Hearthstone – My little digital debate

For anyone who cares I used to love paper CCG’s, Magic or Yo-gi-oh, but spent a large portion of my time playing a WWE CCG called RawDeal. It was fun, nerdy and actually VERY well supported by the WWE – so winners got to meet superstars, have replica-belts etc etc.

Then it got cancelled – Sad times.

So why Hearthstone over games like Magic?
The answer for me is pretty simple – Its digital.

Digital cards are the future. It will stay interactive, flexible and in Hearthstones case very very mobile. Shall i continue?

The great austerity (card) game – Part 5

So its been pack opening day!

The great austerity (card) game – Part 2

So first few days have been pretty good.

Tutorial is better than I remember – working through that gives your a few simple quest rewards and some gold. Once that was done it was time to grind out the mage leveling.

Suck it Illidan - Cheater!

The great austerity (card) game – Part 1

It’s been a while since i posted anything game related on this site.
Mostly the site’s been relegated to a place where I bitch about people or derail relationships. So this is me aiming to correct this.

I may be a late starter to Blizzard’s online CCG – Hearthstone but I’ve rapidly been getting into it. Great YouTube people like TrumpSC and RyzanTV, both doing regular streams with the lure of adventure and fun deck designs.

Essex Pride

So on a quiet Sunday I decided to do a little exploring.

Twitter had been dropping a few mentions of Essex Pride, and with the other prides having happened on Saturday or the weeks before I decided to put on my journo hat and take a venture down to see what Essex could rustle up on a quiet Sunday.
