It sure seems like the card games are back at large now. Because honestly, i can´t even remember when there even existed this many card games on the video game market. But i don't mind really. Because some card games are really fun to play.
Just take Broken Arms Games iOS game "KaBoom Monsters" for example. It's bloody brilliant imo. I mean, even though KaBoom Monsters are easy to learn. It´s rather hard to master. And guess what? It´s all free-to-play! =)
So if you're into card games. Then you should most definitely check out KaBoom Monsters asap!
About KaBoom Monsters:
"KaBoom Monsters is a revolutionary fantasy strategic card game!
The game takes place against a backdrop of rich details and terrific graphics - in a fantasy world that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
The intuitive gameplay is backed up by a rich and immersive gaming experience. You create your own cards, develop your deck and jump into an epic single player campaign with a series of battles. KaBoom Monsters offers a unique card/object crafting system allowing you to pimp up your weapons, shields and add different objects to boost your deck."
It´s been a very, very long time since i saw Jake Armitage the last time. In fact, i haven't´t seen him since i played the Mega Drive version of Shadowrun back in the 90s. But out of nowhere, Jake showed up before my eyes. some what dead, some what alive.
I mean, the guy stepped out of a damn freezer of some sort. But Jake didn't seem to bother that much about that. He was more interested in taking care of "business" (that´s good ol Jake for ya). And even though it´s been ages since i´ve seen Jake in action, the guy still knows how to handle a gun.
Me, i´m more of a "shotgun blues" kind of guy. Anyhow, please enjoy part 3 of my Shadowrun Returns series people =)
I have seen quite a few 3D Roguelike games in my days. But i can´t say that i have seen that many randomly generated 3D Roguelike games for iOS and Android. But that's exactly what Cherry Games "Random Chance" are all about.
Being a 3D roguelike game i mean. And funny enough. The Random Chance trailer, made me think about "Simon the sorcerer". So that´s a good omen imo (at least when it comes to the first two titles in the Simon series).
So i might just give Random Chance a try =)
"Take quest in an epic environment that’s ever changing! Your girlfriend has been kidnapped by the Giant Wizard, and it’s your duty as a hero to find her back before it’s too late. But watch out, the Wizard has a giant army of henchman that are all out to sabotage your happiness… or not?"

I just heard the great news that Ubisoft will release their GTA/cyberpunk like game "Watch Dogs" by the end of May this year (PS3, PS4, PC and Xbox One). Because i was probably not the alone one, that thought that Watch Dogs would be delayed to the end of this year.
But i´m glad that i was wrong. Sadly enough though, there's no release date for the Wii-U version of Watch Dogs (it´s a TBA title at the moment). Oh well, at least "some" of us will be able to play Watch Dogs in a near future.
"The Watch_Dogs release date has been confirmed. Resuming Transmissions_ pic.twitter.com/1kWdfnSDlr" - Watch Dogs (Ubisoft), Via Twitter.
We made! We now got 20,000 followers on Twitter =) So O.J and i just wanna say a big thank you to everyone that supports us. And of course we want to give something back to the fans (you). So we will have a new giveaway on Twitter very, very soon.
We just have to figure out something nice to give away first (we got some options to chose from). Anyhow, the giveaway will start sometime next week. So keep an eye (or two) open for it!
And once again, thank you so much people!
These guys know how to bring on the Metal.
Italy has always (more or less) been a country that loves Metal and heavy music. I mean, Metal acts such as Pantera, Dio, Slayer, Ozzy, Iron Maiden and Iced Earth loves Italy (cuz the love for heavy music are really strong in Italy).
So i'm not that much surprised to hear some really good Italian Metal bands every now and then. And today was such a day. I'm most likely one of the very first people (outside Italy) to write about "Settimo Cerchio". They sound like a mix of Linkin Park and Damageplan.
Well, let´s just say that i love Settimo Cerchio already. And i really love that they sing in Italian too, cuz it sounds really cool imo. So i really hope that Settimo Cerchio will make it big in the near future. Because they really deserve it!
Not to mention the street gangs, the big Mega corporations and the dystopian feel of the world around you. And oh, did i mention that death lures around every corner? But that´s how a Shadowrun game should be. So this far i´m very pleased with the game, and yes, i play as a Shadowrunner/Street samurai.
I also noticed that my character (which i of course named "V-Act") looks a lot like Trent Reznor (the singer of Nine Inch Nails). But i don´t mind that, cuz i like NIN and Trent. Another thing that struck me while playing Shadowrun Returns, i could be wrong now though.
But i´m quite sure that you could not save when you feelt like it before. Cuz you had to reach a certain "savepoint", to be able to save your progress. Well, now you don´t have to worry about that anymore. Cuz now you are free to save when ever you feel like it =)
So with that said, please enjoy part 2 ("Death to traitors!") of my Shadowrun Returns series!
