A buddy of mine sent me the link to DnDclassic.com website. How funny that this whole thing turned up just as I was starting a Planescape adventure. You wanna know what’s really fun? Trying to re-imagine an AD&D 2.0 into 4e. Why 4e you ask?! Well that’s what the party wanted to play under.
So sad about Atari, a company that introduced me to video gaming. One of my most vivid memories from my childhood are the nights me and my dad set and played Combat together on the Atari 2600. Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Atari. I was really hoping you’d made it to 2019 so Blade Runner would at least made sense. Also, as an D&D fan I have special place in my heart for Atari for supporting so many wonderful RPG’s throughout the years. I just hope who ever picks up the D&D rights will have the same passion Atari showed.
Also, RIP THQ, and I hope Vigil will find a home.
If you haven’t heard Vigil, the studio behind the Darksiders games, was not bought by any other publisher and will most likely end up closing shop. This letter from one of their developers almost brought tears to my eyes.
Yes, all the closures are distressing. Definitely an unstable industry
Good luck with your Planescape adventure!
