Pre-Order Critique - Tripods and Triplanes
Okay, so we're back to it with the old pre-order critique figure, my oft-forgotten attempt to make a post from nothing by posting pictures of stuff that hasn't even come out yet, then adding my irrelevant thoughts as to whether I think it will be cool or not.
And folks, for the first time in recent blog history, I'm critiquing something I'm actually excited about. Now what Ares games seems to be doing here, is taking their already successful Wings of Glory World War I fighter duel game, and cramming War of the Worlds style alien fighting machines right into it. Makes the term 'World War' a little more poignant, right?
This is the kind of off the wall thinking I really enjoy from game designers, and I hope it pays off for them. This could potentially let gamers who have already bought into this system really expand the scope and possibilities of their games, without having to learn a whole new system or make a new, expensive buy in.
I wholeheartedly approve!
