I’m Streaming Now, Too!

I have joined this whole streaming craze! Admittedly, unlike a lot of people, I’m streaming myself playing a card game at the moment, but once I can get my computer to cooperate a bit more, I’ll likely expand to stuff besides Netrunner.

Running the Nets – Looking Ahead to Creation and Control

I’m feeling so hype today, so let’s take a look at the absolute deluge of spoilers that have come out since Creation and Control was announced!

I know this is a little (just a little, :p) early, but new cards are always super cool. As usual, these are complete first impressions, could be totally wrong, still have two data packs + 39 other cards in the box coming out before we’ll have them so things could completely change, etc, etc warnings apply here. I’m just taking a bit of a look at what the future holds.

RtNfFaP – Corp Poisoned My Disel

But the nature of Netrunner’s scoring system means that it does matter. It can, in fact, be the difference between winning a match and losing it.

RtNfFaP – Rigging it up as an Anarch

So, back a bit ago, I spent about a week toying with trying to make a “Big Rig” Anarch deck. For those unfamiliar with the idea, a “Big Rig” deck is one based around the idea of the Runner assembling their complete rig (full set of breakers + any tools they need to help them out) quickly, and then sustain it with a powerful economy. This deck (at least until the release of Cyber Exodus) was the domain of Kate both because of her ability and the relative power of the Shaper card suite.

RtNfFaP – A quick look at Cyber Exodus

Well, I spent all week on a failed(?) experiment making a Big Rig-style Anarch deck. I’ll talk about that next week, because I have a fair amount I want to talk about with it.

Instead, this week, since we got all those delicious spoilers for Cyber Exodus, I figured I might as well give some real quick thoughts on them.
