Mech Guardian - $1.99->Free




I found it beautiful but boring and hampered by paidmium qualities, syntheticvoid loved it. Now it's free(mium) so you can make up your own mind.

Dear God it's beautiful.

Paidmium/Freemium though? Yeah, I'm full up on even trying FTP stuff these days. Shame so many devs are going this way...

I could never give up.

According to SV, the IAP is not at all necessary to progress or compete on the leaderboards. Personally, if it smells like freemium, I don't want it stinking up my device, but that's more of a philosophical stance than anything else. If you don't mind games with a bunch of IAP as long as you can get by without them, you might like this. Though ultimately, there still wasn't enough variety in the gameplay for me.

Teah, I've stopped updating the .ipa files stored on my computer. If I do update and I'm unsure of the result, I pull the old file out of the recycle bin for storage.

No that it really matters unless I figure out itunes and how to sync my devices without screwing everything up. One of my first experiences hooking up to a device to iTunes resulted in my ipod wiped bare because of some stupid duplicate file error. Frankly, I don't even understand syncing. I don't always want the data on different devices to be in sync; after all, I screw crap up...and don't want everything messed up as a result. I just want to transfer the data I want to, where I want to, when I want to. I don't think I'm asking for much, just some good old fashioned drag and drop itunes interface.

Well, I guess I strayed a bit off topic...

Personally? It's gradually becoming philosophical for me. I am growing so F'ing tired of the whole, "Or the game could be even more enjoyable if.." BS. Sell me the game already, or don't. You choice.
