Star Wars PC Game Sale

Posted by Rampant Coyote on May 2, 2017

GOG.COM is running a sale on all Star Wars games in their library. IMO, the best games on the list are the Knights of the Old Republic RPGs, and the X-Wing / TIE Fighter series. I personally wasn’t a huge fan of X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter… it seemed to lose a lot in the effort […]

A Bundle of Books on Writing

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 26, 2017

Storybundle.com has a bunch o’ books about the craft and profession of writing. The only ones I’m familiar with are Dean Wesley Smith’s book and his video lecture series on the Lester Dent Master Plot Formula. I paid full price for the latter (about $50, IIRC), and thought it was very worth the money. So […]

D20 Traveller Bundle

Posted by Rampant Coyote on March 21, 2017

Okay, this is kinda cool. I liked the D20 version of Traveller (called Traveller20 or T20), though we only played once. I’ve been a fan of several versions of the game. The “Bundle of Trouble” has a bunch of PDFs of the T20 game available now for pretty cheap… cheaper than the original hardback core rules cost […]

Final Hours of the RetroEngine Sigma Crowdfunding Campaign

Posted by Rampant Coyote on January 9, 2017

The RetroEngine Sigma seems like it’s a stylish and easy way to obtain emulator console gaming. Since the best value I got out of the failed “microconsole” revolution was its value as an emulator platform, and putting together your own emulator out of a Raspberry PI is a non-trivial task, I get the appeal. If […]

Star Wars, Books, Torment, and Stuff

Posted by Rampant Coyote on December 16, 2016

I’m going to be minimizing my time online today because so many people went to see the new Star Wars Story film last night, Rogue One.  My tickets are for tonight. While we already know kinda-sorta how its supposed to end (right where A New Hope begins), and we don’t know any of the major […]

NaNo Writing Tools Book Bundle Deal Ending

Posted by Rampant Coyote on December 15, 2016

NaNoWriMo 2016 is over. I didn’t “win” but it was a pretty good kick in the pants for me. I’m still pushing onwards. The 2016 NaNoWriMo Writing Tools book bundle at StoryBundle.com is also coming to a close in about a week. To be perfectly honest, I’m not as keen on this year’s bundle than the […]

Rocksmith – Today’s the Day

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 22, 2016

I’ve been swamped by the day job worse than… well, pretty much ever, when I wasn’t traveling (traveling comes next week). So I’m sorry the blog has gotten a bit irregular of late. My word count that would otherwise go to the blog has been going into NaNoWriMo, and I’ve only managed to squeak out […]
