The mobile Blade and Soul spin-off Blade and Soul Revolution launched in South Korea earlier this week and quickly took the #1 spot as the highest grossing mobile game on iOS. Netmarble, the game's developer, had to expand server capacity 4 times already to accommodate the millions of users rushing to try the game. Unlike most mobile spin-offs, Blade and Soul Revolution aims to stay true to the PC version of the game as much as possible, meaning combat will be action oriented and the game will be heavy on story-telling. The game currently only has 4 playable races and 4 classes, but more will be added in the future. An English release is planned for global markets sometime in 2019, but no word on exactly when that's scheduled to happen, but my guess is it happens sometime during the first half of the year.

I don’t usually report on mobile games, but I do play quite a few of them. Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, Mario Run, and Pokemon Go currently sit on my phone. And I enjoy them to varying degrees. Pokemon Go is my current favorite. It’s not because there is awesome gameplay or innovative mechanics, but it does give me a reason to get out of my house and walk around the park every other day or so. There is one more game that I have to add to my phone when it releases later this year. At the top of the Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle, WA, Bethesda demonstrated Elder Scrolls: Blades for the PAX West 2018 crowd. It wasn’t just developers giving a guided tour of the game. The team set up eight iPhone X’s at tables for TES fans to get the grubby paws on. I mean it: Their hands were messy; Bethesda was serving barbeque pulled pork mini-sandwiches, too. Even on a sauce-smeared screen, I experienced what had to be the best mobile game that I’ve ever played. Two reasons … [Read more...] about PAX West 2018: Every mobile game should play like Elder Scrolls Blades
[Pre-register] Today at EA Play, Electronic Arts’ own event before E3 2018, the developer revealed Command & Conquer: Rivals, a PVP-focused real-time strategy (RTS) mobile game based on the once iconic franchise (before it was butchered when EA bought over Westwood). Taking advantage of mobile’s touch interface, Command & Conquer: Rivals gives players continuous control of their armies where skill and strategy are key to victory. Planning and strategy are the keys to victory in Command & Conquer: Rivals. The intuitive mobile controls of the game allow players to focus their efforts on high-level strategy while also engaging in tactical battles. Each match requires a unique approach to a player’s army composition and build order, where players must create winning combinations of infantry, tanks, aircraft, and hi-tech behemoths in order to defend and out-maneuver an opponent. Players will choose between the Global Defense Initiative and the Brotherhood … [Read more...] about – EA announces new PVP strategy mobile game
[Source: Pixabay] Even just one year ago, if you’d told me that we’d be playing console games on our smartphones and tablets, I wouldn’t have believed you. Or, if I had, I would have assumed it to be some sort of streaming service. But, here we are, playing Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on devices small enough to fit into our pockets, whilst consoles like Nintendo’s wildly popular portable Switch console become the fastest selling console in US history. It’s a fundamental shift for a business which has always been home-hardware first, with manufacturers putting their best efforts into home consoles and considering mobile hardware second. I mean, Microsoft has never released a portable console, leaving Nintendo to absolutely dominate the space for decades with only a little competition from Sony. But what got us to a point of gaming going mobile at an increasingly rapid rate? Well, there are two major forces: [Source: Pixabay] … [Read more...] about What Created Today’s Mobile Gaming Revolution?
