  • Step Into Newfound Adventure With Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire

    Premium-Inhalt. In the wake of and the flood of projects it inspired, adventure games have become the latest cause c鬨bre of the indie community. It's a welcome change from the twenty years of cruel obscurity the genre suffered at the hands of action franchises, but in truth, good adventure games are difficult to make, and there are precious few of them. Nostalgia often renders a kinder judgment on games like King's Quest than its occasionally tedious mechanics deserve. The few games worthy of classic status from those early days earned their reputations largely on the basis of quality artwork and clever writing, rather than gameplay innovation. Sierra's Quest for Glory games bucked that trend, providing new twists for players with the standout being the second title of the series, Trial by Fire. AGD Interactive has rescued this fading star from obscurity with a slick remake, keeping the golden age experience intact while elevating the visuals and user interface to relevancy once again.

  • Battlefield 3: Armored Kill Brings All-Out Vehicle Warfare in September

    Premium-Inhalt. Back when EA announced at E3 this year, I wasn't sold. It wasn't that I didn't think it was a good idea, because it is, but the content didn't seem there. They showed Battlefield 3: , which we had already seen back at GDC, and everything else was still classified. It didn't make much sense, and I left less interested than ever. That feeling has stuck with me until this week, when we got our first full look at gameplay of the next Battlefield 3 DLC release . It's pretty clear that Battlefield Premium was a reaction to the wild success of Call of Duty: Elite, but it also shouldn't have taken 8 months after release for EA to show us something new. Sure, they released , but that pack was available well before Battlefield Premium was even announced. That isn't very persuasive to the dedicated Battlefield fans (the ones Premium is designed for) who had already purchased that DLC pack; in a way, they were punished for being early supporters.Close Quarters is available now and is probably the first justifiable reason to purchase Battlefield Premium. If you're already going to be spending $15 and you enjoy Battlefield 3 so much that you're probably going to purchase the other three DLC packs anyway, it makes sense to drop $50 on Battlefield Premium. But while Close Quarters delivered more Battlefield 3 content, it doesn't really offer any new experiences. It's all tight maps without any vehicles; that isn't what Battlefield is about, and it fails to differentiate the Battlefield 3 multiplayer game from Call of Duty.

  • Big Win Baseball for iPhone and iPad

    Premium-Inhalt. represents an achievement of sorts. It seemingly requires very little skill, doesn't seem too rely much on strategy, and has little objective outside of acquiring an in-game currency that helps you to win baseball games to earn more in-game currency. It's the triple crown of pointlessness. If that's the sort of thing that appeals to you, then by all means, download the freemium offering from . If you're like me, though, you may be left wondering when games became more concerned with micropayments than they are with keeping you entertained.--
