Avengers Alliance Tactics is the new Marvel game coming to Facebook. Similar to the last game, players will act as a SHIELD agent, sending teams of heroes in battles that are turn-based. In Tactics however, the map is grid-based, rather than enemies and heroes simply being on opposite sides of the screen. This new setup means that positioning plays a role in gameplay, and the 3D graphics mean the 20 available heroes can be seen from multiple angles. It’s likely that more Marvel heroes will be included further after launch. No word on when the worldwide launch will be, but apparently the game will be available in Canada shortly.
There is an age-old question, what is more important in video games: graphics, gameplay, or story? Depending on who you ask, and what games they’ve played, everyone has a different opinion. Those who argue that graphics are the most important may not even know it, but they often will be looking for games that support the highest output of HDMI, and purchase new consoles or platforms as soon as they come out. There are of course those who focus solely on game mechanics – being able to work through the game with flow. And of course, there are those who believe story is the most important, and often discuss the true meaning of games, looking for something deeper within the story that relates to life itself. For some gamers, these divisions may intertwine, but most people can describe a great game with only one of these categories.
