  • Currently slated to be released in September
  • Gameplay allows 2-5 players
  • The Mulder and Scully players have powers that compliment each other
  • Scully's power is Skeptic, allows her to gather extra evidence
  • Mulder's power is Believer
  • Skinner is more of an influencer
  • CSM tries to cause problems across the board
  • Alex Krycek is a (helpful) jerk
  • Appearances from major villians from seasons 1-3
  • The expansion pack will be released 5 months after initial release
  • Flukeman will be a big part of that expansion

Review: The X-Files: Season 10 #14

I know, I know… I’m about a month late on this review… blame it on SDCC hangover. I was not shying away from reviewing this issue, believe me, I was actually very keen to do it because it provoked quite an interesting reaction from parts of the fandom since the previews came through the grapevine.

I’m excited to address some, if not all, of the talked about topics, but first, on to the basics. A spoiler-filled review and further opinions after the jump.

Review: The X-Files: Year Zero #1

In “The X-Files: Year Zero”, our heroes are once again on the case, this time hot on the tail (hehe) of a shape-shifting cat. Or is it human? In this case, it’s a black leopard, but either way, it provides for some classic Mulder and Scully banter, leads us all the way back to 1946, and introduces us to some just as lovable new agents, Bing Ellison and Humility Ohio.

Year Zero is sure to satisfy both Philes and new readers alike. This issue, written true to character by Karl Kesel, is a solid first outing and well worth the read.

Take the jump and read on for the full spoilerific review:
