Rarities Make No Sense

SADKIDHave you ever opened up a pack of cards, trying to get something that is common or uncommon, but never get it? Instead, you get a really rare card that you already had. The Pokemon TCG is of no exception. For me and some of the FBG staff, we’ve tried many times to find just one card in one of the worst packs in the series. This card is not rare at all, and as a matter of fact is uncommon as well as a major pain in the ass to get. The card that I’m talking about is none other then “Pokemon Catcher.”95-pokemon-catcherThis godforsaken card is, in my opinion, one of the hardest ones to get. I’ve opened up many, and I mean many, “Emerging Powers” packs and probably received one or two. I’ve pulled more full art Pokemon than I did those stupid trainers. But don’t get me wrong! This card is one of the best in a persons deck, as it can make or break the battle, or even clinch the victory. I know that you can buy it at online stores, like Amazon, but the minimum going price for this card is $15 and up. If any of you guys have any “Pokemon Catcher” cards that you’re willing to trade, you could meet us at one of our events. We would be more than happy to make some deals. Email me at patrick@fanboygaming.com and tell us what you want. Please be reasonable and leave a comment!

Nordic Games: Deadfall Adventures

logonguncNordic Games and The Farm 51 announce Deadfall Adventures – a thrilling and action-packed adventure which seamlessly combines the first person shooter experience with puzzle-solving and exploration, taking players across the globe in Nordic Games’ most ambitious game to date.

The year is 1938. James Lee Quatermain is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn’t one of them. Quatermain isn’t all too keen on escorting Jennifer Goodwin, a US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple complex in order to retrieve an ancient artifact – The Heart of Atlantis. Neither does he believe in the reputed invigorating qualities of this artifact, nor does he care that a division of the Ahnenerbe, the National Socialist department specialized in the occult, is after The Heart as well.

RUMOR ALERT: EA has ceased development on Dead Space 4 and effectively axed the series following lower than anticipated sales of Dead Space 3

A source familiar with the unannounced project told VideoGamer that Dead Space 4 had been in pre-production at Visceral Games, with a small team at Visceral Montreal allegedly tasked with developing prototypes and mock-ups for the title, and collaborating on ideas for the game’s narrative.

However, the project was cancelled after Dead Space 3 failed to meet its sales targets, evidence claims that EA executives visited Visceral Montreal last month to possibly inform staff that the project had been terminated and announce details of the company’s restructuring.

Tomb Raider Movie Reboot!

1362489720-lara

Crystal Dynamics is working closely with GK Films to develop the reboot for Tomb Raider. What makes this interesting is that Gamemakers typically just license off the film rights to a title and hope for something good at the box office, but this is a different case because Crystal Dynamics will be contributing to the development of this movie.

“They are working from this new take that we’ve given them,” Darrell Gallagher, boss of Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics said of GK Films. “It’s a good partnership. We’re seeing the challenges through the same lens.”
