Friends on toucharcade - what do they mean?

Discussion in 'Lounge' started by TimHaines, Jan 4, 2009.

  1. Hey guys,

    I've had a few friend requests now, and have approved all of them.

    I was just curious as to what the difference is if you're a friend with someone or not? Does it make any difference apart from showing them in your profile? You don't get any extra notifications etc do you?

    Cheers,

    Tim.

    Its okay, I believe the friends feature makes it easier to send PMs to friends, you don't have to write heir whole name or something

    Just kind of fun... there could be a social aspect to it...

    just imagine.. if there are eventually good multiplayer games, then you have some people you kinda 'know' who you could play with/against..

    the Steam buddy list is a great implementation of this

    I think lots of games have that.. dont need to imagine.

    World of Warcraft
    www.eve.is - eve online

    to name a few :p

    EDIT: if you didn't know about Eve or wow - I might have ruined your social life for ever. sorry in advance.
     
  9. Thanks for the answers everyone. I guess I still don't really understand what the point of asking people to be friends is - apart from the quasi-social contact saying 'hey'.

    That's all good though - it doesn't hurt either.

    I got no friends :(
     
  12. Galcon is probably the best multiplayer game I've played on the iPhone. What's yours?

    Hmmm - I guess that's kind of off topic though - doesn't help explain touch arcade friends.
     
  13. I get by with a little help from my friends...

    I get high with a little help from my friends...

    I'm gonna to try with a little help from my friends...
