Alright so I've totally wasted hours this weekend playing Marvel: War on Heroes

I too play, (I just entered your referral code since I wasn't really referred by anyone)
do you find yourself putting your thumb on the screen when it has the thumb scanner on the loading screen?

Anyways, I'm...hmm, i dont remember the name i chose and now I cant find it! Where do you see your profile?)

Menu > History.

That's also where you can edit your comment that other users see when they look at your profile.

I'm full up on Team Members right now, although the one I just accepted might be someone here? Anyway, I'll get more spots later as I level up I guess. Or if someone friends me you can PM me here and I'll delete one of the random pubs I friended for attribute points.

I bought Kingturn RPG for my HTC One-V. There's a lot of content there for $5, most missions are revolve around eliminating the other team, but there are some scattered special objective missions. The gameplay isn't as deep as I had hoped, but I haven't unlocked all of the classes yet. The difficulty levels don't make the AI any more challenging, higher difficulty reduces the user's available units and increases the enemy's available units. It reminds me more of Warcraft I & II more than Final Fantasy Tactics but I see influences from both.

Used your code Stele. I am "turrash" in game. Really old game name that apparently I used for Mogabe/Mobage .. whatever

Cool, I just leveled up at lunch so I have room for you.

Well, I am groan. I wasn't sure if it let me use that name when i registered.
Feel free to add me to your team!

Waking Mars plays really nicely on my Galaxy Nexus. It's probably even smoother on a tablet, but I'm hooked on my phone.

Done. I deleted someone to make room and I didn't know, but it takes away your 5 attribute points. Need you to accept so I can get those back.

Looks fun! I bought. 500Mb so it's still downloading.

No brainer!

OK, I signed up for the Marvel card game using Stele's code and played for about 30 minutes. I have no freaking idea what I'm doing. There doesn't seem to be much of a game here... click attack until I get a hyperlink to boost/fuse cards then distribute points then rinse/repeat. Am I missing something?

edit: my name in the game is NavSeer

OK after a couple days I'm starting to understand things now. I've never played one of these card collecting games before so there was some learning curve involved on how this genre works and what the point was.

I'm keeping a couple team member slots open for Goodjers so hit me up when you have a free slot. Player name is NavSeer. Probably going to form a GWJ alliance when I hit 20 since I can't seem to get into the alliance Stele is in (it's always full!).

I noticed that the Catan App is on sale as a "one day special offer" in the Play Store. Not sure how much longer.

I've been playing Cross Me. It's a mix of Sudoku and a crossword, very addictive.

Is it anything like Kakuro? The last Kakuro app I downloaded, the "hard" puzzles were ridiculously easy and I would be happy to find a suitable replacement.

Not really; I liked Kakuro/Cross Sums a lot, but haven't found an app for it I like. Those, I tend to stick to good old-fashioned paper books, call it "analog gaming". Cross Me gives you a grid, and each horizontal/vertical starting line has an number that represents how many X's there should be in that row. You use logic to figure out what space gets an X, and eventually it turns into a picture. It's a really neat concept and a nice mix of logic and artsy crap. Good game.

Sounds like it's Picross, if you ever played the DS games.

ohdeargod. I love me some picross.

I was very excited to see that Cross Me was like Picross when I discovered it a while back. Unfortunately my sausage fingers make it difficult to play, even on my 5" Galaxy Player screen. I'd recommend "For tablets only".

There's also a Cross Me Color. These puzzles are also known as nonograms.

You can zoom in, so I did find it somewhat playable on my Droid Bionic.

I've been enjoying Ski Safari

It's basically a cross between line rider and Jetpack Joyride. $0.99, no free demo that I saw.

I picked up Cross Me today, and managed to get very little done at work.
Great game.

The stylus that came with my Note 2 has never seen so much use.

I've been playing CM Color too but I have found that it is much easier than the OG.

I was hoping this day would never come, double post.

Yet another mobile game ported to PC in which the devs are charging twice as much for the PC version ($5 vs $10). From what I've seen of the game, it looks cool, so if I get it at all, I'll play it on my Asus TF101. Unless I see it for half price (or less) during the Steam sale, which is unlikely.

I do think that who ever designed this puzzle was drunk. Yes, it is complete. Yes, I think it is supposed to be a heart with an arrow through it.

I'll keep you in mind when they give me an extra code for the humble bundle.

Oh my. It is Picross. I'm screwed. I love that game.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Dead Space are $1 right now.

Total War Battles: Shogun is $2. <-- I'm tempted. Has anyone tried this?
