Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022. "Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city. The further down the construction site the tile is, the more stone you'll need to pay to take it. Immediately add the tile to your city, either expanding outward or stacking higher.

DC Cancels Four 'New 52' Titles



Well it looks like DC has canceled another four of their New 52 titles. August will be the final issues for Threshold, Demon Knights, Dial H, and Legion of Super-Heroes.

I never really cared for Legion since the beginning and I'm shocked it lasted this long. I personally liked Legion Lost more, and of course it has already been canceled. I was reading Dial H, although never really got into it and not surprised it's going. Threshold on the other hand has me confused since it's a newer title and seemed like a good place to put characters like Blue Beetle, Larfleeze and DC's other space related characters. I have mixed feelings about Demon Knights, I never read it but after seeing a preview on Comic Vine I was tempted to pick it up.

Oh well, I guess we will have to wait and see what comics they replace them with. I hope they bring back maybe a few Wildstorm characters. What I don't want to see is another four Bat books, or more Super books. It's like TV Networks who want ratings like American Idol even if a show has a fan base or great writing they cancel it, not taking other factors into consideration like time slot, they just want advertisers $$. DC seems to use Superman and Batman as their benchmark the same way. I know they already announced a new Superman book. And The Movement and Green Team have been announced. I haven't read either yet but personally I dont' see them lasting any longer than Threshold did.
