Bethesda's Elder Scrolls: Legends [Free (HD)] continues to add ways to play the game, and now it's ready to add a new mode called Gauntlet. The Gauntlet is a tournament-style mode that gives you the chance to put your best decks to the test against other players. Gauntlets come in various forms and will offer exclusive cosmetic prices among other things. The first Gauntlet, which is also the simplest, is called Rumble, and it will run from Saturday, June 10th until Monday, June 12th. In Gauntlet, you pick a deck from your collection and battle until you reach nice wins or three losses. It's a lot like Hearthstone's Heroic Tavern Brawls. It will cost you 150 Gold or one Event Ticket to enter, and you can get some pretty good prizes if you don't completely suck...

Enjoy Our 100th 'Hearthstone' 'Touchstone Tavern' Weekly Roundup

Welcome everyone to our 100th Touchstone Tavern, our weekly roundup of everything cool and interesting in the world of Hearthstone [Free]. Hard to believe that we've reached that 100 issue milestone, which also translates into me doing this for quite a long time. The first time we published this column was May 26th, 2015, so the 100th issue comes just a bit after the two-year anniversary. I hope you've been enjoying reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it. If you feel like seeing how much the game and the conversations around it have changed, go check out Touchstone #1. Fun times, I guarantee it. And now, enjoy last week's news, today...




I'm not entirely sure why, but water park levels in seemingly unrelated video games have some unique intrinsic novelty for me personally. Maybe because they're less abundant and not as cliche as their regular theme park counterparts; maybe because they're more creative and less mundane than something such as an airport or shopping mall. Either way, what I'm trying to say is I love a good water park map, and therefore the most recent update or Crash of Cars [Free] is totally up my street (or up my slide, if you will). With a new map featuring the aforementioned aquatic wonderland, as well as multiple new vehicles to eliminate your automotive enemies with, there's a lot to enjoy in this latest update, which is available to download for any ardent Crash of Cars fans today...

We wrote a few weeks back that Hearthstone [Free] was going to get some new features, and those new features have just been added in the latest update. The first big feature is Deck Importing. You can now copy and import decklists from the internet or even from your own decklist library, a feature that should make our lives so much easier and make switching out decks faster. The client will know when a valid decklist is copied and will ask you whether you want to use it when creating a new deck. In theory, at least. The other big feature is Quest with friends, the ability to complete most quests during Friendly Challenges, which wasn't allowed before...

It's Wonder Woman time in pretty much everything DC on the App Store, so you shouldn't be surprised that Wonder Woman theatrical content is now available in the DC Legends [Free]  F2P strategy RPG. The new update has added Wonder Woman: Defender of Justice, a movie version of the famous superhero based on Gal Gadot. There will also be all kinds of Wonder Woman-related events throughout June, so plenty of opportunities for you to grab all that content. Specifically, there will be a 9-Day Hero Challenge where you will travel to Wonder Woman's Island paradise and battle in the new Gates of Tartarus environment to earn Wonder Woman: Defender of Justice fragments...

A few weeks back, we talked about King Rabbit [Free] developers looking for player-made levels to add to their upcoming Ruby expansion, and from what I've heard many of you responded to the call. Now the Ruby Expansion has gone live, and you can go play 64 levels that might include one of your own, if you are good at putting together puzzle levels. The expansion costs $1.99, but you get it for free if your level was selected. And those lucky enough to have levels selected also got a ton of diamonds (not the real ones, sorry) and their name displayed at the start of the level...

In terms of offering the full (and lengthy) MOBA experience on mobile, Super Evil Megacorp's Vainglory [Free] has done a pretty good job in succeeding in that endeavor. However, there has always been a desire for shorter, more "mobile-friendly" battles, which is why Vainglory added both Blitz and Battle Royale over the last year or so. With Version 2.5, those shorter battle modes are being significantly overhauled with the introduction of talents...

If you are a Power Rangers: Legacy Wars [Free] player, you're going to like the latest update. This update adds Tommy Oliver, the original White Ranger to the game. Apparently, Jason David Frank, the actor who portrayed Tommy Oliver in the series, helped design the White Ranger's moves. And while adding a new character might be fun, the most important part of this update is how the game has reworked the combat ruleset. After feedback from the community, the developers have changed quite a few things on how you fight. Strikes now defeat Breakers at any time during the Breaker animation, the hit reaction from an incoming attack on an Assist warrior will now carry over to the leader warrior, and recovery time has been reduced so that blocked players have a better chance at countering...

Supercell continues to inject new cards into Clash Royale [Free], and this time around it is the Night Witch's turn. The Night Witch is a new Legendary that costs 4 Elixir to deploy, is unlocked in Frozen Peak (Arena 8), and is a single-target melee troop that does high damage and can take some punishment too. Her hit speed is 1.5 seconds and takes 1 second to deploy. What does she do, you ask? The Night Witch summons 2 Bats every 5 second and summons four Bats when she goes to meet her maker. Since she can't attack any air troops, she can be easily countered with units like Minions, although her Bats can hit air targets...

Do you like randomness? Do you like minions that change mana costs every single turn so that you never know what cards you can play the next turn? Then step right up because this week's Hearthstone [Free] Tavern Brawl, Randomonium, was made for you. This one is a repeat of a repeat, and it will scratch that RNG itch of yours (if you do have one, of course). You get to pick one class and get a random deck. The fun part is that every turn, the card costs get randomized, which is a recipe for silliness. You might get to play a powerful Legendary on turn 1 or play a crazy powerful three-card combo on turn 4. Great fun for you, though not great fun for your opponent...

Earlier this month, news broke that Knights of Pen & Paper 2 [Free] was reverting from its previous $4.99 premium pricing to a brand new free-to-play monetisation model, and there was understandably a mixed reaction to such a sudden volte-face for one of the App Store's most beloved original series. Amidst fan criticism and issues surrounding save files being wiped from the new free version of the game, Knights of Pen & Paper 2 was promptly removed from the App Store, as many of our community wondered what this change would mean for the title. Today, we may finally have an answer - Knights of Pen & Paper 2 has returned to the App Store for free, and has been updated to rework the combat and game economy to be geared towards a new freemium existence...

We recently wrote about Pokemon GO [Free] probably getting Legendary Pokemon this summer, and today we got more evidence of that as well as new information about upcoming features. In a recent interview (that you can find here but will need to Google Translate) Mathieu de Fayet, Niantic's Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, talked about how the developers intend to keep people's interest in the long run. After saying how they learned from Ingress, their other game, that a game needs to create social interactions between players, he stated that they are working on giving more value to team choice and enabling battles between players. Additionally, they are planning on releasing Legendary Pokemon...

It's not an exaggeration to say that most superhero fans are anxiously waiting to watch the new Wonder Woman movie. It shouldn't surprise anyone, then, that the latest Injustice 2 [Free] update has added more Wonder Woman content to make all of you Wonder Woman fans happy. Specifically, update 1.4 has added two new Wonder Woman cards based specifically on the movie. These new cards are the Silver Tier Amazon Wonder Woman and the Gold Tier Mythic Wonder Woman. As you can see from the trailer, the two new costumes look pretty cool in-game. Each new Wonder Woman version has, of course, a full set of Gear for you to earn (grind)...

It's been a while since we got new content for the great Pathfinder Adventures [Free] game, but it looks like we're getting some new scenarios in the (hopefully near) future. As announced during PaizoCon 2017, Pathfinder Adventures is getting 5 new scenarios inspired by We Be Goblins/Season of the Goblins, 2 new playable characters Ranzal and Poog, new asymmetrical goblin dice, and more. We don't have more information or details yet, but I'm glad to see more content coming to the game. Pathfinder Adventures will be coming to PC as well, which is good news in terms of more revenue and, hopefully, even more content...

Most card games on the App Store let you collect cards but not trade them with others, which creates all kinds of issues for those looking to play those games on a budget. Magic Quest: TCG [Free], which has just released on iOS and Android, lives up to the Trading Card Game part of the name by offering players an Auction House where they can make get some gold for their extra cards. Now, that doesn't mean the whole action house thing will work well, but I'm glad to see that option offered in a card game. In terms of gameplay, Magic Quest doesn't seem to be bringing anything terribly original to the formula, and I do wish they had picked a more original name...

I've been a fan of The Sandbox series ever since the first entry in the series launched in 2012, as the unbridled freedom to do anything with a number of elements and tools at your disposal was extremely engrossing and perfectly suited to the iPhone's unique attributes. The sequel, titled The Sandbox Evolution [Free], has received periodical updates throughout its eleven month lifespan, and PixOwl's impressive commitment to its flagship title has seen tanks, zombies, and even Shrek enter the fray. Tomorrow marks the latest addition to The Sandbox Evolution, with an update bringing some complex contraptions that will cause even more chaos in your eclectic sandbox world...

Well this is a strange one- Early this morning THQ released the first season of Neighbours from Hell [Free] completely for free and (so far) there doesn't seem to be any kind of IAP shenanigans to speak of. They are making a point to call this "Season 1," so it's entirely possible they're going to be doing the Telltale thing and releasing subsequent paid episodes of the game with this as the initial teaser of that? Either way, the game started as PC (and later a console game) in Europe in 2003, although in the US we only ever saw the PC release...

Budget Un'Goro Decks, Wild Tournament Talk, Twitch Streamers and More 'Hearthstone' Weekly News in 'Touchstone' #99

Hello everyone and welcome to another Touchstone Tavern, our weekly Hearthstone [Free] roundup of the best stories and videos. And, as you can see, we are up to issue 99, which is pretty crazy if I'm honest. This week we have some cool guides for Un'Goro budget decks—because we all need cheap things in life—talk about the new player experience, one of the most ridiculous matches ever starring streamer Day9, some issues with the upcoming Wild tournament, and more. It's been quite a busy week overall, and we are glad to be able to bring you all those news in one convenient story. I hope you enjoy both the stories and the videos, and I'll see you all next week for our 100th Touchstone Tavern...

The King of Fighters '98 [$2.99] is widely considered one of the best entries in the KOF series, and the iOS version that's been around for a few years is quite a bit of fun. But as long as that port has been available folks in the Eastern parts of the world have been playing a weird free to play mobile game based on it called King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match Online, or KOF'98 UM OL for short. After enjoying quite a bit of popularity in Asian markets, KOF'98 UM OL [Free] has finally released out West...

Gal Gadot, or Wonder Woman if you prefer, is endorsing the just-released League of Angels - Paradise Land [Free], a turn-based fantasy RPG. Beyond loaning her face for the game's app icon and endorsing it, Gal Gadot doesn't seem to have much else to do with the game. However, the game itself looks fun for those who enjoy fantasy turn-based RPGs. The art is pretty good, although on the generic side, and I'm glad to see that League of Angels doesn't offer the usual fast-paced button mashing combat but, instead, offers turn-based gameplay...
