Once again, it is time for the Weekend Briefing. It’s been an odd week here at the Gaming Security Agency. Writers are off at GenCon, internet connection issues have plagued two of the remaining contributors and a big announcement took up most of our remaining time. Even so, there has been much to see and read on the GSA.
We’ll get the two big chunks out of the way right off the bat.
Fantasy Flight Games made the announcement about Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, the newest version of Star Wars RPG glory. We scrounged up all the information we could find on day one and put it together for you. Then we followed that up late last night with the first Live Play Demo direct from the floor of GenCon with our own GMs, Chris and Brev as well as a guest appearance from d20radio’s own Frobiwan. The session was run by Lead Game Designer Jay Little so we can be fairly certain the game was run properly. There is a link to listen to the hour long demo in the article.
Earlier in the week, Ben and Nateal Erickson introduced you to their joint, on going project that will begin in September and involve you, the reader, in determining what direction it takes, T. J. Hafer gave you 500 words to help dispel ignorance about Role Playing and Nick Watanabe throws in the towel on a bad gaming experience before it even gets rolling.
The Numerology series continued with a discussion of Chance vs. Probability from Vladimir DeRosa and we begin discussing our writer’s personal backstories with T. J. ‘s installment of How I got into Gaming.
Reviews, you say? Yes, we have some reviews. Ben Erickson returns to talk about Indie Game Project Houses of the Blooded, Nick chimes in on the Best Damn Game he’s ever played, along with part 3 of Golden Oldies.
Last, but certainly not least, Nick comes back with another installment of Tales of a Married Gamer all about sharing. Sort of. And Jonathan Stevens hands out yet another emergency PC in Heroes on Demand, just in time for second breakfast.
Thanks to all our contributing writers this week and especially to all our readers.
