Forgive the belated PAX content; several of us at Sprites and Dice had our lives catch fire in various ways in the last month. However, never let it be said that we let real life get in the way of gaming!
PAX East 2019
The eXceed Fighting System started back in 2016 with a simple, if rather weird concept: What if a two-player fighting game could be turned into a card game?
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: A single-player video game trying to capture the essence of a tabletop RPG by offering an open world, a variety of different ways to play, and a wide array of NPCs with their own lives and jobs.
Some of us play games to sit in our own comfortable, quiet space and shut the world out for a little while.
It’s a formula that’s been done many times, but thanks to a particular Darkest Dungeon, the game style has reappeared on the scene with a vengeance and new attitude.
