You would think that cross-platform play for games would generally be a thing by now, but the fact that I can only get a copy of Mighty No. 9 for one platform after backing it originally makes it clear that this is still a world of divided platforms. AdventureQuest 3D, on the other hand, is really trying to be a game that can be played on almost any device used by anyone anywhere, meaning that you can play at your home on your computer and then take it on the road with your phone. We took an in-depth look at the title this week, so that’s something you ought to check out.
It’s generally been a pretty quiet beta week, but “quiet” isn’t a synonym for “absolutely stagnant,” either:
- A new Paladins patch has been rolled out, with a new free rotation and a rework to how you can buy specific cards. No more randomly hoping for the right card at a given rarity! (Thanks to Sorenthaz for letting us know.)
- SamuTale‘s testing is going to start in the legendary land of Soon, but until it happens you can assure yourself access with a relatively cheap founder’s pack. I’d say that’s noteworthy.
- Speaking of buying and selling stuff, are you curious about how that’s going to work out with Gigantic? Because those questions were asked and answered in that game’s recent AMA following the Perfect World Entertainment partnership.
- Are you more of the storytelling sort? You should be happy that the most recent big Landmark patch has made storytelling much better. Story saving, resets, and easier nodes are all part of making a tale easier to craft. Not that it will make your characters any more compelling, alas.
Oh, and let’s also note that we do have that list just below. There are a lot of games on it! We go through and trim it out, trying to make sure that everything on there should be on there… but if something doesn’t deserve it, could you let us know down in the comments? We appreciate it.
