Hearthstone – Randomised Arena Run #1

October 19, 2014 in Humour, Videos

In Hearthstone’s Arena mode you choose cards from a limited selection to build a deck on the fly and then take on other people with similarly limited decks. It feels very different from the constructed Friendly and Ranked queues in the fact that players are sometimes forced to play with sub-optimal cards, while an other player may have lucked out and gotten the triple or even quadruple Fireball deck.

Magic: The Gathering – R.I.P. Old Friend

September 24, 2014 in Humour, Videos

RIP Thumb

 

In Magic: The Gathering, when a new block lands in stores, a previous block rotates out of the Standard competitive environment. With Khans of Tarkir hitting shelves this Friday, rotation looms. This means that some much loved (and revered) cards are no longer legally playable in the primary competitive format. This leads to entire decks being completely unplayable as they see the loss of their important pieces.

Persona 5 Gets a Cinematic Trailer – Millions Weep With Joy

September 19, 2014 in Articles

We all know them. Those fabled titles that have fallen into uncertainty, that have become a part of gaming mythology. Developers remain tight lipped about their development. Fan sites erupt to fill the void, grasping desperately at every rumour, at every piece of fan art as years pass with no news. It happened with Kingdom Hearts III. It happened with Final Fantasy XV. However what many didn’t realise until the release of Persona 4 Golden was that it also happened to Persona 5.

"What? Turtlenecks are cool."

“I have no idea where my eyebrows are.”

Dating App Roundup: A Metalhead on Tinder

September 16, 2014 in Articles, Humour, Reviews

Tired of being single, and with a lack of actual gaming stuff to write about, I decided to cross a line and delve into the murky world of mobile dating apps. The four I tried were: Tinder, Blendr, Grindr, and Plenty of Fish (POF). Now nearly a month later I emerge a broken man (well, kind of) with a few words to say about each, and my experiences within. Grab some popcorn and gear up for some vitriol. I’m not a happy bunny.

Magic: The Gathering Gameplay (Standard) – Esper vs. Dega

August 29, 2014 in Videos

The Standard season may be coming to a close, with Khans of Tarkir and rotation looming, but a true Magic player plays to the bitter end. With Gameday been and gone, we now have the World Magic Qualifiers to look forward to (of which I can only attend one, much to my dismay). That means we have to keep playing with our decks of choice, making sure we understand when to mulligan, what to scry away and how to sideboard.
