|03:18 am - Crimson Peak, and Gaming News|
teaotter & I saw Crimson Peak this weekend (amberite was at AmberCon Northwest playing in some truly nifty sounding games), and it was very pretty and well made, but ultimately fairly devoid of substance, to the extent that Becca and my reaction to it was rather similar to our reaction to The Last Witch Hunter, it was more fun that good. To be fairly, Crimson Peak had considerably more visual interest, but that’s about all it had. So, if you want to watch pretty people and a truly amazing set and don’t mind that it doesn’t hold together or have all that much emotional impact, Crimson Peak is a good choice.
In more exciting news, the Mindjammer RPG Kickstarter started yesterday evening, and it funded within the first day. If it does moderately, but not exceptionally well, a Traveller Conversion should be included, one I’m hoping to be part of. Also, while I’m not a fan of the FATE system, I love seeing new Mindjammer setting material.
