In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

The Great War Released for PC/Mac
Richard Borg's fantastic Commands & Colors series already has a few representatives in the digital realm. There's Memoir '44 Online for PC and Battlelore: Command for tablets. We've even heard rumors of Commands & Colors: Ancients getting the digital treatment at some point. Today, another in the series made the jump: The Great War.

The Great War covers World War I and...it's blurb time:

HexWar wrote:
-15 scenarios set during the most infamous battles on the western front

-Over 50 unique combat and command cards to simulate tactical and strategic choices

-Make strategic choices faithful to the era with machine guns, trenches, riflemen and bombers

-Lay waste to the World War 1 era battlefield with artillery strikes

-Play as German, British or Canadian combatants


The game offers 15 scenarios that you can play either against the AI or a friend via hotseat or online multiplayer. It's developed by HexWar and the trailer actually looks pretty fantastic. Oh, it's also on sale right now for !0% off.

There was a tablet version in the works as well, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it arrive for tablets at some point in the future.

- Commands & Colors: The Great War for PC/Mac via Steam, $18





Talisman: Digital Edition Coming to Playstation
Not a lot to say here, but one of the best board games to ever makes its way to the digital world is moving to another platform. Talisman: Digital Edition is heading to the PS4 and Vita!

Now, I have neither a PS4 or Vita so this news is a bit "meh" for me. That said, I'm sure there's someone who really wants to play this with friends while sitting on the couch. I've done it using Apple TV and my iPad, so I can see a PS4 version being pretty slick.

The Playstation version will have full online play as well as all the expansions and new characters available for the other platforms. Look for it to land on the PS4 and Vita this spring. Until then, you can find and play it at the links below:

- Talisman: Digital Edition for iOS Universal, $4
- Talisman: Digital Edition for Android, $3
- Talisman: Digital Edition for Kindle, $3
- Talisman: Digital Edition for PC/Mac, $8





Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach Released for PC
Sure, we all love Warhammer 40,000, but why aren't there any video games set in that universe? Oh, wait, there's about a billion of them. Well, one more won't hurt then, will it? Today's Warhammer release is Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach and it looks pretty spiffy if you're into the whole turn-based miniatures combat thing. You're into that, right?

Sanctus Reach is published by Slitherine Ltd. and has one group fighting another group because ENDLESS WAR! This time it's the Space Wolves vs. Orks. Blurb time:

Slitherine wrote:
Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach is a 3D turn-based strategy game like you’ve never seen before: fast, immediate, deep, impressive to look at and incredibly fun! Lead the Space Wolves in their struggle against the Orks through two uncompromising and long story-driven campaigns: Stormclaw and Hour of the Wolf. Command several dozen different authentically crafted units and heroes, with unique and extremely detailed 3D models that bring the universe of Warhammer 40,000 to life.


I'd buy that for a dollar, but it's actually going to cost me $30. That's actually not a bad price for a premium PC title with a ton of solo content as well as online multiplayer. Sold!

- Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach for PC via Steam, $30

Mysterium Released for iOS, Android, and Steam
Asmodee Digital is back on the App Store today with the release of cooperative favorite, Mysterium. Sounds like time for a blurb:

Asmodee wrote:
The official adaptation of the famous board game Mysterium!

Mysterium is a cooperative deduction game set in the 1920s in which a ghost guides a group of psychics to uncover a murderer, as well as the weapon and location of the murder, using only visual clues. Choose your way to play: take on the role of the ghost who gives others clues, or as one of the psychics trying to decipher the abstract "Vision Cards".

In this mobile version, you will find:
• A faithful adaptation of the original game with gorgeous graphics
• A game variant with or without clairvoyancy
• Additional cases and dream cards from expansions in the in-game shop
• A story mode to discover the background of each psychic
• Solo play with AI partners

Mansions of Madness Updates with Beyond the Threshold
We all love Mansions of Madness: Second Edition and Fantasy Flight Games keeps adding more content making it better. This time they've added both cardboard and digital content. The app was just updated to include the new content from the Mansions of Madness: Second Edition – Beyond the Threshold.

Besides the new content, they've also patched up some other stuff with the app. As usual, here's the blurb:

Fantasy Flight wrote:
What's New in Version 1.3.0
Beyond the Threshold, a new physical expansion for Mansions of Madness second edition, is now available!
Introduces new ways of experiencing the game, a new threatening monster to face, new investigators, and new
Mythos events! Add Beyond the Threshold to your digital Collection to access this new, terrifying content!

Version 1.3 adds the following
•Beyond the Threshold product added to the Collection manager
•Vengeful Impulses scenario (requires Beyond the Threshold)
•Gates of Silverwood Manor (requires Beyond the Threshold)
•Fixes minor bugs in What Lies Within DLC
•Minor bug and typo fixes in all scenarios.


- Mansions of Madness for iOS Universal, free
- Mansions of Madness for Android, free

Baseball Highlights 2045 Updates
Baseball Highlights 2045 is the little app that could. Developed by one-man powerhouse Peter Kossits, it just keeps getting better and better as time goes on.

Another update landed this week. Not as major as the last (there's no expansion content), but the fixes are always appreciated. Here's the blurb:

Peter Kossits wrote:
What's New in Version 1.10.2
o Bug Fix - Eliminated flicker occurring the first time that the Play Info dialog slides out from the left side of the screen.
o Bug Fix - Adam Lee and Dead Eye not working correctly in AI Easy level and in the standard solo game. Adam Lee and Dead Eye are no longer available in the standard solo game - since the "opponent" does not have any minor leagues from which to choose a replacement player.
o Bug Fix - "Victory is imminent" taunt no longer being played during regular season.
o Bug Fix - Contact/Error immediate actions not working correctly in extra innings.
o Bug Fix - Phone Only - If the player's hand contains both red and green immediate action check mark indicators, the colors may be corrupted as the user scrolls through his cards.

o New Feature - If player has played a card which will apply a bonus onto future cards, a reminder message will appear before future card plays.


- Baseball Highlights 2045 for iOS Universal, $2 (on sale)
- Baseball Highlights 2045 for Android, $2 (on sale)



Twilight Struggle Gets Updated
Last, but definitely not least, is the spectacular Twilight Struggle from Playdek and GMT Games. It was updated with expansion content back in December and this week it received an update fixing some of the inevitable bugs that creeped in with Turn Zero.

As you should be expecting by now, the blurb:

Playdek wrote:
What's New in Version 1.1.1

- fix rules bugs in Turn Zero, Promo Packs, and Alternate Space Race
- fix resuming a game during crisis card resolution
- fix possible crash when removing influence for Cuban Missile Crisis

Mysterium Ready to Materialize on Thursday
Mysterium was supposed to land on our screens last December, but Asmodee held it back a bit after the digital version of Colt Express was eviscerated for poor AI and even poorer multiplayer. Apparently they have all the kinks worked out because we've just learned that Mysterium will be launching for iOS, Android, and Steam this Thursday.

As we all know, Mysterium tells the tale of a vengeful ghost who's seeking to tell the living what done them in. One player plays the aforementioned specter, while the others play the investigators. The ghost cannot converse with the investigators using words. Instead, they must send visions in the forms of Dixit-like cards.

The investigators' job is to determine which suspects, weapons, and locations these dreams are referring to. As such, the game revolves around the collaboration of the investigators and it will be interesting to see how that works in a digital medium.

We're not sure what time on Thursday we can expect Mysterium, but we do know it will be launching on iOS, Android, and Steam. I'll try to get a release post up when it goes live so you can have links to find it easily, and Brad will have a video "first look" up shortly after its release as well.
