FFG STAR WARS GAMES - GEN CON 2014 REPORT: SATURDAY

Fantasy Flight Games charges into the weekend still going at warp speed, and we love them for it!


SATURDAY


The Scum and Villainy Faction was fully previewed. I absolutely love it too! The team at Fantasy Flight Games have shown us an unprecedented level of commitment to their STAR WARS Products, which anyone who claims to love Star Wars should more than appreciate!


The SWAG provided in the Most Wanted Expansion is almost literally saying; "This is a Complete Faction from day one!" You can see that S&V has been given the same quality treatment that all FFG products enjoy. There are all kinds of goodies here including a new version of Boba Fett with Greedo, Jawas, alternate HWK's, more Droids, and... and... and!!!


STAR WARS ARMADA Demos continue over the weekend of course, and after further investigation into the new game I have fallen in completely in love with it. I am certainly going to buy into the complete product range.


A lot of FFG STAR WARS Gamers wanted a tabletop miniatures game in the vain of older war-games. Now that Gen Con has conclude we know that STAR WARS ARMADA, with the STAR WARS IMPERIAL ASSAULT answers that desire for most of us. I do not see Fantasy Flight Games ever making a ground based 40K-like version of X-WING. They are partnered with games workshop and that company would not appreciate direct competition from FFG.


STAR WARS IMPERIAL ASSAULT looks like a solid game. I am not surprised that FFG made it happen. I mean come on, you can essentially RPG Star Wars and that rings true to people like myself who did play the classic West End Games RPG back in the day. I am happy to see something that has that ring of past echos and yet is entirely modern in the design and play. Very nice work FFG... very nice indeed!


Zach and Stephen have a nice chat with the vice President of Fantasy Flight Games; Mr. Steve Horvath. This is a cool fellow indeed. They talked about all of the new Star Wars products and it was interesting to say the least.


More to come...
