    Got this after reading it here and liking the sound of it but it's not for me. I just can't get into it. It's far too random and feels like luck all the time. It's a no from me :)

    Anyone tried Epoch? Just nabbed it at 68p (99c down from $4.99), don't know what the UK price was beforehand.

    Has anyone got a clue why there's so many bizarre reviews for Adobe AIR on the play store? I was kind of hoping the reviews might shed some light on what the app does, but they all read like there's some sort of in joke going on.

    Most of them seem to go along the lines of "I was blind before I installed Air, but now I can see into the future, it's that good!"

    Unified Remote has been reduced to 90p.

    There are probably free apps that do an equally good job, but I've found UR easy to use and very snappy.

    God damnit, when does Final Fantasy Tactics come out in English. It's been two months since the Japan release ;_;

    Big thanks to mrpon for recommending sideloading the IheartRadio app. It's fantastic.

    \o/ used it this morning during the shave, love it.

    Don't forget, long press on a station to add it to your favourites.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    I've not compared it to Last.FM recently, but my previous experience of Last FM wasn't great. They didn't seem to have a great deal of artists. That might have improved, but IheartRadio seems to include anything and everything

    What's the best bookreader for .mobi files?

    Not sure about all the options out there but I actually use the Kindle app for reading .mobi files. Copy the .mobi files to the Kindle directory, open kindle, and the books should appear there. Works perfectly for my purposes and I have not had any reason to look for alternatives...

    Just tried Kindle and I can't seem to order books by author or title. I've got a shit load of books.

    Will give moon reader a go.

    In that case, yes, it won't do what you want. I use Calibre to organize my library so when I want to read something I download it from my Calibre server, copy to Kindle and then delete when I am done.

    Anyone else playing Tekken Card Tournament?

    It's a surprisingly good card fighting game, where the cards relay into moves that your Tekken character uses as if you were playing it normally. It seems quite simple at first, but as you play more and get new cards with various effects it becomes a lot more tactical than first thought. Considering it's a free game that uses in–app purchases, it is also extremely generous in giving you coins and credits to buy or upgrade new cards.

    They are apparently going to be releasing physical packs of cards which work with the game in the Summer, which also have QR codes and stuff on them that let you do other things. Not sure if you could play the card game with the physical cards though.

    Thanks for the tip. I got it and tried it just now. Nice quick variation of rock,paper, scissors. I haven't got any good cards and I chose to play as Lin Xiaoyu so it's pretty tough going.

    But I like the bite sized portions of action and cunning. Brings me back to my days as a moderately good Tekken 3 player.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Playing "Lazors" atm. free and it's pretty good. First 6 or 7 are simple but then the difficulty curve spikes mentally!

    This fremium shit is starting to piss me off.  Why can't they just offer a complete game for cash rather than gimping it forcing people to pay up if they want to play.

    No one buys them.

    I would love it if they gave you both options but Freemium is currently the only way to make any money.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Kemco sale!

    I've never played any of them!

    I'm just going to quote a Reddit user!

    "Symphony of the Origin and Symphony of the Eternity are both pretty solid. I've heard good things about Eve of the Genesis and Aeon Avenger as well, but I haven't yet played them. Dark Gate and Grinsia were painfully boring IMO. Alphadia seemed really cool at first, but it's so easy that it makes it impossible to enjoy."

    Symphony of the Origin looks to be about 67p in this sale? (Converting from my local currency)

    Edit: wow, there's a real link and stuff: http://www.kemco-games.com/global/press_release/sale_a_apr13.html

    Edit again: cheap Alien Breed! (50p?)

    I heartily agree. To make matters worse I've now become so spoiled that if a game/app is more than 2USDs I have to really think about it before I pay up.

    Which of course is utterly ridiculous.

    I think I'm in my own camp here actually liking most Freemium apps. I love the fact that I can play a great game for free. 2 examples recently are Radiant Defence and Real Racing 3. Am I alone in not thinking "Oh no, I NEED that car right now to complete this game". What? I have to actually play my way through it instead? Oh...ok. I've put about 30+ hours into RR3 and am probably about 6% complete, and yet, if I would have bought cars/add ons etc, then I would have finished it already. Erm....Hello? McFly!? It's a no brainer for me. More fun, longer lasting game, or pay to have it ruined for me in a few hours. Mmmmm? Also, being a bit of a tower defense fan and reading people saying "You can't beat it unless you buy the tower packs" on Radiant Defence made the whole game a joy to play. Tough, really tough, but a lot of retrying, head scratching and strategy got me through it, and it honestly made the game for me. It was like a red rag to a bull. Most titles you have no need whatsoever to buy anything to finish, you just have to put more gaming time or thought into it. And I fail to see exactly when (in my life) that this will become a problem.
    Just my thoughts....

    Just upgraded to Jelly Bean on my S2. Not sure if I like it yet. The main difference seems to be the default font. Doesn't feel any faster which was supposed to be one of the main draws (project butter).

    My S2 seems to take about 3 times as long to shut down now I've upgraded.

    Wasn't Project Butter really meant for the Nexus 7?

    I'm referring more to games like townsmen or some other RPGs that seem to be engineered around scamming you.  Townsmen for example has just been updated and with a view to ripping people off.

    Started playing more emulated games now.  Zelda on SNES with my sixaxis
