The High Lords have invaded Earth, dominating us, and spreading their own realities over ours. The dark Cyberpapacy rules over large sections of Europe, India is under control of the monstrous realm of Orrorsh, and large swathes of the United States have been conquered by the low-tech Living Lands. The only thing that…
I gotta admit, I still love me a good beat’em up game. Hell, I was practically raised on those bad boys, every quarter munching one. I’m not sure how much money I pumped into games like Double Dragon and Final Fight, but I’m sure my 401k would be doing a lot better had I never found these games in the local arcade.
People whisper in hushed tones about a corruption taking hold in the world. A secret wildfire spreading from basement to basement called tabletop. Some say it is evil, some say it is turning their kids into monsters, and some say it is summoning demons.
Physicist, games programmer and artist DrMike2000's trippy comic Universe Gun is getting a trade paperback edition!
In 1954, the Swedish government ordered the construction of the world’s largest particle accelerator. The facility was complete in 1969, located deep below the pastoral countryside of Mälaröarna. The local population called this marvel of technology The Loop.
Kickstarter, you will be the death of my damn wallet. After putting down money on some new games the past few months that range from the interesting (Unfair), to the creative (Coriolis), to the just plain pleasant (Herbaceous), here comes one that looks like plain ol’ crazy balls-to-the-wall action; The Devil’s Run:…
Are you ready to rock? I know I sure as hell am! I love the Rock and/or Roll, board games, and to have fun on the occasion. CHOPS - The Rock and Roll Board Game looks like it’ll combine all three of those things into one neat little package. Now in its last 48 hours, CHOPS has already been more than funded, but still…
Ahhhhhh Rifts. One of the zaniest and most interesting tabletop RPGs to come out of the 90's, but also one most held back by its own mechanics. So many cool ideas to read about, (mostly) great art to pour over, amazing characters, and some real cool meta plots (for those that care) to follow.
God damn, if Conan isn’t the greatest fictional character in the history of mankind, then he’s surely in the top three. He’s definitely the Duke of New York A#1 in my book.
It was around the summer of 2000 that I was most involved in RPGs. Not that I don’t still have games going on now, it’s just that around 2000 I really had shit going down. It was just after high school graduation, so I spent pretty much all my free time in various RPG groups playing games like Champions, Shadowrun,…
What’s up with all the great Kickstarters lately? We’ve got the 7th Sea relaunch, a new Conan RPG (which is great), and that jawsome looking TMNT board game, to boot. The turtles said jawsome, right? Sure, why not. Anyway, Kickstarters have been hitting me in just the right spot for the past year, and then I stumble…
Good news fellow MSTies, it looks like we are getting 14 episodes after a record setting Kickstarter campaign.
This is it. Less than 24 hours to go on the Bring Back MST3K kickstarter, and the surprises just keep rolling in! We’re within spitting distance of getting a full 12 episodes*, and Joel just revealed that Jack Black, Joel Mchale, Bill Hader, Neil Patrick Harris, Jerry Seinfeld, Dana Gould, and Mark Hamill have all…
Kickstarter published an independent report by a Wharton prof. on the fail rate of Kickstarters (those that get funded, but don’t deliver on their promised pledge goodies.)
Muv-Luv, the visual novel franchise that inspired Attack on Titan a decade ago, is now on Kickstarter to be officially localized in English for the first time. Muv-Luv Alternative, one of the novels to be localized, is considered by Japanese and western audiences to be one of the greatest visual novels in history.

Let’s invent something fun again! But this time, instead of something amazing but complicated like the Wearable Holodeck, we’re going to invent something that a hacker can make on a budget with off the shelf parts.
If you've always wanted to customize the lid of your MacBook but hate the idea of putting stickers on it, a new Kickstarter is attempting to raise funds to produce a laptop case that can be decorated, adorned, or upgraded with most building toys, including Lego.
Blood Sport is the perfect name for am ambitious piece of technology: a rig that will link medical hardware to a video game, and take some of your blood whenever you're hit. All for a good cause, of course.
It's got a kickstarter, so it must be, right?
