Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 6-APR-2012

Welcome to another installment of weekly link love here at Game Knight Reviews. I managed to go a little overboard collecting links this week since my 5/week posting schedule has gone awry in an attempt to avoid burning out. For the indefinite future I’m going to commit to 3/week (1 review, 1 opinion piece, and 1 Friday Knight News collection) plus the guest posts from Robert Oglodzinski and Creighton Broadhurst as they are available. I may add the occasional extra review to the mix and an occasional interview, but I don’t want to commit to 5/week and end
up doing 0/week, which doesn’t help anybody at all.

This has been building for a bit and I decided it was time to do something about it by reducing the schedule slightly. The upshot is I’ll have more time for doing a better job reviewing materials and not feeling rushed. That said, I’m hoping to develop more collaborations with gamers and bloggers… Andrew Armstrong, one of the folks who did a guest post early in March 2012, is considering doing more articles and I already have Robert and Creighton offering regular content. I’d be happy to collaborate with anyone else interested in doing so about gaming – perhaps someone passionate about board games or collectible card games? Any takers?

Beyond that, I did post a couple of articles this week (a review of Hand Drawn Cities: Volume 1 from Torn World and a wandering opinion piece about RPG pricing from the Gassy Gnoll inspired by a conversation around it), and this weekend we have a post from Robert on “Sacrifice in RPGs” and more in Creighton’s series on tabletop roleplaying campaigns.

And this weekend starts with gaming tonight (new campaign using the Zeitgeist setting for 4E with me playing a Fighter for the first time in decades!), so I say that Easter weekend is kicking off on the right foot!

What are your plans for the weekend?

On that note, let’s dive into the week’s content!!

Food for Thought

Games and Gaming

Publisher News



That’s it for this week on the news front. If you want a bit more, check out the Weekly Roundup at Roving Band of Misfits, the Weekly Assembly from Gamer Assembly, and Chris Hackler’s “What’s Up With D&D?” at ENWorld. There’s definitely plenty of news go go around!

I know the Gamer Assembly guys are all out at PAX East this weekend, so best of luck to them on their Friday panel and I hope they enjoy the rest of the show. I’m certainly jealous I’m not out there!

One last thing – congratulations to Mike Welham as Paizo’s RPG Superstar for 2012!!

I hope everybody has a great weekend!

As always, if you feel I missed something (and it would be impossible NOT to), drop me a quick note via the contact page or drop me an e-mail at news(at)gameknightreviews(dot)com and I’ll add it to the list for next week!
