Illionois Nazis. I hate Illinois Nazis. I'm not a fan of Nazis of any type, to be honest, especially those still left over from WWII that run evil organizations that are looking to infiltrate into every aspect of life and take over as some sort of multi-headed mythical creature. Oh look, it's Red Skull. What timing. Let's go punch him in the face. That's what you'll be doing in The Rise of Red Skull, a new expansion for Marvel Champions coming soon from Fantasy Flight.

I've mentioned before that I never want to go out into the ocean. Just too much stuff that could be under me that I don't know about. However, I do like the idea of living on the coast. But, to be honest, just because you're on solid ground doesn't mean the denizens of the deep can't get you. At least, that's what I've learned by looking at the new expansion for Arkham Horror that Fantasy Flight has announced. It's called Under Dark Waves.

No matter how much testing a company does for their game, once everything gets out into the wild of the player's hands, things might start to crop up that weren't an issue before. Something doesn't work as intended. People get confused about a rule or interaction. A piece proves to be a bit too powerful compared to others. Whatever happens, it's good that the company looks to fix these issues. And that's what Fantasy Flight is doing here with the new Star Wars: Armada E&C and FAQ that they've posted up.

In this preview, we get a look at two new units coming for Star Wars: Legion that are a step up from the average squad.
Padme Amidala wasn't your average monarch. She didn't just sit on her throne, occasionally make a speech, and generally stay to herself.

But not just her, Cad Bane is coming along as well, representing said Separatists. In this preview, we get a little look at what you can expect when they are released.
