A little back story of Skyforge

Ambush! – Tower Offense release on Google Play

I just downloaded Ambush! – Tower Defense that released today on the Google Play store.  It’s pretty cool, it combines tower defense and offense into one game.

Ambush, has pretty good graphics for the genre of game it is.  It’s nothing out of this world but it’s good enough.  As for game play, it does a very good job in teaching you how to play the game unlike some other games that kind of just throw you into it and you need to figure out for yourself.  I have been playing the game today and I find it to be pretty fun.  I suggest others give it a try while it is still in beta.

It seems that in December the game while still be available but will include in-app purchases.

Here is a quick snippet from the developers…

Ever wondered what it’s like to be invading other’s defenses in a Tower Defense game? Join Ambush and crush other players’ defenses in Tower Offense mode! Don’t forget to keep the old good Defense as well to succeed!

For many years Warlords of a mighty clan protected their land, building bases to defend territories and crushing enemies beyond count. But the Wise Man said: the time for Great Invasions has come! Build a Citadel, ambush the neighboring tribes! Send forth your armies and crush their defenses!

Challenge other players in a unique mixture of well-known and beloved Tower Defense and a BRAND NEW Tower Offense game modes! Defend your realm and conquer others!

If this seems like an interesting game to you download it here from the Google Play Store.

 

Game of Thrones, the game by Telltale Games

Well it looks like Telltale Games is bringing us a game on another fan favorite.  If you are not aware of Telltale Games they also made The Walking Dead game series.

The actual page for the game does not really have a lot of information on the game itself.  I don’t see it on Amazon or on Steam yet but the trailer states 2014… guys, you’re running out of time if you plan to release by 2014!

Here is what I do know, it seems this game will be called Iron from Ice and it will be a series comprised of 6 games.  So there should be plenty of Game of Thrones goodness coming your way once these games start rolling out.  I wish telltale Games would have released a little more details or even some in-game screenshots but nothing so far… I guess we will have to wait and see if it release does come out this year.

If you would like to see the trailer… well more like teaser for the Game of Thrones game it’s right here…

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor ad in Times Square

I just came across this interesting photo on Reddit.  I’m not sure if it was taken by the user that posted it or if he got it from another place.  It seems Blizzard has placed an ad for World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor in Time Square.  It looks really cool, I will give it to them.

I also wonder how much something like this would have cost them…

Blizzard’s Overwatch hero gameplay videos

Overwatch

If you not had a chance to see Blizzard’s latest game, Overwatch you should really check it out.  They have released gameplay videos for each hero and I find some of them to be pretty cool.  As I have said in an earlier post about Overwatch, it reminds me a lot of TF2… which isn’t exactly a bad thing!  I am just going based on what I have seen in the couple of videos Blizzard has released on it.

Below you will find a video of each hero of Overwatch.

World of Warcraft documentary: Looking for Group

Blizzard has released a documentary at BlizzCon 2014.  They have released World of Warcraft: Looking for Group.

In World of Warcaft: Looking for Group you get to experience a little of the last 10 years of WoW… the adventures, camaraderie and of course! The dancing on mailboxes.

It’s hard to believe that it has been 10 years… I still remember the first time I logged into WoW and how blown away I was.  Anyway enjoy the documentary if you have not already seen it.
