Champ Man 15 Unveiled By Square Enix

Posted by on August 8th, 2014

Square Enix has announced that their free-to-play football management game Champ Man will be receiving a new version for the new season – Champ Man 15. This new edition will allow players to manage one of 440 real clubs from 23 leagues from around the world in a realistic season set-up. The game will also come with up-to-date team, player and competition data, new training systems, and more tactical options.

Kenji Hisatsune, Vice President of Global Mobile Contents for Square Enix West, had this to say on the newest edition in the Champ Man series:

Champ Man continues to evolve with each season. We’re not looking to continuously make the same game. We listen to our fans and how we can improve their experience. The series is one of the longest running of its kind and we are very pleased to announce the new release for this football season. Champ Man 15 combines the depth and control you would expect from a management simulation with the speed and accessibility of a mobile game. We’ve improved the match engine to allow for a greater variety of chances, enhanced commentary, additional formations and tactical options. We hope our fans enjoy it!

Champ Man 15 will be free to download when it launches sometime soon.

Foursquare Update Makes App All New, Points People to Locations They’ll Like

Posted by on August 7th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

The long-awaited update to the Foursquare app has arrived, turning it into a personalized location finder for places you’ll likely enjoy going to. Upon opening the app, users will be asked to pick a menu from around 10,000 ‘tastes,’ which range from ‘Specialty Cocktails’ to ‘Comfortable Seats’. From then on, the app will point users towards places it thinks they’ll enjoy.

Alongside this users can still follow fellow users, be they experts in a particular category or other people they know, and leave ‘tips’ on locations they’ve been to. Tips also tie into the new ‘expertise’ system, which adds recognition for users who leave useful tips, allowing them to become ‘experts’ for a specific category or neighborhood.

The updated Foursquare app is available on the App Store now and is free to download.

When it comes to suburban life simulations, The Sims pretty much wrote the book. In The Sims Freeplay, we get to see a mobile-centric version of the game that is equal parts enjoyable and complex. Here are a few tips to get folks going on the natural path to building a happy, healthy cyber-community.

Currency

2014-07-23 18.02.59
The first thing one probably wants to understand is the currency system. There are several different tenders that can be used to make purchases or otherwise enhance the life of your Sims. Within the game, the main form of currency is referred to – naturally – as “Simoleons.” Simoleons are probably most like real-life money, and can be earned by having Sims do things like going to work. Established properties can garner Simoleons at intervals, so it pays to “invest” and upgrade these properties. There are a few easter egg Simoleon earning activities as well, like pets digging for them.

Another currency type is the “Social Point.” This can be earned in neighboring towns by doing tasks such as practicing fire fighting. This encourages interaction with other players, as it’s easier to get fellow players to invest in an item necessary to get Social Points. Social Points can be spent on items in the game store.

2014-07-23 18.00.23“Lifestyle Points” can be gained by completing quests, increasing the town’s value, leveling-up, or watching and viewing special offers. They can also be purchased with real money. Lifestyle Points can be used to purchase items and speed up tasks.

The game also incorporates experience points, which allow characters to level-up and have access to more content.

2014-07-23 17.59.37
One of the best ways to accumulate cash is to work. Consistently. On that note, getting promoted helps earn more faster. Building in moderation also helps maximize reserves. Happy Sims are better able to earn spendables, so keeping Sims inspired by ensuring their needs are met.

Even the simple act of gardening also leads to supplemental game cash. Several “natural” tasks like checking mail can net small amounts that add up.

Careers

There are quite a few professions to choose from, ranging from Real Estate Agent to politician, and a Sim’s career can be enhanced by “practicing” the job. Practicing makes the Sim better, and helps them get promoted. Sims can max out in careers, so the progress is not limitless.

Hobbies

2014-07-23 17.57.59
Hobbies are great tools for gaining experience and limited content. The availability of hobbies to a specific character are generally restricted based on what one has unlocked and the age of a character. In other words, after the age requirement is met, one might have to do achieve/build something to be able to perform that hobby.

The biggest overall tip is to exhibit patience. The game runs in real-time, so there is always the temptation to use Lifestyle Points to expedite the action. Those Lifestyle Points could probably be best used elsewhere. Along those same lines, rushing to become a real estate mogul sounds logical – in the real world. In FreePlay, restraint is sometimes a good thing.

A Dark Room may not be much to look at, but behind the simple menus and walls of text is an unexpectedly involved (and super-bleak) adventure. And from now until Monday morning (8/4), it’s totally free.

If you’ve been holding off on checking out A Dark Room for whatever reason, well then now is the time to fix that. Regardless of how off-putting the lack of graphics may or may not be, it’s a free download. And “as grandpa Alfonse always said, ‘anything free is worth saving up for.’”

You can (and should) grab A Dark Room off the App Store now for free.
