The latest news and announcements for the Blood Bowl video games.
That gives me a nice mental picture of you which will serve me well in future
Please do not force tablet devices on Android. I hate to see apps I cannot install on my phone despite having 1080p 5,7" display just because a developer has decided that the app shouldn't be run on phones.
Will it run on Windows Phones too???
I thought (and I may well be misinformed here) that newer Windows phones run Android apps?
Not that I know of... But I don't know for sure...I thought (and I may well be misinformed here) that newer Windows phones run Android apps?
Seems you're right, it was just something I recall reading as a possibility: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/windows ... -near-you/
I really hope & pray for "asynchronous multiplayer mode", and for BB reaching out to Windows Phone too - in the near future
A more important clarification here is will the game still run as a P2P matching system? Despite having changed the matchmaking servers you guys are still using the old UDP P2P match communication on Chaos Edition... and to make the game cross-platform compatible it would need to use the same communication system. The reason this is important is that mobile devices are FAR less reliable for P2P communication than desktop machines... while they're capable of it like any other machine, most devices are even less likely to default to allow incoming connections or incoming data, and many mobile internet providers simply won't route new communications to a mobile device. We could be looking at an even LESS reliable "connection" system on mobile than we did across all the PC versions.@Waldorf : To be more precise, as the tablet version will allow cross play with other platforms, the skill logic is the same as in Blood Bowl Chaos Edition. And so it synch with BB1 servers.
Yes, this is absolutely true. For games that last, on average, an hour, tablets and mobile devices are poor choices. A heavy CPU program running for an hour to an hour and a half will be rough on the battery, as well, especially when its making extensive use of wireless or even mobile internet. Now, that doesn't mean there aren't people who will use it on a tablet anyway... and there are some people who use their tablets for things better suited for a desktop machine... but in general mobile devices and BB are a poor fit.Tablets are for gaming on the go, a 10 minute coffee break or on a bus, expecting a hardcore multiplayer session is just mindboggling.
Friendly Reminder: Correlation does not equal Causation - tattoo it on the inside of your eyelids if it'll help.
boardgames are actually a lot of fun on tablet. I would totally go to the park and play a game of blood bowl under a tree.
That's true even with local live players. If the game is well implemented and the rule set is without bugs, then gaming on a tablet can be much fun since you don't need game pieces or score keeping or fight about rules. Sitting on a picnic, playing a match of Carcassonne can be great fun but you'd never do it with the physical tabletop game. Now I'n not entirely sure if I could get my girlfriend into Blood Bowlboardgames are actually a lot of fun on tablet. I would totally go to the park and play a game of blood bowl under a tree.
