EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER - The Roleplaying Game (Quickstart Edition)
Publisher: Sinister Beard Games

this is an fun quickstart. Look, i am the target audience for a PbtA game of Queer meatpunk-mecha nazi-bashing, so maybe it isnt for everyone. but maybe it should be. this is a game where you can get into a bar fight with creeps as a form of personal therapy, which is awesome (I think they used to do that all the time on Angel and Buffy, didnt they?) and it is a very pretty book too. I cant wait to back the full kickstarter. I do have some questions. like, is there a parking lot outside of Sigmund’s Bar with meat mechs in it, parked like cars? that needs an image. And who has mechs and who doesnt? and where the hell did all the fash come from? whatever. not everything needs an answer. either way, sign me up.

#iHunt: The RPG

This is a game of monster hunting in the cyberpunk dystopia of late stage capitalism. It is very pretty and at various points clever, funny, revealing, and distressing. The game uses a solid version of the fate core system, but I think this setting could be used pretty easily with whatever system you like for the monster hunting genre.

Game books set in the modern world, i think, tend to skip over discussing what life is like here and now. After all, we are supposed to know that for ourselves. But the modern world is changing faster and faster, and situations are not evenly distributed. This game essentially treats the present as an unfamiliar new setting and i think that approach is not just interesting, but it is a pretty good approach for a fun game.

i also like the tone of this game overall. it doesnt just feel like it is about the future we are living in, it feels like it is from there. It kind of reminds me of watching the X-Files way back. See, one day everyone in the real world got cell phones, and it changed all sorts of things about the way we lived. but the characters in TV dramas didnt have cell phones yet, for some reason. they were stuck in the past somehow. even when they got cell phones, they didnt really use them the way we were using them. When Mulder and Scully started to actually use their phones, there was a feeling that fiction was catching up with us at last. Reading iHunt gave me a similar feeling of recognition.

im looking forward to seeing this play out at my table. so more of this, please.

An evocative setting, great character ideas, and a very nice and well written version of the Fate Accelerated Rules. I love the stunts and i really like the focus on exploration and discovery. Im am looking forward to introducing my players to the Inverse World.

A good version of the Fate System. I especially appreciate the way the rules are illustrated with panels from the comic - pretty, but also really helpful.

This would be a fun game for any kind of "action science" adventure - perfect for anything along the lines of Star Trek, Fringe, or Dr Who.

Wild Talents 2nd Edition
Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
by Stacey M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/10/2010 13:50:20

I'm a big fan of Wild Talents, so you'll find only my happy bias in this review. Now the truth is that I tend to favor very rules-lite type games. I'm a Supercrew/Risus kind of gamer, mostly. But when I get an itch for a game with a little crunch, a game where the dice matter and where you can have fun really designing (or is that min-maxing?) a character, I turn to Wild Talents.

Wild Talents is a crazy, gritty supers game that kind of defines its own wonderful niche. Oh sure, you could use it play marvel/DC stuff, but honestly, Mutants & Masterminds and BASH do that pretty well already. But WT is amazing at creating "real worlds" where normal people are blessed - or cursed - with amazing powers. And the powers are the core of this game - you can design very strange and whacky powers, and I find that somehow, WT encourages me to make my characters an their abilities more interesting.

I'll give this 4/5 stars. It's not for everyone, but it's a thing of real beauty.

Wild Talents: The Kerberos Club
Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
by Stacey M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/10/2010 13:40:43

This super powered Victoriana is probably the best game I have bought in the last year. It's a wonderful example of what you can do with Wild Talents, and it's full of really good ideas, fascinating characters, useful plot points, and interesting new rules. I especially liked the new version of the skills rule. The game presents a wonderful setting, but I think it really shines when it gets to the various characters, heros and villains and others. Honestly, I think i got a lot better at building Wild Talents characters when I read this book. I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to use the setting, but I will certainly be using a lot of these characters and plot points in my campaigns.
