Bits of Interest

Some people would call this News I suppose.  For me, it really is just whatever grabs my fancy, and probably not the most timely of announcements.  So Bits of Interest it is 🙂

PAX Aus/PAX West 2020 Merch and Shelfie Stacker!

Shelfie Stacker Cover Art

Another Wednesday, another round-up on things I am looking forward to! Last week, the Kickstarter for a fun game idea called Shelfie Stacker got bumped for PAX 2020 news. Today, PAX merch is available to order. I didn’t want to push talking about Shelfie Stacker again, so today I talk about two things that are making me spend my money!

So. PAX Aus 2020 online anybody?

PAX Online

So, a very short one today. Wednesdays I talk about things I am looking forward to, usually games on Kickstarter. Yesterday, PAX Aus 2020 was officially postponed until 2021. But that doesn’t mean that I still can’t be looking forward to PAX! I wrote this thinking Tuesday was Wednesday and thought I would float a way of celebrating PAX online this year. Glad it was only Tuesday because PAX Online 2020 is real.

The PlayStation 5 Reveal Event Thoughts

PlayStation 5 Lineup

So the PlayStation 5 was revealed this morning (Australian time). I got out of bed early and enjoyed the reveal. There is a lot to be excited about, even if not a lot of concrete information came out.

But the information that was revealed is pretty impressive – and divisive. So as no one else on the internet has given their two cents on the topic, I thought today I would give my thoughts on the PlayStation 5 reveal.

Castle Panic Deluxe is live on Kickstarter!

Sorry, I am a little late today folks – I thought it was Tuesday! But today an old favourite of mine Castle Panic hit Kickstarter for a new Deluxe version! New plastic castle, mini’s for enemies and wooden tokens. You can even just upgrade your existing copy! Check out more on the site!

The Messenger sounds interesting, and Burnout coming to Switch

The Messenger Burnout Paradise

So the one Kickstarter project I was interested in this week, I can’t back. Delivery restrictions – they don’t send to Australia. But an old favourite is also coming to Switch this week. How to choose what to write about?

As the meme says – why not both? The Messenger looks like a brain busting puzzle time, and Burnout Paradise is coming to Switch for driving mayhem!

Infinity Gauntlet: A Love Letter Game is more than a re-theme!

Infinity Gauntlet Banner

Bringing out a game with multiple themes can be a mixed blessing. The same game over and over again makes people gloss over it, but Love Letter usually tries to add new twists to the game. Now Z-Man Games has announced Infinity Gauntlet, but I think it changes the game so much I don’t know if the ‘A Love Letter Game’ will help or hurt this release.
