Weekly Random Game discussion: Have you played this? What did you think?

I will pick a random game from a random rpg search and see if anyone on the Gauntlet has played this game and if what feedback there is about that game. It seems like a fun way to get opinions on obscure games from the community.

This week’s entry is…
BESM (Big Eyes Small Mouth) anime rpg all versions including d20
Any fans or haters out there? If so, why?

Sep. 8 - Sep. 15 Frontier


Wow-- good super obscure one right out of the gate!

My take: on this week’s entry Frontier

I had a passing interest in this game when it popped up in my random search.

From publisher blurb:
"Burn, slash, cut, incinerate, shoot, maul, vaporise, maim, slaughter, electrocute, rend, blast and disintegrate your way through The Frontier !

Inspired by action roleplaying games, such as Borderlands and Destiny, The Frontier is a sci-fi game of hi-octane action that focuses on the simpler pleasures of life. Explore the alien ruins of a faraway world, fight a ton of nasties and baddies, and collect a boatload of loot as your reward!"


*** Create intricate characters with complex personalities, then go shoot bad guys in the face and take their stuff!*
** An exciting post-apocalyptic setting, complete with an introductory scenario to get you straight into the action. The game’s setting is completely optional and easily replaced by your own creation.*

Sounds like a setting split between Apocalypse World meets Durance"!
Really cool!

  • A simple game system with old school sensibilities to keep things moving at a smooth pace. If you’ve ever played a d20-based game, you already know how to play!

Ah…hmmm. Maybe?

  • Guns, guns, guns! A multitude of unique weapons and armor, each with several different randomly-determined variants.

Ugh. Nevermind…I don’t want a game focused on how much damage a million weapons do… Still, I have never tried it. Maybe it’s great? Well…probably not. If you have tried this game, let me know.
