Pinball FX 3 Guys!

28 June 2017 - 02:56 PM

PFX3_keyart-800x450.jpg

Holy crap, today I just learned Pinball FX 3 is a thing and it's coming out this summer! Focusing on multiple table playthroughs, akin to Tournament style, and this being the main hub everyone would play in not depending on platform. Like previous titles, most of the tables will carry over free of charge! This is huge.

 

 

Pinball FX3 is a massive game packed full of new features designed to turn pinball into a true community experience. Built around multiplayer-matchups, user-generated tournaments and league play, Pinball FX3 is now so much more than just leaderboard rankings – it elevates the competitive pinball spirit that has thrived since the early days of pinball more than a century ago.

Gems of War (XB1) F2P game from the makers of Puzzle Quest

20 May 2017 - 03:17 AM

Surprised there's not a thread for this. Gems of War is available for all as a free game, on Xbox One & PC, from the makers of Puzzle Quest. As with most F2P games it runs off of microtransactions. While jumping in is free, joining a Guild will negate having to throw in any money into the game (Guild members will accomplish weekly goals to get rewards easier). People are obviously supporting them as the Xbox One version has gotten a few updates over time, including more achievements to obtain. I play the game daily, as there's an accumulative daily bonus that throws some rewards your way just for logging in, and knock out the daily objectives to gain even more in-game currency - it's also cool to strive for some optional objectives.

 

The latest update introduces a new event, Guild Wars & accompanying achievements.

 

Atm, my Guild, TA, finds this Guild Wars event overly unbalanced as some people have had incredibly cheap opposing teams with possibly obtained troops and upgrades via real money (ahh it's the name of the game here unfortunately). Nonetheless, solo play is a lot of fun and you will not have to worry about other players as much but pvp is also present. PvP is way more balanced as you climb up or fall down a global ladder so you'll usually get paired off with like skilled or leveled opponents. If you've enjoyed the previous games in the Puzzle Quest family, PQ: Challenge of the Warlords, PQ2, PQ: Galactrix, give Gems of War a shot. You've got the same RPG Puzzle blend - that casual addictive match 3 gameplay with depth with RPG builds and character abilities - but more, I think, of a streamlined experience. Personally I enjoy the Puzzle Quest games, even play Magic the Gathering: Puzzle Quest & Marvel Puzzle Quest on my phone too. Enough of my riff raff, here's the official description on the Microsoft Store page:
