    What is the least playable RPG?

    HYBRID usually gets left out of these kinds of comparisons (including the 'worst RPG ever' type ones) because it kinda seems unfair to dump on an author who, by most accounts, had a severe untreated mental illness.

    Mordhau caters to the toxic.

    There's also at least one (possibly apocryphal) report of a Japanese noblewoman doing this, flashing included, in response to a demand to surrender or her captured adult son would be executed.

    [Let's Read] D&D 3.5 Monster Manual III

    I have to admit, upon seeing the picture I just assumed they were some sort of pseudo-Illithid. What we actually got is better. Sometimes weird for the sake of weird works, at least when it's attached to a passable set of mechanics. Also I'm totally stealing this thing as a one-bug nightclub...

    Looking Back at D&D 3.0 Core

    In fairness, the better state of class splatbooks in 3.5 owes a lot to the successes and failures of the 3.0 ones. Though I tend to think 3.5 has the edge as far as producing a good game goes if you're comparing the full lines. 3.0/.5/PF largely share the same overall issues but the breadth of...

    RPGnet's Fighter's Group: Waku Waku 7

    It's pretty rough. There's some interesting bits to it (it plays kind of like a hybrid of your typical SNK fighter and a one-v-one version of Final Fight/Streets of Rage) but the execution really isn't there. Unless it's dirt cheap or you can forgive a lot for that idea I'd pass. On the other...

    Looking Back at D&D 3.0 Core

    Because people want some system for languages, but they primarily want that system to do the little it's asked of it and then get out of the way because it isn't the focus and hinging entire encounters on "Who remembered to buy max ranks in X?" isn't a whole lot of fun. Doubly so for a game...

    Free stuff you can watch on line legally?

    Dailymotion is pretty much entirely pirate material. Not big name pirate material, as that actually gets removed, but it's stocked by material from companies that are too small, uncaring, foreign or whatever to bother with the effort to get their shows pulled from a niche website that won't...

    [Wrestlepack] Discussion XI: Inevitable Overbooked Heel Turn

    They booked Moxley vs Janela and let them lay the match out . If they weren't intending that to go into deathmatch territory, they're the most out of touch bookers since Watts was brought into WCW.

    [Wrestlepack] Discussion XI: Inevitable Overbooked Heel Turn

    I believe it was mostly Jim and New Jack, probably with the odd bit of input from anyone who felt like pitching an idea. Not one of SMW's finest moments. There's a storyline you could use there, even one that does keep the Gangsta's as heels, but holy shit did they screw the pooch on every...

    [Wrestlepack] Discussion XI: Inevitable Overbooked Heel Turn

    One of the local indies (well, next state over) recently brought in Joey Ryan and Joey Janella to do a battle of the Joeys. At some point a photo of Jim Cornette got stapled to Joey Ryan. On his face, which admittedly is not where I was expecting it to be stuck. So close, and yet so far.

    [Let's Read] D&D 3.5 Monster Manual III

    Probably more accurate to call them the 4WD of mounts. Can go anywhere, only gets used to drop the spawn off at school.

    Hearthstone VI: I want to stab the darkness

    The thing is, Vanish isn't seeing a whole lot of play right now (and has not been a consistent Rogue staple) because it's not a board clear in the traditional sense. It's a stall card. Yeah, bouncing to their hand gets stuff off the board. Stuff that will immediately begin making its return...

    Hearthstone VI: I want to stab the darkness

    Malygos is likely to stick around. It's an iconic card and, generally, not actually all that powerful. When it has been broken it's been the result of cards that let you cheat the overall resource game and those tend to break games in conjunction with just about any curve topper (or not so curve...

    [Wrestlepack] Discussion XI: Inevitable Overbooked Heel Turn

    If they can make it work being a big question. Working a good two out of three falls match is a lot like working a good rounds match - there's a very distinct pace and build involved, it's not a skillset most guys have developed and the flow of it can clash with the egos involved (like the era...

    "We Say 'Fuck You, Pay Me'": A clear and comprehensive investigation of RPG industry pay rates.

    If you can't get them to honour the contract because they know any lawsuit over payment is going to be a giant white elephant, writing more lawsuits into the contract is not likely to help your situation. It only takes a couple hours of legal fees before you're in the hole on this kind of thing...

    "We Say 'Fuck You, Pay Me'": A clear and comprehensive investigation of RPG industry pay rates.

    One of the big problems being that a fair chunk of gig workers can't actually negotiate said terms. There's enough people desperate enough (or ignorant enough of their rights) that the companies can and do treat independent contractors like employees, minus any of the actual protections and...

    "We Say 'Fuck You, Pay Me'": A clear and comprehensive investigation of RPG industry pay rates.

    Podcasts are generally as heavily edited as any other non-live media. It's not uncommon for the bigger ones to have as many people working off the mic as on. Streams tend to be raw, but the major ones have a lot of time and money going into what they do and are subsequently much less 'raw' than...

    [Wrestlepack] Discussion XI: Inevitable Overbooked Heel Turn

    That's 99% of people who've heard of Bryan Alvarez. There's a whole lot more to know about his dirtsheet stuff. Which isn't really a knock on his work - he's competent but completely unremarkable as a worker (and hasn't done a whole lot, between injuries and his actual jobs), whereas he's had...

    Ace Attorney Coming to Steam

    I think AAI2 is a lost cause regardless of how well the re-releases do. They've pretty aggressively neglected that one. They're in no hurry to deal with the Ryunosuke prequels either. PPvPW was never meant to get a non-Japanese release and kind of lucked into one (it's also a bit of an odd duck...

    More Veronica Mars? [ yes - announced 9/20]

    That might depend on your definition of 'too dark' if they're taking the existing non-show stuff as a more-or-less-canon baseline. It's very much a continuation of the show but the setting was quite adamant that Neptune has not exactly improved its reputation in the meantime and the storylines...
