    A Look at: Talesweaver

    MMORPGs have become widely popular both in a casual and competitive circles and there are always new and interesting ones being developed and released. A new MMO being published by game&game (http://www.gamengame.com), Talesweaver, created by the Korean Softmax, is poised to become a hit with MMO fans. The game aims to combine everything that RPG fans love into a unique online experience. Talesweaver focuses more on the combined efforts of players to move the story and the game forward.

    Atari to Release Dungeons & Dragons for Consoles

    The Dungeons & Dragons franchise has largely skipped the next generation consoles up to now. The last true D&D console game was Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun on the Sega CD back in 1992 which was a memorable game in the true spirit of a dungeon crawler, even with the limited graphics of the times. Atari has recently announced that there will be a new game Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale, which will be downloadable, and coming for not only PC but also for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3. The cause for celebration will not occur until next year of course when it is set for release in spring 2011. Daggerdale will be an action role-playing game.

    Play Sheriff or Outlaw in Bang!

    This holiday I made it a point to try out board games that are new to me. While some can be varying levels of difficulty and fun, I am on the look out for the best to showcase to you! Bang! is a card game by designer Emiliano Sciarra. It came out in 2002 and is still sold at local game stores as well as Amazon.com. Bang! supports 4-7 players and we played with 6. “The Outlaws hunt the Sheriff. The Sheriff hunts the Outlaws. The Renegade plots secretly, ready to take one side or the other. Bullets fly. Who among the gunmen is a Deputy, ready to sacrifice himself for the Sheriff? And who is a merciless Outlaw, willing to kill him? If you want to find out, just draw (your cards)!” (From back of box) This card game takes you back to a time where the Sheriff had
