Magic: the Gathering – Puzzle Quest | REVIEW

Posted on September 15, 2016 by Jason Nason

There are a lot of puzzle games, and even more of the matching gem style puzzle games. While Candy Crush seems to be the most well known game in the genre, I think the very first one that I ever played was Bejeweled.

For the most part they’re pretty much the same thing. You match up gems of the same colour of three or more and they vanish. You then collect points and more gems fall to fill in the void. If the falling gems make more matches then you get a combo, more points, and so on. The goal for these games are mostly high score.

Later on games started adding in other elements to these games such as RPG battles to extend the life of the games. No longer was the matching of the gems merely the goal of the game but a means to an end. The gems could be used to gain points which could be used to power fighters or other things. I reviewed a mobile game a while back called Spirit Stones that did this well, as did Puzzle and Dragons Z + Super Mario Edition for the Nintendo 3DS.

Rainbow Six: Vegas & MTG 2013 Free on Xbox This September

Posted on August 30, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Free games make the world go ‘round, okay maybe not but they make even the most bitter days just a little bit sweeter.  The next two free games in Microsoft’s ‘game with gold’ program have been announced as Ubisoft’s 2006 tactical shooter Rainbow Six: Vegas and the 2013 edition of Magic The Gathering. MTG will be available from September 1st through the 15th and Vegas will report for duty from Sept 15th through the 30th. Both titles require an Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to be redeemed.

Microsoft’s alternative to PlayStation Plus was announced this past June at E3 and has provided gamers with free digital copies of Assassin’s Creed II, Defense Grid: The Awakening, Dead Rising II + DLC, Halo 3 and soon the two games listed above. We can sit and argue which service provides the better library of free content, but one thing is certain – owners of the Xbox 360 now have a few more reasons to boot-up their consoles before the fall gaming seasons begins in just a few short weeks.

Which games would you like to see on Game With Gold? Let us know in the comments section, we will keep you posted on any future free DLC.
