We're a couple of months into the regular baseball season, and for baseball fans, that means taking in games and poring over box scores either in the paper for the old-timers, or on the MLB website for the Sabermetrics crowd. For some fans, it also means fantasy baseball bets with those around the office or the in-laws. This year, you should include that it's time to get a comfortable chair, a cold drink, and start up Out of the Park Baseball 17.
It seems odd, considering how the hobby started, but fantasy war gaming is a welcome addition nowadays to the world of an overload of World War II-based games. There's something familiar, almost cozy, about being able to rally the troops to defeat the dragon. We took a look at Hell: Fight for Gilrand, a tactical war game by Slitherine, to see how it stacks up to other war games we've played.
Small World 2 has launched for Mac, and is available via the Steam platform. Featuring maps accommodating two to five players, the aim is to play fantasy societies with special power combos for the purpose of conquering as much of the 'land' as possible. Originally only in physical form, Small World's digital version offers players to challenge fiends to a real-time game across iPad, Android tablets, and PCs via Steam or Days of Wonder Online.
LG's plans to relaunch into Windows Phones became more definitive Tuesday after a sighting caught more definitive plans. The Miracle, seen by PocketNow in a press render, was previously known as the Fantasy and shows LG hoping to catch the relative low end. Its highlight should be a four-inch, extra-bright Nova LCD, although it's rumored to come with NFC that could demand the Tango update coming to the OS later this year.
The LG Fantasy has been seen live for the first time in a leak from an XDA forum member who bought a prototype in Romania. The Windows Phone 7.5 device is now known to have a four-inch, IPS-based display and what looks to be an eight-megapixel camera. The design is a significant break from the Optimus 7 and looks more like the G-Slate.
Newly rendered images courtesy of PocketNow and representing photos of upcoming handsets from LG have been revealed. The renders mimic images of phones shown to the source but ones not allowed to be reproduced. All are supposedly due out in the latter half of 2011.
