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

I'll keep an eye out for it, thanx.

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.

Never heard of it, but sounds interesting.

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.
