Looks like Blizzard is experimenting with Diablo 3 on consoles. No official plans yet they are getting it working.

Riot Games, the makers of League of Legends is now dealing with "big data" and how to scale that to millions of users. As a programmer I find this sort of thing interesting.

Valve wants to get DoTA 2 running on tablets but it looks like the current offerings are not hefty enough to power DoTA 2.

A pretty interesting game Eador Genesis was recently launched on GoG. Looks like a good game for people that love turn base strategy games.

I'm really considering getting Eador. I loved playing HoMM (15 years ago? Jeez) and love games that have opaque systems I have to dig in to learn making this look outstanding. The graphics also look pretty cool in that Age of Wonders watercolor painted kind of way. If anyone has any experience playing it I would love to hear more about it. Also, if it has multiplayer capability, we could get a game night going.

Ill append the post but have you played... let me get the link...

Battle for Wesnoth? Its an Open Source game that is very mature and runs on all the relevant platforms, I even think it has an iOS and Android port:

Its free too :D

Reason I bring it up, is because if we want to have a game night with a turn based strategy game that might work as its free for anyone to download and runs on all platforms.

Very true, although, in my case it would be a game morning. I'd be up for that if we can organize something, but turn based strategy isn't the most popular genre anymore...

Yeah it really isn't. Maybe we can plan something closer to the holidays, ill have some time off to make scheduling anything much simpler :D
