Re: Hearthstone's next expansion, Whispers of the Old Gods, goes live on April 26

@biffpow

Unfortunately, the coin flipping is pretty widespread. It also seems to run contrary to my RNG hate but perhaps I tolerate it because it fits thematically with how status effects work in the video game.

@biffpow I've never actually used the trading feature, but just from looking at it, you can browse public trades, filter or search, and post both public and private trade offers. You can also trade literally anything from individual cards to booster packs, theme decks, and all the cosmetics (coins, ...

Since I led you in that direction, let me take a minute to explain: I personally believe that resource management is an integral part of CCGs. Those that forego it it are flushing quite a bit of strategic decisions down the toilet. Pokemon uses a Magic-like resource system where not only do you have...

<t>I am also a big pinball fan; I own every Zen table. Looking forward to this.<br/> <br/> Since this is a pinball-related article, I thought I'd mention that Zen has three tables coming next week based in the Aliens franchise. Unfortunately, the only one I saw was based not on a movie, but on the A...

Re: Hearthstone's next expansion, Whispers of the Old Gods, goes live on April 26

I still can't stand - passionately - the RNG in this game. Presentation is top notch, mechanics are mediocre, gameplay is infuriating. With Magic Duels doing everything it can to soil the Magic name, my go-to CCG right now is actually Pokemon, which I think has more solid mechanics than many CCGs an...

With two toddlers running around the house and my PC collecting dust in some remote room I haven't visited in ages, I am iOS-only as well.

Re: Review: Warbits

I remember reading somewhere that I could play a 3-player FFA game online. Is this still an option? Or if not, can we play 2v2 where three of us are real and 1 is an AI (I have two close friends that I game with if you couldn't tell)?

Re: Magic Duels steps into the shadows with new expansion

@neo42
