Doomtown Reloaded - Card Game Review
As many of you prepared for your annual trek to GenCon, I feel certain there are a bunch of you planning on making a beeline for the Alderac booth to pick your new, shiny copy of Doomtown Reloaded. And I can hardly blame you – Doomtown was one of the greatest CCGs I ever played, and to this day, remains my absolute favorite. Evil monsters, heroic undead, gunfights and horses and ghost rock – Doomtown was an Old West horror game that always left me half-wishing I could visit, and half-glad I couldn’t. And it wasn’t just the setting,...
 
 
Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Review
There have been many, many attempts at blending role-playing games and strategy games. Until recently, almost all fell foul of the fundamental mismatch between playing co-operatively in the imagination and competing on a board.

The best way to describe it is by my favourite line in the movie, it's a sci-fi movie that actually has the line, "They got my dick message!" Brilliant use of soundtrack too. I think I could watch a tree creature dancing to Jackson Five for hours on end without getting bored. Chris Pratt...
 
 
Snowpiercer - Barney's Incorrect Five Second Reviews
I sometimes forget what a nice treat it is to walk into a movie with no expectations whatsoever. So it was with this film which just kept surprising me over and over. A failed attempt to deal with global warming basically wrecks the entire planet, rendering everything extinct. Luckily a resourceful train enthusiast has developed a sustainable train cruise which fosters the remnants of human civilization. You can imagine what type of society that has created. Splice together Hunger Games with Matrix's Zion. Tilda Swinton is a hoot and I especially liked Alison Pill's sequence as...
