Morning Links: Evangelion director and Ghibli featurette, New FFG Netrunner and X-wing previews, New Indie Gala
Neon Genesis Evangelion director Hideaki Anno and Studio Ghibli have teamed up to produce a short film for a special effects exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, Japan. You can watch the trailer for the film, Kyoshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru (Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo) above and read the complete article at the Anime News Network.
Fantasy Flight Games has posted a new preview for the upcoming Netrunner reboot, giving a pretty lengthy preview of the options available for the Runner player this turn. This is easily one of my most anticipated games for the remainder of the year (especially since I missed it entirely the first time around, although I remember seeing in on the shelves of the local comic book store). Read the full article over at Fantasy Flight Games. There is also a new preview of X-Wing up.
In case your backlog is not nearly large enough, Indie Gala has introduced its newest bundle. This one includes Rig n’ Roll, Space Rangers, and Reign: Conflict of Nations, as well as Death to Spies, Death to Spies: Moment of Truth, King’s Bounty: Armored Princess, and UFO: Afterlight if you pay over the current average. As I write this, the average is just under $7.00 (it may be different when you check), but I can vouch for King’s Bounty, which is the best (unofficial) Heroes of Might and Magic game in a long time. Really, it’s fantastic. You can watch the trailer for it above. I haven’t played the rest of them, but you can go to the Indie Gala site for more information. There are still two games that will unlock in the second week, so there’s actually even more to it.
