Episode 18 : Barbarians and Badasses, Raging Roleplays and Roll Plays

Episode 18 : Barbarians and Badasses, Raging Roleplays and Roll Plays

Aaron, our friend and resident actual barbarian, joins us for an in-depth discussion into the differences between roleplay and roll play and how the two are often intrinsically related to one another. Everyone plays an active role even in their own life but luckily we have games where we can roll stats to suit the role we wish to play, whether it’s stat build domination or putting the character in the character. Don’t let the big words and excellent punctuation fool you- this episode is filled with the chicanery and levels of goblin speak to which you are accustomed.

The Geeksterverse: Marvel’s Future Fight

The Geeksterverse: Marvel’s Future Fight

My latest portable gaming obsession? Marvel’s Future Fight. The story is that, in the future, Ultron has calculated a way to destroy the earth and has killed all of the heroes trying to stop him. Wolverine and Nick Fury had come to the present day to warn the heroes, and to offer help in some way from time to time. The beauty of this game is in it’s simplicity and how increasingly difficult it gets as you progress. You can team up to three heroes together, with a guide for which teams give you an extra boost in some way. Some classic combinations will give you a boost, like the Avengers (Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow), Heroes for Hire (Luke Cage and Iron Fist), or Heroes of Darkness (Ghost Rider, Blade, Punisher). They also give you boosts for logical teams like Martial Artists (Daredevil, Iron Fist, Elektra), Heavy Hitters (Hulk, Luke Cage, Kingpin), or Desperate Men and Lovers (Daredevil, Black Widow, Elektra).

The game gives you five teams to set and switch as you choose. You can purchase additional costumes for added oomf as well as jewels to upgrade your abilities. I laughed at some of the team-ups because they go so deep into Marvel history that if you wanna kick it old school you can and if you want to keep it current, you’re free to do that as well. I usually don’t get caught up too heavily in app games, but this one has stolen my heart. I love to play in the Marvel universe already, but now I get to team Agent Coulson and Steve Rogers, too… I am there! Be warned, it is easy to buy crystals to buy costumes, so proceed with caution!! If you’re a fan, let me know what you think… if you’re not, I’d like to hear why.
