It’s like an unholy cross between Farmville, Tamagotchi, and Pokemon, and I am addicted. I check my cats all day, and take pictures, and yet, it’s a nothing kind of game. Sheesh.
This always happens: we visit family, someone is playing some random game that we aren’t playing. So we try it out. Next thing you know we are playing and playing and the person (or people) who told us to play isn’t really anymore.
Puzzles & Dragons — actually it’s pretty fun, or at least the orb spinning and team making anyway. I personally do not enjoy managing my monster box. But I didn’t much like that for Pokemon either, though it was somewhat easier. Luckily Yut manages mine for me. :)
I am late with this one, cos it’s from years ago. But anyway, it’s new to me.
In response to a Straight Male Gamer complaining about a male character flirting with his male character in Dragon Age 2 because he thinks homosexuality is disgusting, David Gaider from BioWare wrote one of the most cogent explanations of privilege I can remember reading:
“…the truth is that privilege always lies with the majority. They’re so used to being catered to that they see the lack of catering as an imbalance.”
Ticket to Ride Pocket is free right now! It’s a relatively light fun board game made into an app for the iPhone although Yut got it for the IPad and it works fine. Anyway it’s super fun! And includes multiplayer! So even if it’s not free I’d recommend it but it’s a no brainer at free. Go get it!
We started playing right after dinner; so far I’ve lost twice and won once. Boo! Wait that sounds lame… right after dinner, each of us on our iOS device to play games “together”. Well I still had fun.
Sunday 12 February, edited to add:It’s 99 cents now (still on sale but no longer free), still totally worth it. Good implementation and love the multiplayer.
