We crack open the beautiful Tin of Outpost Siberia! *NSFW* Join Jaaz, Kellie, Joclyne and I as we learn a little russian, we have some drinks and plenty of 'In soviet russia...' jokes! Join us as we play our international group of outpost adventurers. *Please be advised we were provided this game by IDW Games who sent me a copy of “Outpost: Siberia” for the purposes of this review, but as always the opinions expressed are honest, open opinionaedand our own!* Please anyone fluent in Russian let us know is we are saying it right ;)
"Welcome to Outpost 1, an observatory in the isolated frozen tundra of Siberia! My and my team have been studying the area, but last night a massive storm set in, bringing with it a pack of nightmarishly strange creatures. Now, trapped by the weather and these beasts our only hope is the use our meager resources to defend ourselves and wait out the storm. Ration our vodka carefully and we may see the sun again!" -Outpost: Siberia
To say surviving Outpost Siberia is a challenge is the understatement of the year. You will die, over and over again in new ways. Sometimes it will be of thirst, other times you'll perish in the horns of a siberia moose or some mutant snow beast. But rest assured, you will meet your end in the cold Siberian snow and there is nothing you can do about it.
But is it fun or frustrating?
