Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Sets Digital Sales Record, Throws Down on Retail

We really liked Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.  And it looks like we weren't alone.  Stardock have announced that the game has sold over 100,000 copies via digital distribution channels.  The publisher was previously worried that Steam might have cannabalized their direct sales of the game, but instead, saw it only supplement them.  Obviously with direct sales Stardock is getting a larger piece of the financial pie, so they wouldn't want to cut into that.  Thankfully this looks like an everybody wins situation.

Tabletop Co-Op: Defenders of the Realm Dragon Expansion

It's time once again for some Tabletop Co-Op! This month, we're taking a look at an expansion to one of the board games we've previously featured here at Co-Optimus: Defenders of the Realm. Since the original is my favorite co-op board game, I eagerly grabbed the first expansion, and absolutely love it. The Dragon Expansion, as it is called, adds more customization options, variant rule sets, and, best of all, new generals for the heroes to fight against. (And they are even painted!)
