I just wrote my first DFC Preview Article

October 30, 2009

I thought I’d share that I just wrote my first DFC preview article.  Originally, the plan was to post the article here on Monday.  But instead, the preview articles should be posted on the main page of Vs.org.  Be sure to check them out for the next two weeks for all the DFC goodness.

Come back here too.  We’ll have all the links to the preview articles being doen by the Vs. community as they come out.  Plus, you never know when the design team will stop by and provide some behind-the-scenes commentary.

Anyway, the first article is the team preview for Darkseid’s Elite.  Here’s one of those behind the scenes details I was telling you about.  I got my wires crossed when I was writing the article (which hapens all the time with me) so I ended up including an extra card by mistake.

As usual, you guys benefit from my inability to read.  You’re welcome.

The Future

January 28, 2009

By now you’ve probably seen the news.  If not, see this announcement from Upper Deck.

Well, this obviously isn’t a surprise.  But I am surprised just how sad it makes me to see the official announcement.  This is a damn shame.  Yeah, the writing has been on the wall for a long time.  But it’s sad news nonetheless.

Is Vs. dead?  No.  The fans will keep the game alive.  People will continue playing with the cards Upper Deck released.  And we will continue to provide new content.

The original DCU project started in response to the announcement that there would be no new DC content for Vs.  Now that there will be no new official content for Vs, the guys on the project have re-dedicated themselves to the idea of putting out top-flight fan-made content.

What can you expect from us?  You’ll get the best fan-made sets we can deliver.  DCU was fun, but it wasn’t polished enough.  Our next set, DFC, will be better.  We’ve been hard at work on it for months.  Currently, we are knee-deep in playtesting to make sure this set stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the best sets Upper Deck ever released.

I can’t tell you exactly when DFC will be released.  I do not want to put it out there unfinished like we did with DCU.  But we will give you updates here as they become available.

After DFC, the future’s a little less certain.  We may branch out into Marvel content.  We’ll probably take on a few new team members as we ramp up our output.  And, I’d like to go back and polish DCU someday.  Whatever the future holds,  you can count on us to provide new Vs. content.

The game will not die as long as the fans want to continue playing it.
