Pre-Release Review of Atlantis Rising by Z-Man Games

Game lenght How many times have guys played the game since this review? Is it one you go back to? I also wondered how long the game is to play. My group loves Arkham and Last Night on Earth and are always interested in new co-op/team games.

A Review of Dungeon Command by Wizards of the Coast

Great info once again! I would drop some XP, but it appears I have already done so recently ;)

Review of Heroes Against Darkness by Justin Halliday

"2010 to 2013 as the Era of the Retro-clones" The Retro-Clone movement must have been in high gear in 2008, since I have PBP and Yahoogroup PBEM retro-clone games dating from that time - I was just looking back over them yesterday! Castles and Crusades was not a retro-clone, but came out in 2004 Castles & Crusades - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - and got people thinking along those lines...

Review of Kobold Quarterly Issue #22 (Summer 2012) by Open Design

Pathfinder Review: Advanced Race Guide

The tieflings are shortchanged vs the aasimars again... the ARG misses the worthwhile bit of the tiefling standalone product (like possible different ability modifiers that make the fiendish sorcery worthwhile at last). Aasimar gain racial feats for true flight and metallic skin while tieflings can at best gain small vestigal wings as a racial trait... The Merfolk have 3 +2 traits, natural...

Steve Jackson on Wil Wheaton's "Tabletop"

Wil Wheaton's web series Tabletop featured an interview with Steve Jackson in the latest episode. The episode itself also featured Felicia Day and and Sandeep Parikh and looked at Jackson's card game, Munchkin. The show mainly deals with board games, but the occasional RPG mentions pop up from time to time, like now. You can find out more about Tabletop over at Felicia Day's GeekandSundry.
D&D pronunciation. Does it matter? No. Can it be fun to discuss? Sure! While pedantry over pronunciation is the opposite of charisma, that's no reason not to look at the etymology of some of the words we use in our games.

Review of Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG by Goodman Games

Thanks for a great review of a great game!

Review of Diablo 3 by Blizzard Entertainment

Wow, you thought the storyline was good? Does it get radically, incredibly better after Act I? Because I've got to tell you, if it doesn't, I have no idea what you're thinking. I played Act I and was less than impressed. Then I watched the Act I end cinematic and quit the game. If D3 had been a book, I would have thrown it across the room at that moment. Please understand, I don't expect...

Double Review: Midgard Bestiary (Pathfinder RPG Edition) & Party of One: Alosar Emanl

A druid with the fire domain gets burning hands.

Pathfinder Review: Blood of Fiends

Solid review. I am still ambivalent about tieflings, but I might give the book a change to change my mind. They suffer, in part, from a lack of thematic balance in the game - there really is no "children of angels" player suitable race.

Review of Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Basic Game by Margaret Weis Productions

Thanks for the review, Neuroglyph! While I do think the lack of a classic point-buy system A LA Champions has thrown some people, the game does extensively cover how to create your own heroes, events, and scenes. In fact, together with the random datafile generator provided in the PDF or on the website, MHR has the same three options the original Marvel Super Heroes game did: premade hero...
