Sexy update meets the world’s greatest puzzle adventure!
Yes, this is not mere marketing copy – Puzzle Quest just got better!
Release 42 brings Power Packs, which seem to be the collective updates described on the handy splash screen and mini release notes. The highlights of R42 include easier ability use through a new firing panel (instead of flashing tiles) and higher drop rates from missions. The full list of release notes can be found at d3pforums.com if you are curious.
Possibly the biggest tweak is the return of power training via the cache. This means you can train powers using cached covers. This feature is a must because it sucks when you have to grind for points or sell your covers to make room for your core team.
This update is very encouraging as it shows us Demiurge is catering to paying and non-paying players alike, which only makes us want to support the game further. Storage was the biggest issue for me and the increased mission drops now multiplies replay value threefold. If you have been away from PQ, now is the time to bring your toons back into action!
The sad part is that I dumped some copies of Iron Man Model 35 because I was at the power cap. When that happens, you need to level up your units, which gets increasingly more expensive at higher levels and higher rarities. Bag Man Spider-Man is another under-appreciated unit that I recommend holding on to. Using him with Hawkeye, Storm, Juggernaut, and/or Dark Avengers Black Widow is highly effective in missions where countdown tiles present huge threats. Be wary of high-level Muscle, Pyro, Grenadier, and Flamethrower types.. they really hurt!
Back to R42, the UI improvements are not just nice eye candy. The roughly 125MB update does a lot to improve the UX. The game glitches a lot less and the need to click/tap lots has been vastly reduced. This is a complete overhaul.. it’s something a big deal.
Now, let’s hope they bring back some lightning rounds because this three-star event sucks hairy donkey balls. Amirite?

It’s that time again. That’s right: the time when you return to CoD just because you can level up faster (if you don’t boost like a lamer). Double XP weekend for Black Ops 2 starts Friday at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT. If you’re on on the East coast or West coast, the time will be somewhere in between. =oP
I’m sure this applies to all platforms but I hope to clock some hours doing clan ops and goofing around with my NoF brothers and sisters on XBox LIVE. Feel free to add me on XBL, Raptr, Steam, Twitter, and Twitch. My name’s Yogizilla all over the interwebz. Hopefully, everyone can pry themselves away from Diablo III and GTA V. Lulz
I should be streaming on the Official Yogizilla Twitch TV Channel to show off my epic newbness too. I’ve had a great response to my Scrolls and GTA V videos so I hope you will join us in the chat room. I will be checking into the chat room periodically but you can always ping me, Yogizila, on Twitter, which notifies me on my tablets and smartphone.
Happy Hunting, fellow XBLers!

I am back with a vengeance!
After wasting a good year with a startup called Social Prize and some bean-counting, vision-less partners, I have decided to return to my roots: gaming, writing, game design/development, and a little dose of cartooning. So much catching up to do! As of late, League of Legends has taken a backseat to Rage of Bahamut, where I have finally fully established the Nipples of Fate (N-o-F or “nawph”, for those new to this site). Now, I will say this straight-up: League of Legends is by far the better game but I go where my clanmates are and, well, all my LoL friends are slackers! LOL
Rage of Bahamut – The Mobile Game You Will Love And Hate!
I’ve been meaning to write a series of R.O.B. related posts with full reviews and wishlists in the mix (I’m a slacker too, apparently) but here is the skinny for now: Rage of Bahamut is a pseudo TCG where you buy or, if you’re lucky, obtain virtual cards to build powerful decks and battle other players or raid bosses. The game isn’t much to look at, is rather buggy, and can be frustrating for newbies but, once you get past all that, it is very satisfying.

Now that I’ve logged a good amount of play time in the first two days of “Brinkdom”, I’d like to preface my excitement with a bit of a reality check…
Replay value and the length of a video game are certainly key elements that add value to an offering. In the case of Brink, jaded gamers may say it’s too short. If you want to be overly-critical, the game doesn’t have a very deep story nor does it have plenty of gameplay modes upon release. I think it all works well and, if I know Splash Damage well enough, they’re going to find ways to keep Brink fresh and fun.
If you’re like my cousin and Brink reminds you of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, good observation! That’s arguably Splash Damage’s most well-known work. We won’t talk about Quake Wars so, really, this is their first real console entry. They’re going to want to do some big things here and Brink is set up to be expandable and user-driven. I’d say any shortcoming cited on this article are purely first impressions and not final in any way. Brink definitely feeds a very real need in a marketplace littered with clones and crap…
It’s been yet another busy day for me but I did manage to log a couple of hours on Brink. In a few words, it is well worth the money as far as I am concerned. Brink is Bethesda’s take on the FPS genre and, thanks to their experience with the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series (and teaming up with Splash Damage), there are some very welcomed RPG elements.
I’d compare Brink with some of my other favorite XBox 360 shooters: Borderlands, Team Fortress 2, Gears of War 3, and Rainbow Six Vegas 2. I’d say it is more akin to the foremost than the latter. While the game stands out on it’s own, the deep character customization, class-based obejctiive focus, and team-focused game mechanics should be familiar to the seasoned shooter veteran. Bethesda has done the impossible by weaving the Brink story into virtually every gameplay option.
I’m really excited about Brink but let’s dig deeper because, really, this game is not for everyone… Read the rest of this entry »

If you haven’t been very active on Yu-Gi-Oh! Online you may have missed the release of yet another awesome themed duelpass. The Spellcasters Union Deck seems to be yet another response to the growing demand of the community. The E-Hero Deck was a huge success and I can see this deck being an even bigger success. While the previous duelpass deck provided an experience for the newer duelists and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX fans, this deck promises to offer more old-school flavors, fused with some newer cards.
Dark Magician and the girl of similar title.. Now THAT'S kicking it old-school!
If you are a big fan of Yami Yugi’s style of dueling, this new theme deck will definitely be a nice addition to your trunk. Like the previous E-Hero Deck, this duelpass gives you an entire deck (in much the same manner Structure Decks offer duelists vital cores for their recipes) upon first use. Each additional duelpass, if you can get your hands on more than one, gives you additional cards in the series…
