Hearthstone's next expansion is just cards, will have over 100 of them

Hearthstone is still chugging, and I had a blast with its Curse of Naxxramas expansion. It added a decent amount of cards to the game (30), and some single player content that kept me busy for quite a while. The next exp...

Would you buy a physical version of Hearthstone?

I play a lot of tabletop games, especially on the card side (Dominion is a staple at this point). They're generally easy to set up and easy to play, but of course there are exceptions -- one of them seems to be a physica...

Remember Triple Triad in Final Fantasy VIII? Check out Eminence: Xander's Tales

Back in the day when I first played Final Fantasy VIII, I fantasized about a world in which people could walk up to random strangers, ask to play a card game, and be treated to one without it being weird. We are not there ye...

Review: Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas
by Chris Carter

This year, Blizzard embarked upon an interesting experiment. Instead of just charging people for card expansions, it bundled together an add-on called the Curse of Naxxramas, and released a different "wing" each week. To earn your cards you had to defeat the various denizens of the temple, which in turn unlocked more modes of play and new bosses to fight.

After completing the last wing, I can say that the experiment was definitely worthwhile, an hope Blizzard does it again -- just with a little more flair next time.

Review in Progress: Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas photo
Review in Progress: Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas
by Chris Carter

When many Warcraft fans hear the name Naxxramas, it conjures up memories of late nights and pizza, while taking on the tough-as-nails raid in World of Warcraft (or as I know it, Naxx). It was one of the most enjoyable areas of the franchise lore-wise, as it focused on some of the more nefarious villains in the series' realm.

Archlich Kel'Thuzad returns as the big bad in Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas, but you won't be able to fight him right away. Yep, that's right, each "wing" of the DLC will unlock over the course of five weeks, and although the first wing is free, each wing will cost in-game currency or real money.

It's an interesting way to deliver DLC, and so far, it's more than enough to get me back into Hearthstone.

Review: Monster Monpiece photo
Review: Monster Monpiece
by Brittany Vincent

Too often, unique and engaging games are passed over due to their risqué content and gimmickry, and Monster Monpiece is inevitably one that will fall victim to this curse.

It's not difficult to see why some may be turned off by it, though -- despite the fact that it's a strategic card battler, it's also rife with many of the same tropes that will turn members of even its target audience off: like "rubbing" illustrations that happen to resemble young women and engaging in adult situations. But beneath the trappings of a fluffy "adult" game is a challenging and entertaining card game that's quite fun.

And believe it or not, that's actually the main attraction.
