Call of Cthulhu 7th edition Kickstarter! All hail Yog-Sothoth!!


I'm not sure how I missed this but one of my favorite games of all time, Call of Cthulhu is up on kickstarter with a brand new edition and they are knocking it out of the park with pledges.  To date they have raised $250,000 with an original goal of $40,000.  At the $70 pledge level you get softcovers of both the new 7th edition core book as well as the investigators guide.  There are a ton of stretch goals, its worth a look if you have any interest in CoC.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the differences between 6th edition and this new version.  I need to stay away from Kickstarter, its killing my wallet!

Entertainment Roundup

My wife and I went and saw the new Star Trek movie, Into Darkness, last weekend and both really enjoyed it.  J.J. Abrams is doing a great job with the reboot, it still feels like Star Trek but has a breath of fresh air blown into the series.  I am looking forward to the next movie!

The new Hobbit trailer dropped today and it looks awesome!  Wood elves, Dwarves in barrels, Lake Town and finally a glimpse of Smaug.  Check it out here:  

It was brought to my attention that there are new Mad Max movies in production, I had no idea!  They are called Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa.  Both star Tom Hardy as the main character Max and Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa.  I am really excited for these, no trailer as of yet but apparently filming is completed with the exception of some pickups.  The first is slated to be released in 2013 around Christmas.  I think Tom Hardy is a good choice for Max, he has the tough guy look but hes not over the top.  Mel Gibson is apparently making an appearance as "The Drifter" and the original director of the first three movies, George Miller is back in charge for the next two.  That gives me some hope that they may turn out well!  Keep your fingers crossed!

Tom Hardy

And last but not least here is the Old Spock vs New Spock Audi commercial.  Leonard Nimoy cussing and singing the Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.  Funny stuff, enjoy!
