I had been playing Marvel War of Heroes for 3 years and the fuckers sunsetted it two days after my birthday this year. I'd finally played my way up to a very decent account. and then kaput.

I'm tapping away with Fallout Shelter when I'm bored these days. Anyone play any card battle type games?

I loooooove card battle games, but I HATE the farming/Stan aspect of most free ones. Ascension is a fun card battle/board game and free.

Game of Dice is being thrown in my face like crazy! They must've spent a lot on marketing. I SHOULD love it since it's a board game played with cards, for some reason I'm unwilling to learn it. Seems like there's a lot to the tutorial when I played through.

My biggest issue with card battle type games is the pay to win aspect of them all... It's outrageous

I agree, it drives me nuts NUTS and in a FURY when you can't play and enjoy/stay competitive as a game scales in difficulty unless you spend real money on the game.

I fully understand and respect that games are created to make money, otherwise they probably wouldn't be made, save for the heroes in the industry who make a game for the she of making a fun game. However, all games really should respect the player by allowing the player to stay competitive BY PLAYING THE ACTUSL GAME- unlocking new areas, completing quests, completing challenges.... All of these should be rewarded by giving the player enough rewards to stay competitive and not force the player to spend real money just to have a chance at staying competitive.

Ghostbusters: Puzzle Fighter does this really well, as I haven't spent a dime but I have a very very good set of characters maxed out to my preferred specifications - all allowed and rewarded by playing and enjoying the ACTUAL fucking game - as it should be. And you know what??? Now that I have a job and I'm not totally in debt, I'm going to spend 20$ on it just out of principal even tho I'm not forced to. I've been playing it for 9 months and I still enjoy it, and it was free. They deserve my money for these reasons. Even though I hound the company's website forum with obscure questions SO OBSCURE that the sole moderator doesn't have the answers and has to "get back to me after contacting the studio developers" with no success.

Think about that..... I'm driving one person in charge of a forum for an unpopular game SO UNPOPULAR it doesn't even have a fucking Reddit, with my obscure fanatic fan-boy game loving questions. That's pretty ridiculous and crazy. I can write an encyclopedia on this game, I've learned so much, and ITS SO MUCH FUN if you really enjoy match 3 games. The gameplay is similar to "Puzzle Quest" on PS3 or Xbox 360.

I can't fucking deal with the invisible joystick and A and B buttons on the bottom of the screen for a few reasons.
I have fat fingers, I don't have an iPhone 6 Plus, and why would I want my hands to be in the way of my vision of the game screen? I can't play ganes like that. I can't get past controlling like that. I've tried, I just get pissed, immediately.

Lol, they make controllers that have a stand for your phone, it grips it and holds it in place right above the controller. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B019H5II8Y/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1462937501&sr=8-2&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=android+bluetooth+controller&dpPl=1&dpID=41MVjnXvMVL&ref=plSrch

Now, thats a great product. however, if im not spending much money for IOS games with little value on graphics, and often too casual to get too sucked into except for my puzzle games and an occasional decent port of a game I grew up with, im SURE AS FUCK not forking out that kind of money for a controller thats just going to remind me of my hatred at the thought of now, because I have fat fingers, i need to buy a special device for 50$ just to enjoy what others enjoy with their normal, regular, maybe even slender fingers. FUCK THESE GAMES! FUCK THESE DEVELOPERS THAT THINK ITS OK!!!!! FUCK THIS PERSON SELLING THIS DEVICE FOR THAT MUCH WHICH MAKES ME FEEL BAD ABOUT MYSELF!!!!!

Granted, its just a person filling a need/want that people have, but:

haha I love Bingo too ^_^


im a bingo fiend as well. i started playing Clue and Monopoly themed bingo games on mobile..... cause for some reason i find it entertaining to wait for a number to be called so that i may hilight it, in hopes to get some hilights in a row and win victory with a bingo! its 1000 times better in real life, especially when you can win something tangible.
