It looks like somebody has been reading my blog (or the same books I do!)
Decipher, who brought us the original Star Wars and Star Trek CCGs is back, and it looks like they're on the right track.
The game: Fight Klub
The idea: Everything is centered up online networking, including sales, keeping the focus on the relationship between the publisher and the fan. If the game is good, it might be the future of hobby gaming (sorry distributors and retailers!)
I...love...it. This is the sort of thing I've been hoping to see for years. A publisher is TRYING again. Good luck, Decipher.
Yes, I joined. Yes, I plan on buying this game (it's $30...how bad could it be?)
I hope you do too, if for no other reason but to see something different happen.
