Playdigious has just revealed that it's bringing Shiro Games' hit real-time strategy game Northgard to Android and iOS sometime soon. While details are light, the publisher has released a new teaser trailer in celebration of this event.
Dead Cells is one of the few mainstays across all of my Android devices. It's easily one of the best platformers on mobile, but better than that, the developer is active, and so The Bad Seed DLC has made its way to Android as of this morning. You can pick up this DLC for $3.99, which basically serves as an expansion to the core game. Best of all, the main title is on sale today for half off in celebration of The Bad Seed's release, so if you've yet to snag a copy of Dead Cells on Android, you have until April 6th to pick it for $4.99.
To say that DLC is a growing problem would be an understatement. Of the last five games I've reviewed for this site, all of them have had some form of in-app purchases to expand the game or unlock content. Sometimes it's awful, sometimes it's not so bad, but all of them guarantee you only get most of a game. A new service called Pocket Change, however, wants to let game developers charge on a per-play basis. This is beyond scummy.
Going From Bad...
Back before DLC became a common term amongst gamers, we still paid for extra content. Whether we called them "expansion packs", "map packs", or "Pokemon Every Color Of The Friggin' Rainbow", we would pay money for new content to extend games we enjoyed.
