We started our journey into the Bushido skirmish game by GCT Studios in June, when we reviewed the core rules, along with the Tengu Descension and the Ito Clan starter packs. This time we’re going to be looking at two of the core factions of the setting, through the Prefecture of Ryu and the Cult of Yurei starter packs. Prefecture of Ryu Prefecture of Ryu, Bushido starter pack. The Prefecture of Ryu are the leading clan in Bushido and the closest to historical accuracy in terms of warriors. The Prefecture are the honest representation of the feudal Japanese samurai going to war. The Prefecture of Ryu are the perfect starter clan for Bushido, in that they have solid stats with a great fighting ability and reasonable armour, their support abilities are straight-forward and what they lose in flair, they make up for by solidly storming forward to defeat their enemies. The starter pack is also extremely easy to put together. Four out of the five miniatures are one piece and just need … [Read more...] about Bushido – Prefecture of Ryu and Cult of Yurei Starter Pack Review

As part of our Start Collecting Infinity Series, we were kindly sent the brand new Nomad Sectorial Army Starter Pack for the Tunguska Jurisdictional Command, which, unless you’ve played Infinity for a while, might not make much sense to you, so we’ll break it down. Infinity has nine different available factions, which includes the non-aligned armies of mercenary companies and smaller factions that have broken away from the main forces. The different Sectorial Army lists are specific forces within the main factions. In the case of the Nomads, rather than living on a world, their forces live and travel on three enormous ships so that they can operate away from the A.I. control of the Human Sphere. If you pick Nomads as your faction of choice, you can chose your army from the standard Nomad list or one of the three sectorial army lists that represent each of their ships: the Corregidor, Bakunin or Tunguska. The Nomads and different Sectorial Army List options. When selecting a … [Read more...] about Start Collecting Infinity – Tunguska Jurisdictional Command Starter Pack
Bushido is a skirmish wargame by GCT Studios and is based in a fantasy feudal Japanese setting. Everything you need to play Bushido is available on GCT’s website including the rules, the stats cards for each character, even the counters are available to print and cut out and you can then use proxies for the miniatures to try the game out, but why would you want to? The Bushido miniatures are what first drew my eye to the game, and what miniatures they are. Across the range each different character sculpt captures detail, motion and personality and with a solid range of different factions, there’s enough appeal for nearly every wargamer. With Bushido being a skirmish wargame, forces tend to be comprised of between 4 to 8 miniatures, so the buy-in is reasonable as well. There isn’t a two-player starter pack for Bushido, but there are starter packs for each faction that has the solid core to build your force from, and with all the rules and stats available online, … [Read more...] about Bushido – Tengu Descension and Ito Clan Starter Packs Review

Next month, Grand Theft Auto 5 celebrates its third birthday on PC. And yet, despite its age, the open world crime simulator attracted record player numbers last year—driven by GTA Online's Doomsday Heist, which launched on December 12, 2017. Two days later, Rockstar rolled out the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack. Promising new players a leg up in Los Santos for £40/$40, I picked up the multiplayer welcome bundle and raised a single profile from level 16 to 85 in just short of five weeks. I maxed out my character's skill stats and earned a small fortune along the way, but sunk dozens of hours into the game during this time. Is the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack worth your money, then? Or would grinding free-of-charge, or picking up select Shark Cash Cards yield the same (or better) results? As you might expect, that depends on how you approach GTA Online. Let's take a closer look. What do you get? Rockstar bills the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack as … [Read more...] about Is GTA Online’s Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack worth $40?
