Onitama is out. It’s free t try and I’ve heard it is very polished.

Edit: Strange. I meant to write “very polished” and somehow autocorrect changed it to “isn’t polished.” That’s some lame autocorrect action, there…

I grabbed it last night when BGG tweeted about it - love it on tabletop. The app is good at first glance; I haven’t been able to purchase the expansion as nothing happens when I click on it, and in my second game against the AI it locked up midway through and required a force close…

Haven’t messed with mp yet as I have no idea how to add friends in the Asmodee apps…

Four days left on the Digital Tabletop Humble Bundle (Steam). Titles include Sentinels of the Multiverse and the Pathfinder Card Game,

Also, Mi-Clos Studio is having a sale on all their titles, so if you missed Out There or any of the sequels, they are on sale now.

Chaos Reborn: Adventures (heretofore known as CR:A) is releasing for iOS next Wednesday - anyone have any experience with the Steam version? Worth the price of admission?

Dragon Quest XI has arrived on Steam and PS4. not sure about Switch.
but will come for Switch.

graphics on Unreal Engine 4. have seen amazing screenshots.


#990

It looks good. I was going to pick it up he over day but my Target wasn’t carrying it. As soon as I can get a PS4 copy, I’ll give my impressions.


#992

Wtf is wrong with people with these reviews? Will probably pick this up later today or tomorrow…

PocketGamer review seems to like it a lot - http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPad/Chaos+Reborn%3A+Adventures/review.asp?c=78652


Julian Gollop's latest gem is not XCOM and is out now: Chaos Reborn Adventures
#993

Downloading it now. He’s right, though, it’s not like xcom. How dare the designer of xcom make a different game! 1-Star!


#994

Grabbing it as well… lemme get my feet wet and we’ll get some MP going

Age of Sigmar Champions just landed on mobile today.

https://www.warhammerchampions.com/ (links for android and ios there)

By Playfusion who also did the Lightseekers CCG app, which was a solid app but the theme didn’t keep my interest.

Happy to see a digital CCG that plays in portrait, that isn’t Mabinogi Duel.


#996

Most reviewers are idiots, present company excluded. I usually just look at the reviews to see if a game is buggy or not, but even then I take it with a grain of salt.


#997

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes plays in portrait and is actually quite good, though the power creep is quite extreme.


#998

Oh yeah, I’d forgotten about that one. Played it for a month or so when it was in beta.

Looks like AoS:C shares some of the mechanics of Lightseekers (cards rotate and perform differently based on the facing)

Enjoying it so far, but I’ve only just cleared the tutorials and unlocked all the starter decks.

Also like that they give you the option to scan in and use the physical cards you own in the digital version. (not that I own any)


#999

For those interested, Lightseekers appears to be quite discounted now. My local Ollie’s got a load of stuff in, so I bought a bunch for my son’s birthday in a couple weeks. At $4 for a six-inch figure, I thought it worthwhile just for the toys; if the game’s any good, I’ll view it as a bonus.


#1000

I downloaded AoS:C and played a couple games but I bounced off it pretty hard. I commend it for using a mechanic I’ve not played before and there were some interesting decisions to be made, but something just didn’t click. Part of the issue, I think, is that the interaction between both sides is heavily abstracted so I often felt I was playing a solitaire puzzle game. Whatever the case, I just wasn’t for me.

Stockpile released on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digidiced.sxprelease

Enjoying it so far (working my way through the tutorials).

Interesting that it’s doesn’t appear to be in the clutches of Asmodee, like Isle of Skye was.


#1002

It is out on iOS as well. I bought it instantly.


#1003

Sounds like we need to set up an async game and test it out…


#1004

I’m not sure if this is a game for me, but it sounds like an async game of it may be enough to get me to buy it. :stuck_out_tongue:

Barnes & Noble seems to have their clearance section up again. I’ve snagged a ton of great games from 50%-75% off in here past sales. My local store is currently at %50 off, and there aren’t many great games on the table at the moment, but it is worth checking out as your store may have a different selection.
