Gaming News from Neoscream: 12th June 2016

Welcome to the “Gaming News from Neoscream” post and its my Birthday. 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"

First off sorry for the late post. Due to how busy next week will be, There will be NO "Gaming News from Neoscream" post next week and the "Neoscream's Life" will be late if it happens next week. This is due to getting readily for the Cardfight Vanguard Team Nationals.



“Gaming News”

First off we have the Bushiroad news. With Weiß Schwarz, next week will see the release of the Osomatsu's booster set in Japanese.
With Cardfight Vanguard, next week will see the release of G Booster Set 7 "Glorious Bravery of Radiant Sword" in English.

Next is the HeroClix news. The last two weeks we got previews of: Daredevil, Wasp and Vision from Marvel Civil War (not to be confused with Marvel Captain America Civil War).

Now for the Cool Mini or Not news. They have started a new KickStarter for a dungeon crawler in partnership with Guillotine Games, their partner behind the amazing Zombicide. The game is called Massive Darkness. A dungeon crawl board game with no game master. Explore the darkness for loot and experience, facing hordes of awesome miniatures. It has already passed the one million dollar mark. There is only one pledge level, Lightbringer, which comes with the base game, the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Cyclops Cliffbreaker and all Stretch Goals.
Since starting they have managed to unlock the following Stretch Goals: The game was funded; an Orc Flayer Boss; two Orc Flayer Minions; a KickStarter exclusive Dice Bag; a Dwarf Defender Boss; two Dwarf Defender Minions; the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Werewolf; a Goblin Archer Boss; four Goblin Archer Minions; the Kickstarter Exclusive Hero Myrian the Witch; an Orc Enforcer Boss; two Orc Enforcer Minions; the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Orgre Brute; a Goblin Warrior Boss; four Goblin Warrior Minions; the Roaming Monster Cockatrix; a Dwarf Warrior Boss; four Dwarf Warrior Minions; the Hero Zoe the Dwarf; the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Orgre Rockbreaker; the Hero Azrael the High Elf; the Noble Warrior Class Sheet Pad; the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Weretiger; the Hero Mila the Barbarian; the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Flesh Golem; six Oillars; the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Iron Golem; fifteen Level One Treasure Chests; the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Cun-Ha the Mummy; the Hero Ajax the Sorcerer; the Sorcerer Class Sheet Pad; the Enemy box expansion "Elementals"; and the Kickstarter Exclusive Roaming Monster Living Construct.
The Stretch Goals that are still going as I post this are: Six Troglodyte Brute Minions at $1,300k; and a Troglodyte Brute Boss at $1,340.
I have only backed this at $1 for the updates. I have too many games at the moment and I already have a dungeon crawler, Dungeon Saga.

Next is the Fragged Empire RPG: Protagonist Archive and Miniatures news. The Pledge manager will be up soon.

Now for the Mantic news. They are currently working on a second edition of DreadBall, that might hit KickStarter next month and be released next year. This will included re-balancing of the rule and of all six seasons of teams (twenty five teams) as well as some new teams. Some of the major changes they are saying may/will happen are changes on how Giants, Jacks and MVPs work and a making all the teams play more unique. The latter will be a hard one to get off do to the LARGE number of team, especially if they plan on adding more. Maybe merging some would be an idea as people do complain that there is TOO many teams.

Next is the Cryptozoic news. the Pledge Managers for the Ghostbusters the Boardgame II.

Now for some Privateer Press news. Their yearly event, Lock and Loaded, is currently happening in America. With it marks the pre-release of Mark three of Warmachine and Hordes and the release of War Room Two. War Room in the office army Builder app for Warmachine and Hordes and this new version is for Mark Three of the games. Anyone who brought digital decks from the original version gets 20% off the  mark three decks.
I have tried to rebuild my main Cygnar force for Mark Three. Sadly I have to drop the Squire due to two reason. The first being the fact that you can only have one attachment and the second this that the rest of the army hits the 50 points standard (the new 35 points of mark two).

Lastly some Transformers Earth Wars news. They have added both Headstrong and Slug to the game.
