Grab It reviews the companion app that was released on iOS for the blockbuster new FPS, Destiny.
I think the second screen thing is really cool, but tend to use it a heck of a lot more watching TV than I do playing games. It's too disconnected from a non-passive act like playing.
Totally agree this review. I'm really liking the app but have found it to be non essential. Actually when I'm just about to go to bed I boot it up quickly just to review my stats and things kick that. Pretty handy to have around.
Nice for a retrospective after a night of playing :D
Have you tried any of the others they mention, Watch Dogs or Call of Duty?
Not those two in particular, but I have tried the Dead Rising 3 app. That one was actually really well done too. You could review your stats in a similar fashion, view an overhead map and even unlock special missions that wouldn't otherwise unlock in game. It's probably the best companion app I've seen, making it a necessary but non-invasive part of the experience.
I'd like to see them updated with FAQs. Trawling through gamefaqs when stuck in an area is really not user-friendly.
The best one are Bf4 hub and commander apps, need for speed network, and the titanfall app is ok.
Yeah a nice accompaniment to the main game. The grimoire is nice, fun for collectors, like a card or sticker book/scrap book. Very cool.
The MGS V iDroid companion app is a bit of fun. You build the mother base while recruiting allies and sending soldiers off to conflict. It also has second screen features like displaying your map, but the mother base game itself can be played as a standalone game.
I've only really used it to look up my grimoire cards. The app is much better for that than trying to look them up online.
The app is better than the actual game...just kidding.
Lol u may have a point
I use it to check for the latest news on the game, as well as check out the forums from time to time. I also use it to check out my stats after a session with the game and reflect on how awesome or bad I did on Crucible matches. My personal best is in Rumble where I was on an 11 killing spree. Won the game at 32 kills and 14 deaths. The app is well done and I like it a lot. One of the few companion apps I've ever used so far. The one thing that is a negative to me would be the 3D character modeling is much lower-res than in game. Also the fact that the lighting for the 3D modeling is non-existent. So everything looks darker and hard to appreciate. Why let us rotate the 3D modeling of weapons for example, when its too dark and often times can only see the silhouette of the weapons? There's some room to improve and hope they do. If they do, it would be perfect IMO.
