Gaming News from Neoscream: 4th 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.



“Gaming News”

First off we have the Bushiroad news. With Weiß Schwarz, last week saw the release of the Sword Art Online 2 Volume 2 booster set in English.
With Cardfight Vanguard, last  the release of G Booster Set 7 "Glorious Bravery of Radiant Sword" in Japanese.

Next is the HeroClix news. The last two weeks we got previews of: Another Iron Man, another Captain America, Atlas, Goliath, Coldblood, Bullseye and Taskmater from Marvel Civil War (not to be confused with Marvel Captain America Civil War).

Now for the Cryptozoic news. The Humanbusters expansion from the Ghostbusters The Board Game 2 KickStarter now includes rules for player verses player rules.

Next is the Steamforged Games LTD news. A survey has been sent to all backers of the Dark Souls KickStarter. Please note that this in NOT a pledge manager.

Now for the Cool Mini or Not news. The pledge manager for Rail Raiders Infinite is finally up on their web store.

Lastly I would like to talk a little about a new mobile game I just pick up. Yes I now I rare talk about non miniature gaming here. A couple a day ago SpaceApe release to the general public (it had been around a in beta form in before hand) a new mobile game that hit both the Android and Apple stores. It was based on something from my childhood. The game was "Transformers: Earth Wars". It is a G1 base building game. Many of the character designs are based on the "Combiner Wars" designs from the toys and IDW comics. If you like Transformers I would HIGHLY recommend it. I am playing as Autobot (I know shame on me), under the username of Ninjam Prime.
