The Official Video Game Thread
« on: July 15, 2013, 10:13:50 AM »
Kind of surprised this forum doesn't already have a thread like this, may as well start it


Video games general for anything really, whether it be opinions, news, etc

Apparently LoL players can now get Visas by being recognized as professional 'atheletes.' eSports is going mainstream

Is athletes really the correct term to be used here, given it generally implies physical sports?
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Think it's worth a sticky.

Anyway, TWEWY is on sale for 10 bucks in the app store, is it worth the buy?

TWEWY is like Tales if every character was Jade Curtiss and the gameplay took a few speed tablets. Good game.

I considered downloading the Japanese .apk for my Android, but that probably wouldn't have been a good idea.

Get the DS version, it's cheap for a DS game, and the dual-screen gameplay adds so much compared to the 1-screen approach the iOS version has. (And yes, I've played both)

I've played the actual game.

I could actually help you guys.

you guys could basically set your partner to auto and if you're in like the end, try to get the dragon couture pins and evolve them since they're pretty powerful.

If you absolutely need to, set your partner to auto, but I recommend you eventually set it to Manual, dat dual-screen light-puck passing is just pure bliss to play.
