It is important you know that I am from Canada because we spell colour and flavour with a U and sometimes use British vernacular, probably because of Coronation Street and East Enders.
I'm a student in something called 'pre professional journalism'. Whatever that is. I'm a major of Philosophy and a minor in Sociology, mostly because critical thinking and the analysis and understanding of social behaviors makes me horny.
My ambitions include creating a fully animated rotoscoped feature length animatronic musical and to build a 'fusion' reactor in my backyard out of little more than a high power laser and an industrial vacuum. Both of these things are possible believe it or not.
Infinity Blade has been hailed as a serious attempt at making a hardcore mobile game. It uses the Unreal Engine, doesn't require any micro-transaction, albeit those are supported, and the game takes a measure of skill to master.
Toting a $5 price point and delivering on content, it raised the bar for cohesive mechanics and graphic design on a mobile platform. With art direction that stands up to the likes of Dark Souls, the appeal is there. It's dark Gothic atmosphere sets the tone for sword and shield combat.
Infinity Blade 2 is seeing the light of day and in celebration Infinity Blade has become free for a limited time. If you have an iOS device and enjoy eye candy, there is no reason not to download this right now, and you should - because Free is best kind of price. Did I mention its actually a game that isn't pay-to-win? You can play this for more than 20 minutes without it wanting some kind of in-house currency to be re-buffered, ever - at all.
