As the new guy this’ll be my first post. Let’s hope I don’t break anything. 🙂
At R.Talsorian Games a recent rant by Lisa updates the status of a number of RTG products. Most noticeable is the delay (again) of Cyberpunk V.3. The reason given being creator Mike Pondsmith’s 12-hour workdays working on the upcoming Crimson Skies XBOX game. Yeah, yeah, we’ve heard it before. 😉 A new release date hasn’t been set but Cyberpunk V.3 is still in the works and has been promised along with several supplements to follow up on the new edition. Also of note is a new edition of Castle Falkenstein in a mass-market paperback with select bits of Comme Il Faut included. That’s incredibly cool (I’m not quite sure why, but it is…). On top of it all RTG will be releasing an Original Mobile Suit Gundam book. A combined RPG and sourcebook, the “timeline is considered definitive.” I wouldn’t know; Gundam just doesn’t strike my fancy. However, for those of you who do love Gundam dearly, look for it in August.
Personally I’m holding out for Cyberpunk V.3. I want it. I want it now. If I have to to break out into a Veruca Salt song and dance number to get it I will. I swear. And no one wants to see that. Least of all me. 🙂
If you’ve somehow managed to miss them, here they are. A slew of updates for WizKids Games‘ upcoming Heroclix: Infinity Challenge. The Superhero Collectible Miniatures Game set in the universe of Marvel Comics. First on the list is a set of Play tips for Spiderman. Second is the actual Rule Book and Super Powers Card so you aren’t able to say you didn’t know what you were getting yourself into. And to top off the Heroclix news is the announcement of the release party at 11:30pm April 30th at WizKids Games itself. If you’re in the area what’s your excuse? Get down there. Take pictures. Send them to us. Coincidentally all of this arrives at almost the same time as Spiderman: The Movie. Coincidence? Yeah, right.
Excuse me while I drool in anticipation.
Also on the WizKids front is a picture of the Forestry Mech and a glimpse at the contents of the Starter and Booster box both from the upcoming Mechwarrior: Dark Age. And for budding game designers, there’s also a job posting located here.
