    Kentares reacted to kmanweiss in Profanity?   
    LOL, sorry, this is just funny to me.  You're ok with killing, beating, death, imagined bloodshed....but words are a problem?  To consider a game with death and killing family friendly is in and of itself laughable.  To each their own though.
    I doubt there will be a lick of profanity in the game.  Fallout games don't shy away from profanity, but they also don't shove it in your face constantly.  It's not a essential element of the IP to include any profanity into this sort of game.
    The one concern I'd have for you is flavor text may cross a line for you, but we haven't seen enough of the game to know if there will be much flavor text.  I could see a quest card having flavor text of the guy asking you to help him out along the lines of "Those raiders stole our ****, go pop a cap in their ***."  It wouldn't be anything that TV censors would have an issue with, but it might be too much for your home.  But I really doubt FFG would even go that far.
    I'd say stay tuned to future updates.  They'll likely be showing up example tiles, equipment, skills, missions, etc.  So you should be able to get a really good feel for the game long before you purchase it.

    I'd rather have two factions with well designed troops than that He-man garbage GW puts out.

    Kentares got a reaction from qwertyuiop in Galactic Empires - Racial Stance   
    IIRC the novelization of Empire Strikes Back (long time ago...) Piett's reaction was related to bounty hunting that he truly despised and was never meant as a racist comment relating to aliens (or droid) because in his mind waging war for profit instead of order and peace was the worst kind of being.

    They could always go with Rebel Battle Armor, they do seem to like grabbing things from SWGs so they could use this too if they needed to.

    Probably because Dave Filoni has worked a lot with Lucas and also is a big Star Wars fan who likes to try and give the fans what they want so long as it makes sense, hence why we got Thrawn.

    Basically everything from Star Wars Rebels. For a cartoon, it really feels like Star Wars, almost more than TFA.

    Am i the only person who loves its not compatible with IA. I found those models to be atrocious, but decent enough to at least be paint worthy. I love the larger scale and more detail it shows they aren't just re-using board game minis in a wargame.... that would not make this a wargame.

    Kentares reacted to ManateeX in IMPERIAL ASSAULT APP   
    During this year's in-flight report the presenter said something along the lines of "I've done some work with the digital department before, and it turns out software development is a lot more difficult that I thought it would be".  That may have been a surprise for him, but I can assure you that it's no surprise at all for those of us who work in software development . 
     
    This year is the first time we've actually had any sort of progress update on the app at all (we know it's in testing), so really it's impossible for us to say one way or the other whether the development process has been good/bad/easy/hard/fast/slow/whatever.

    It would be very cool if they made a Fallout themed boardgame using the World of Warcraft boardgame mechanics they made a couple of years ago...

    Rebellion is much more close to break Hasbro license than any other FFG published game. Having said that I start to doubt (since Rebellion) if theres really a line to be crossed around said license...

    I'll continue playing IA for campaign, because it's great for that.
    But it's lousy as a skirmish game (at least of the sort I want...it's a fun board game skirmish, but that's not my goal) and so I'll also be getting Legion.
    I see no overlap for what I want.

    What the heck are you talking about?  The games are completely different. If overlap entails surge icons, Star Wars universe, and depictions of bipedal humanoids.....sure. 
    There's plenty of room for both.

    Not quite. They even changed army rules (the famous codexes) from edition to edition so sometimes one needed to buy half the army again to make them official GW tournament friendly.

    Kentares reacted to Manchu in A question and a statement to FFG Legion apologists   
    First, there is the possible issue of a license dispute with Hasbro. If that rumor is true then FFG would be very foolish to risk losing certain legal rights to Legion because of a connection to Imperial Assault.
    But we can write that off as just a rumor, if you like.
    Second, compatibility of miniatures is not compatibility of games. It would be foolish for FFG to invest in a product line that customers did not need to buy in order to play. The compatibility of only one category of components, in this case the miniatures, is thus a red herring. People who own IA figures and want to use them in Legion would in any case have to obtain the rest of the components.
    Third, IA figures are of adequate quality for a board game. They are not of adequate quality for a miniatures game. I suspect that many existing miniatures gamers will find even Legion miniatures to be wanting, compared to recent Games Workshop models. But all the same, mixing board game and miniatures game components is not good for the brand of the miniatures game.
    I'm sure I could think of other reasons.

    Kentares reacted to Engine25 in A question and a statement to FFG Legion apologists   
    I'm hyped, but I'm not a hobbyist.  The game looks simple and fun, and I'm not into painting and scale is irrelevant to me.  I wouldn't have expected it to be compatible with IA even if the minis were the same size, because FFG has other products that could happen for and hasn't done it.
    I just want to play the game.  And I'll shamelessly put out my unpainted army across from your admittedly gorgeous and painstakingly painted figures, shake your hand, and we'll throwdown.  And you'll probably win, but at least I met you and we had a good time.  That's what really matters.
