From what I could tell from watching the Gencon videos, "Easy mode" has unlimited pause time, which could effectively make the game not timed at all, just let each player finish their roles and move on to the next.  However, I don't know how this would effect the app's decision making for where stuff goes, with it being easy mode and all

Will there be in-app purchases? I can't stand free games that then try and sell me stuff every 5 seconds. :D :D :D

No is the safe answer.

Some people don't buy miniature games because the expense is ridiculous according to them. Some don't buy deck building games because they hate buying new packs constantly to remain competitive. Some people don't buy heavily complex games like arkham because they think games should be casual. Some people won't buy x-com because of an app requirement.

I love the idea of an app making a complex game simpler. Then I can get some more of my friends who are intimidated by arkham to play. Will this accomplish that? I don't know. I can tell you that I will judge it by what I see and not by a gut reaction to something different.

If you don't like the game then I am sure you will find something here that suits your taste. Just like the miniature haters, deck building haters, and the casuals have done up till now. :)

So many different types of gamers loved the new XCOM video game. Naturally you're going to have some division on how a board game would be created.

 

I'm pretty sure FFG wanted to try and appeal to a larger audience by adding the mechanic of having a digital app being an integral part of the game.

 

Not everybody likes board games so maybe FFG was hoping to drag some of those players in with an app.

 

I dunno. Just speculating. I'm getting this game regardless. I have a smartphone but not a tablet. If the game is good enough I might just consider purchasing a cheap tablet.

 

We shall see.

I will definitely be hijacking my wife's Ipad...or my buddies Ipad, or my other buddies android tablet, or my laptop, or the four other laptops I have access too, or the swirling legions of smartphones that surround me...

 

Can't wait to try this game!

The vibe from this game definitely hits a nostalgic chord for me (Played it when I was a wee lad). The demo looked fantastic and the way the teamwork had different jobs for everyone made each player stand out. Once I saw how the app was being used with this, I was sold.

Ewww. The game has required dice?

 

Ewww. The game requires you to provide your own scoring device?

 

Ewww. The game needs a CD player?

 

Ewww. The game needs batteries?

 

Ewww. The game has a required app?

 

All reasons people may not choose to play a given game, and all reasons that have nothing to do with whether the game is any good or not (okay, some of them have a degree of correlation with game quality, but that doesn't tell you about specific games)
