I Love the Corps

Try the Quickstart

I Love Corps is a game that ties military, action, science fiction, and horror together in one messy package. I Love Corps is designed to feel like a movie or show, this comes through in its rules. The game uses only a D6 for cinematic storytelling. Although I found the quickstart rules to be a tad messy there is enough of a fun game here to have a good time. 

What is the game About? 

I Love Corps is about what happens after the earth dies. You will be fighting “rebel scum” and monsters as you play as one of the United Colonial Marine Corps. You can pick up the quickstart for free on DriveThruRpg. 

Before Diving In… 

I Love the Corps is rough around the edges. The game’s tone is not going to be something that everyone. The rest of this article is going to cover everything that Psychic Cactus Games has released for I Love the Corps. This game does not take itself too seriously! So if that is what you are looking for this might not be the game for you.

I Love the Corps: Marine Training Manual 

Inside this book, you will get everything you need for character creation. You will also get further information about the style and setting of the game world. Before buying this book I highly suggest reading the quickstart rules. 

You are also going to get the rules for playing I Love the Corps. The Marine Training Manual functions as a sort of player’s handbook for the game. If you are alright using the PDF you can pick up a copy of this book for FREE on DrivethruRPG! 

I Love the Corps: Classified Materials 

The Classified Materials book is a Game Master’s guide for I Love the Corps. Everything in this book will give the Game Masters guidance on how to run the game. You will also get advice for creating stories and campaigns in various tones and styles. 

Pre-made colonies to explore, hostiles, hazards, and more horrors to unleash on your players are also included in this book. The Classified Materials book is a must-have for any Game Master looking to run I Love the Corps: The best part is the book is FREE on DriveThruRPG!


Conclusion 

I Love the Corps is a game that does not take itself too seriously and can be owned for free on DriveThruRPG. It is made by Psychic Cactus Games, I take no ownership of any of the materials mentioned here. The cover for this article is the cover for the I Love the Corps: Classified Materials book.

Is It A Plane!?

What is this Game About? 

Is It A Plane is a tabletop roleplaying game where you replace dice with doodles! 

As you are playing the game, the group will all draw panels at once. After the panels are done the Editor (Game Master) is going to decide what happens next from the panels: This game is best played in person but can be done in an online group as well. 

No Dice? 

Since this game is diceless you have to take action by doodling. You are going to have to draw as fast as possible, there is no refining the drawings you are making. The bigger the panel the greater the power it can have. 

You are only going to have 22 pages to achieve success so you are going to have to be smart with your actions. You draw your actions at the same time. 

The PDF is FREE!

Is It a Plane!? Is technically a free game! You can pick it up on DriveThruRPG right now! Inside the book, you will find everything you need to play the game! Is It a Plane could be just what you need to break up a long campaign if you want to try something fresh! 

Conclusion 

Is It a Plane!? Is a game I would not have stumbled on if I wasn’t working on my big ttrpg project. Although I believe the game would work best in person, you could use drawing apps or Roll20 and play it online. 

Psychic Cactus Games has a couple of other games I am dying to try out now.

Disney Dreamlight Valley: Pre-Order Bonuses

Before diving in, you need to know a few things before choosing a system to pre-order the game. Disney Dreamlight Valley will go free-to-play sometime in 2023; purchasing a pack is necessary to play on September 6, 2022. If you plan on playing on PlayStation or Steam, you must buy the package you want on September 6, 2021.

PlayStation will not support cross-progression, so if that is something you want to have, you have to make your purchase on a separate system.


First Week Bonus

The Mickey Mouse Donut Headband and Choco Crocodile will be available if you play within the game’s first week, releasing in early access.


Standard Edition

Inside every package, you will get early access to the game.

You get the clothing set shown in the picture, the complete furniture set, 3 design motifs, and premium currency. Moonstones are the premium currency for Disney Dreamlight Valley. You will be able to use Moonstones to purchase Starpaths and cosmetics. It is unknown right now what the premium shop will look like or entail fully. The developers have said that gameplay will not be locked behind Moonstones.

You can buy this pack for USD 29.99.


Deluxe Edition

You get all standard edition items in this pack as well. You can buy this pack for USD 49.99.

You get the clothing set (5 wearable items) and a celestial turtle animal companion. The furniture set includes 10 decoration items. You will also receive the deluxe edition clothing set with a jersey and headband. 14,500 Moonstones are also included in this pack. Finally, you get everything in the standard edition package.

MultiVersus: Game Review

Character Select Screen as of Open Beta.

MultiVersus is the brawler I have been waiting for; it has a diverse cast of characters, runs smoothly, and has an excellent soundtrack. I was able to buy the founder’s pack and get a couple of days worth of early access. You can play MultiVersus for free right now! Although I got early access, this review will cover the open beta.

The Career Tab

The career tab is one of my favorites I have seen in a brawler thus far, but I think it could use some additions to make it shine. You can see your current level, change your icon, view the leaderboard, and see your most played hero. 

At the bottom of this screen, you can see your match history, and if you click on a match, it will tell you how much damage was done, the ring-outs you and your teammate got, and the deaths. 

Although the career tab gives you some information, I think it could show more. Being able to view the statistics for all of the characters would be a plus. It would also be nice to see how much time you have on any of your characters, not just the one you play the most. 

The Battle Pass 

At the time of writing this article, the battle pass has fifteen tiers because the game is currently in pre-season. You’ll have to progress the pass by completing missions: There are daily missions and seasonal milestones. Daily assignments give you 100 – 200 battle pass points, while seasonal milestones give you 600 battle pass points. Playing the game can earn a few battle pass points through winning and losing matches. 

The pre-season battle pass.

The battle pass has three skins inside, and all three of the skins are well made. The Cake the Cat skin is a variet skin for Jake the Dog.

When the first season launched, I was apprehensive about the battle pass because free-to-play games have been a hit or miss as of late. I was right to be anxious because the season one pass has a lot of blank space.

Going into the battle pass, you should check the available skins. Skins can be expensive in this game, and the battle pass can be an excellent way to get a couple of skins if you pay for the premium tier.


Is it fun?

MultiVerses is extremely fun, and despite having some issues at launch, it is easy for a newcomer to pick up and enjoy.

The roster is vibrant; there is someone for everyone to play with! However, the class system is confusing at best and lackluster at worst. As the game moves forward, I hope to see the class system expanded: A menu with details about each class would be a fantastic addition to the game.

During season one, the performance has begun to become an issue. During multiple online matches, the lag was so bad it was hard for my opponent and me to continue. In MultiVerses, you can complete missions in bot matches. Unfortunately, the lag continued in all of the bot matches.

You can jump into MultiVerses and enjoy it as a free-to-play experience. However, like many new free-to-play games released this year, MultiVerses suffers from horrible marketing. Morty was released recently, and he received little to no marketing.


I would give MultiVerses a solid 7.5/10

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
