Why I Can't Wait For Puzzle Quest To Consume My Phone Again

I absolutely adored the original Puzzle Quest, and I've spent an absurd amount of time playing Marvel Puzzle Quest over the last couple years, so I was excited to learn about D3 Go!'s upcoming Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest. After matching some colored gems during a demo at PAX, I'm convinced this new quest is going to eat up a lot of my phone's battery.

For the initial release of Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest, players will get to pick between one of five different planeswalkers to control. For the Magic uninitiated that just means you get to pick between five different badasses all with their own minions and spells. I played as a rough and tumble gladiator named Gideon who reminded me a little of myself.

In true Puzzle Quest form, anytime you match at least three gems you earn energy, which acts like casting mana for your cards. Matching gems that correspond to your character's color grants you bonus mana, and once you earn enough mana for a card, it's automatically thrown onto the board. Thankfully, you can rearrange the order of the cards in your hand to choose what will get cast first. Once monsters are on the board they will automatically attack at the end of each turn, and all of the familiar Magic rules apply (i.e. some minions have to be attacked before their hero can be attacked).

Latest Wave Of Lego Dimensions Screens Shows Midway Arcade, Simpsons, Slimer

about X hours ago from

Lego Dimensions is all about mashing up franchises, and you don't need to look any further than the game's The Simpsons level for a great example. Monty Burns may be Homer's foil in the show, but in the game he has to face a pair of powerful villains from comics and the silver screen.

Lord Business and the Joker have invaded Springfield, and the town's not in great shape. Take a look at their home in the gallery below for an idea of what kind of condition things are in. The Midway Arcade level puts our heroes in classic arcade worlds, including sections based on Super Sprint, Gauntlet, Defender, and Robotron. 

Players who want to dive deeper into The Simpsons and Midway Arcade can purchase additional toys and level packs. On The Simpsons front, Homer is available in the level pack, and Bart and Krusty the Clown are available as individual characters. The Midway Arcade Gamer level pack includes a retro gamer Minifig and a level that features more than 20 arcade games.

LawBreakers' First Gameplay Trailer Highlights A Grand Canyon In Transition

about X hours ago from

Boss Key Productions provided the first details from its inaugural game, LawBreakers a few days ago. The arena shooter is set in a future where an event known as The Shattering has altered gravity. Today, we've got the first look at gameplay, including details on four characters and a map set in the Grand Canyon.

Up to 10 players can battle it out in maps including the one shown below, Grandview. According to Boss Key, the area has been taken over by a corporation run by perennial baddies, the Yakuza. From the looks of it, it appears to be near a particularly weird gravitational anomaly. Could that be the reason the criminal organization is interested in the site? Or are they just huge fans of natural splendor?
