Miniature wargames are one of the more niche tabletop games, not only because they tend to be very technical, but because they can be very costly because of the figurines, terrain and other props needed to play.
Last month Capcom announced Resident Evil 6 and that it will hit the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on November 20, 2012. That’s a long way off, but at least we are getting some news about the game in the meantime.
While it’s never been recommended to chuck around your precious smartphone, it looks like the new TheO Foam ball will allow you to do so, at least in a reasonable manner. While you probably won’t want to play dodgeball with your iPhone inside of it, there are specially-designed games that you can play with it.
Being a tech geek, you’ll more often find me playing video games than board games, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy a good old game of Scrabble. Sure, you won’t be playing with someone across the globe, like with Words with Friends, but at least you get to play with some actual wooden tiles.
Nintendo may be against porting their games onto mobile devices, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t considering an app store of their own for their Wii U console. It would of course be similar to iTunes or the Android Market, but packed with stuff just for your console.
You get together with the boys on Wednesday nights and play a couple of hands of poker and lose all of your money. All in all, not that great of a time. (Except for the time when there were four Princess Leia cosplays who were invited. That - that was fun.) With the Star Wars Poker Set, you're guaranteed a good time, since anything that involves Star Wars memorabilia is automatically exciting.
How do you get more customers into your bar? Create some new fancy drinks? Maybe have a game night? Well, The Exhibit Bar in London went the video game route, by installing some new gaming urinals in the men’s bathroom.

If you are one of the masses that purchased Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on launch day, you helped contribute to a record breaking 24 hours. MW3 set an all time video game sales record with a gigantic launch day.
Last we heard, the Wii U was only going to have support for one lone tablet controller, which really didn’t make a lot of sense. I mean who wants to pass the controller around when playing two player games?
Sony Japan has announced software prices for their PlayStation Vita games. Japan will be getting the handheld on December 17 and that’s when Uncharted: Golden Abyss will cost you 5,980 Yen (~$77 USD), and games like , Hot Shots Golf and Katamari Damacy Novita will sell for 4,980 Yen (~$65 USD).
I think that one of the coolest games you can get for Android smartphones is Cut the Rope. It’s right up there with Angry Birds for my kids and me. Om Nom is the main character in the game and not too long ago he went plush with toys to go with the game.
The Fallout games are awesome and I have wasted many hours just exploring the wasteland and meeting it’s inhabitants. If you are also a Fallout fan, you are going to love this. Fallout Monopoly. Yes, it is an amazing meeting of video and board games.
