The lights are on
EA is bringing board game classic Risk to Xbox Live Arcade on June 23. This trailer – the fifth in a series depicting the Saturday morning cartoon-like backstory – has something to do with rolling enormous snowballs onto cats. We're not entirely sure what that's about.Risk: Factions is coming from Stainless Games, the studio behind the solid XBLA title Magic: The Gathering – Planeswalkers. It contorts the board game original by adding unique powers to each of its five factions and offering objective-based modes and dynamic terrain.Any change to the spartan simplicity of the board game is a good thing in my book. I'm no Risk fan, but having a good studio bringing some new ideas to the table in this digital adaptation makes Risk: Factions worth a look.
What did I just watch?
I'll do the trial game first. That cartoon was kinda meh.
I loved Risk as a kid, so I'll look into it.
This just went from anticipated highly to very skeptical. What the crap was that?
I remember reading about this game a while back and was like awesome I can now play Risk online with my friends anytime... when I saw the screen-shots I was just like wtf!?!?!?! is this piece of garbage??
Did not know. That could be cool.
Even if they make it cartoony, I think it would still be boring old risk.
I wanted to see gameplay, not some horrible cartoon made by the fruit roll up company
um yeah, i wanted it for psn but i think i just changed my mind
The only thing I can say is... NICE SHOTGUN!!
What the heck.
Was that suppose to be funny?
what is risk
What did that have to do with Risk....any idea about purchasing this game just went away.
Risk is great...as a board game.
Huh... alright then.
WTF was this video about???????
what the sam hill did any of that have to do with the game of world domination?
ok then........... i wonder how much this will cost......if its 800 that would be hilarious
