This week we finished up Massive Chalice. I had a great time with the game but it turns out it was a little shorter than I needed right now. The plan was to go from Massive Chalice to XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, but that doesn’t come out until the 29th.
Until then in the Mon/Wed/Fri slot, we are going to do something a little different. We are going to talk about Star Realms. Specifically, we are going to look at replays of Star Realms games and try to work out where the pivotal moments were. Where the initial mistakes were made that resulted in later victory or defeat. It is a little bit different from the other coverage of Star Realms on my channel and I hope people like it.
The Ransistance will return once War of the Chosen releases on the 29th of August. Firaxis has released a free demo that consists entirely of the photobooth, which means there is now a free tool anyone can use to create soldiers that can be imported into XCOM 2. This means I have revised the recruitment form. I have stripped out the overly long second page, if you want to be added you can either just specify a name and optionally a few other basic details. If you want a fully specified soldier, now you can create it yourself and then send me the file.
The current schedule is:
Saturday: Syfro Saturdays – Ranneko and Syfro Play Thimbleweed Park
Sundays: Curious Ranpedition
Monday, Wednesday: Ranneko Plays Massive Chalice
Tuesday and Thursday: Torment: Tides of Ranmenera
Friday: Let’s Dissect A Couple of Games of Star Realms
Syfro Saturdays – Ranneko and Syfro Play Thimbleweed Park
Of course the will can’t be anything simple. Who encrypts a will? Especially one that gets printed out? Why is it up to us to decrypt and is anyone in this town actually going to verify our decryption?
After literally getting stuck in the Arctic it is time to head to the desert. The only region I have found where water matters at all. Let’s hunt some game!
Ranneko Plays Massive Chalice
The time has come. 300 years have passed since we were created from the ashes of the great bloodlines, bound to the chalice and the long watch is finally over. Only one final task remains, one last fight against the cadence as their presence is required to catalyse the purge.
Torment: Tides of Ranmenera
We are picking up quests left and right down here in the Bloom. This week we encounter someone who is living in a stable time loop, talk to the previous memovira and learn more about the Great Chila, she who freed the slaves and was the very first memovira.
Let’s Dissect a Couple of Games of Star Realms
We kick off this new short series with a look at a game against fellow Ninja Blue Jarenth, and long time Ninja Regular Aulayan. Can we work out where things went right or wrong for each side?
