Fyi I don't think boom beach has global chat only in task force, so only members of same force can chat with each other.

Ah, I googled. You are right. No GC, Task force chat only. I'll update that. Thank you.

Clash of clans has a global but its poo. Clans hold up to 50 members so if you get an active clan chat is cool.
There are clans with PSC players already in it. Both android and iOS compatible. I think there's even a PC emulator but I have no experience with it.

I snagged some of these games and gave them a shot. Some I liked. Some I didn't. Here's my thoughts:

Empire Z
I dislike the phrase “Zombie Apocalypse”. “Apocalypse” literally means “revealing” or “revelation”. It’s only become synonymous with the end of the world because of the Book of Revelations. In the Bible, John gets a vision of how things end. It’s “The Apocalypse of John.” That’s it. “Zombie Revealing” sounds dumb. I prefer “Zombie Outbreak” or “Human Diaspora”. I digress, though. Empire Z is set during the Human Diaspora. Society has crumbled in the face of the undead uprising and you’re a survivor, looking to carve out some measure of protection against the putrefying horde. Still, it’s very un-PSC. For one, it tries to be grim and gritty. There are no zombie penguins here (that I’m aware of) and it seems to take a smidge more strategy.
  • The Good: Actually, it plays a bit like Warcraft II: you build a building, train some troops, and expand. This is good. I liked Warcraft II.
  • The Bad: I just can’t really bring myself to get into it. I’m sure it’s a decent game, but it’s just… I don’t know. It’s not really grabbing me.
  • Overall: I kind of like this one, and would probably be playing this more if I weren't playing other games.

Marvel: Contest of Champions
The Collector has gathered nearly everyone from the Marvel Universe (Howard the Duck is in the game, but where is Slapstick?) and is making them duke it out. There you go. That’s the game. 
  • The Good: I’m a Marvel fanboy. I like playing with their cast of characters—getting to mix and match my favorites to build a team is pretty cool. Right now, I’ve got Wolverine leading Gamora and Juggernaut through an endless stream of battles. That’s pretty amazing, right there.
  • The Bad: For a fighting game, the controls are very limited. I have yet to encounter a fight that couldn’t be beaten by simply running forward and frantically button mashing. So, you know, basically every fighting game ever. Maybe this changes further into the game—the events show four different difficulties—but starting out? The game is so boring that I really don’t want anything to do with it.
  • Overall: I just don’t like the game. The pathway thing seems more tedious (why do I need to tell the game which way to go when I have only a single option of where to go?) and the dialogue is uninteresting. Again: Marvel fanboy, and half the time I find myself just skipping the conversations between characters so I can get to a ridiculously simple battle system.

Pixel Starships
Okay, so… confession time? I have never played Halcyon 6. I like you, MDI, I really do, but… my laptop is older than my 8-year-old nephew. I’m still rocking Windows Vista. My experience with PC games tends to involve a lot of frustration as it does not run optimally. That being said, Pixel Starships is what I imagine Halcyon 6 is. Actually, there are people on Reddit suggesting Pixel Starships as a mobile alternative to Halcyon 6: “It’s not as good but it might scratch the itch”. That being said, if you’re one of the people who like Halcyon 6 (traitors), you might like this. I guess.
  • The Good: Eh? I don’t know. I played the tutorial and that’s about it.
  • The Bad: I SAID THAT I ONLY PLAYED THE TUTORIAL! WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT
  • Overall: In space no one can hear you yawn due to space being so boring.
 

Summoner’s War
It’s sort of like Pokémon in a high fantasy setting. You have a team of monsters of varying elements that are basically playing rock-paper-scissors with each other. The monsters are all mythological beings: pixies, imps, chimeras, werewolves, cowboys… As you battle, you find scrolls that let you summon a new, random monster. You level them up and feed them to other monsters to bring out hidden potentials, all so you can use said monsters to beat up other players’ monsters.
  • The Good: It’s an all right game—sort of Final Fantasy meets Monster Rancher. The global chat is not as lively as PSC’s (actually, it’s pretty much a breeding ground for trolls), but there is a guild chat, so… yay? Still, I’m digging the game. It’s tedious and repetitive, but that’s pretty much what I like. It has an autopilot function, so you can let the game play itself, but the game makes dumb decisions at times—wasting an AOE skill when there is only one enemy left, for instance. 
  • The Bad: The game frequently prompts you about IAP. It feels like I get a pop up about some sort of package or another after every third dungeon or so. It’s not like it’s that big of a thing, but it’s mildly annoying. PSC spoiled me: the devs knew that I knew where to go to buy credits and never bombarded me with pop ups suggesting I buy some. Seriously, Cassentra and less important people: thank you for not being so annoying.
  • Overall: I like this game. Sure, the art style is annoying (oversexualized chibi characters give the game a pseudo-misogynistic feel that makes one mistaken it for a Republican congressmen), but the game itself is all right. Early on, it's pretty simple. From battling other players, I got the feeling that everyone starts off with the same five monsters. There are plenty of low-level players who have the same team. As you go, you get more options.

Mich, for MCoC, the fights are relatively easy in the beginner chapters. It gets WAY harder as you progress.

Road To Survival is good, especially for Any "Walking Dead" fans, its sorta based on the comics (Sorry Daryl Fans)

Pros: Quick Paced, Very Frequent Team and Individual Events

Cons: Lots of grinding for gear, Events have little variety, and the game is divided by servers. so there are lots of PSC players there but they're hard to find unless you know where to go.
Did I ever order the blue paint?

Hi Mich-

Just to clarify, we are playing "Last Empire War Z", not Empire Z.  They probably have a lot of similarities besides their titles but wanted to point that out. The game has its glitchy moments and has been challenging trying to get people to us in State 430 but I am liking it so far. I hope more people try it out!

Here is some information for anyone wanting to play with us in Last Empire War Z.....

Our Alliance is called PSC/Please Stay Calm. We are in State 430, coordinates are 430 x602 y844.
If you are not in 430, you cannot join our Alliance.  You can find out which state you are in by clicking the World icon in the bottom left, then clicking on your coordinates. The Empire/State is listed first.

When you first download the game, it automatically places you in one of many states. If you start in 430, look up our Alliance and send a message. We can send you an invite to join PSC immediately.

If you do not start in 430, it gets tricky. The game is supposed to allow a new player a free move ("teleport") to any state in the game if their account is less than 3 days old and their base is level 5 or lower.  However this newbie teleport appears to be mythical as nobody has been able to get it to work.

The best way to move to 430 is to buy their .99 cent newbie pack which comes with 2000 diamonds which happens to be the exact cost of the Advance Teleport.  This will allow you to move as long as your account is under 3 days old and your base is Level 5 or less. If by chance you are having problems, wait one day and try the move again. We have been told their servers get busy and don't allow the move right away.

You can also try deleting your game and restarting a new one with hope that you start in 430.

We have 24 people in our Alliance right now and would love to see more PSC people.
Hope you try us out!

Figure here is a good a place as any, but for anyone familiar with Magic the Gathering -- some of us have put together a PSC themed set.  We have tried to keep with stock abilities and conventions so the cards generally balance with standard cards in the official game.  A second set is in the works, granted at a bit more of a slower clip -- if interested in the second set, let us know.

There is one new ability created outside of standard rules called 'Powered' which is better explained by reviewing the cards in the set.

Anywho, been asked to share these ahere - Thanks Rai for hosting these for folks!

So, Pixel Starships is coming to Android, with a public beta out now. As a Halcyon 6 nerd, I'm planning to test the Halcyon 6-Pixel Starships connection. Anything I should know before I start if I want to meet up with PSC players?
Celebrate with me! I finally hit Sentinel!

Alright, so let's say that PSC and Pal had a baby, but it liked killing gangsters instead of zombies. Gangsters paradise is a text based rpg similar to this game back in its heyday. The censor can be turned off, so no need to censor dodge. It is also done in a HTML format(hint hint mdi for PSC 2). It is playable on android iOS and computers. Global chat, gang chat and personal messaging. Pictures and videos can also be shared in the chats.
