Vampire: The Masquerade—Coteries of New York is the latest undead game to be greenlit by Paradox. It's a bloodthirsty narrative romp in the World of Darkness but is otherwise separate from Bloodlines 2. It's based on the 5th Edition of the tabletop game, but like Bloodlines it's mixing the format up a bit. It's an interactive story, says developer and publisher Draw Distance, with Telltale-style gut-punches.You'll be able to pick one of three newbie vampires, each representing one of the Camarilla clans, netting yourself different abilities, ethical leanings and dialogue options. Then you can start building your coterie—your undead gang—and work for either the traditionalist Camarilla or the rebellious Anarchs.There's an FAQ on the Steam page, though developer Draw Distance is keeping a lot of the specifics under wraps, including what clans will be available at launch. While the first Bloodlines made you play without a party of pals, vampires are a social bunch. … [Read more...] about Vampire: The Masquerade—Coteries of New York announced

The King Kong Monster Pack is playable with both King of New York and King of Tokyo but does require one of them to play. Check out our King of New York review here, and check back next month for our updated King of Tokyo review. The monster pack contains the King Kong monster board and figure, and also the evolution cards for both King of New York and King of Tokyo. One of the evolution cards, which is extremely thematic, is “It was beauty who killed the beast,” which brings into play a double sided card that gives King Kong an extra dice roll each turn if he has the card. However, if King Kong is dealt damage, the card is flipped over and given to the player who damaged him, and is only returned when King Kong damages that player in return. While this doesn’t have a huge affect on the game, it is very in-keeping with Kong and adds a lot of fun into the game. 3 of the 8 available evolution cards for King Kong. The white bordered cards are for King of Tokyo, the black … [Read more...] about King Kong Monster Pack Review – King of New York / King of Tokyo Expansion
