Thanks for your patience.
Gamers the world over have cause to rejoice this year, as the classic card game Netrunner is slated for a hard reboot. Personally, I have another reason to celebrate, since the previously discontinued game is being resurrected under the banner of one of my favourite ridiculously overdeveloped, more-of-a-life-experience/therapy-session-than-a-game games, Android. As I implied in my previous discussion of this beautiful monstrosity, Android has enough theme for ten games squeezed into its bulging, brittle husk; so it’s no surprise that Fantasy Flight has positioned a few other games beneath Android to catch the spill-over before it dribbles all over the carpet. With the recently released Infiltration and the upcoming Netrunner, Android is becoming the franchise that film nerds all wish Blade Runner had become.
