  • Tabletop Afternoon 4.22.17 - Rick and Morty: Total Rickall

    I thought we'd never make it back, Morty. For a second there I thought we were gonna be splattered under the heel of a terrible god and be nothing but a shit-stain on the bottom of its foot. Oh wait, we're supposed to play a game this week aren't we? Alright well grab all your guns and make sure Beth is there. And that's how we ended up playing this game.

This, some new game debuts, and a listing of the upcoming game releases rounds-out this podcast like it's a real boy.

  • IGC Podcast #87 - Foolish April

    We have now arrived in April. As some game companies try to trick us into thinking they're funny for others it's business as usual. MadCatz declares bankruptcy, Valve is calling in the big guns for some advice, and Blizzard is remastering StarCraft. A ton of games were announced and we'll tell you about them too. We've got that, the usual release schedule round-up and an update on our fantasy draft now that Mass Effect: Andromeda is out. Did I mention we talk about that for half an hour? Well, now I did. Listen to the show for all the info you could ever want. Sort of.

  • Operation Paladin Is a Go

    Ballistic Impact's first official operation has begun and takes us to Chernarus. A former Soviet Bloc state with a recent history plagued by the communist insurgency of the "Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star", known as the Chedakis by the locals. This problem became compounded when the Chedaki insurgents seized a small Chernarussian base, gaining access to heavy military equipment and becoming much more than a simple thorn in the Chernarussian Governments side. The Russian government, seeing this as potential weakness and being emboldened by their seizure of Crimea and unchallenged interventions in the middle east, took this opportunity to launch a lightning quick offensive. Having crushed the Chernarussian military their more advanced equipment, the Russian military occupied the nation and seemingly began preparations for proceeding further into Europe, forcing a response from NATO.

Hi there,
I'm a community manager for the game Abatron, which is an RTS/FPS hybrid and we're currently looking for playtesters. I was recently made aware of this community through twitter and thought you all might be interested in participating.



A quick summary of Abatron is that you are in charge of your base and creating buildings and units to defend against enemies. However, at any time you can jump into any unit you have and start playing in FPS mode. Each unit has their own set of abilities that can be leveled up and unlocked. Currently it is only a multiplayer game and can have up to 6 players at a time.





You can check out more on our website: http://www.abatrongame.com


Hopefully that gives you a bit of an idea about the game and how it's played. If it look interesting to you, we'd love to have you for the Alpha testing coming up. The process for participating looks like this:

Subscribe to our monthly Newsletter: http://www.abatrongame.com/newsletter
Subscribers will be sent a survey to determine the best play times at the end of this month
Once a schedule is created, all survey participants will be notified
Scheduled play times are not required, however it will help guarantee that more players will be online.

And that's it! I know some of you probably stream or make videos, so you probably want to know if you can create content while playing. THE ANSWER IS YES! There will be no NDA during the playtest, so you can feel free to stream, make videos, etc.


Thanks so much to all who sign up, and please let me know if you have any questions.
