Tonight’s the night! Last minute River Song predictions

Here’s a few ideas floating around my head as I foam with anticipation over tonight’s episode of Doctor Who ( 6:40, BBC1. Don’t miss it!). Much as I would love River Song to be the spirit of the TARDIS in human form , we’ve already seen that to awesome effect this season. I’m actually quite proud that …

What the world needs is a LEGO Doctor Who game

I want you to imagine, for a moment, that the nice people who made the frankly brilliant LEGO Star Wars & LEGO Batman games looked further afield for their inspiration, and their eyes turned to Doctor Who. Now, I know that Who games are traditionally terrible (and the latest Wii and DS games are way up there in awfulness), but I …

You only have yourself to blame

As reported over at 6d6Fireball (among other places), Adamant Entertainment have ended their $1.99 pricing model on all of their products and returned to regular pricing, citing that it isn’t sustainable for their business. This is sad news indeed. What Adamant Entertainment were doing was spear-heading the transition of the PDF RPG market from being one which mimics the print market…

Fortune Cards, and why WoTC should just man up

I’m seeing an awful lot of hate for stiff cardstock on the intertubes lately, and little of it makes sense. Ok, none of it makes sense. What, pray tell, has stiff cardstock ever done to you? I’m talking about the announcement that WoTC have released the D&D Fortune Cards and therefore wiped out humanity, begun World War IV and killed all the fluffy bunnies, all at the …

How to be a good game ambassador

Ah, this little hobby of ours. Add us all together and I daresay you’ll barely fill a handful of football stadiums, yet there’s still room enough for all of us. The young and old, the venerable old school gamers and the new kids keen to break past the limitations of console gaming. There’s room for immersive narritavists, hack’n’slashers, superheroes, wizards, rogues and more. Role-playing is…

R.I.P. DM Rewards program

It appears that the DM rewards program is also being largely eliminated. There is a lot of uproar about the fact that the latest D&D reward is a single card for the Ravenloft board game, which turns out just to be the promo card that was given out at GenCon. I’m not sure who thought a card for the Ravenloft board game was an appropriate…

River Song is…..

If you’ve not watched the mind blowingly amazing latest episode of Doctor Who, don’t worry. I’m not going to spoil it for you! (And if you have I don’t need to, right?). My theory about the identity of River Song still holds though, with a few tantalizing lines confirming it even more in my mind. River Song is……. The TARDIS. More accurately, she …

Who is River Song, part two

A while ago I posted my own theory about who the mysterious River Song is in the current run of Doctor Who. I was wrong. I was wrong in the same way that everyone who has suggested everyone from The Rani to Rose Tyler, from The Master in drag to The Doctor’s Mum to The Doctor’s Daughter is wrong. We are all wrong. I’m say that …
