What is SimCity BuildIt, Anyway?

Posted by Rob Rich on October 10th, 2014

SimCity BuildIt has been teased here and there, but specific details have been a bit sparse. That is, until now.

We recently had the chance to ask EA Mobile’s Vice President and General Manager, Jason Willig, some questions about the series’ new mobile outing. I was also able to get a live demo at EA’s recent Naughty & Nice event in New York, so I’ve got some serious impressions to share. After the questions, of course.

Wardens, rejoice! Heroes of Dragon Age, the visually stunning squad-based battle game that Electronic Arts released last year, has received a big update. Now players have access to the Fortify feature, which binds characters or creatures to heroes in your squad and in-turn ups their stats. EA has also improved the Consume ability to add new fortify slots to upgrade your units.

Best of all, now Heroes of Dragon Age offers ally codes. Now you no longer have to wait to battle someone before asking them to join you. Players can send a unique code to their friends to find them in the game. So grab your buddies, fortify some beasts, and battle your way to infamy.

Heroes of Dragon Age is available on the App Store for free.

Pricing Games on the App Store - Premium isn't Dead, Freemium is Here to Stay, and it's Everybody's Fault

Posted by Rob Rich on February 25th, 2014

Ah, the Great App Store Pricing Debate. For years people have been arguing over the cost of mobile games. What constitutes “too much?” Where’s the line when it comes to free-to-play monetization techniques? Should developers have deep discounts and temporary giveaways? Should consumers simply expect everything to go on sale and wait accordingly?

The recent Dungeon Keeper debacle is a good example of this. Gamers and critics alike have railed against it for using various monetization techniques and associating itself with the classic PC strategy series, and many point to it as an unpleasant indication of where the video game industry (especially mobile) is headed. It’s an issue that’s almost as complicated as the initial Freemium vs. Premium debate; so let’s take a closer look at everything and try to make sense of it all.

Attention all Dragonborn-no, wait, wrong game. Attention all Chosen-nope, not that one either... Attention all Wardens! Yeah, that's the one!

Heroes of Dragon Age has recently been updated to include a new player-versus-player mode, allowing players from across the globe to fight it out with opposing teams for rare banners, even rarer rewards, and the ability to rub their success in everyone else's face. In addition to the more permanent PvP update, you can also get your hands on Slave Fenris, who is apparently a rare warrior that can induce stun on opponents, for free until February 18 as a sort of Valentine's Day show of appreciation. It's kind of twisted when you stop and think about it, actually.

Anyway the update for Heroes of Dragon Age is up now. And don't forget to grab your elf while you're at it!

Dungeon Keeper’s iOS outing is most definitely not the PC classic we all remember, but as a regular old freemium game it’s actually quite enjoyable.

Part of a genre where every strategic battle title begins to look familiar, Heroes of Dragon Age separates itself with highly detailed artwork and gameplay to match. However, initial long load times and semi-auto gameplay might put some off.

FIFA 14 is iOS-Bound and Will Be Free-to-Play When it Releases This Fall

Posted by Rob Rich on August 30th, 2013

Get ready to play some real football!

EA Sports is bringing FIFA 14 to iOS for free this fall. It's going to be packed, too. Over 600 teams from 30 leagues, online multiplayer, and an all new set of touch controls. It'll also feature the popular "FIFA Ultimate Team" (FUT) mode, which will let players pick their own play style, manage their own team, and compete to earn coins in order to improve everything. And if that isn't enough, EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day will add an extra layer of realism to your games by adding in-game stories pulled straight from the real world such as injuries and suspensions.

Three premium game modes (Manager Mode, Tournament Mode, and Kickoff Mode) are also available for any players looking to "upgrade their game." Sounds cool, right? Well FIFA 14 will be coming to the App Store for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch this fall. Presumably around the time its console big brother releases in late September, but it's just a guess so don't quote me on that!
