Re: Review: Castles of Mad King Ludwig

You know what else is (unreasonably) hot in the board gaming world? Splendor. Yet when was the last time anyone's talked about the app? Lack of multiplayer can kill a game that was designed for multiplayer.
I need the awesome button for this one.

Re: Review: Castles of Mad King Ludwig

Board game enthusiasts clearly like to play with others, but Bézier noted that they rarely did so with the Suburbia app This is a bit of a cop-out given that the Suburbia multiplayer was such a mess. Ha - I copied that same sentence to post similarly. Suburbia mp was atrociously unplayable, so no o...

Re: Castles of Mad King Ludwig Due to Arrive Tomorrow

Im crushed this doesnt have online multiplayer, but given how long it took them to squash the multiplayer bugs in suburbia, I guess I can understand their reluctance to do that again They still haven't quashed all the bugs, unless I've been bitten by one that hasn't hit many people. I still can't d...

Agreed. I love the physical Suburbia and was very excited for the app... but those bugs....

Re: Review: Fallen London

I am still playing FL via iPad app. I will in all likelihood buy another month's pass in June as an 'Exceptional Friend'. For all my enthusiasm, Geigerm is essentially correct: the actual mechanisms in play do not differ greatly from other F2P apps in as much you spend a limited number of daily act...

Re: Review: Fallen London

The iOS version was hanging on the 'checking for content updates' screen for me, so I used the browser version this weekend. Blimey, that's an ugly and clunky experience. I was pleased when the app started working again so I could go back. The design and appearance is so much better. Yes, there are...

Good review, but not sure when it was written - the app updated last week and fixed two of the issues Tof raises, specifically the long load time and lack of manual sync.

Re: Sentinels of the Multiverse coming to a phone near you

Sentinels is one of those aberrations where on paper I should love the game and never want to play anything else but in practice I just cannot get in to it. I have the cardboard version and the iOS season pass. This is one that I've played exclusively solo so maybe if I actually had a social life o...

I've enjoyed every single one of their releases... although I have to admit to never finishing a single one. Love the graphics too - they take me back to playing Ultima once upon a time!
