NamcoBandai Launches Battle Card Version of SoulCalibur Franchise

Soulcalibur 1

At the turn of the century, Namco launched a combat game that rocked the console gaming world. SoulCalibur brought the eight-way run to the fight. The game was a huge hit and has been ported numerous times to multiple platforms, including iOS. This week, NamcoBandai launched a new and completely different version of the game that will upset fans of the original, but might bring new gamers into the fold.

My emotions are split on the card battle game Soulcalibur Unbreakable Soul. On the one hand, this is not even remotely close to fitting in with the man-to-man fighting franchise that has existed for nearly 15 years. On the other hand, I love card battle games, so of course I’m drawn to the mechanics.

PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Brogue

Brogue 2

Roguelike games are hitting big in the App Store right now, and more the better in my opinion. I love hacking my way through dungeon after dungeon, picking up loot and searching for hidden passageways. That moment when you are just about to die and loose all of your stuff, but manage to kill the monster and swill a healing potion just in the nick of time is the most exciting moment in a game.

Brogue is a roguelike game that really takes things back to yesteryear. It was developed using ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange), which basically means the characters, monsters, and rooms are represented by letters and symbols. While the rest of the game-making world has moved onto the most advanced graphics possible, this little ditty takes its cues directly from the original game that spawned the genre, “Rogue.”

SEGA Brings Popular Coin-Dozer ‘Game Dragon’ Coins to iPad and iPhone

Dragon Coins 1

When I was a kid, I loved playing those quarter pushing games in arcades. There would sit, this huge pile of quarters with at least 40 of them resting precariously on the edge of the platform. I just knew I could get all of them to fall if my quarter would land just right before being pushed toward the pile, which it never did. The fun of coin dozer games can be relived in digital form with SEGA’s hit game Coin Dragon. For the first time ever, the game is now available on the iPad and iPhone.
