Rocketmen: Battle of Titans Releases!

December 28, 2005 (SEATTLE) — WizKids Inc., creators of the runaway hit games Pirates of the Spanish Main and HeroClix, are proud to announce the release of Rocketmen: Battle of Titans, the first expansion for the Rocketmen Constructible Strategy Game (CSG!)

“Battle of Titans is a great expansion for the Rocketmen universe,” said Jordan Weisman, CEO of WizKids Inc. “It captures all the fun, old-fashioned flavor of the first, with enough drama and tongue-in-cheek fun to please all fans.” Rocketmen Battle of Titans moves the battle for the future to the middle of the solar system, introducing the grays of Io, a strong – and strong-armed – miner’s union; the winged Saturnians, a noble warrior race; and the humans of Ganymede, the birthplace of humanity and recent allies of the Legion of Terra.

Rocketmen: Battle of Titans is a stand-alone expansion; everything one person needs to fight for the future comes in a single game pack, including rules, dice, ships, crew, and an asteroid card. Also included is a scenario for fighting among the tentacles of the Jovian Fuel Jellies – massive floating creatures mined as the source of rocket fuel!

His name is Inuyasha, and he is sophomore Sarah Vennell's favorite anime character. "Anime" is Japan's signature style of animation, marked by its sharp color contrasts, dynamic characters and action-packed plots. FullStory

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Old school + new = Perfection

I always loved RPG games and seeing this game, which had the turn based battle system, I really had doubts about this one. So I bought it.....
The story is very original. A mysterious mage comes along and steals a family's secret treasure and that family and its kingdom is devoured in darkness and covered in thorns, followed along by transforming into hideous creatures. It sounds like a fairy tale but the game goes along with it very well and it never gets off track. To tell you the truth, DQ8 is like a fairy tale, since the world is so vivid and the story, and the charcaters are so lovable. FullStory
