Mobile Update


It’s time for the next Mobile Update! This time the bulk of the news is in Dragon Ball Legends which has been updating quite frequently with new story updates and characters. Pokemon Go consistently stays up as well while Fruits Mania and Lollipop saw a huge decline as I just haven’t played them much lately. I think those games are nearing their end.

In Fire Emblem Heroes I got 2 new characters and I did beat the new story chapter. That’s got to count for something right? Yeah, this game definitely seems to be on its last legs, I need something cool to really whip it into shape! The new heroes were Jeorge and Olwen.

In Lollipop I beat the next 7 levels and am now up to 675. Most impressive I’ll admit but that’s not much when you think about it.

In Fruits Mania I beat the next 60 levels and am up to 516. This one is definitely gaining on Lollipop.

In Pokemon Go I finally caught Regirock! Now I can say that I have all 3 of the Regi’s. I also have Lunatone as well so I’m all set for Sinnoh. I now have 366/375 Pokemon. I only caught 2000 Pokemon this time around. I maxed out Vileplume, Snorlax, Breloom, Manectric, and Salamance. I also got Shiny Eevee along with all 3 of his base elemental forms. It’s definitely cool to see him doing so well. By the next update I should definitely have Celebi at the ready!

In Dragon Ball Legends I’ve done a massive amount. I gained 12 Z levels and am now 40. I also got 16 new characters and am only missing 5 now. I’m at 62/75. I finished up the second part of the Main story as well as the Android 19 saga. I was able to get everyone to at least Level 600 while I also managed to get my top 3 to Level 1500 and another one is closing in on that. The story levels are becoming increasingly difficult but now I can say that I am absolutely ready for them! There were too many level ups to single out every character, but thanks to the EXP event I got well over 2000 levels when you count everyone. Probably more like 10,000 because it was over 300 levels per character with some going from 0-600 or 1000 to 1500.

That’s it for this month so lets see what happens next time! I expect Dragon Ball and Pokemon Go will still have news but Fire Emblem Heroes probably won’t have any since I’ll probably give that game a break for a long while. Lollipop and Fruits will likely have something I suppose.

Mobile Update

It’s been a month so time for the Mobile Update! Quite a lot has happened across the various apps so prepare for a big one! The biggest accomplishments were probably in Pokemon Go and Dragon Ball Legends but most of the games pulled their weight this time around.

In the Ladybug Adventures I have collected the rest of the stars meaning that I have achieved a perfect score on every single level. I also rounded up most of the stickers (Only missing about 10 but rng makes it very unlikely that I will get the rest) and even upgraded my Yoyo. I’ve essentially 100% completed the game at this point so I probably won’t have any updates for a while. The developers told me to stay tunes for updates though so maybe the game will get some more content soon.

In Fire Emblem Heroes I have obtained 8 new heroes. They are: Sheena, Tiki, Lachesis, Julius, Ishtar, Soren, Possessed Robin, and Xander. Some pretty big names there now so that’s pretty impressive. My collection is currently 126/259 characters. I also completed the latest story update. Things aren’t looking good for the heroes as always. At this point I wonder if they will ever get to take this villain down!

In Fruits Mania I completed the next 27 levels. They’re definitely getting trickier as that’s the slowest progress yet. I am now up to level 407. The fruits just keep on coming!

In Lollypop I completed the next 65 levels. I am now up to 644. I’m definitely a lot closer to the goal here as I have crossed the halfway point. Most impressive I have to admit. I’m slowly getting there.

Dragon Ball Legends has quite a few accomplishments since last time. I increased my Z level from 18 to 22. I obtained the next 4 characters so now I’m only missing 2. Level ups are quite easy so I won’t go into depth on any of those. Needless to say I have no character under level 130 anymore though and I finally maxed out one character, the main character Shallot at level 1000. The game’s definitely a blast and I hope they add more story chapters soon.

In Pokemon Go I finally evolved a Slaking. Now I have every Pokemon aside from Regional Exclusives and the Unknown. I also obtained a Shiny Tyranitar courtesy of Community Day. I maxed out Fearow and Rayquaza so those are 2 more Pokemon that I don’t need to worry about now. I caught around 3000 Pokemon this month which is pretty solid since that’s about 100 a day. It may seem like a small update next to some of the other titles, but I just won’t go into detail on every little thing. Hopefully we get one of the Regi Pokemon to show up soon.

That’s it for this time! Some games didn’t have any updates since I don’t have them downloaded anymore like Sonic Forces, Tekken, 1010, Marvel’s Contest of Champions, and a few others while other games I still have but simply didn’t touch. (Sword Art Online) We’ll see how the list looks next month so stay tuned!

Mobile Update

Full_Special_Chrom
It’s time for the monthly mobile update!

In Fire Emblem Heroes I have obtained 6 new characters: Boey, Gwendolyn, Raven, CHROM, Nowi, and Soleil. I’m only familiar with Chrom here, but naturally that was a pretty cool character to get. I now have 118/249 characters so that’s not too bad. Since I really just play when a new chapter is out I’ll never get too close to getting them all, but I’m pretty satisfied with where I’m at. I also beat the latest chapter of the story so I’m staying caught up. At this rate the arc is almost over since one of the generals has fallen.

In Fruits Mania I’ve taken down the next 56 levels and am now up to 379. It’s been going pretty smoothly but naturally there is still a very long way to go before this game is complete. Around 700 more levels I’d say. It’s definitely a pretty fun game for sure, although I do wish more of these mobile games would have a play time sticker on it. I’m always just so curious about that.

In Lollypop I have completed the next 52 levels and am up to 578. It’s definitely got a bit of a lead on Fruits Mania, but the gap between the two always seems to stay at about the same level. Recently a new update added some levels to the game, but on this one I can officially say that I am over halfway through!

In Pokemon Go I caught a Latias so now I have 360/370 Pokemon in the game! That’s the only new addition since last month, but I’m certainly working on finally getting that Slaking. I feel like this is the month where I will finally obtain it, but we’ll see if that’s the case. I did get a Shiny Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard though so that was pretty cool. Meanwhile I also maxed out Golduck, Zapdos, and Nidoqueen. That means that I have now maxed out 30/184 of the unique Pokemon families. I have now spent 16000 berries at Gyms and have battles over 7200 times in Gyms. I only caught around 2000 Pokemon this month, but I don’t typically go out quite as much to catch them anymore. Typically I just get whatever is on the way to where I’m going. Other Pokemon that I’ve caught or powered up at a higher level but aren’t maxed out yet include Fearow, Dugtrio, Chansey, Rayquaza, Latios, Manectric, and more. I’m one step closer to being a Pokemon Master!

Fire Emblem Heroes: Heroes’ Everyday Lives

FEH_comic_title_page
It’s been a little while since I read an anthology manga. The 4 Koma chapters seem reasonably entertaining and certainly better than other gag titles like Rock Lee. I’ll review it when they stop coming out with the chapters, but since each installment is only 1 page I get the feeling that this could last for quite a while. I’m waiting for Roy to show up at this point.

Overall 7/10

Mobile Update


I figured I’d just do a general Mobile Update instead of one for each game to save time. I’ve accomplished quite a bit in all 3 so here goes.

In Sonic Forces I have risen from Level 7 to Level 9. I have also risen to Tier 3 in the Online Rankings. I have unlocked Metal Sonic and Vector so now I have 12/15 of the characters. I have leveled up all of my fighters as well so that game is going pretty smoothly.

In Pokemon Go I have caught 50 more Pokemon since I last updated the stats on the blog. Among those I have finished off everyone in the first two regions aside from Unknown and Regional Exclusives/Ex Raid Pokemon. In Hoenn I am roughly halfway. I have caught Groudon which was pretty awesome and have maxed out almost 20 different Pokemon. I also have a Blaziken now so you can bet that I will be using him quite a lot. I aim to get him to at least 100 wins.

In Fire Emblem Heroes I have obtained 24 new heroes. Among them I now have Marth, Fjorm, Cain, Michalis, Robin, and more. I have also completed all of the current chapters of Book II.

I wasn’t too specific with this update since each game had quite a lot of progress. In the future when the games have slowed down I”ll try to list exactly which new fighters/upgrades I’ve gotten for the games above. I just gotta keep on grinding and improving!

Fire Emblem Heroes Review


It’s time for a new App game! Since I got to Level 40 in Pokemon Go I figured it would be fine to finally check out another free game. This one got a lot of hype back in the day, but I think I got on the gravy train before it completely passed me by. After playing it for a few days I can definitely see why everyone loves it so much. The game is incredibly polished for a free game and it has helped make me a much bigger Fire Emblem fan than I was before. There’s so much to do here that if I took it seriously I would be here a while. It’s going to be more of a side project as new levels come in I’ll complete them and all but I won’t bother going for the more competitive goals.

The game actually has a plot which is already cool. Terry (Your original character protagonist) is summoned into the World of Fire Emblem. The realm is under attack by an evil sorceress with immeasurable power. She has enslaved whole worlds and almost the whole cast is under her power. Terry can tip the balance because he can summon heroes of his own to combat her and he is immune to mind control. You have to team up with the ones who summoned you to stop this foe and rescue everyone who has been enslaved. It’ll be tough though as you’ll have to defeat tough combatants like Lucina, Roy, Ike, and many others. Also, there are so many worlds that as soon as you leave one, the sorceress goes back to reclaim it.

It seems like new levels are added every once in a while, but I don’t expect the game plans to end the campaign anytime soon. The most recent level did end with a big plot twist though. It was one that was certainly expected, but it still counts as progression. There are 12 Story chapters I believe and 10 Protologues, with 2 Xenologues. It’s a pretty good amount of content. I beat the story part of the game in about 2 days, but there is a lot of other content to explore. There are online Arena Battles where you fight other players, Training Stadiums to level up and collect gems, Special Battles where you can fight new matches every day to get more characters and items, Voting Gauntlets, and several other modes.

This game is not lacking in content in the slightest and I probably didn’t even get to try all of the modes for about a week or so. It’s actually very overwhelming at first, but you gradually get used to it as you play more and more. Too much content is never a bad thing after all. If I don’t want to play a mode, then nothing is forcing me to do so. The main currency in the game are Orbs. You get around 5-8 every day for logging in. You can use 20 to purchase a full set of 5 characters. You can also use 1 to replenish your energy each time you run out and you can use 1 during a fight to restore all of your characters and they all get an extra turn. You don’t want to be too frivolous with the Orbs when you start because they get more scarce as you go on.

I mentioned the energy earlier and that determined what you can do every day. Each action costs energy and when you run out you have to use an orb or just stop playing for the day. That’s how they get you as you can purchase extra orbs. I know quite a few people online who’ve spent hundreds on orbs so they could get their favorite character. I definitely won’t be spending any money on this game though. In part it’s because Pokemon Go was my only exception to that rule and also because the game is quite generous with the orbs. I have never been in a spot where I was out of orbs and needed energy or even been in a situation where I was close to that. You would also need to play quite a lot in a single day to approach that limit. It should be a non factor for most players.

Once you’ve beaten the available story chapters in the game, I’d say that the main focus is now to collect all of the Fire Emblem characters. There are currently 168 and I have about 60. The ultimate final goal would be to get all of them to Grade 5 and max them out to Level 40. Of course that increases your time exponentially as doing that is really a long term goal. As such I won’t really be gunning for that. At most I’ll log in every day for my new fighter and eventually maybe I’ll have them all. Even if they’re grade 2 or 3 that’s fine. To improve their grade you have to level back to Level 1 with that character and spend 20,000 Feathers and 20 Shields which are not easy to come by. It can take weeks to obtain that and I personally can’t say it’s worth it unless you’re super competitive in the game.

The gameplay is extremely smooth and highly customizable. It’s classic Fire Emblem gameplay as you position your pieces on the map and attack. All of the characters have special abilities and there are 3 types, Green, Blue, and Red. Each type is good against another one and week to another. There’s also a blank class, but I’m not sure where they fit into all of this. Different characters have different styles of attack like close range or long which you need to take into account. If you want to fight and know that you’ll win anyway, you can set the game to auto fight and let the computer handle the fight while you get a bite to eat or something. I admit that I started doing this quite a lot after I beat the game to save time. You can also turn off the animations for each attack which saves a bunch of time and I wish more games did that. It would be very useful.

Fire Emblem Heroes really shines when it comes to the graphics. They are exceptionally good and easily the best that I’ve ever seen in a mobile game. It spared no expense with the character portraits and attacks. It’s one of the things that really drew me to the game when I first started. It’ll be really cool if they can grab more animated cutscenes by the end of the game, but even if they don’t I’m still pretty satisfied. The soundtrack is also solid. The themes are limited, but memorable. All in all I’m sure a very large amount of money was put into this game and I’m sure that it has made it all back quite easily.

It’s time to go back and rank all of the mobile games. In 1st is clearly Pokemon Go. The game’s amazing and I’ve put in over 1000 hours by now. You just can’t overestimate just how influential the title is. Truly a legend. 2nd is Fire Emblem Warriors. The immense amount of content and reasons to keep playing speaks for itself. I also like the generous log in bonuses as you really feel like it’s worth it to keep showing up. 3rd is Marvel’s Contest of Champions. It was a fun game, but a big step down from the first two as the gameplay was very repetitive. It also had a very long story mode but it was considerably lower budget and you never felt like you were making any progress. Honestly it’s a very similar style to Fire Emblem Heroes but think of the difference being like Mario Galaxy vs Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. 4th is Ingress. It’s basically just like Pokemon only without the Pokemon and the Gyms. It may go up as some point, but my whole area is owned by the opposing team and I need to reach Level 6-8 in order to actually do anything about it. I dunno, it’s fun enough but I always can’t help but think of how many Pokemon I’d be catching if I had Go open. Finally in 5th is 1010!. It barely counts when placed with the others since it has no plot and it more of a very simple game app. Still, I did play through it so counting it is fair. It’s a lot of fun at first, but actually gets less so the higher your score gets. After all, who wants to spend 30 minutes trying to top your score only to come out short in the end? Definitely not me! That’s 6 App games that I’ve tried out now. It could be a while before another one so we’ll see how that does in the end.

Overall, App games are very addicting. It’s easy to see how this one got so far. For every great title like this one there are probably 100 low budget mobile games that are pretty bad, but I’ve done a good job of avoiding those so far. I hope Nintendo comes out with a Super Smash app at some point as you just know that would be really awesome. I finally got Roy, Ike, and Lucina in this game so I’m definitely very satisfied with my turnout. I’d like to get Marth at some point, but I suppose it could be a while. If you’re interested in the game, I recommend downloading it as soon as possible. Even if you don’t want to play it yet, download the game just so you can start receiving your daily rewards by logging in. That way you’ll be extra prepared with a bunch of extra items and characters by the time you really do start. There are still a bunch of features that I don’t fully understand or have barely scratched the surface of and we’ll see if I ever do. At least it’s nice knowing that they’re there if I ever need them. It may be time to get a real Fire Emblem game, but I’ve heard mixed things on the newer ones and the old ones are so expensive. It’s definitely a tough call.

Overall 8/10
