If you enjoy Match-3 RPGs, Hero Emblems has so far been one of the best I've played.

https://itunes.apple.com/pl/app/id645797558?mt=8

You have a party of 4 characters (warrior, paladin, wizard, priest) whose powers are triggered by each of the 4 gem colors. Longer matches activate better abilities and create skill boosting gems. Battles are fought as a series of 1-6 encounters during which the ending board state flows into the next battle.  So saving up skill boosting gems is critical to beating some of the final encounters in a battle. Makes for some interesting choices.

Requires a little bit of grinding before big fights to up your levels, but hasn't been bad. Nothing atypical for an RPG in that respect.

Art is detailed and charming.

trade it in now. Buy something you really want to play.

Digital.

Also, realistically, probably can only put in a few hours a week, and will lose interest long before I'm grinding out shards for my lvl 32 whatchamacannon. Which, as I understand it, is where most of the sourness comes in.

Kickstarted this and played on release.

Meh. It's ok and has some neat ideas, but I was underwhelmed overall.

Anyone just getting started on this?

Got it along with an Xbox One this Xmas.

Been playing Faif for iOS.

You can play in Unity here. http://www.beavl.com/faif/

Very attractive Dungeon Raid style game with a gambling mechanic thrown in with the line matching.

Play Store / Itunes

I cancelled my preorder. Just too many other games to play first. I'll pick it up during the summer sometime.

Post about it a lot so I can play vicariously through this thread.

Yeah, they keep insisting it's phishing and social engineering.  But they never say WHO is being phished and engineered.  Are people still conning the Microsoft help line?

Anyway, the problem seems to be with Microsoft NOT users.

Neuroshima Hex, on the other hand, I've played for several dozen hours, since the hard AI can still give me a challenge and occasionally win.  It also seems to play fairly human-like, with clever combo moves and few "wtf is it thinking" moments.

AI in that game kicks my ass. I'm still working the puzzle spin-off, hoping I'll be a better player when I'm done with it.

Think of it as the Angry Birds of console shooters.  It's easily accessible, enough of a household name for the general population to feel comfortable buying it and talking about it, and although it's not the best at anything in its genre, it's good enough for people to not know any better.

I agree with this. It's the Madden of the FPS world. Except it has competition.

Sorry. The Madden metaphor fits CoD much better. Massive sales, yearly franchise with few changes year to year and never addressing the fundamental issues.

And I do need to avoid the aforementioned button mashing during combat.  I think there's a trick involved, but I'm not getting it yet.  It sounds like there are some combos that play off precise timing when pressing the attack buttons, so I don't think the devs intended it to be a complete button masher.

Get the combat upgrade called "Critical Hit", I think it is. It gives you X2 for the combo meter when you time your strikes correctly.  As a side effect, it gives you feedback on whether you are timing your strikes optimally.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Batman:Arkham City due this October! on: October 19, 2011, 01:36:04 PM
Do the first 4 VR missions as soon as they appear. That item is essential.

After that they get harder, I don't know what the upgrades are if any.

I don't really understand what's going on here. If people are using your account to download DLC, how are they benefiting from this? Isn't it just your account that gets this stuff? Do they just play with your account until they get caught, and then get left with nothing? And if they transfer ownership of purchases to other accounts somehow, can't Microsoft just identify which accounts are receiving the stuff and lock them?

My understanding is that the DLC for FIFA 12 are like trading card packs with randomized players.  These can then be traded to other people.   Check ebay for FIFA 12 auctions.

I believe that we're seeing so many Live hacks now because FIFA 12 is essentially allowing MS points to be converted into cash.

FIFA may not be the source of the breach, but FIFA is what's making Live accounts with attached credit cards a monetizable resource for account hackers.

BLOPS was my least favorite CoD but the best selling, so I don't know.  Apparently, I can't judge these things.

Thanks for the tips guys. I will try again later this evening.

Question. Remember the guy who we saved in the Church before fighting the Gargoyle? Well i ran into him again just below the fireshrine (or whatever) and decided to kill him......  Did I mess up? There was a tip left just before him that said beware of prisoner.
I got a ring and something else.

Spoiler for Hiden:
if you don't kill him he does some nasty stuff and you have to go after him to fix it, but you get his armor as well after you catch him.  I haven't done that yet.  Stuck on f'n gargoyles last night.[/stuck]

Got about 40 minutes in last night after all.  I'm having trouble getting used to the controls as I played Demon Souls on the PS3.  I hope the 360 control scheme grows on me as right now I'm hitting all the wrong buttons.  

Initial impressions are that this is a new chapter in the Demon Souls franchise...and that's fine by me.  

The moment I knew this?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Manage to figure out I'm supposed to run from Asylum Demon and finally make my way through the side passages only to emerge onto a ledge overlooking said Demon.  While looking down and thinking to myself, "There must be a way to kill him while I'm safe up here." the Asylum Demon performs an NBA level jump shot to my ledge, killing me in the process.   icon_eek

Same thing happened to me. You need to be fast.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Read online that if you DO manage to kill him with your broken ass sword the first time you meet him, you get his giant hammer.  Oh also, when you are on the ledge, if you look down, you can see the demon staring right back up at you.
