  1. Technically Leah posted this topic about two years ago, but now it's time for an updated thread! Yesterday I finally got a new phone (Samsung Galaxy S4) after having the same bulky one for 3-4 years and I have to say it's nice to finally have something up-to-date, haha. In any case, I'm curious to hear what everyone else has, so which smartphone do you have (if any)? And do you like it, or are you eyeing a new one sometime soon?

    Review: HonorBound

    Developer: JuiceBox Games Publisher: JuiceBox Games Platform: iOS and Android Release Date: February 2014 Rated: 4+ HonorBound boasts elements that a role-playing game (RPG) must exhibit: a turn-based gameplay, character modification, progressive levels, and orchestral visuals, and scoring. Players are tasked to choose their heroes to send in the battlefield, to bring stability to a land of chaos. Similar to Monster Legacy that we“ve previously featured, HonorBound employs a Pokemon-style mechanism, as you beat monsters and turn them into playable heroes. Below is our comprehensive review of this mobile game. Gameplay The goal is to create and lead a squadron of warriors to save a fantasy world dominated by witches and zombies. You will need to choose one character from five elemental heroes. As the game progresses, you need to bank on your strategy to form the rest of your squad. In completing your team, there“s an option for summoning the forces of good, including a wizard or an archer, which can be done using your initial allotment of treasure. Starting the game becomes a breeze, with the ability to collect player points and potions to use in battles later on. But, if you“re saving these for more important actions, you can recruit your party from the battlefield, by weakening your enemies and slowly recruiting them to your team. You can buy new gears, educate them on spell casting, and even combine two heroes to conjure a superior one. Upgrading player ranks Away to level up your characters is to battle them out -- the more difficult the battle is, the higher the chance of getting experience points. Write Party said you can earn more points from a player VS player (PVP) battle, as opposed to a player VS enemy (PVE) one. If you recruited a new hero, the best way to increase their statistics is to take them into an easier level, before proceeding to a more challenging one. In the commander“s case, there“s no need to battle to increase stats. There“s a plus sign located next to the rank category, which spends embers to upgrade when tapped. Ritual 2 and Ritual 3 You can evolve your cards upon reaching Ritual 2. There“s a star ranking, indicating if your cards have fully increased its stats, which can be anywhere between 1-4. If your Warrior Rank has one gold star and three gray ones, it means it can still evolve three times more. Meanwhile, reaching Ritual 3 allows you to fortify your gaming cards. In the middle of a battle, you can pick one gaining card and some sacrifice cards. Take note that the gaining card will yield large amounts of experience. This comes in handy when dealing with tougher enemies and battles. Graphics and sounds In terms of graphics, JNM Tech gives it an 8/10, saying it boasts of flash animations and cartoon-styled worlds and characters. “Menu items look smooth with no glaringly obvious blocky textures,†the article said. These graphics are best exhibited by an iDevice such as the iPhone 5S, which comes with a Retina display that takes care of loading periods and response time. Meanwhile, the graphics are complimented by an overlay of orchestral musical scoring, reminiscent of an old school RPG game. This is best experienced with a handset with a cutting-edge sound technology and graphic prowess like the HTC One M8. It“s one of the latest HTC smartphones that has a revamped BoomSound, as confirmed by O2, which delivers a powerful sound experience without causing distortion. Inside the battles PocketGamer said that the pitfalls are found in the game“s design choices. If you“re not in a battle, you basically just wander in search for treasure. The environments have a claustrophobic element, wherein a battle can be triggered by just a simple interaction with your opponent. Lastly, each step costs energy. When you ran out of them, you either wait for it to be recharged or purchase for energy. PocketGamer said there are certain areas you need to traverse, which are over your maximum number of energy. Conclusion: Overall, HonorBound is an addicting RPG game, appropriate for all players with varied skill sets. The combat provides enough room for players to exercise their freedom in creating their own tactics. What do you like about this four-month-old RPG game?
  3. Many of us have felt the games industry shifting over the past few years. For example, you have probably noticed the huge increase in smartphone and tablet games, as well as other "casual" titles. Indie games also appear more relevantly on many digital distribution channels when they would have been much harder to discover years ago. These experiences pretty much match up with what developers are actually doing. The Game Developers Conference (GDC) surveyed last year's attendees about their development habits. GDC have shared their results which reveal a handful of definite trends. First, there is the result nearly half of developers (51%) who were surveyed identify themselves as indie. In case you're worrying that some EA representative tagged themselves "indie" to fit in, 46% of respondents also said their teams were comprised over 10 or less people. That definitely seems to fit the bill of an indie developer. Of these developers, they were pretty evenly split between releasing games on 360 and PS3 (14% and 13% respectively). However, the Wii U has not yet gained favor with them as only 6.4% expect to make their next game for the system. However, the Wii U is doing better than both Vita and 3DS where 4.2% and 2.8% responded yes to having their next game created for those devices. 55% of developers surveyed are making their next games for the smartphone market. After this, PC stands out with 49% expressing interest in it for next games. Overall, it's pretty easy to see that development treads are heading toward the most indie-friendly gaming spaces. While Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft all are becoming more open to these groups, it seems developers themselves are not as interested.
  4. Do you remember back in May when users who had Rock Band iOS games were hit with a message saying the game would no longer be available? If not, it was a rather simple story. The message declared to users that the game would be gone soon. EA responded it was just a glitch. What seems to be the case now is that the "glitch" about the message was that it notified users too soon. Now, the Rock Band and Rock Band Reloaded games are set to be deleted on July 31st. This means that after the date passes, no one else will be able to download the titles. Even those who already own them won't be able to purchase new DLC. If you didn't already have a copy then get it quick if you care. EA's response to why the games are being deleted is rather simple: "EA's licensing agreement with Harmonix is ending and as a result, EA is discontinuing downloads of Rock Band iOS and Rock Band Reloaded iOS on the App Store after July 31st." If you do have any of the Rock Band games on your iOS system, then the only way to make sure you can keep them and their DLC is to sync them with iCloud. Otherwise, the games will be available locally on your iOS system only as long as you keep them installed.
