GDC 2018: ‘Valthirian Arc’ is a RPG Character Trainer Coming to Nintendo Switch

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Valthirian Arc is a tricky game to describe succinctly as there’s a lot going on in this game. At its core, you build an academy to train up loads of students in some sort of fantasy medieval Hogwarts equivalent, then of course things go pear shaped and then you need to use your best and brightest students to do all sorts of battling. Check out the trailer:

We weren’t actually able to get a hands-on of this, but based on what they’ve told us (which effectively is laid out in the trailer), I’m super onboard with this one. I love the Kairosoft-style management combined with actually doing something with your characters. Hopefully all of the aspects of this game are equally fleshed out as there’s a lot going on here.

GDC 2018: ‘Dr. Schplot’s Nanobots’ is a Super Polished Matching Game Battler with Character Collection

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

What do you do when you’re a doctor who has created a series of life-saving nanobots to fight off ailments and diseases right from inside the human body, but then those nanobots malfunction and start causing harm instead of good? Well if you’re Dr. Schplot, you’ll play a super fun matching game in order to battle against the rogue nanobots and convert them back into the life-saving little machines they were intended to be. That’s the premise behind Dr. Schplot’s Nanobots from Middle City Games, and we were able to sit down at GDC 2018 and get a hands-on demo of the game in action. I know matching games can elicit a sigh out of many mobile gamers due to the sheer number of them, but Dr. Schplot’s Nanobots features a really awesome battling mechanic and an extensive character collection and upgrading system, so I think if you’re the type that typically enjoys matching games with RPG mechanics then you’ll find a lot to like here. Dr. Schplot’s Nanobots should be launching in the next couple of months and you can see it in action in the video below.

Hip Hop Artist Soulja Boy Arriving in ‘Beat Street’ as Playable Character Next Week

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Well here’s something I didn’t expect to be writing in a million years: World-renowned hip hop artist Soulja Boy will be added to Lucky Kat Studio’s Beat Street [Free] as a playable character. Yes, this is really happening. As the story goes, late last year Mr. Boy reached out to Lucky Kat via Twitter DM to tell the studio how much he enjoyed playing their game, and asked if it might be possible to be featured as a playable character. Of course, when you’re talking about a celebrity like Soulja Boy you’d have to be crazy to say no! It also doesn’t hurt that Soulja Boy fits in very nicely with the “street” aesthetic of the game. I mean heck, one of the bosses in Beat Street is just a parody of 50 Cent, having another rapper enter the fray is just par for the course. Here’s Souja Boy mixing it up with some baddies in the game.

Man, I hope someday I become cool enough I can be added into video games just by asking. (Well, there was that one time.) Soulja Boy will be arriving in Beat Street next week on March 7th and he’ll be offered as a $ 2.99 IAP. As for the Beat Street game itself, in case you were unaware I’m slightly obsessed with it. I included it in my personal Best Games of 2017 list and play it every day without fail. Lucky Kat has captured the essence of what made these beat ’em ups so fun back in the ’80s and ’90s, namely satisfying combat mechanics and decent enemy behavior, but they’ve stretched it into an experience that can last months or even years.

Most games in this genre are quite shallow and can be beaten in less than an hour, which was fine when you were pumping in quarters but not so fine when you were playing a home conversion with endless continues. It just removed any of the challenge. Beat Street rectifies this by having dozens of levels instead of just a handful, each with multiple difficulty levels, as well as an endless Tower Mode. This means there’s always something to do and in all modes you have the option of playing cooperatively with someone online which is incredibly fun.

Beyond that, though, Lucky Kat has built in a pretty awesome drip feed of character unlocks and upgrades that means you’re always working towards something, even if you’re just grinding previous levels for the fun of it. Even though the characters don’t play drastically different from one another, the upgrade loop is one of the primary reasons Beat Street has become a daily play for me. Plus it’s just fun in the same way the classic brawlers were so fun; I can’t overstate just how much Lucky Kat nailed all the important mechanics here.

Anyway, I could blather on further, but the reality is Beat Street is free to download and try yourself so if you haven’t done that previously and you’re a fan of beat ’em ups then definitely give it a shot. Also keep an eye out for the one and only Soulja Boy to arrive as DLC next week in one of the more surprising crossovers I’ve seen in a while.

Apple Releases iOS 11.2.6 With Fix for Telugu Character Bug That Causes iOS Devices to Crash

Apple today released iOS 11.2.6, the eleventh official update to the iOS 11 operating system. iOS 11.2.6 comes approximately one month after the launch of iOS 11.2.5, an update that introduced support for the HomePod, Control Center updates, Siri news, and a slew of bug fixes.

The iOS 11.2.6 update can be downloaded for free on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the update, go to Settings –> General –> Software Update.


Apple released iOS 11.2.6 to address a bug that causes apps like Messages to crash on the iPhone and iPad due to an inability to render a specific character in the Indian language Telugu. When sent, received, or input into Messages, Safari, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and more, the Telugu character can cause the app to freeze up and become unresponsive.

In Messages, for example, receiving the character can freeze up the entire Messages app on all of a person’s Mac and iOS devices. The Messages app then refuses to function properly until the offending character is removed by deleting the conversation with the person who sent it. Apple’s release notes are below:

iOS 11.2.6 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad. This update:

Fixes an issue where using certain character sequences could cause apps to crash

Fixes an issue where some third-party apps could fail to connect to external accessories

Apple fixed the bug in iOS 11.3 and macOS 10.13.4, but those updates are still in beta testing and won’t be released until the spring. Apple last week promised a minor update to fix the bug in the meantime.
