Fire Emblem Heroes Android review – A pretty good Fire Emblem app

When “Tokyo Mirage Session FE” was originally teased it seemed like a crossover between the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem franchises. What I saw was something more in lines of Persona with Fire Emblem characters acting as the facades used to face hardships of being an idol master. “Fire Emblem Heroes”, though, actually gave us something resembling a SMTxFE… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Why It's So Hard To Make Games In China

Illustration: Sam Woolley It’s tough making games in China. Not only do you have to fight against the stereotypes of Chinese culture surrounding Kung Fu, gang warfare, and illegal street racing, you have to do so under the rule of one of the strictest governments in the world. All media consumed and produced within China’s borders is vetted by the government, with books, movies, and games carefully curated so as to control China’s image. Advertisement In China, games can get slapped with a sales ban forbidding distribution without so much as a warning. Perhaps the game cast doubt on the omniscience of the Chinese government, or perhaps it simply raised questions the government didn’t want asked. Mobile games have it even worse, requiring government pre-approval in order to sell to the Chinese market. Coupled with the 14-year ban on video game consoles that was only lifted in 2015, China is a difficult place for people to make games. As games set in modern-day China risk upsetting the government’s carefully-curated image of the country, many developers use an ancient China setting instead. This has led to a wealth of games based on stories like Journey to the West tales from the…

Tips For Playing Fire Emblem Heroes

Fire Emblem Heroes isn’t a difficult game, but it is confusing to navigate and understand, especially if you’ve never played a game in the series before. Here are some tips and tricks to make the most out of it. If you haven’t started yet, consider rerolling This is possibly the most annoying tip on this list, yet rerolling may also be the most important. When you start a new game, Heroes showers you with Orbs, which you can use to summon random characters. If you don’t get anything good on your first go-around (and if you have the time and patience for it) try deleting and reinstalling the game. You’ll have to go through the tutorial again, which might take a couple of minutes, but in doing so, you’ll have another shot at pulling better heroes. Try getting at least one five-star character from the get-go, they’re the rarest and strongest of them all. Link your My Nintendo account Hey, it’s 10 free Orbs. Once you link your account, you can collect your Orbs by tapping ‘Home,’ going to the fountain on the bottom right, and then tapping on the blue and silver icon on the READ FULL STORY AT…

SNAKEBYTE Android review – An entertaining and challenging version of the old Snake game

King Is Bringing Us More Bubble Witch with a Third Game Out Now

King’s bubble-popping extravaganza Bubble Witch Saga rides again with its third release that’s out now: Bubble Witch 3 Saga. It’s available via the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon App Store, and Facebook for you to snatch up right now for all your bubble-bursting pleasure. If you’ve ever played Bust-A-Move, you’ll be right at home here. The original Bubble Witch Saga and its sequel were puzzlers where you’re given one colored bubble after another to aim at even more bubbles suspended at the top of the screen. You need to match three or more of a kind to burst the bubbles and clear them from the play area. This is accomplished via precise aiming with the touch screen, and strategic bouncing of colored bubbles against the “walls” of the play area. If you play your cards right, you can collapse an entire cache of bubbles with a well-placed shot. They’ll rain down in a shower of color, and at the end of each level, they’ll randomly bounce into pots that collect them for points totally onto your score. Bubble Witch 3 Saga includes an older main character (Stella) who’s been possessed by READ FULL STORY AT GEEK!
