An Infinity Blade update coming next week!

"Next week's pack includes five new weapons, five new shields, five new helmets and a new armor set; enough equipment to increase the level cap to 45. There's also a new enemy type players will square off against called the "Marrow Fiend""

I wasn't expecting this so soon!

I was actually not just expecting an update but was expecting the multiplayer one before xmas. oh well, think they're gonna save that one until sales go down to give it a boost maybe.

But the game just came out last week. They're probably still finishing it.

I want to get this and I so want to be into this game, but I am just not feeling it... the gameplay looks so boring... has anyone else felt this, but got it anyways and were glad they did? Like I said I want to get it but it just... meh I dunno. It looks fantastic don't get me wrong. But the gameplay just doesn't look as solid.

Pros: The gameplay is deeper than it looks. You're not just swiping your fingers on the screen to attack. A lot of technique and timing is involved, both of which take time and practice to master. You have to watch the moves of the enemy, know when to dodge, attack, or parry. It's a lot of fun.

Cons: It does become a little repetitive after maybe the 6th or 7th bloodline. Some of the motion capture animations are recycled between the characters, and there are only maybe 8 or 9 enemies to fight total. But I still find Infinity Blade very enjoyable. I've been having blast trying to perfect parrying, and getting my ass kicked by the God King.

Got it the day of it's release beat it within an hour or so haven't touched it since. I'll be removing it on the 16th to make room

Graphics are very nice and the gameplay feels polished, but unfortunately I found it to get very repetitive quickly. I played 3 bloodlines then got bored. Maybe I'll go back to it someday, but there are plenty of other games I'd rather be playing.

Good news and bad news imo.

The good:

Updates, NOW!

The bad:

NOW, they have an excuse to hold off on the one update players [who beat the game] are really waiting for: multiplayer and the ability to square off against human opponents.

Yeah this kind of reaffirms that the game is not for me. I'll wait for a (probably never happening) sale and get it cheap. Like I said in the IB thread, it's not that it is badly priced, it's just not for me and don't want to pay full price for it. Might get it if I get a shitload of iTunes credit for Christmas or something but not really counting on it. It does look somewhat fun, just look slike it has little to no replay value.

I'm in the opposite situation. I can't stop playing at all. It is as enjoyable as fruit ninja to me, keep retrying over and over again. Everything gets harder so you really wanna hone your skills.

Very excited over the update, cant wait
