Gameloft live app

Has anyone checked out the Gameloft Live app on Android yet. Should be on iOS soon and curious about it.

Well that's why I am curious. Specifically how much interaction it has with the games. I'm still into Order & Chaos, Modern Combat 3, TinTin, and Asphalt 6; among others. I do understand that there are a lot of Gameloft haters, but I am not one of them.

Gameloft Live is, or was, the only online iOS service whose achievement system remotely interested me. This has been lessoned somewhat by their partial switch to Freemium gaming. There are so many casual/social games that utilize services like Openfeint and Game Center, that the achievements "earned" from those services don't mean anything. The grand sum of Game Center achievements that any one person has accumulated holds no value, because Game Center is over saturated with 0.99c mini games that essentially give their achievements away for nothing, just for you playing something that, in my opinion, barely amounts to a game at all. You didn't earn or really "achieve" anything. The whole becomes watered down and pointless.

Gameloft, on the other hand, has very few games that don't require at least some level of actual achievement in order to unlock various achievements.

I don't care about the service itself, but it is handy to add friends to play with them on MC3. I wish this new live app would bring voice chat to mc3, its frustrating when team mates do stuff you dont want them to do...

Personally, I'm rather excited to see how this will turn out.

When I saw this post my first thought was oh Gameloft are probably trying to sell user data now. You can call my cynical but I'm probably right anyway.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

If they were doing that, then they could have been doing that over the last few years, you're still using the same Gameloft Live account as you were years ago here, it's not like you have to sign up for a new one.

How's the service? While playing MC3, I noticed you were online on Gameloft Live for Android.

I might make a video of it once I've gone to the Apple Store and replaced my iPod... (Power button is stuck).

I think my NOVA background thingy in the app is pretty cool!
