You might also be hankering for the next instalment. Well hanker no more, because on November 1st, developer Clegames is launching <em>Soul Seeker - The 6th Knights</em> worldwide. It promises more of the same heroic action, with a bit more strategy, plus some added fire (and water) power.<br><br>Taking place in the war-torn continent of Hermes, you play as part of the Albion Knights, and it's your job to put a stop to the five other orders of knights' squabbling. These rival knights are the titular soul seekers, searching for Soul Stones which grant god-like powers for whoever wields them. You must hunt for the Soul Stones yourself and destroy them, so that they never have the chance to use such power against the people of Hermes. That's the premise, but in all likelihood you'll pay just as much attention to the other gameplay modes outside of the main story, including PvP arenas and PvE dungeon raids.  <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Soul+Seeker%3A+The+6th+Knights/news.asp?c=79027'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Soul+Seeker%3A+The+6th+Knights/news.asp?c=79027 Wed, 17 Oct 2018 11:30:00 GMT Get ready for Terraforming Mars tonight at 5pm UK time on Twitch <img src="http://images.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/imgthumbs/na-crcunzxt/terraforming-mars-screenshot-playing-the-game.jpg" width="200" alt="Get ready for Terraforming Mars tonight at 5pm UK time on Twitch" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> Today's the day.

The titular character attacks with poop. The questline revolves around poop. If you don't like poop, you won't like this.<br><br>The game's scatological focus is no surprise when you consider that everyone's favourite YouTuber PewDiePie is the creative force behind it, having partnered with BulbBoy developer Bulbware to make it.<br><br>With that in mind, there's some pretty big expectations behind this game.

They're for hardcore PC gamers, with their mice (mouses?) and large screens and permanently furrowed brows. <br><br>Making any such claim would be a serious strategic blunder, for on the App Store right now there are dozens of top notch strategy games that play beautifully on mobile devices.<br><br>And these big-guns have serious range: we've got epic historical strategy, squad-based sci-fi strategy, stripped-back abstract experiments, and massively multiplayer social city builders.<br><br>We haven't even included the compelling tower defence sub-genre, which deserves its very own top 25 list.<br><br>So, sit back, engage the strategic part of your brain, and start planning which of these games you're going to buy next. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Best+iPhone+games/feature.asp?c=68652'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Best+iPhone+games/feature.asp?c=68652 Tue, 16 Oct 2018 17:27:06 GMT Nier: Automata's 2B joins Star Ocean: Anamnesis for worldwide launch <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-wxdug_star-ocean-anamnesis-ios-android-artwork-2b_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Nier: Automata's 2B joins Star Ocean: Anamnesis for worldwide launch" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> 2B, or not 2B? That is the question, and for the newly-launched Star Ocean: Anamnesis, the answer is the first one. Definitely 2B.<br><br>Yes, Square Enix is borrowing Yoko Taro's android woman and throwing her into the fray in its new mobile RPG based on the classic sci-fi JRPG series, Star Ocean.<br><br>2B is the featured character in the game's Campaign Character Draw banner, meaning she has a much higher drop rate for now until October 30th. So there's no guarantees, but you're still much more likely to get her now instead of later down the line.<br><br>But what is Star Ocean: Anamnesis, anyway? Why, it's a free-to-play RPG which lets you summon in characters from across the entire Star Ocean franchise to fight for you in glorious 3D battles. Expect lots of EXP grinding, gacha, and anime voices. Beautiful. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Star+Ocean%3A+Anamnesis/news.asp?c=79021'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhone/Star+Ocean%3A+Anamnesis/news.asp?c=79021 Tue, 16 Oct 2018 15:40:24 GMT Tomorrow, 5pm UK time, James Gilmour will be Terraforming Mars live on Twitch <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-qfxcpzi_ss_74b5423c1c7f31105b06e36dc345578b8da96f3b_1920x1080_jpg_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Tomorrow, 5pm UK time, James Gilmour will be Terraforming Mars live on Twitch" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> Did you think we'd forgotten about you, our loyal board game loving stream viewers?
