iOS GameCenter tags 03 Jun 2011 02:54 #97430

It's a sad thing that I can only compare my awesome scores and cheevos to Matt Loter's shitty ones. What are your i{Pod/Phone/Pad} GameCenter tags? Friend each other up! You can TM me or reply here, I will update this first item. If you haven't please put your name down on the Xbox Gamertag list and the Steam group as appropriate.

TheDukester = ItsTheDukester on GC.

Anyone needing to feel good about themselves will see that they rank higher than me at everything — except for Neuroshima Hex. I rock at NH. Everything else, though ... yeah, not so much.

I just got an iPad a few days ago, figured I should try out this newfangled tablet stuff. Didn't know I'd need a live copy of iTunes to activate it; I wiped my Windows HD years ago after realizing that I hadn't used it for probably three years. So that sucked but I got 'er done.

"dysjunct" of course.

Is Small World still a wargame?

I only have 3 games that GameCenter recognizes, but my tag is "jhuntin1".

SMALL WORLD is great on iOs from what I hear, but there's no online play, right? I think it's tabletop only. That is pretty awful. NEUROSHIMA HEX is a the same way. If they add online play to that thing? Holy shit.

I mostly want to wow you all with my TINY WINGS scores.

No, no online for SW ... a game I haven't even opened in at least four months. Hell, I'd settle for the 3-player map at this point, even if I had to do an IAP for it. SW desperately needs some sort of update.

The NH guys have announced that online multiplayer is their next big project. They are ideal developers: they listen to the community and they make their process as transparent as possible (without giving away all their secrets, of course). I don't know the timeline, but you can count on it: online will be the next big update for NH.

I'm friending all y'all — having virtual friends helps validate my existence and fulfills my secret longing for acceptance.

BTW, thanks for starting the thread, Jeb; it's an overdue part of the F:AT community. I'm hoping we can get a few more people (eight, maybe? Ten? An even dozen?) and maybe set up some games every so often.

Off-topic: I hope GameCenter is given some improvements at today's Apple WWDC. It's a decent service, but it's pretty primitive.

You guys all shame me scorewise. The hardest thing for me is finding a game I actually feel like spending money on when the description of the app is generally poor. What kind of recommendations can anyone make? I have Carcassonne, Catan, Neuroshima Hex, and Battle of Wesroth.

I like Infinity Blade, played more of that than anything else since picking up the iPad. A little repetetive, but has that Pavlovian level-grinding and it's easy to pick up and put down as needed.

Angry Birds is still addictive although now that I've beaten all the levels on at least one star and am trying to get 3, it's getting frustrating.

Super StickMan Golf is cute and fun. Nothing like actual golf, thankfully. Par Out Golf is a cute idea too; I've only messed around with the free version but might shell out for the full version eventually.

Oftentimes defeat is splendid, victory may still be shame;
Luck is good, the prize is pleasant but the glory's in the game!

sunderlanding

I have zero friends but I assume my scores all suck. But some competition might make me try harder, I usually get bored of iOS games in about a day. This could change if I had friends (there should really be a different word for this).

Everyone should have biophilia .. no it's not a game, it's Bjorks answer to the death of the album.
