Fallout Shelter Lunchbox Sale July 3-5 – 50% off on bundles

Fallout Shelter has been taking way too much of my time. I really don’t know why. It just gets so much right I think. But Bethesda has put lunch boxes on sale in the game at up to 75% off — here are the prices listed in the game and in effect for July 3-5 only.

1 Lunchbox – $0.99 (same)
5 Lunchboxes – $1.99 (60% off)
15 Lunchboxes – $4.99 (66% off)
40 Lunchboxes – $9.99 (75% off)

The % off listed in the in-game store is a little incorrect as that refers to price of the bundle versus buying a single lunchbox at $0.99. But the bundles are indeed 50% off of their normal price.

Nintendo Leaning Toward “Free To Start” Pricing for Mobile Games

In what could be read as a positive sign for free to play haters, Nintendo has talked a bit about pricing strategies for upcoming mobile games during a recent shareholders meeting.

Iwata then went into more detail about what he sees as the social issue of F2P games psychologically manipulating players and acknowledged that the profits from these kind of games come from “whales” rather than from the majority of players. Although companies in Japan can make quite a bit of profit by focusing on whales, Iwata doesn’t believe that the same approach would be embraced by people around the world.

Touch Arcade has the details.

Zynga Announces CSR2

The original CSR was an amazing technological feat bringing unbelievable graphics to a mobile platform — but that was three years ago. CSR2 will turn everything up to 11. In a first hand demo at E3 earlier this month I was blown away by the amazing quality. Zynga / Naturalmotion are shooting for beyond console quality — they might get there.

CSR2 will hit soft launch soon, and be launching globally later this year.

Touch Arcade Turns to Patreon for Funding

The writing has been on the wall for a while. We’ve written about our own struggles here at Slide To Play more than once. But Eli Hodapp at Touch Arcade has put it all out on the table — if they don’t raise $10,000 per month, they are going to have to start making big cuts.

It’s important that readers and especially developers support the mobile sites that service this industry. Developers love it when they can pull quotes from our stories or use us to get their game some buzz at Apple, but haven’t always returned the favor. Support these sites now, or be faced with a reality where the unchecked and ever increasing cost of paid installs is the only way to raise awareness for games.

Do it now. Support Slide To Play, and Support Touch Arcade. If nothing else, a retweet or Facebook share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Han Shoots First – Disney Sets Record Straight in new Star Wars: Heroes Path Mobile Puzzle Game

In the original release of Star Wars Episode IV, Han shoots at Greedo first. An act that was softened by George Lucas in re-releases of the movie — to make Han Solo seem like a better guy I assume. But true fans have known all along that Han shoots first and notice in the trailer above that he does indeed. Saying that Disney has set the record straight may be a bit of an overstatement, but I’ll take what I can get since Lucas has denied for years the real truth.

But, back to the game — a character movement puzzle game set in the Star Wars universe? What’s not to like?
