Rift: The AIE guild in Rift is moving servers on Sunday 1/7/12 due to low population. We were making up nearly 80% of all max level toons during raid times! We’re moving to Deepwood, a more populated server.
SWTOR: There are AIE guilds on both the Empire and Republic sides! Lots more people playing the Empire side though.
How awesome would it be to play with Squids on your iPad and/or iPhone? How awesome would it be to do it for free! Well now you have the chance! Squids has released a new update for the great little game of Squids and we have two copies to give away!
Just send us an email by December 3 on what makes Squids (the animal or game) so awesome and you could win! If you don’t win, you can still get Squids for $1.99 from the iTunes store here – Squids!
Here are the updates including optimization for iPad!
Universal App: The original SQUIDS is now a Universal App. Play it on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch (or all three!) for the same low price of $1.99.
Horror in 3D: A 3D anaglyph version of the recent Halloween map. Go old-school with your red/blue glasses to see the Squid heroes and their cranky crustacean rivals in all three dimensions. Crazy.
New localizations: Japanese, simplified Chinese, and Russian languages join the game’s pre-existing English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish localizations.
Music support: Listen to your own music while playing.Screen rotation: Turn your device and the game screen turns with it!
Plus various and sundry bug fixes and interface tweaks to make playing SQUIDS even more enjoyable. :)
