Stoic On Using Kickstarter Again, TBS Factions’ Future

Viking caravans might be slow, methodical machines, but they make their arrival worth the wait. By mercilessly slaughtering all who oppose them. I'm mostly certain that won't be the outcome of The Banner Saga's impending arrival, but I don't like to make assumptions. What I know for sure, however, is that Stoic isn't just tossing chapter one out in the cold and leaving it in…

Fly The Flag: The Banner Saga: Factions Now Available

Feature: The Banner Saga Blowout, Pt 2

Of Banners, Sagas, Microtransactions, And Balance

Last week, you (probably, I hope; otherwise we can't be friends anymore) read my impressions of The Banner Saga: Factions, the soon-to-be-released F2P multiplayer spin-off of Stoic's gorgeously animated Viking strategy epic. Those are some of my favorite adjectives stacked together into a¬†scrumptious¬†sentence sandwich, so I came away predictably pleased. But after finishing my session and quaffing a hearty Viking ale grilled cheese from a…
