Sci-Fi TableTop Needs Your Support

If you are looking for a TableTop RPG with plenty of depth, customization, and some Sumerian mythology thrown in there, I think there might be a game you need to check out. Now I want to go ahead and apologize for not writing this up sooner as the KickStarter for ANKUR-Kingdom of the Gods is now past the halfway point, but this is still definitely something that might interest the TableTop aficionado out there. 

The game is based off a D12 variant, and features five different playable races, seven castes (or classes), two different worlds where there are plenty of potential twists and turns as well as ways to build up your character. This is the first time that the creator, Christopher Miller, has attempted a KickStarter, and this definitely is an ambitious one to start with.

Here's a look at the trailer, unfortunately there's not a whole lot of depth to it, but I can tell you that this is indeed a TableTop, pencil and paper, Sci-Fi, RPG.



New Deus Ex Trailer Will Have You Yearning for More

Now I know that I personally went on record with one of the latest Deus Exes and said that it was missing a little something, but I've got to be honest with you, this trailer definitely makes me want to go back into that universe and see what it's all about. 

I mean come on, this is so far up my alley it isn't funny. I'm a sucker for forced caste systems and unjust segregation, the power of the forgotten to rise up and prove people wrong, and let's be honest, this is EXACTLY that. I know that the trailer, for some, is a bit long, but COME ON this is good stuff. I want to know what the main character will do, what kind of control will they have over the outcome of all that happens in the world because of a virus?



Guard the Rails in This Train Strategy Game

It's time to take to the rails, your entire well-being in this strategy game depends on you protecting your train, protecting the rails that your train rides upon, upgrading your train, trading along the rails, and of course just for an added twist some historical events from American History. Does this sound like the kind of game that you might be interested in? Well you're in luck currently it is in Early Access over at Steam, and the game is called Bounty Train.

Now many of you might have noticed that this game has been out for a while in the Early Access realm, but a new update has been released and has added more twists to the game. So you might want to take a peek now that there's a little bit more risk in this high stakes world thanks in part to the addition of saloons.



Riot and ESPN Sitting Down to Talk eSports

Well I don't think anyone is going to be completely blown away by the fact that ESPN is trying to work out a deal to grab the biggest and baddest eSports broadcasting rights. Now it hasn't been completely confirmed but it would appear that this deal could be somewhere in the ballpark of $500 million dollars, and will start with the LCS (LoL Champship Series). The only question I really have is who will they get to commentate? The issue that might arise is that if you are going to have new names commentating while trying to paint the picture for the average audience, you could potentially piss off both sets of fans.

Now of course lets say that ESPN does gain the veteran commentators, will they become employees of ESPN and only be able to work on ESPN broadcasts, or will they more than likely be contracted out during the different series?

I, personally, am really excited to see the fact that there are tv channels that are trying to broaden their base by showing eSports, the only question I have is will the internet viewers come over to watch it? Actually the better question is that as a result of this deal, if it happens, will ESPN have exclusive rights to broadcast meaning that unless you have an ESPN3 login you are not going to be able to watch?
