Welcome to Game On 2016
The year is new and a whole lot of crazy things are already announced and getting ready to kick off. From brand new games on your favorite platforms, to new board games, card games, and comics it is set to be a whole year of non-stop fun. The goal here on the website is to try and get you in the know of things so you can feel like the cool kid on the block and be ready for all these awesome things. Whether it is waiting for the best new game like Tom Clancy's The Division to come out at midnight with me, to being ready to open up all the expensive and exciting rares in the newest Magic the Gathering sets. Along with all of these things it is to introduce myself and get you pumped up for reading articles provided to you from your local game store. So to start let us see what is new.
Now as many of you already know we carry tons of video games from Atari to the most current high tech games coming out each month. So one of the most common questions that I get is what games are coming out soon? With that I'm going to be doing my best at the beginning of each month to let all you fine folks know all the hot games releasing during that time and to get you onto them with some pre-orders. After all there is nothing worse than going to get the game you want and finding out they are clean out, so pre-order quick, after all it cost zero extra and sometimes even nets you some cool bonuses.
I personally will be looking forward to the aforementioned Tom Clancy's The Division coming out in March on the 8th and Dues Ex: Mankind Divided later on in August of this year. The hard part is paying attention to not miss all the other great games like Far Cry Primal which is set during the stone age and takes you to a gaming experience that hasn't been done at all before. Then there is the next installment in the Gears of War franchise Gears of War 4, which is trying to go back to its roots in the originally game of being a creepy walk the halls and get jumped by crazy beasts shooter. A few others coming out will be the new Doom reboot, Dishonored 2, Ratchet and Clank, Quantum Break, and for those who love a hard game we even have Dark Souls 3. Best part about all of this is you can ask us any questions about these and we will give you the best answers you can get.
Now if you prefer a little more face to face entertainment and enjoy collecting things I think it's time you got into Magic the Gathering. Stop in anytime and we can teach you how to play in only five minutes to get you into a game that has been around since 1993. We have events for free every Friday at six and a huge event coming out this weekend. The newest set of Magic is Oath of the Gatewatch and if you want a good entry point you can take place in the prerelease this weekend for only 30 dollars. It is your first shot at getting brand new cards before they even come out to the public and to meet new and great people in all three stores. Don't be intimidated or scared by the word tournament though, we are all here just to enjoy and play a fun game. So stop in and let me teach you how to start playing my favorite pastime.
Continuing on many of you have been in and seen a lot of our great board games on the shelves from Catan and Ticket to Ride to Trains and Munchkin. So what are some of the big games to pick up starting out this year? Well if you haven't already grabbed Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens I suggest running in here and grabbing those, but my mind has been stuck on Seven Wonders. A great games based on many of our ancient cites and how through three ages they came to power. It's super simple to play and as the month goes on will be talked about in it's own little article to show you more about it, or as always stop in and I'll show you what's all inside the box to really get you going.
Winding down one of the last things that I would like to try and talk about is comics. Some of you may remember us carrying comics many years ago, but going on almost a year now we have started carrying them again, and it couldn't have been at a better time. We have comics like Deadpool number one that came out a few months back to get your mind on Deadpool before the movie in February. There is also last issue of Marvel's Secret Wars and The Walking Dead number 150 that came out today along with Mighty Morphing Power Rangers Issue Zero means even today you can dive into exciting stories. If none of these even sound slightly entertaining to you don't fret, there are hundreds of comics to get into and we even have many of the first issues or starting trade paperbacks for these comics so you won't miss a single thing. You still have to get in here and pull them in though before someone else beats you to it.
In closing I know there are about a hundred more things I could ramble on about and fill this article with, the nice thing about it is we have time. With this fresh new year the articles getting to you will hopefully become part of your weekly schedule of entertainment and an inside source to the world of gaming. To help with all this, give us feedback, tell us you like it, share on social media with friends and most important of all, stop on into the store.
All in all thanks for your time and until next time,
