I'm sure my absence has worried many of you, but fear not!  I return, stronger, and with more hilarious witticisms than ever!  Like, um... well, okay, maybe the same amount of hilarious witticisms (zero).  Regardless, I'm happy to have all you lovelies back in my life.  Here's to many, many more weekends together!

Plarium has been a quiet riser in the industry, the company is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel and has grown to more than 1,000 employees in just a few short years. Very few companies can survive, thrive and  pull off the creation of a new intellectual property in the $36 billion mobile game industry, but Plarium has just launched Throne: Kingdom at War. It’s a game not unlike their others; where players build their own towns and armies to battle against each other in clan-based warfare. Players will construct armies of medieval units like knights, spearmen, cavalry, and siege engines in a Game of Thrones-esque universe. The game features an original story with both player-versus-player and player-versus-environment (co-op) combat.

As a father myself, I know my kid gets frustrated quite easily while playing certain games and tends to give up sooner than I would have liked or passes me the controller to "get past a hard part" more often than not. With co-pilot mode enabled you can be more discrete about helping your child make a difficult jump in a game or defeating a boss.

Co-Optimus filled a niche back then, when finding the features of a game was a search through endless forum posts. Streaming didn't exist. YouTube was a place to find short funny videos. The game blog was just starting to become king. Twitter was barely a blip on anyone's radar. It certainly was a different time and era for covering the world of video games.

Developed by N-Space, who worked on the recent Sword Coast Legends, Halo: Mega Bloks appears to be a solid looking 3rd person shooter with a decent kid friendly atmosphere. There's item building and plenty of bricks to collect like your typical LEGO game, though perhaps it's lighter on the platform puzzle elements and more focused on the action.
