find out why. In all, I'm, not nearly as impressed with it as I was with ARMAGEDDON EMPIRES, but there are some really great _tabletop_ game ideas in there. Gotta...
 
 
Theme Overdose - Review of Hybrid
I've never tried to candy-coat the fact that I am not a fan of games with weak themes. I don't want a theme that could be swapped out with a dog race, elephant hunting or midget dance contests. I like my games to deliver a 'yeah, I sorta did that' feel. I want to hear the screaming starfighter engines (despite the fact that you couldn't hear them in space). I want to feel the hot breath of the minotaur before I cut him down to size. I want to taste... OK, never mind, I don't actually want to taste...
