Pathfinder Adventures moving to PC/Mac in 2 weeks

May 31, 2017 David Neumann 5

iOS Universal, Android, PC/Mac • Close your eyes and empty your mind, we’re going on a journey into the past. Falling…falling we watch the time pass by until we reach…yesterday. Oh, right, it was only yesterday when we announced that Pathfinder Adventures would be coming to PC/Mac some time down the road. Anyway, it turns out that road is a very short one with Obsidian today confirming that Pathfinder Adventures would be coming to PC/Mac on June 15.

Pathfinder Adventures finally getting new content, just not THAT new content

May 30, 2017 David Neumann 5

iOS Universal, Android, PC/Mac (coming soon) • Back in December, Obsidian capped off the first Adventure Path for their bug-laden-yet-nearly-perfect card game, Pathfinder Adventures. Even before the final chapter was released, there were questions about the future of Pathfinder Adventures. Would it begin a new Adventure Path? Would there be new characters? Would the bugs ever get fully squashed? It’s nearly six months later and we’ve not heard an answer to any of those questions…wait for it…until this weekend. BOOM!

Do we want Missile Cards on our iOS devices? Yes! You can help make it shiny.

May 25, 2017 David Neumann 4

iOS • There have been plenty of great card game releases thus far in 2017, but one that wasn’t on my radar until a few weeks ago was Missile Cards from Nathan Meunier. A turn-based mashup of 1980’s Missile Command and 2015’s Card Crawl, Missile Cards has everything it takes to be a fantastic mobile title. Unfortunately, it’s only for PC right now, but that’s changing. In fact, it’s coming to iOS very, very soon.

The Little Game That Could, Onirim, gets bigger

May 25, 2017 David Neumann 6

iOS Universal, Android • Onirim is a truly fantastic port of a physical card game but, let’s admit, it has some hills to climb. One is that it’s solitaire only, which immediately makes it feel like more of a time waster than a serious strategic affair. Next, it has to compete with the likes of Race for the Galaxy which just happened to release around the same time and might be the greatest card game you can play on mobile right now. Lastly, Asmodee only released the Onirim base game with no expansions which, I’ve heard, really make the game shine. Two of those aren’t Onirim’s fault, but that last one is. Luckily, Asmodee is listening and the first expansion for Onirim arrived today. Better yet, it’s free.

Pixel Tactics Online is basically Pixel Tactics, but online

May 22, 2017 David Neumann 5

PC, Mac, iOS, Android • I’ve never played Pixel Tactics from Level 99 Games due to the fact that the tabletop card-battler is two-player only. Two player games became an endangered species at my house the minute we decided to have more than one kid. Lucky for me, Level 99 is bringing the game to both laptops and mobile later this year, so I’ll be able to finally give it a go without ignoring one of my kids. Instead, I can now ignore them all.

Upcoming update to bring friendly quests and deck sharing to Hearthstone

May 17, 2017 David Neumann 1

iOS, Android, PC, Mac • It’s been awhile since I’ve been on the Hearthstone bandwagon. I know it’s got polish on top of its polish and that, as far as digital CCGs go, it’s still a pretty great game. Still, there’s something that drove me away. I think it was the bloat of expansion after expansion and the focus on esports that made me feel like casual play wasn’t really something Hearthstone did well anymore. I just don’t have enough time to research a game in order to play it well. Also, I have Race for the Galaxy now, thank you very much. Still, it’s a big money maker for Blizzard and, as such, they keep showing it love. In a few weeks it will be getting a major update that adds a couple of new features that might make it easier for old farts like me to get back into it.

Star Realms getting a makeover and new expansion, Colony Wars

May 15, 2017 David Neumann 10

iOS, Android, PC, Mac • Star Realms is one of those cardboard-to-digital ports that everyone seems to love. Even if deck-building isn’t your favorite mechanism, Star Realms just does everything so right that you feel the need to keep it installed on your iPad. Games can be played quickly, the entire game is remarkably cheap without any boosters to constantly buy, and it just feels like it was made for digital from the get-go. That said, it’s about to feel a lot different. The Star Realms you know and love is getting a complete makeover, and it’s coming on Wednesday.

Review: Race for the Galaxy

May 3, 2017 David Neumann 57

iOS Universal, Android • When 2017 started I had already been girding my loins in preparation for a certain card game that was originally released in cardboard form back in 2007. Yes, 2017 was to be the year that I finally left my family behind and started the cult of Vlaada, continuously playing the digital version of Through the Ages. Things have changed. While I’m still planning on abandoning my family for a 2007 card game, it looks like it might be Race for the Galaxy instead of the aforementioned civ builder. RftG is out and, yes, it’s that good.

Review: Missile Cards

April 27, 2017 Nick Vigdahl 1

Windows, coming soon to iOS • YOU’VE PLAYED 5 hours. Nice of Steam to keep a tally of how much of your life you spend gaming, isn’t it? I don’t really need Steam to explain that crap-I-stayed-up-too-late-gaming-and-now-it-is-2AM feeling, though. I shouldn’t have started playing so late, but then again, I didn’t expect to spend five hours on Missile Cards, a game I had just installed earlier that day. Problem is, I just couldn’t stop.
