Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5 is the last issue of this beautifully snarky mini-series from Dynamite. There’s a little bit of everything here. Ray guns, retaliation, retribution, resurrection, re-killing, redemption, and a bunch of weird creatures.

Actually, that’s all I’m going to give you. If you weren’t already convinced by my last four issues worth of reviews, giving you more details won’t change your mind now. In fact, you don’t even get another random clickbait link, so there. Ryan Browne and Pete Woods have kept me entertained for the last five months, I have no doubt they will do the same for you.

Last month I threatened to give this issue only a single star just for ending, but honestly I can’t give it less than the 4 out of 5 stars that it has been sitting at ...

Pre-production Game Review – Tiny Ninjas

Tiny Ninjas is a small fast game that fits in your pocket and plays anywhere. I had the chance to try out a pre-production version at FallCon 30.

Tiny Ninjas sprang from the desire to have a game that was fun for just two people and had lots of replayability. I’m going to go out on a limb and say they’re onto something here.

Each player draws five ninjas from the Dojo and attempts to triumph over their opponent by reducing their ten points to zero. Ninjas have different skills that influence your options. Some whittle away at your opponent, others have ‘Go big or go home.’ skills, and others give you options beyond simple attack or defence.

Defeated Ninjas go into the Pit on the other side of the box from the Dojo...

FallCon 30

FallCon’s 30th anniversary is also Geek-o-Rama’s 5th anniversary and G-o-R’s founder’s birthday, so it was a special weekend all around.

This year, FallCon was at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary, Alberta for the first time after outgrowing it’s former venue. Even so, the huge room was filled to capacity throughout the entire event.

Imagine a shelf full of your favourite board or tabletop games and a pile you’ve always wanted to try out…now imagine dozens upon dozens of shelves filled with hundreds of games. That’s FallCon. A huge room full of every game you’ve ever wanted to play and plenty of people of all ages to play with.

The gaming area was filled to capacity the entire time I was there on all three days, and every event was packed...

Faith and the Future Force #3

Writer: Jody Houser
Artists: Diego Bernard, Juan Castro, Cary Nord, and Brian Theis
Colors: Ulises Arreola
Publisher: Valiant

I feel like I’m repeating myself at this point, which is actually appropriate since that’s exactly what this comic is doing.

So if you’ve read the previous two reviews/issues, you already know what’s going on; evil robot “unmaking” time, timewalker recruiting various superheroes, various superheroes keep dying, repeat but with more heroes this time.

Effectively all this does is create what, to someone who isn’t a fan of Valiant, is a random mess of colors and poorly written dialogue. I have no idea who these characters are, and introducing more and more after repeating the same scenes from the first issue isn’t helping...
