She'd read in the papers about the recent...

Kate Winthrop pulled the collar of her long coat tight against her neck to ward o the creeping chill of a damp autumn night. With a squeal of tires, a long black car raced by, pursued closely by a police wagon. Kate pressed herself up against the iron railing of the bridge over the Miskatonic to keep clear of the chaos.

Wasn't expecting this. I got the impression third edition was dead-on-arrival.

Didn't Nikki leave FFG? Curious as to what that'll do to the expansion pipeline for this one.

Followup, who here has played Arkham 3rd?

I enjoyed it more than most here, but do find it kind of redundant if you already have an Arkham Files game.

I haven't tried 3rd edition, but I was under the impression that this version relies heavily on scenarios. Seems like just two new scenarios would be stingy.

I was somewhat surprised when the FjordLameGreek crowd didn't rush to 100% embrace this version, as they are typically enraptured with anything that FFG shats out, especially Cthulhu stuff. I've always said that CMON eventually managed to out-FFG FFG, and now FFG are left in this odd twilight world, where they are too corporate for the Kool Kidz, but too IP-focused for the casuals.

Re: Nikki
She didn't just leave, she was "proud to announce" she was leaving FFG. I remember an interview from last year where she indicated the only FFG game she ever played before joining FFG was Arkham Horror, and she didn't even like the game.

Seems like FFG might have finally hit Arkham saturation. Took longer than I'd have thought, but when you have multiple adventure games, a dice game, and an LCG all being supported simultaneously a weird hybrid isn't what people go for I guess.

Didn't know that about Valens. Guess it was only going to last so long if she openly didn't like one of their best (in terms of critical and financial success) games.

The proud to announce thing wouldn't mean anything to me, that's a pretty common language around leaving for another opportunity.

The never played their games and didn't like the original reminds me of Verhoeven's comments around making Starship Troopers.

I can't believe that I'm not buying this. I don't think there is an Arkham game or expansion that we don't own. But Third Edition just just felt so dry and procedural. No fun, no excitement. No interest in playing it again.
