Final Fantasy Characters Coming to Puzzle & Dragons in Japan

Squall, Rinoa, Tidus, Chaos, and other Final Fantasy heroes and villains are coming to GungHo’s hugely popular puzzle game Puzzle & Dragons. It’s extremely common for the title to cross-over with other popular game series, and now it’s Final Fantasy’s turn. No word on whether this collaboration is coming to the English version of the game, but no doubt it’d be received well.

Hearthstone’s third Blackrock Mountain wing, Blackrock Spire, is now live

Lately it seems like Hearthstone posts just don’t stop coming. That’s because a lot is going on with this fantastic card battling game lately, and if you’re not playing it, you should probably change that ASAP. The third section of the Blackrock Mountain DLC has gone live. VentureBeat reports:

This gives you three new bosses to fight against as part of the continuing solo adventure. This is just one of the ways that Blizzard is keeping fans of its first free-to-play and mobile game coming back for more, and it’s working as Hearthstone is one of the top-grossing apps on iOS and Android. The developer is selling this new episode for $7, but you can buy the entirety of Blackrock Mountain for $25 — that will save you a few bucks over purchasing each wing separately.

How to Fix Mortal Kombat X’s WBID Login Error

Mortal Kombat X for mobile lets you earn content for the main game on consoles and PC, but in order to link the two versions of the game, you need to have an ID for WB Play (a “WBID”). Unfortunately, a lot of people are getting login errors. Luckily, a GameFAQs user found a work-around, and Gamezebo’s Jim Squires confirms it worked for him. If you’re having login issues, take a look. An official fix should be coming soon.

Guitar Hero Live Will Be Playable on Mobile Platforms

The Guitar Hero franchise is resurrecting alongside the Rock Band franchise, and everything old is new again. The upcoming Guitar Hero game, called Guitar Hero Live, is particularly intriguing because the audience reacts directly to your performance – and the “full game,” which comes with its own guitar controller (the one in your closet is still obsolete – sorry), is reportedly coming to mobile, too.

Guitar Hero Live is coming this fall, and we’ll surely be hearing more information about the game and its mobile iterations as the summer rocks on.

Mortal Kombat X is Giving Out Gold Cards in Silver Packs

Touch Arcade has noticed that Mortal Kombat X has been giving out gold cards in silver-only packs of late. It could be a bug, but read the article to learn how to capitalize on it before it’s shut down (if it’s a bug and not a feature).

In the meantime, however, it appears that there’s another way to earn Gold-tier characters in Mortal Kombat X. Besides the premium Souls currency, there’s also “Koins” which are available as IAP but can also be earned quite easily (and in a repeatable manner) just by playing the game’s campaign. In other words, Koins are something that you can get plenty more of just by grinding. Koins can be used to buy Silver-tier characters (or one Kano Gold character, which is an outlier) individually or they can be used to buy a “Kard Pack” which guarantees you one Silver character and two additional support-type cards. Except… I just pulled a Gold Cryomancer Sub-Zero from one of these Kard Packs.

GI Joe Coming to Mobile

Yo Joe! Whether you’re a fan of the good guys or prefer to side with the slithery Cobra Commander, you’ll be glad to know a mobile GI Joe game from Hasbro and Backflip Studios is in the works. Look for the game this summer.

While details are still scarce at this stage, G.I. Joe Strike (not to be confused with G.I. Joe Cobra Strike for the Atari 2600) will supposedly be a “cinematic” action game that pits players as Snake Eyes against longtime bosom rival, Storm Shadow. The exact style of gameplay is unknown, but the promise of over a hundred collectable ability cards hints at a strategic, turn-based element that brings back fond memories of our days playing with the action figures—“Kyah kyah, take that right hand! No, take that left hand!” We were lonely children.

Early Details About The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land

Next Games is hard at work on The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, a mobile game based on the popular franchise about surviving zombies (and surviving humans). The game is seemingly quite open-ended, and revolves around trying to stay alive in very unfriendly circumstances.

It’s a hostile world out there, and with the dead walking, the one thing that’s guaranteed is that you won’t be safe. Expect to meet the walkers en masse, and not always when you want to. Where do you find shelter for your group? Where do you find the food, equipment and weapons you need? What is the best strategy to overcome the walkers closing in? Who will survive?

Out There: Ω Edition Coming Soon as Free Update

As you may or may not know, Out There is my jam. It’s a spaceship roguelike-ish adventure game where you’re trying to get from the middle of outer space back home on limited resources. An enhanced version of the game has just launched on Steam. According to Touch Arcade, the developer is finalizing the mobile version of the Ω upgrade, which will be a free update to owners of the standard version. Brace yourselves, space-farers.

“We’re in the process of finalizing the mobile version,” developer Michaël Peiffert told me over e-mail when asked about the iOS version. “I can’t give you a precise date right now, but we hope it’ll come out in a month or two.”

… The upgraded version of Out There [$3.99] includes 50 new narrative events, new types of solar systems, an extra ending, an expanded soundtrack, and a new coat of high-definition paint.

People are Doing Crazy Things in Hearthstone

French streamer and Hearthstone player Mamytwink claims to be breaking all kinds of Hearthstone records lately. First he apparently set the record for the longest single turn, and now he claims to have set the record for most cards drawn and most fatigue damage in a turn. From Touch Arcade:

For the uninitiated, here’s a simple breakdown: Hearthstone decks have 30 cards in them, and you take 1 point of damage each time you overdraw (this is called “fatigue”). The effect is a cumulative penalty for running out of cards. You take one point of damage the first time you overdraw, two points the second time, and so on.

The losing player in Henn’s experiment overdrew 14,745 times, and some quick, back-of-the-napkin summation reveals that he took a total of 108,714,885 points of fatigue damage. The turn took 24 hours to complete and finished up earlier this morning.
