Tag: Order and Chaos Online »
Gameloft’s juggernaut of a mobile phone MMO has just hit the 1 year-old mark. While celebrating the occasion with a huge update isn’t exactly out of the ordinary it’s still certainly something worth talking about. Especially because it includes a number of additions as well as one particular feature players have been clamoring for over the past twelve months.
The list of new stuff is fairly extensive. Various bug fixes are to be expected, as well as some new quests. Players will also receive a free gift box, a special Thank You letter, access to new items and pets, and will be able to mess around with the new Lottery system. Those who have been playing for over three months will also get a special Anniversary pet. And it wouldn’t be a proper celebration without some flagrant fashions (i.e. new clothes for NPCs) and fireworks that can be purchased as well as simply viewed in all their explosive glory. Last but certainly not least, Gameloft has given the fans what they want and included 3G support. So now Order and Chaos can be enjoyed pretty much anywhere.
The festivities have already begun, so make sure to get on that downloading. Everyone else who isn’t already playing can download it now for $6.99, which includes a free 3 months of play ($0.99/month after that).
Just bought a new iPad? Congratulations. Sure, tweets may come in clearer than ever, and videos at 1080p quality, but what's the real way to show off that beautiful new 2048x1536 screen? With games, of course! And how about some online games to take advantage of the LTE option available? Yes, please! Here's ten titles that show off just how crisp the new iPad's Retina Display looks.
Mass Effect: Infiltrator: This Mass Effect spinoff, developed by Iron Monkey Studios (Dead Space for iOS), has just been updated with iPad Retina Display support. It's now pushing over three times the pixels as the console Mass Effect 3. Our own Rob Rich called it "the best cover shooter on the App Store," which makes it a great and stunning way to rebound from the polarizing ending of the console game.
Order & Chaos Online: Gameloft's World of Warcraft-alike has been updated to support the new iPad. That's right, now it's possible to fight for the forces of order or the warriors of chaos on a screen resolution higher than many monitors playing WoW, from anywhere on earth thanks to LTE speed.
Real Racing 2 HD: This was one of the first games to support 1080p output from the iPad 2's HDMI port. A lesser person would have been satisfied with this high amount of definition. For those unsatisfied snobs, now Firemint's racing game supports the new iPad's Retina Display. If this isn't defined highly enough, perhaps it's time to start racing for real.
Touchgrind BMX: Illusion Labs' Retina Display support is no illusion, as their multitouch stunt biking game has full support for the new iPad. Show off fantastic tricks at fantastic display. Skateboarding is still not a crime, but the original Touchgrind has not yet been updated for the new iPad.
Monsters Ate My Condo: Enough of the three-dimensional games. This frantic, fast-paced puzzler from PikPok and Adult Swim Games now has iPad Retina Display support. Feeding delicious condos to giant monsters has never looked better. This is probably the only game to involve feeding condos to monsters, but it's still gonna look really good on the new iPad.
Infinity Blade 2: When Apple's announced a shiny new Retina Display product, Infinity Blade has been there. While the new entry shown at the new iPad press conference, Infinity Blade Dungeons, is not available yet, the latest entry in the series now has shinier graphics in anticipation of its new content.
Galaxy on Fire 2 HD: While the galaxy is not literally on fire, because there's no air, Fishlabs' space warfare series is looking better than ever on the new iPad. This version of the game was designed to take advantage of the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S when it came out, and it's ready to handle the latest and greatest iPad and its Retina Display.
Flight Control Rocket: That was fast. Right after the release of this new entry in Firemint's legendary path management series, it got an update to support the Retina Display. So, for those who bought the game on Thursday, fearing that they would have to worry about the game looking ugly on their new iPad? Their worst fears have gone unrealized!
Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy: How could I leave off the game that Apple themselves used to show off the new iPad? Battle friends online in absurd resolution, and at absurd speed anywhere thanks to the LTE connectivity on the cellular models.
Diamond Dash: This colorful, fast-paced puzzle game has gotten an update for the Retina Display. Not only is it possible to play against Facebook friends, it's possible to play against them at a higher resolution and pixel density than they are! Unless they get the new iPad too. At that point, all bets are off.
