Descent Online 27 Mar 2008 20:35 #4428

I had been following the news on this BattlePawn thing since the beginning...but when I failed to get involved at beta level I drifted away. Now it appears they are very close to done. Any news or views from anyone here about how it is?

Ok my F:AT reporters...can any of you ferret out what happened here?

Battlepawn has been developing Descent for online play for over a year...had in Beta testing...all seems set. As of Mid June I now have seen that they have called it all off! The website blames it on "creative differences with FFG"...which I seem to recall from the "There Will Be Games" epic as having much deeper overtones ;)

So anybody have the inside skinny? Was really hoping they pulled this off..I enjoy S/MBW mind you..but Descent would have rocked!! And add to this Talisman 4 getting booted off the CapCCom schedule and it appears Euros still hold sway in the online boardgame world.

Yeah, I'd heard that the Descent Online Battlepwn project had been nixed. I actually don't find it's cancellation as surprising as the fact that FFG EVER came them permission to do so. FFG really likes holding on to rights for their electronic/online versions of their games (of which there are none).

But Talisman got canned!? Man that's just lame. Just the xbox version or xbox and PC? By all accounts Blood Bowl is still on the way though! And that's what REALLY matters right?

I saw some previiews of that Bloodbowl 360 and it looks fucking awesome! I only wish it wasn't using LRB 5 rules (blech!). I don't own a 360- I swore off console many moons ago- but i might pick one up just to play Bloodbowl.
