This instalment of the iPhone App Review features another 99Games offering going by the name of Jigsaw Wild. Available from everyone’s favourite App Store for the princely sum of £1.19, Jigsaw Wild is as the name suggests a jigsaw game for your iPhone or iPod Touch. By using your delicate touch you can arrange the many pieces together locking them into the designated pattern and producing a familiar and pre-chosen picture.

Arms- Currently a little lackluster compared to fury…the bladestorm is gimmicky in that if you miss then you are pretty much screwed. Currently warriors get sat on because the stance penalties haven’t changed. But as predicted there will be stance changes in the upcoming patch. Come 3.1.
Fury- This is a tree not to be trifled with. With the hit penalty off these warriors can burst people within a few gcd’s. coupled with the new ms effect these warriors are good in arena…especially when they are geared…nothing gayer than facing a team of 28k hp fury warrior, dk and 24k hp holy pally…
Protection- I could see this be more viable in 5′s because of the aoe reflect spell for teammates. But in 2′s or 3′s…maaaybe especially if the enemy has no healer you can slowly whittle them down.
We are a week and a half away from from the release of Street Fighter IV, the next installment from the pinnacle of greatness of all fighting games, and there has already been an announcement for DLC to be released for the game.
Such content includes:
Championship Mode Expansion Pack (free): lets you record, download, and upload matches, and a new points and tournament-matching system.
New Costume Packs (320 MS points for Xbox 360 or $3.99 on PlayStation 3:
2/17 — Brawler Pack DLC Pack will include alternate costumes for: Zangeif, E.Honda, Rufus, El Furete, and Abel.
2/24 — Femme Fatale Pack will include alternate costumes for: Chun-Li, Cammy, Sakura, Rose, and C.Viper.
3/3 — Shoryuken Pack will include alternate costumes for: Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Gouken, and Dan.
3/10 — Shadowloo Pack will include alternate costumes for: Seth, M.Bison, Sagat, Balrog, and Vega.
3/17 — Classic Pack will include alternate costumes for: Guile, Dhalsim, Fei-Long, Blanka, and Gen.
Even though I am the sucks of Street Fighter games, it is always a fun game to play with friends so I am excited for the release. As for the DLC, these are pretty cool for those who enjoy sharing matches as with watching other matches, as well with the new costumes. I’d rather just get the Femme Fatale Pack and see what new outfits there are for the deadly Cammy.
Oh! And here’s a new trailer of the came featuring the top two baddies: M. Bison and Seth
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the reinvigoration of one of the best movie franchises ever, Ghostbusters. The up and coming game looks set to break the golden rule of game/movie tie-ins, they’re almost all rubbish! Check out the trailer above and you’ll see that the humour at least has made the translation into the gaming media. Fingers crossed that the game play lives up to the promise of the quality franchise.
I have to admit, I used to camp out in the arcades playing Time Crisis when I was a kid every time the bowling finished and the parents were in the bar. Blasting those clone soldiers was always fun regardless of how many (or few) coins you had to feed the machine. The best thing though was when it got onto games consoles and there ended the constant stream of coins and therefore all your pocket money into the arcade machines.
I was pretty excited when I heard Namco was bringing the bad guy blasting to the mobile space with Time Crisis Strike for iPhone and thankfully it didn’t get shelved and is now available at a meager $5.99 on the App Store for your finger tapping pleasure. In their words:
“Prepare for adrenaline-pumping action, as Time Crisis Strike brings the beloved duck-and-shoot arcade action to iPhone and iPod touch. Players tap the screen to fire a semi-automatic pistol and unleash all-out attacks on Wild Dog’s army. Players tilt the iPhone/iPod touch to duck, take cover from enemy fire and reload.”
The game features two game modes which should be fairly familiar to those who have played the game on your PS1/2. Good old Arcade mode is there just as we know and love it with your finger dealing out death to as many clones as you can tap at. Crisis Missions, the second game type, provides you with something to go back to after completing the arcade mode with a total of 5 unlockable missions to head for.
I don’t know about you but I’m pretty excited by this, hopefully it will live up to my childhood memories of smokin’ them fools in the arcades just in the palm of my hand. If you’re a die hard Time Crisis fan let us know in the comments and go check it out here and let us know your opinion.
For this installement of the iPhone App Review we will be concentrating on a recent edition to the 99Games App Store line up.
99Games have launched a Chess game for the iPhone and iPod Touch which joins the fair few chess games already available on the App Store. In an attempt to cater for all, there got two versions on offer: Chess Lite, a more basic, cheaper version, plus the fully featured Chess Pro, aimed at both the more capable chess player and those of us that like lots of fancy options. The two versions are currently available in the App Store with Chess Lite coming in at a credit crunch busting $0.99 (£0.59), were as Chess Pro is currently $3.99 (£2.39). Both are around 4.5 MB’s and are rated 4+, meaning those who have kids can start their sons/daughters chess career at a young age.
Hit the read link for a look at Chess Lite and Chess Pro’s features.
Today I will briefly go over the state of each class and there current conditions in arena.
Holy – Need I say more? OP as hell, especially holy how their shock crits lead to another instant heal, or how their ‘sacred shield’ ability is like a passive earth shield. The beacon of light is also very strong. With BoP and BoF they are one of the most sought out classes for arena. And with that 25% mana per minute talent, they like never go oom. Paladins need a nerf.
Ret – they increased the damage output on the last patch by 6%. The vengeance stacks to 15% instead of 9%, I think blood DKs should get that buff too. Ret pallies can put out a ridonkulous amounts of damage…they need to nerf the damage…people without resilience can die in 1 HoJ no joke. It is super strong damage because holy damage cannot be resisted or mitigated. And with the ridiculous crit rate it pallys do way too much damage.

While playing Rock Band 2 on my Xbox 306 today, I had a thought. Wouldn’t it be fun to play downloadable TV theme songs? I would love to rock out to some Beverly Hills 90210, Friends, Gilligan’s Island, A-Team, Knight Rider, and so much more.
HEY EA, MTV, Harmonix, Activision/Blizzard. GET ON THIS!
