Breaking 4th: Gaming with HellzGurl (Borderlands)
Publisher: Aspectral Comix
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/12/2017 18:44:04

Hellyssa exploring the Borderlands. A comix version of "Let's Play", because... why not? Here Hellyssa is talking about various things and the game, occasionally rambling on, it really felt like reading a transscription of a "Let's Play" session. The writer did a great job of capturing the essense. Instead of going for min/maxing your character or one of the common strategy guide approaches, Hellyssa talk's about "Did you know you could do this?" things. While the in-game camera goes in an expected direction, the concept behind "Gaming with HellzGurl" shows the creative potential of the "Breaking 4th" series.

Breaking 4th: Blind Date
Publisher: Aspectral Comix
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser]

A good story and the story comprised most of the PDF. The Hellyssa was the focus this time and there were other characters introduced in a way that flowed with the story. Except for a "bathroom request" near the end, which seemed a out of place or forced, the dialog felt smooth and natural reenforcing the impression that the characters have had a history together. Everything was easy to read, the "hand written" text from "Chick Magnet" was no where to be found. As before, that are many little details to be appriecated here. The one that stood out to me is how peices of Hellyssa's past are revealed: framed as literal puzzle pieces. A nice touch! Great rendering, great characters, and a good story.

Breaking 4th: Chick Magnet
Publisher: Aspectral Comix

This is a good introduction to what I hope is a long running series. The most important aspect of a story, for me, are the characters. "Chick Magnet" is an introduction to the characters in the "Breaking 4th" world. Surprisingly, the background art is also a "character" that has a story to tell, instead of being a typical static backdrop. I had a problem reading most of the "hand written" text on my phone, it just was not rendering very well (a little better on the computer). Also, some of the "hidden details" were to low res for me to notice or apprieciate, appearing as pixelated blobs. The "Breaking 4th: A Closer Look" had higher resolution images of these "hidden details" which were readable. It was a nice change of pace to learn about the main character's routine through the eye's of story's antogonist.

Alpha Blue
Publisher: Kort'thalis Publishing
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/31/2015 21:01:57

Alpha Blue is a great blend of the old style Sci-Fi B-Movies. The kind where the story had good ideas but it had no budget, or the whole thing was so bad it was good.

The game system is very stream lined and offer quick resolution of skill checks as well as combat. If the members your group can play "any type" of character, your group can be up and running in a few minutes by rolling a few character charts.

But the real goody bits is in the setting. Several sections of the Alpha Blue station are creatively described just enough to get your imagination going. There are many story seeds that are also available to help get the ball rolling. Choosing to go with a setting that explores the underbelly of debauchery or taking the higher ground as an "Aftermath Scene Investigation" team, Alpha Blue has you covered.

The PDF is nicely laid out, with easily readable sections and great background graphics. Navigating the PDF is easy using the hyper links. The artwork is superb and if you look at the details, you may even get a laugh. There some pages with excessive white space where it would have been nice to have more pictures or content.

Do you find the night-life of Las Vegas inappropriate and/or offensive? Stay away from Alpha Blue. Does a Las Vegas in space sound like an exciting prospect for an adventure? Then check out Alpha Blue.
