As the owner of a SNES Classic Mini, I really shouldn’t judge, but I haven’t got the faintest idea who the PC Classic is for. It’s a miniature console, like the SNES, Playstation and Mega Drive Classics, but it plays DOS games from the ‘80s and ‘90s. You know, like the PC you already own. Unit-e is looking to crowdfund the beige box, with a campaign expected to kick off in late November/early December.

Still, I have no regrets about buying the SNES Classic Mini. I flipping love the console, from its design to the game library, and it’s just nice to have around. It’s a miniature piece of gaming history. The PC Classic doesn’t have the same kind of … [Read more...] about The PC Classic is a tiny console for DOS games

But after spending a few days with the latest version, titled simply X-Wing Second Edition, I’m convinced that this is the best iteration of the classic tabletop game yet. It’s all thanks to a revamped turn structure. In X-Wing, players maneuver tiny, pre-painted starfighters across the tabletop, trying to blow each other to smithereens. The game uses curved rulers of various lengths to represent the different turns and stunts that a pilot can pull off, while stats and equipment are tracked with cards and tokens. Combat plays out with the help of a few custom-made dice. But over the years, and as more and more new ships were added to the game, the original X-Wing became severely bloated. Nearly everything that made the newest ships fun to play existed as an aside to the basic structure of the game.
