Magic the Gathering: Banned and Restricted List January 2018

As any Magic: The Gathering player knows, sometimes new released lines can add some cards to decks that are so powerful they can’t be beaten, or are rarely beaten, in tournament play. For this reason, Magic officials come together at different parts of the year to announce cards that are banned and restricted for tournament play. Often times these bans will force players using these cards to restructure their decks for more open and fair tournament play. However, with every Banned and Restricted announcement, some Magic fans will be left disappointed and in need of a restructure if they wish to continue playing their decks in tournament play.

The Restricted and Banned list on January 15th undoubtedly made both old school and new school players have to take a long hard look at the card set-up they were employing. Though the January B&R (as it is abbreviated) only took four cards away from players, these four had often been used to gather energy for some incredible attacks. Wizards of the Coast has said that since the release of the Ixalan line, they have been monitoring the new card’s effects on the standard play environment and has noticed that Temur Energy and Ramunap Red decks have dominated recent tournament battles.

In an effort to combat this trend, Wizards have announced that the ‘free energy cards’ Ramunap Ruins, and Attune with Aether, have been banned, along with creatures Rampaging Ferocidon, and Rouge Refiner.

Atari Plotting A Comeback

Just about everyone on the planet remembers when Atari was King of the consoles. Now, the new generation of social gaming enthusiasts are far less excited about Atari or the return of Atari to the gaming world. Of course, Atari is plotting their comeback with a few new innovative games that will capture the attention of the public and some of their old fans. The hope is that the new games do not end up in a New Mexico landfill like thousands of old Atari games that did not sell well.

New Release Of Social Casino Game
Pridefest and a social casino game are sure to gain the attention of former Atari fans. The company is also taking a look at their back catalog of old favorites to create brand new television shows. Frederic Chesnais, a French gaming industry veteran is the man with the plan to turn things around for Atari. His big idea is to get the attention of those former Atari fans and bring them back in the fold. In addition, they are working diligently to capture the attention of today’s young social gaming enthusiasts too.

Atari Game Over?
Certainly, Atari officials do not think that it’s game over time for the company. However, a documentary is in the works by a major player in the game that details the story about the company dumping thousands of E.T. games in a New Mexico landfill.


Talkspace Professional Therapy Consultation Through The Mobile App

If you have recently lost your loved one or have gone through a breakup, it is natural for you to feel uncomfortable emotionally and you might even feel vulnerable. There would be a flow of mixed emotions crossing your mind at any point in time that would make it difficult for you to focus on anything. It would impact the way you work, the way you sleep, and just about everything. The usual routine life would be shaken for the time being, and it would take some time for things to get back to normal. However, you need to make sure that you do not let your feelings take over you and that you seek help if you feel that way for far too long than you can bear.

Taking professional help should not be something that you should discount entirely as it is known to help tremendously. People who have made professional advice and consulted with the therapist have been able to recover from their trauma at a much faster pace than the ones who didn’t take any professional advice at all. The therapist is learned in the matter and know what the patient must be going through. A person with the mental baggage of extensive scale would not be able to work correctly or even sleep properly and prolonged period of such psychological state would severely impact the health as well.

Talkspace is a New York City-based mobile app that has more than a thousand registered professional therapists. The people looking for occupational therapy can log on to the application and consult with the therapist, share their concerns and get the solutions they are looking for. It is a private affair, and the patients can be sure that whatever they share would remain safe and won’t be disclosed to the third party.


Sega Releases New Social Casino Game

Sega is a company that hasn’t been heard of much in gaming news lately, but things might be changing for them as they’ve made the move to enter the lucrative mobile social gaming market. The company has recently released a new casino game app called Sega Slots.

The game features some of their most famous characters, like Sonic the Hedgehog and puts them in a Vegas-style slot environment that is quite unique. For now, the game has eight different slot machines that mobile gamers can enjoy. Players start by playing one machine, then earning points to unlock the rest. There are various interesting features in the game, such as a multiplayer mode that gives gamers the chance to compete against their friends. While some may find the offering of just eight slots to be a bit limited compared to other mobile games in the casino genre, Sega has announced plans to add new virtual slot machines and other content to the app in the future.

For Sega, entering the casino games market isn’t actually something new, but more of a throwback in time. Back in the 1950s, the company produced a wide range of slot machines that were in use across various gaming establishments.

Whether Sega Slots will be a success remains to be seen. In order to capture the attention of mobile gamers, Sega will need to compete with many established games that are topping the charts in the casino games category across mobile app stores.

Niantic Makes Potentially Fatal Move With Pokemon Go Update.

There are few social games in the world that came out with more hype than Pokemon Go. Developed by Niantic to be THE augmented reality game on the market, Pokemon Go has struggled at times to harness the immense fanbase. Despite early struggles, Niantic hit a rhythm with their title in 2017 with a slew of high-quality updates and premium events. Now, unfortunately, it looks like the company behind Pokemon Go may be making a potentially fatal mistake to their young title. According to recent reports, Niantic is discontinuing support for old iOS devices in order to go exclusively with iOS 11.

The decision by Niantic to make their title available only on iOS 11 devices isn’t wholly unexpected, but it is still equally unsatisfying. Many developers will choose to focus exclusively on a certain level of technology, opting not to have to deal with older titles. However, with this decision, Niantic is essentially forgetting about their core demographic: younger kids who love Pokemon. For many young Pokemon Go players, the option to upgrade to the newest iOS device isn’t just unlikely, it is essentially impossible to do.

Niantic revealed their decision to forego operating with older iOS devices via their official websites. The new update will be released at the end of February and it will functionally make the game unplayable on these old devices. Among those no longer usable will be the iPhone 5 and 5c, the iPad (3rd, 4th Gen), the iPad 2, and the iPad Mini. If you own any of those devices, you can wave at your Pokemon now.


Wild Poker Is an Innovative Social Gaming App

There has been an explosion in popularity of social gaming apps recently. App developers are realizing that there is quite a bit of money to be made it the social gaming industry. Therefore, a wide variety of apps are being released on a regular basis. One of the most exciting of those apps is called Wild Poker. It is developed by Playtrex. It is the only social gaming app that the company is responsible for creating as of yet. Playtrex got started in 2016 and it is located in Israel.

Wild Poker was able to secure an endorsement deal with Floyd Mayweather. The undefeated boxer will appear in a future version of the game as both a presenter and a playable character. This is not your standard poker app. The game is different than other poker apps because it allows you to choose different animal characters as the game progresses. Each of these animals has a different special power that you can use to get an advantage over other people who are playing against you. Once you use the animal’s power, you will need to wait several hands until you can use it again.

It is unknown when Mayweather will begin appearing in new versions of Wild Poker. His partnership with Playtrex and Wild Poker was just recently announced. Therefore, it might take a while for the designers of the game to be able to integrate him into the game. It is also not known if the game will use his real voice.

Porg Invasion To Premiere on Facebook

Disney is launching a free Facebook Instant Games mini game to coincide with the release of The Last Jedi. The retro arcade game is called Porg Invasion, and you can play it with your friends on Facebook Messenger, both on mobile devices and desktop computers.

In the latest of Star Wars themed games, you become BB-8 and find yourself on the Millennium Falcon, fighting off a porg infestation. Porgs are a birdlike creature from Rian Johnson’s film, which is the latest installment of the mega successful franchise created by George Lucas. In the movie, the porgs live on the planet Ahch-To, where the film’s hero Luke Skywalker finds himself on. Like the tribble from the original television series, porgs like to reproduce in great numbers.

Films have become only part of the Star Wars money-making empire. It is an empire that includes games, toys and books. Porg Invasion is just one of a number of games based on The Last Jedi. Other games include Star Wars Battlefront II: The Last Jedi Season and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes.

This particular game has a similar theme as Google’s new CAR stickers, with the big difference being that the Disney game is not being played in augmented reality. It is also easy to play and perhaps a little silly. Though Star Wars fans should find it entertaining.
