Players of the pen and paper RPG Dungeons & Dragons will be happy to know the guys at Wizards of the Coast and Curse have just revealed they have entered open beta for D&D Beyond, the ultimate Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition website!

The beta will be hosted in three stages. The first stage, which is currently active, includes an interactive Dungeons & Dragons reference library and official forums.  This is active right now so if you’re interested in joining the beta, you can visit the official website and sign-in using a Twitch.tv account.

As the summer progresses, Phase two will allow players to create interactive character sheets on their computers, smartphones and tablets. Phase three, which will launch even later, will offer campaign management tools to make it easier for players to keep track of their in-game progress.

This news could mean a complete functional overhaul of how Dungeons & Dragons can be played. The capabilities of the website can make it easier than ever before to introduce new players (like myself) to the game, make it easier for players to communicate with each other, and expand the game’s capabilities.

This is an open beta so it can be played by anyone who wishes to check it out, and players are free to talk about their experiences with it online all they wish!

We will keep players posted on the beta’s progress as the beta moves into new testing phases. Until then, if you want to try it for yourself, check it out!

With a name inspired by the RF Switch gamers needed to use to change their televisions back and forth between cable TV and their video game console, the band RF Switch performs a rockin setlist of music inspired by television and video games from the 80s.

This past weekend, RF Switch performed at the CT GamerCon 2017 and we were lunch enough to get some video of them in action!  Here’s their rendition of the theme to Metroid.
