Starcraft II is probably the only game I have ever played that makes me stress a little bit too much. Why you ask? Oh, no reason… I just have to expand my base, make sure my resource income is up to speed, build units, attack the enemy, make sure the enemy doesn’t destroy me, tech up my units, expand some more, restock my army numbers, and… GAH TOO MUCH! There is some serious skill required to be great at the game, resulting in some inevitable cheating. Blizzard have always monitored unusual activity, but they detail exactly how they manage cheating in their latest blog post.
MOBA’s are a strange thing. They are hard to learn, difficult to master, yet, they remain mindlessly addictive. I do personally think the market is on its way to being saturated with maybe just a few too many extra offerings being developed, but Heroes of the Storm is one in particular entry in the genre that I cant wait to get some hands on time with.
So my latest addiction is Blizzard's new card game, Hearthstone, and while I’m pretty useless at it I love how Blizzard handles the rankings so I am at least given a chance while I sit in my level 19 pit of squalor.
There’s a long weekend coming up, and some travelling to do on the horizon no doubt. Need some entertainment, and happen to be tired of reaching three stars on veteran in Kingdom Rush? Well good news, because Blizzard’s insanely addictive Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is now out globally for the iPad.
If you haven’t tried it out yet, you’re missing on some damn good fun in the Blizzard card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. It’s got a great pace, looks great and is easy to learn. That, and it’s completely free, and is structured in such a way that you actually want to spend real cash on it. And now, Hearthstone (HEARTHSTONE!) is getting bigger.
I’ve just recently started playing Diablo 3, on console. And I’m freakin’ loving it. It’s a great game, and beautifully balanced and it has me excited for the console release of Reaper of Souls. PC gamers already have that experience. And they’re also getting a new patch to rebalance the game.
I’m pretty late to the Diablo 3 party. I only just picked up the game for Xbox 360, but I have to admit, I’m having a blast playing as monk with fists of iron. As usual, I am way beyond fashionably late, as the expansion is out for PC. And it has sold plenty so far.
Its finally here, the expansion to the stupidly addictive clickiness that Blizzard gave to us nearly two years ago! I won't ignore the fact that some of you likely had your issues with the game, whether it be of the error 37 kind or just simply a hatred for something it did or didn't do to meet your expectations. You may be wondering why in hell you should now consider paying the price of a full game for an expansion. The simple answer is this: Reaper of Souls takes what you hated about Diablo III, fixes them, then throws in a whole lot of extra content to keep you busy for many, many hours.
