News Post: Renegade Game Studios To Expand Licensing Partnership With Hasbro
I was hoping this was a video game company.
Oh you don't understand. A video game company would be worse because it'd mean more glorified mobile games.
The search for a new Transformers Console game similar to WFC/FoC or Devastation continues.
the company that's put out the TF/Joe deck-building games and TF/Joe/PR roleplaying games
Renegade Games Studios
a G.I. Joe RISK set could be amazing if someone really knows their lore.
Wait, we haven’t had a G.I. Joe RISK game yet? Seriously?
Always wished Hasbo would work with Google to map out Cybertron. Leave blank areas to build on annd then eventually we could travel around it in VR or something. Atleast make the skeleton for now.
Also wish every GTA game had 1 secret random Autobot that will tform and kill you if you tried to steal it. lol
i'm a really big fan of heroes of the grid and they just started expanding that game with other hasbro themes like gi joe.i hope they make a transformers board game just like that.
I was hoping for this Renegade.
As long as they expand the Guardian system to add Transformers I will be happy.
Heroes of the Grid is an amazingly fun game and I\'m excited for the GIJoe expansion. Now give me Transformers
Agreed, hard but fun. I wish they had done Transformers first instead of GI Joe.
I've had a project I was working on to add Decepticons to the game (using the same rules characters like the Psycho Rangers have) and a Mastermind card for Megatron. Might pull that back out. Not to shamelessly plug or anything.
Reading the press release it sounds like it's not being thought of, however a Transformers themed Roborally would be amazing.
can you give a simple explanation of the play style? I don't really understand it and couldn't find anything that really explained it much online.
Is the G.I. Joe Mission Critical game that IPs version of Heroes of the Grid?
Basically it's a co-op game.
Heroes of the grid everyone chooses a character to play, a power ranger from any of the available teams. You get a deck of ten cards unique to that ranger. The cards have all your different abilities but the deck also acts like a life bar. If you run out of cards when taking damage you get knocked out, you are sent back to the command center to power back up. To many knock outs for you and your team mates and you lose the game.
You have to work together to coordinate your available actions to move to different locations start fights with the enemies and defend locations before the get panicked. There are 4 locations and if at any point all 4 are panicked. You lose the game.
The bad guys deploy each round usually foot soldiers which are simple to beat but can swarm and over run locations. You also get stronger as you defeat them because the defeated foot soldiers fill up a track and will unlock your zords which give you all sorts of game breaking abilities.
But from the deployment deck monsters
will also come out they are much more difficult and instantly panic a location when they arrive. But beating them instantly unlocks a zord.
Finally the boss will come out. The hardest to beat. To win the game you must defeat them.
Mission critical is essentially the same game though the GIJoe Vehicles are unlocked differently and the deployment of the enemies is changed. Both games are compatible so you can absolutely have someone kicking butt as a Duke while another player is taking names as The Gold Zeo ranger etc.
My family loves the game and I really recommend it. It seems more daunting then it actually is and there are a ton of advanced scenarios you can play to keep it fresh.
what a coincidence, I was playing Clank in Space with my children and saw Renegade Studios on the box, and I was wondering where I saw that name...it was in this thread!
cool, thanks for explaining!!! do you have kiddos you play it with?
Yes my youngest daughter plays it. She is 9. The game actually has turned her into massive Power rangers fan.
cool, might get my son the Joe version for Christmas.
