Default Here is an example why iPad can handle complex PC games

May 21st, 2013, 20:21
Well for instance Imperium Galactica 2, Frozen Synapse, and Baldurs Gate are just as complex as Witcher. Baldurs Gate may be moreso because of all the rulesand rolls from D&D 2. You have toknow the AC levels, rolls, damages done, how to level. Up sinceit takes so long, etc. its quite complicated if you actually want to learn the game or beat it with a hard class. Also, the iPad has Ascendency which seems wuite complicated as well as Battle of the Bulge. Basically it has got more complex games than the 3ds or vita and even some consoles like the wii and wii u.

Ithink a game that would really work on the iPad would be shenmue but just with the tap sections where you have tomatch buttons and directions. No freedighting just freewalking around and doing the qte scenes. It could still tell a great story and be a great game.

Um … no.

They are ALL ports of PC games. Frozen Synapse is relatively recent, but the other two are OLD games.

Complexity comes from many sources - but let us be very, very clear: we are talking about delivering not just a complex rule-set (along with 1998 gaming), but a thoroughly MODERN gaming experience.

This is why iOS is such a great and innovative platform. Because of games like this:

Hmmm … there is a PSP game that is pretty much the same as that, can't recall the name offhand.

Anyway - there was apparently a pseudo-leak that Knights of the Old Republic is coming to iPad … interesting, but not getting excited until I hear confirmation.

Yeah, well there are games I play annually or every other year, and things like KotOR are amongst them So I would definitely give it a go on iPad. But I totally get what you are saying, and there is a huge difference between good ports and real innovation of nontrivial games.

While by no means a "complex game" as such - it's looking pretty interesting. I'm considering picking it up - though I would have preferred an isometric perspective.

I especially like the promise of a 25-30 hour campaign. I find that most iPad games are way too short for me to bother investing myself.

Have any of you tried WIld Blood for the iPad? Apparently its made with the unreal engine and is currently on sale for a buck. Plus it even supports a physical controller. Review:

Game loft = clone. Add to that uninspired gameplay and you have a Pass from me.

I found it pretty enjoyable - not as good as the PC game, but decent fun and it was well worth the $2 I paid for it.
