Robotech The Roleplaying Game

Like many people my age, Robotech was one of my first exposures to anime. I have fond, yet vague, memories of Saturday morning space battles against the Zentraedi forces. It wasn’t until many years later that I found out there was more to it, and I still don’t know nearly as much as I wish I did or the time to put into it that I wish I could. When I first had the opportunity to write about Attack on the SDF-1 and Ace Pilot I was stoked. Even in the video that I shot about them, I excitedly mentioned that this RPG was coming down the pipes.

Robotech The Roleplaying Game is not the first RPG based on the franchise, but it does certainly have the potential to be the most successful. The titling is interesting, as the proper name is Robotech: The Macross Saga The Roleplaying Game...

Kickstarter/Indigogo of the Week: Ultimate Articulated Cardboard Comic Book Action Cut-Outs

Every now and then something new and exciting crosses my desk. With my recent review of Muffenman #1 came another really cool Kickstarter project that includes Muffenman and many –MANY– more great characters. The campaign for the Ultimate Articulated Cardboard Comic Book Action Cut-Outs is chalked full of some legendary indie comic characters, in a medium that you’ll likely not see anywhere else. As the title implies, these characters have been turned into fully articulated cardboard cutouts, mounted on magnetic backings. What that means is you can turn your refrigerator into an indie-hero battleground of epic proportions.

BESM 4th Edition

BESM stands for Big Eyes, Small Mouth, named after the art style common in anime and manga. The first edition of the game came out in the mid-90s, the project eventually landing in the lap of White Wolf, who recently licenced it back to Dyskami Publishing for this beautifully put together 4th Edition. We’ve reviewed Dyskami’s Sailor Moon Crystal games in the past, and several contributors to earlier BESM editions are back for this new edition. In short, there’s some great experience behind this game.

Interestingly, there are two parallel editions of BESM. The full 4th Edition rulebook we are looking at here, and a streamlined and stripped down version entitled BESM Naked. (Stripped down. Naked. Get it?) We’ll be looking at Naked in a few weeks, but for now, we’ll focus on the full version.

Muffenman #1

Creator and Writer: Anthony Moore
Artist: Jo Galicia
Cover Design: Gerald J. Jones
Cover Artists: Anthony Moore, Rudy Ao, Brian Payne

It’s one thing to find a comic you like, and you know you can walk into your friendly local comic shop and know when it will be there. When I was new in the hobby, living in a small town, the nearest comic shop was in the city. I was lucky to get there once a month, so opening the mail to find that month’s subscription had arrived was a mostly-unexpected treat. (Shipping to Canada sucked back then too, so I could only afford one, Count Duckula.)

So when I walked out to get my mail one day and found a nice solid cardboard envelope marked “Limitless Comics” I was stoked. It’s a different feeling than having Amazon show up on your doorstep...
