Post Kotei Gaming. LCG?
Kotei season has come and gone locally. As a result of the extensive playtest. I would say that L5R burnout is in season. Everyone has left their L5R decks at home and now are waiting for the preview for Coils to start.
So what do everyone play these days?
Some have returned to magic. Ravnica is rather exciting these days and from what we’ve seen of Dragon Maze spoilers, this block is shaping up cards that people want to collect mainly due to EDH as they good cards for that format and standard gaming in general. Some of the cards are just too good to be true and probably is. I’m stepping away from this one though. I can see massive cash outflows trying to get certain rares/mythics…
Other than that, LCG is in the line. Some are playing star wars lcg from FFG. Not a bad game mind you, but still too little expansion, so card pool restriction does hurt deck building a bit. The high point of the game is the movie license. I mean, Han Solo blaster mode shot down Super star destroyer? Vader force chokes kills all? Wow. Yes please. 🙂
LCG Android: Netrunner has interesting promise. Mechanic-wise, it’s better than Star Wars LCG but due to not having much richer background of information on the story, most adopted a wait and see and for the community to grow enough to support the game.
As for me? I’m taking a bit of sabbatical from gaming weekends, but still keeping track of the latest trends in ccg/lcg (MTG/L5R/SW LCG/ANR LCG) and the like. In the meantime, time to finish that console gaming backlog…. Ni No Kuni…. Fire Emblem Awakening and the latest… Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate…. urghhh..
