WWE 2K will be available this spring for $7.99.
Today might not be the first day of spring - although you would think it's still the middle of winter with the snow we've been getting in NYC - but 2K is still celebrating the changing of the seasons with a pretty impressive sale.
There aren't all that many price drops to go around, but I think the quality makes up for the lack in quantity. Or just XCOM. Just XCOM being on sale is enoguh. The rest is gravy.
Here's what you can get, and for how much:
- XCOM: Enemy Within- $4.99
- Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 - $4.99
- BioShock- $2.99
- NBA 2K15 - $2.99
- NHL 2K - $2.99
Does anything on that list tickle your fancy? Personally I'd jump on XCOM if I didn't already own it (like three times over).
Trying to decide if this particular space empire expansions sim is worth your time? Check out our Sid Meier’s Starships review!
Sid Meier's Starships is a pretty great game in its own right, but it doesn't do a very good job of helping new players get acclimated to its systems - or its star systems (bah-dum-TSHHH). That's why we've taken it upon ourselves to cover some of the basics, a few of the things you won't learn about in-game unless you dig through the menus, and some strategies that will hopefully keep your fleet mobile and allow you to dominate the galaxy.
- Keep it simple - For your first time out, don’t bother messing around with things like map size, difficulty, or victory conditions. There’s no shame in reducing the number of opponents, either.
- The Purity Faction is the most beginner friendly - None are necessarily the best, of course, but Purity’s ability to earn double rewards will really come in handy for newbies.
- Choose Bolivar or Fielding as your leader - There might be six other leaders to choose from, but these two are the most straightforward and will make the most sense to beginners.
- Make liberal use of the Advice button - The little “info” button to the far left of the row of icons at the bottom of the screen will be your only friend in learning how to play Starships - aside from this guide, that is. Try to tap it every time you’re ready to take a new action as its suggestions should point you in the right direction.
- Go out and explore - You won’t have much of a chance at any sort of victory if you don’t leave your home planet. So find those navigation lines that point to new planets, and get to visiting!
2K has released new content for WWE SuperCard. The update adds the Fusion Chamber, which allows players to merge lower-ranking cards to create 48 new super-powerful Fusion cards.
There will be eight rarity levels of recipes for merging, from Common to Survivor. You'll also be able to purchase new card packs, Ultra Rare, Epic, and Legendary WWE Divas to expand your lineup.
You can download WWE SuperCard for free on the App Store.
2K, Turtle Rock Studios, and Cat Daddy Games have launched their companion app for the 4 vs 1 shooter Evolve. The app, titled Evolve: Hunters Quest, is a Match-3 puzzle game that connects to your main game and lets you join a team of hunters as they explore the planet Shear. The game has over 100 missions that will earn you Mastery Points to level up your characters with and can also be used in the main Evolve game as well. By playing Evolve: Hunters Quest, you can find and unlock art from Evolve and let you watch replays of your online multiplayer matches.
Evolve: Hunters Quest is available from the App Store now and it's a free download.
The new game is part of the Sid Meier series, and specifically expands upon Civilization: Beyond Earth's science fiction universe. The game is described as a turn-based strategy game that makes the player the fleet commander ultimately in pursuit of peace.
Sid Meier (who serves as creative development chief at Firaxis) talks about experiences with regards to the new game. “When designing Starships, I was intrigued by the idea of exploring the next chapter in the story of Civilization: Beyond Earth. What happens after we colonize our new home and eventually build starships to take to the stars? What has become of our long-lost brothers and sisters from the planet Earth?” he says. “My goal was to create an experience that focuses on starship design and combat within a universe filled with interstellar adventure, diplomacy, and exploration.”
There's no word on pricing yet, but Sid Meier's Starships is scheduled to drop in "early 2015."
John Cena and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can be found among the sixty new cards added to the game, with Manager Support cards and cards themed around the new WWE 2K15 also added. Competing cards also have 24 new animations, with the new card rarity 'Survivor' bringing the total number of rarity levels up to eight.
Furthermore, rewards and drop rates in Exhibition matches have been rebalanced, with players now having an increased chance of getting higher level cards from the draft board. Card energy limits have also been upped and the performance of People's Champion Challenge rewards screens and the Card Catalog have also been improved.
