Gaming News from Neoscream: 11th December 2015

Welcome everybody to this week’s “Gaming News from Neoscream” post. This is my weekly gaming news post for miniature games, RPGs and some card games, as well as my miniatures painting and upcoming local events.



"Blog News"

I have decided to try doing posts via a browser on my phone that the beeping App as I trust the auto save on the site more than the save on the terrible app and it is a lot less hassle to save. Also I will join last Tuesday's "Neoscream's Life" post with next week’s one.



“Gaming News”

First off we have the Bushiroad news. With the WeißSchwarz side, today sees the release of the "Love Live! Volume 2" Booster set, the "Love Live! Volume 2" Master set and the "Love Live!" Trial Deck featuring "festival idol in school" all in English.
On the Cardfight Vanguard side, today sees the release of "G Clan Booster 2: Commander of the Incessant Waves" booster set. Also next Friday will see the release of the G Trial Deck 6 "Rallying Call of the Interspectral Dragon" and G Trial Deck 7 "Illusionist of the Crescent Moon" in English and "Fighter's Collection 2015 Winter" booster set in Japan.

Now for the Cool Mini or Not news. The Arcadia Quest Inferno KickStarter has ended making $1,710,713 (over double what the original did) with 9,991 backers. Making it at a rough glance the 14th biggest non computer based gaming KickStarter. Since the last post they have managed to unlock: The KickStarter exclusive heroes of Raven, Sir Bryce, Maga, Papa Ruk, Wanda and Rivet; the expansion Fire Dragon with the KickStarter exclusive hero Hoshi as an add-on; the KickStarter exclusive pets Biru, Scrag and Owlbunny; a Game Tile, tokens, cards and a box to finish off the KickStarter exclusive Poison Dragon expansion; Hell of a Box to store all the non boxed goods from the Pledge level; the KickStarter exclusive hero and monster versions of Hellen.

Now for the Mechabrick news. Their new Indiegogo campaign is still going. This has unlocked so far: Nothing.
The stretch goals that are still going as I post this are: A Shield of Fire will be added to all XL pledge levels at $4k; a Golden Sword will be added to all XL pledge levels at $6k; a Neon Black Printed Shield will be added to all pledge levels at an revealed amount; and a Neon Black Print Mech will be added to all XL pledge levels at an revealed amount.

Next is the Ninja Division news. Ninja All-Stars is now on the boats to the fulfilment centres.

Now for the Modiphius news. With the Infinity RPG, the three shipping waves will be:
  • Wave 1 - Core book, Collector's Edition, Player's Guide, Bonus 40 Page Adventure, Adventures in the Human Sphere campaign, dice, miniatures, posters, fabric maps, tokens and character sheets.
  • Wave 2 - All the Faction supplements, Shadow Affairs, Paradiso Planet Book, Gamesmaster's Guide, GM Screen and Card Decks.
  • Wave 3 - Remaining Books.

Next is the the Shadow of Brimstone news. Due to delay on major bits, wave 1.5 has been push back to January 2016.

Now for the Dragon Tides news. There has been delays, however the fulfilment centres have received the main game and the Fairy Tale stuff. Shipping should hopefully start soon, when the extra bits arrive.

Next is the Battle System news. The Pledge Manager for their Urban Apocalypse Terrain KickStarter is now up.

Lastly there is the Zero Agents news. They have been on silent break due to legal problems. In short some tried to sue them for copyright infringement. Luckily it failed and they are back to working on the game.
