In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

Stone Blade Kickstarting Android, Online Version of Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer
Stone Blade Entertainment will be starting a Kickstarter campaign next week to create Android and Online versions of Ascension: Deckbuilding Game. Their goal is to get an in-house team of developers (not Playdek, who created the iOS version) and deliver these versions by the end of 2013.

The Kickstarter will feature:

· Ascension Android app (Free-to-play)
· Ascension Online (Free-to-play)
· Online Tournaments
· Single player campaign mode
· Broader Ascension multiple player and cross-platform play
· Quicker digital expansions
The campaign should begin next Monday, February 18. We'll post about it, with links, next week when the campaign goes live.

Le Havre To Be Updated Soon
Codito Development has posted that an update for their iOS version of Le Havre is in final stages of testing and should be submitted to Apple next week. Le Havre is for iOS Universal, costs $4.99USD and is available on the App Store.

Real Racing 3 Releasing on February 28
Australian developer Firemonkeys have announced that their long awaited racing game, Real Racing 3, will be released for iOS and Android on February 28. Why do we care? Well, Real Racing 3 will have an asynchronous racing mode that they're calling Time Shifted Multiplayer. In other words, you can race your friends even if they're currently not online. Interested to see how it will play out.

In not so good news, however, in that same announcement they indicated that Real Racing 3 (unlike the previous two entries in the series) will be a freemium title. Toucharcade has played this version and explained how the freemium model works. There are 2 in-game currencies. One is easy to acquire and is used to pay for upgrades and make repairs. The second is the premium currency which is used to reduce wait times. Yes, repairing your car now takes time depending on how badly it was damaged. Coins will let you reduce that downtime.

Sounds horrible to me, but the TA guys say that it's not bad once you get more than one car and car race your other cars while one is getting fixed. I'll believe it when I see it. Personally, I'd rather pay up and just get the whole damn game.
