Hearthstone for iPad Soft Launches
Yesterday, video game juggernaut, Blizzard Entertainment, gave the world another reason to be jealous of Canadians, Austrailians and Kiwis: they all get to start playing Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft on their iPads right now.
The first part of the Hearthstone rollout for iPad started with a soft launch in these countries and the rest of us will just have to wait.
Not long, Blizzard promises. In their announcement today they simply state that the rest of the world won't have to wait much longer. Soft launches can take anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple months to straighten out the bugs. I've been playing on my iPad all day, however, and there aren't any bugs. In fact, this game is so polished and perfect for iPad, I can't imagine that they're not going to get it out for wide release within the next couple weeks. Seriously, it's a pretty amazing app already. I'm guessing the only tweaks it will need will be on the server side.
So, anyway, if you live in one of those magical realms that has access, why are you reading this? Go download it now and start building your decks. The download is FREE, and it can be found here.
Warhammer 40K: Storm of Vengeance Released
Remember that Warhammer 40,000 game we talked about a while back that looked like Plants vs. Zombies with a facelift?
Well, it hit the App Store last night for iOS Universal.
Storm of Vengeance lets players take on the roles of either Grand Master Belial or Ork Warlord Ghazghkull Thraka and either defend the planet with your 100 Dark Angel Space Marines, or attempt to annihilate the planet with the Ork Armies.
The game offers cross-platform play between PC and iOS and it appears to have a solo campaign as well as the blurb mentions 50+ missions for each faction (I'm guessing that's for solo play?).
Anyway, if you want to check it out you can for $5 right now in the App Store.
Yomi "so, so close to release"
This pretty much says it all:

FTL is out...why are you reading this post?
Really people, what's wrong with you?
It's here and it's glorious.
Unless you're a Canadian, Australian or a Kiwi you have no excuses.
Go and make us proud and die horribly while asphyxiating in a derelict spacecraft.
You can pick up FTL for $10 on the App Store.
Among the best things in life is playing printed games in person with family and close friends. When those are not convenient we like iOS Board Games. News, reviews, previews, and opinions about board gaming on iPhones, iPads, iPods and even Android devices. (iPhone board games, iPad board games, iPod board games, Android board games)
