Ascend: New Gods XBLA footage and Windows Phone details

With both this article and the one that's going up in 30 minutes or so (favorite E3 XBLA games), I could really use some positive comments on the article from you guys. I have to fight for whatever console coverage I get to post, so it's important my bosses know our readers enjoy it. Plus it's important to me because it's so fun to write. I know I can count on the usual suspects to comment, but let's the rest of us be nice and do it too. Thanks guys.

Why did everyone shit on Battlewagon. I finally got around to playing it and really enjoyed it. It's kind of repetitive, but so are a lot of mobile games.

Also, no FF or DotW sightings yet.

^I've only tried the demo of Battlewagon myself, but I agree with you. It's on my list of games to pick up sometime for sure, especially since it's a buck.

I was originally really down on BattleWagon, but I have since played (and completed) it, and I would say it was worth a buck. It had that "one more challenge" appeal to it, and the very obtainable achievements saw to it that I finished it ;) There was just one level that was a bit tougher/more annoying than the rest, even with what seemed like the best choice of equipment for your wagon.

Also, Tentacles appears to be the DOTW, it dropped down to $1.99. Tempted, but I remember people saying it was too hard, opinions?

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

Hello all this is my frist post on GAG forums.

I really enjoy tentacles. I bought it for 5 dollars and never regretted it. I completed it a long time ago, but I appear to be an outlier. I will admit that it was hard near the end, but is very doable.

They made it easier and it's very easily recommended at $2. Some of the achievements aren't all that easy though. What's up with these repeat DotWs? :cry:

I'll be so disappointed if FF isn't up when I wake up in the morning. I play on spending the morning on a raft in the pool leveling up most the morning.

Me neither I had it on ios and psp and always got distracted and played something else after my characters were around lvl 9-11ish. I got rid of my iphone shortly after and my psp broke so never got back to it.

Damn, I was hoping for a pricing mistake! I just can't pay $7 for it, knowing I won't play it at al in the near future.

While it is expensive for these phone games, I feel that it is easily worth 7 bucks, but I'm a huge fan of the franchise and really enjoy going through all of the content in a lot of RPGs, plus I hope that they will bring more of the final fantasy games, chrono trigger, or any of their other RPGs to the platform, so I'm definitely picking it up.

Dear God,
I jumped in the pool Sunday and didn't realize until 15 mins later my phone was in my shorts.

I pulled it out of rice this morning and it still works. Little water behind the screen and the sound is screwy but it still works.

Final fantasy downloaded.

Final Fantasy is so fun. The Labyrinth of Time and speed run Achievements will be obnoxious, but even if I don't get those, I'm really happy to have a proper RPG on my phone now. And getting to see how FF started is great too.

Warboss, glad your phone didn't explode! Jeez, that's scary. You should remove the battery and let it dry out more, unless it's totally dry already.

FF demo felt good, maybe if I get my WP backlog down a bit more I'll pick it up.

I'm still waiting for that Chickens Cant Fly update...it's been in certification for a couple weeks already I believe.

Check out the $0.99 games, a lot of them are pretty decent (Fruit Ninja, Max & the Magic Marker, De Blob, Feed Me Oil, Burn the Rope, IonBallEX). Oh and make sure to grab all the free ones besides Bug Village too.

PvZ is definitely must have. Hydro Thunder is great.
