Test your card skills as Version 3.7 shines a light on Genshin Impact’s TCG

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 15th, 2023

Genshin Impact has been bitten by the duelling bug, as Version 3.7 is all about the card games. Genius Invokation TCG takes centre stage as a tournament comes to Teyvat, bringing with it new game modes and new cards, all delivered by our new recruitable courier.

Get the catnip ready, as our newest recruit is the Nekomata from Inazuma; Kirara. She is a Dendro sword user, however, she prefers to instead attack with her claws and youkai powers. Her Elemental skills allow to her create a shield with a flying kick, or transform it into an Urgent Neko Parcel for more speed, thanks to her job as a first-class courtier.

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 12th, 2023

Plarium, the developer behind Raid: Shadow Legends, has dropped the latest trailer for the upcoming limited animation series; Raid: Call of the Arbiter. The just-shy of 60-second video gives us a sneaky peak at the plot ahead of the premier on May 18th.

Raid: Shadow Legends is probably one of the most well-known mobile games out there, from its amusing adverts to sponsoring just about every channel on YouTube. It has built up a giant following, and if you play the game you will see why thanks to its captivating turn-based combat and a huge roster of champions to collect.

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 11th, 2023

As much fun as it is to play Mattel163’s UNO! Mobile solo against the other players, it has always been a personal preference of mine to play the Duo mode. If you share this mindset, then get excited for the upcoming UNO! Mobile Wildcard Series: Duos Invitational.

As that incredibly wordy title suggests, multiple teams of two will be pitted against each other in a tournament to claim the top spot. Eight pairs will be battling it out for the first Duos Champion title, as well as a cash prize of $4,444.00, or as some of your maths boffins have figured out, $2,222.00 each.

Apple Arcade is welcoming two new games from developer Young Horses

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 5th, 2023

It is a good time to be an Apple Arcade subscriber, with two games from smash-hit developers Young Horses landing on the platform soon. If you haven’t heard of them, you have certainly heard of the debt gem that well and truly put them on the map: Octodad.

Whilst you may have heard about Young Horses from their Free Range collection, which released some free side projects such as IndependANT and Snake Date, but no doubt the release of Octodad: Dadliest Catch in 2014, the endlessly entertaining, physics-defying adventure game.

Gaming's most flippant protagonist joins Street Fighter: Duel in Devil May Cry 5 collaboration

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 4th, 2023

Street Fighter: Duel is answering the age-old question; why would you not bring a sword and gun to a fistfight, thanks to the latest crossover with Devil May Cry 5. Honour is out the window as the over-optimistic protagonist of the storied franchise prepares to cut through anyone opposing him.

A mysterious tree has appeared in Duel, bearing a striking resemblance to the Qilphoth from Devil May Cry 5. M Bison has rushed to the site to try and harness the dark power, with Ryu, Chun-Li, and the rest of the World Warriors following behind. The group is bolstered by the arrival of Dante, who comes with a sensational set of skills.

Don your swimming bands and prepare for a new era in Waven

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 3rd, 2023

If you listen to science, the world will be mostly underwater in a few decades, so why not practise early with Waven, the new tactical RPG from Ankama? Developed by Ankama, the minds behind the frankly brilliant DOFUS and WAKFU, the first trailer for this upcoming adventure has dropped and looks fantastic.

Waven starts you off at the dawn of a new era, when an unknown character came down with a bad case of explosions, blew up, and caused a huge tsunami that nearly wiped out the whole world. You will have to pick your hero, gear up with spells and equipment, and then sail from island to island, belting out your favourite sea shanty. That bit is surely mandatory.

Omega Strikers guide - Tips for beginners

Posted by Campbell Bird on May 2nd, 2023

Since the official release of Omega Strikers last week I've been playing a heck of a lot of it. In that time, I've unlocked all of the strikers, played a good amount of all the game modes, and ascended out of the lowest ranks of the game's competitive mode.

I'm still by no means an expert, but there are a few things I've picked up that have really elevated my game and could possibly raise yours as well.

Boxing Star has introduced a new way to take on your opponents in latest update

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 2nd, 2023

FourThirtyThree Inc, the rather peculiarly named developer, has announced the latest update to its global sports game Boxing Star. It is time to gear up with your best players and test your mettle in the gauntlet of the Battle Stadium.

This new mode is called the Battle Stadium, and it sounds like it can be quite the tactical showcase. You must choose two characters to face off against a variety of NPCs, with the goal of defeating as many as you can within the designated rounds.

LifeAfter's latest update aims to put the fun in fungi

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 1st, 2023

Just because the world has ended and the apocalypse is upon you, does not mean there is no room for fun, as NetEase has shown with its latest update to their survival game LifeAfter. Escape Park brings a little tinge of Zombieland to the bleakness, and it is much welcomed.

As you stumble through the wastelands one day, you happen across a mysterious amusement park, seemingly frozen through time. It's colourful decorations and the gleeful atmosphere is a stark contrast to the despair around it, but why not make the most of it and turn your hand to some design work?

Everything you need to know right now about Omega Strikers

Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: PUCKING EXCELLENCE :: Read Review »

At the end of last year, I had the opportunity to test out Omega Strikers while it was still in beta. Fast forward to now and the game is officially out with some marked improvements and changes. It'll take some time to solidify thoughts on the game into a fully-fledged review, but until then I can share some impressions and recommendations about this exciting new kind of multiplayer game.

If you aren't up-to-date on what Omega Strikers is, it's a 3v3 competitive game about a fake sport that most closely resembles hockey. Teams all control hero characters with special abilities that they can use to hit a puck around (or each other) as they try score goals. In press releases it's commonly described as "Rocket-League-of-Legends," which is accurate enough, though I'd say a more apt comparison would be to games like Windjammers and Pokémon Unite.
