Metal Gear Solid V - Back Again

After completing Game of Thrones I've gone back to Metal Gear Solid to continue with the so called part 2.

I tried Episode 33 previously so did not bother attempting that again & instead went with Episode 34 Backup, Back Down. Grabbed a missile launcher & just destroyed lots of vehicles fairly easily.

I did miss the open world gameplay & do enjoy cleaning out camps of soldiers. I've hit the base limit of 1400 staff so I've been getting rid of any B or lower rated staff to replace with the S or A ranked that can be found or rewarded.

Completed a few more missions & some side-ops over the Easter weekend. Did not enjoy a certain Quiet interrogation cut-scene but cracking on to Episode 38 next.


Clash Royale - Skeleton Army

Yes, finally got it !!

Skeleton Army is great for taking care of tank type enemies like the giant, prince or skeleton giant.

Although they can easily be defeated by the arrows, I will still keep them in my deck.


Clash Royale - Clans

You can join a clan once you have reached level 3. Being part of a clan gives you access to donate & request cards. If you donate you are rewarded with experience & gold.

You can also chat with clan members & have friendly battles.

If you are looking for a clan to join, search for ugvm

I'm level 6 at the moment & hovering around 925 trophies. Seem to be getting quite a few drawers lately.

Telltale Game of Thrones - Completed

Managed to find a bit of time this weekend to sit down and play through the remaining episodes.

In true Game of Thrones style there are some shock sequences & not much in the way of happy endings.

Like most Telltale games if you enjoy the original content then you will enjoy the experience.

Season 1 completed.

Not sure what I'm going to play next, maybe DriveClub or part 2 of MGS V?


Clash Royale - Deck Building

The game let's you have three decks, my first has all the lowest characters 1's, 2's & some 3's this gives me an average elixir rate of 2.6 good for an assault on enemy towers but you have to be careful when facing off against some of the tougher characters.

I tend to play with deck 2 mostly because it gives me a good range with a couple of strong characters like the Giant/Baby Dragon & basic characters like archers, knights & bombers. I do like the bomb tower which can defend a large area.

Deck 3 is the strongest with all the big heavy hitters but the average elixir cost of 4.2 takes a while to recharge.

I would say anything between 3 to 3.5 is about right to have a strong team. I've level 5 at the moment & nearly have 800 trophies to unlock Arena 3.

Outside of iOS I'm still plodding along on Game of Thrones & completed Episode 3 yesterday evening. I've not yet deleted my MGS5 save so may yet go back to play Part 2.


New Game - Clash Royale

Once again thanks to Satsuma, I've been playing the new game from the Clash of Clans developers Clash Royale. It uses a similar style to Clash of Clans but this time you use a battle deck & elixir to attack your opponent's tower.

It has a few timers on chests unlock & you need quite a bit of gold to level up characters past level 3 but I'm enjoying it for the 5 to 10 mins a day I play it.

New Game - Totems

I do enjoy my iOS board games & recently downloaded Totems which has you placing down totems to control an area on the map, your opponent can place the same token next to yours to take control of the area & vice versa.

The screenshot shows me winning a game against Satsuma controlling the whole map.

It needs a few changes on the multi-player like a rematch option with a random map & the friends list needs to only list those that own the game & not everyone.
