The Storm Has a Name...

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…

Thank the Maker

This past weekend was pretty crazy, and it doesn’t look like this has made the rounds here (near as I can tell), but Lucasfilm has made an official announcement regarding the possibility of using CGI Leia in future Star Wars movies, and they are not going forward with any such plans.

Do you have the CHOPS?

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…

If This Be The End

There seems to be a certain air of finality when io9 is talked about lately. I have no idea what the future holds for a site I’ve come to consider a home away from home over the past few years, but I hope something good comes from all of this.

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,…

Coooobr... wait. Venoooom!

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…

Henshin! Transforming Heroes!

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers basically hit at the exact right moment for me when I was growing up, and my brother and I were super into the first several seasons. Eventually, I drifted away and got out of it, but slowly found myself getting into some of the original Japanese stuff. Shows like the Super Sentai series,…
