You'll need to post a link as TNT is blocking the image. I've heard of 3:16 in a couple of places but not this. Maybe it's the same game?

I haven't had a chance to actually play it yet, but I do own it. It seems very combat oriented, but could be fun for what it is. My original answer to the poll was wrong because I only think of it as 3:16, so didn't realize that's what you were talking about.

I also picked up "Remember Tomorrow," a Cyberpunk game with a narrative style ruleset by the same author. I haven't fully digested the rules yet, but I find myself increasingly drawn to narrative rulesets (not that my group is willing to play them, unfortunately).

I played a demo at one of the Vegas Game Days. It was fun and quick and laser focused on what it does. I would say it is well designed and we had fun playing it. Not my cup of tea personally, but it was fun to play none-the-less.

If you are looking for an action oriented space marines game where there are solid rules for what a GM can bring to the encounter, I think the game is worth checking out. I think there is a fantasy version out or coming out called carnage amongst the tribes. :-D

3:16 Carnage amongst the stars looks very interesting. It seems a little bit board gamey, I think thats intentional. I think the very quick character creation is designed to let you burn through them. That will add a cool element , in the respect of playing a marine with a VERY short lifespan. The problem may come in trying to distinguish between the many characters you'll get through.

That's just an opinion on reading it, i've never played it.

I recommend it, but only with the right group.

Bought it, read it, tried to get friends interested in playing it, gave up and ran a Who game with strangers instead :)

One day I would like to try convincing folk to play it again - it needs to be played face to face.
