Last week we published our written review of the Starfinder Alien Archive here: http://rollforcombat.com/blog/the-starfinder-alien-archive-were-not-in-gola rion-anymore/

Check out the extended review on the Roll For Combat podcast today where a GM, and player and a professional game designer from Blizzard discuss the book in detail!

Duh, a podcast. Nothing against you guys, great work and keep it up, but podcasts are lame. I could read in 30 minutes max what it takes me 2 hours to listen to.

Too bad, I liked your written review and wanted something more in-depth, but I guess I'll pass this time.


Depends on the Podcast, most are fun to listen to. At work right now but I’ll try to check this out later ^w^

Err. Since the streetday of Alien Archives is tomorrow, isn't this technically a Preview?

A preview just gives small details without giving an opinion. A review goes into detail and explains the book and one's thoughts on the book. Hence, it's a review.

I think they meant Preview in that people are getting a look into the book before they would normally be able to on it's streetdate.

Nice; a podcast. Allows me to listen to it as I drive or at work. Can't usually read an in-depth article during those times.

Thanks!


Is there a way to full screen or enlarge the youtube transcript? I am one of those who cant readily access the video at work and wont have the time to watch it at home.

Not directly, but you can easily zoom into your browser to make the font bigger. In Chrome just hold down CTRL and use your mouse scroll wheel to zoom into the text. The "Zoom" function is also in the drop-down menu.

All browsers allow you to zoom in/out, this is a handy trick to make any font bigger on any site quickly and easily.
