    Episode Thirty-four.... It's a Great time to be a Geek, or is it ?

    in Hobbies

    Okay, so let's face it.  Geekdom is at an all time high.  What used to be an incredibly small counter culture of renegade gamers with high IQ's and low public acceptance which rallied in basements and shared their dreams of conquest, power and legendary deeds, have now become a target marketshare for numerous corporations.  In less just about thirty years we have gone from lonely to legion!!!


    New conventions are appearing every year and most of the already established ones are expanding.  Geeks are pouring into every city in their cargo shorts, graphic Tee's, back packs and rule books in hand in record numbers.  Cosplayers are showing up in every possible persona from the Flintstones all the way to dead alaskan painter Bob Ross.  Everywhere you look, more and more Geeks are crawling from there preverbial holes and joining the world at large.  


    But at what cost?  We are actually becoming such a large group that we are beginning to splinter into sub groups again and those groups are at times finding it hard to accept and share the spot light.  Steampunkers, Tabletop War Gammers, Cardies, Boardies, Consolers, Cosplayers, RPG'ers, LARP'ers, MMO'ers, Trekkies, Jedi's, Vamps, Tramps and a 1000 others... when is to much to much and what does it mean to market a game or product to these numerous and varied groups.  Tonight on the Wolf's Den we look at the expanding world of Geek and how much further we think it can go before we see it shatter and splinter into seperate cons, gatherings and events.

    Episode 27 Malifaux...the next "Big Thing"...

    in Hobbies

    Ever sit there and wonder, "What will I play next?  What game is going to come along and inspire me to such heights, to such a frenzy that I will literally be compelled to run out and purchase every single bit of STUFF they have ever printed?"


    Well, unless you are the Lord of the Board and really collect such things, most of us have to pick and choose carefully before we invest in a new game, especially the mini gamers who know all too well the price the games have attached to them.  Well we believe that we have stumbled upon a potential winner.  Let's face it, Warhammer is outrageously expensive, Warmachine/Hordes is for the tournament players and seems to have a very small narative campaign format for its casual fans.  Infinity is nice but has a very different look to the mini's and Necromunda and Mordheim are playable but no longer even supported by their parent company.  


    Look no further, tonight we have with us Chris Weinstein who is going to take away all the hurt by sharing with us the secret world of Malifaux.  Chris will share with us the pros and con's of this innovative combat system, the quality of the casts and sculpts and even the trends in the player community of this growing skirmish game.  So stop on in, come on you know you want to and learn why Malifaux might just be exactly what you've been looking for all these years.
