Here's your first look at the card-based Space Wolf

After THQ's dissolution, the Warhammer 40K license was scattered to the winds. We've ended up with an apparently disappointing Space Hulk remake and this upcoming Space Wolf game. What's interesting is that this game is goin...

Koi-koi! Nintendo's Pokemon hanafuda cards hitting Japan

Blizzard has finally done it. Rather than experiment in all of its successful franchises with elements of free-to-play or full-on microtransactions, the company has gone ahead and made a completely free-to-play game from start to finish. The catch? It's a card game with Warcraft-themed characters in it.

I could hear the collective groan across the internet as soon as it was announced, but as an avid gamer and tabletop fan, I knew I just had to give it a fair shake. And you know what? Even though the final game may prey on those who would spring to fill their decks with numerous microtransactions, the beta is actually really fun.

Review: Might & Magic: Duel of Champions
by Caitlin Cooke

Might & Magic: Duel of Champions is yet another contender in this year of our collectible card game lords, 2013. CCGs are being released in droves this year and with most of them running on the free-to-play model, competition is getting tougher with each game I see. 

I came into this particular one with a "you must entertain me, quickly" attitude and was slightly shocked to find out that it actually did just that. After playing for a few solid hours I came to appreciate the strategy and some of the new gameplay elements that Might & Magic: DoC brings to the table. Dare I say it -- I may be even a bit addicted to what it has to offer.
