Hey guys so I got the iPad 10.5 Pro 256 GB last week and hoping to actually get some good gaming done on it since it’s actually big enough to support it.

Thus far I have...

  • Infinity Blade 3
  • Stranger Things
  • Into The Dead 2
  • Assassins Creed Identity

I have Injustice 2 and Hearthstone but thinking of getting rid of them.

Is there any good premium or free games you guys can suggest? Pref those that would be good on an iPad? I’m thinking RPGs and Action games, maybe shooters if it works well enough. I saw that White Day is on here but unsure If it’s worth because of the PS4 version out now.

Maybe referring to the fact that three of them are fully clothed while one is wearing bikini armor.
Lol!!!
Sorry I’m a bit slow today (slower than usual).
She is totally BADASS tough.
She learned a spell recently called PAIN WORD that LITERALLY transform an enemy in dust with a super creepy sound that I love.

Too bad that, as you noticed, she is a bit fragile....if anyone gets near her she is almost certainly dead.
That’s why at least an Empire Captain never leaves her side ;)

I actually think she is the leader of the group.

Congrats! That’s wild.

What are your thoughts on the new AppStore design as a developer?

Still trying to work out the impact exactly from the data.

Gut feel is the individual featuring slots are better, but there are less visible slots than before, which might create a "rich get richer, poor get poorer" sort of situation.

Apple is also making some "interesting" featuring decisions as well. There are a LOT of very old games getting pole position. Will be interesting to see whether they maintain that over time, or whether it is just something they are doing in the short term for the transition to the new format.

Started WQ2 last night. It's really good. I already like it more then gen the first one. Two questions: how do I heal serious injuries and should I just keep going forward? I'm on the 4th or 5th icon on the map and I'm not sure if I should go backwards looking for a healer

Would love to hear an update on your thoughts further down the road. Thanks for sharing!

I *think* leveling up heals serious injuries.

Levelling up cures all serious injuries as colinp said!
It’s the cross icon in some cities.

How important is it to level up? Should I be waiting until I have serious injuries before doing it...?
It's super important, but that really depends on your play style and how difficult you feel the game is.

I would generally level up as soon as I can, but this can happen:

You level up spending all your money AND XP...then in the following dungeon you are knocked out.
You can get money with other members but you still have to get XP, and sometimes it's not trivial with a broken arm.

When you level up, one of these things can happen:

1) single stat increase
2) HP increase
3) 1 more slot
4) one more AP

All of them are beneficial, some are better than others depending on your actual situation/how many skills/items.

That said...you won't get anywhere without leveling up...you will need every single slot, AP, HP and stat later on.

That's fantastic! You don't see devs do that much these days.

Also I like that Gold weekend offer you guys have, very generous.

Currently enjoying Stardew Valley on Switch and I have to say, it's a crime there isn't a mobile port. If there's one game perfect for the platform, this is it.

I still think they will port it eventually. Too bad I'll probably be done with the game by then.

A port of the PC/console action platformer ICEY just released for $2.99.

ICEY by X.D. Network Inc.
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/icey/id1271620263?mt=8

It’s gotten pretty good reviews and I almost considered buying it on PS4 but going to grab it on iOS now.

This week has just been insane!!!
If I remember right, this game has a sale on Steam where you can get a Steam Link for $1 if you get this game with it.

Looked at screenshots and didn't really seem to be my kind of game, but I'll check videos before I know for sure.

Just looked on Steam and you’re right. That’s a pretty damn good deal if you’re in the market for a Steam Link. Usually those alone go for like $30-$50. You can get both with ICEY for under $10.

BTW, even on Steam 92% of over 12,000 reviews of the game are positive. Anxious to check it out myself.

Oh, wow, I didn’t expect Icey to come to mobile. I had been thinking about getting it on PC but this is the better deal

I don’t think I’m exaggerating to say that ICEY has the best side scrolling melee combat on iOS. Even better than Dust with some insane combos. Soooooo satisfying. It’s pulling me away from WHQ2. It’s that good!

Post apocalyptic shooter The Sun released for $1.99. Looks promising.
