Pokémon Trading Card Game comes to 3DS in Europe this week

I had a binder specifically for my collection of Pokémon cards but never knew how to properly play the game. Which was fine, because they were fun enough to look at. I did, however, play a ton of Pokémon Trading...

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.

Acaratus brings robots onto the tactical RPG battlefield

There is something about turn-based battles on a square grid that always seems to captivate me. Taking that idea out of the generic fantasy setting garners bonus points for me too. Granted, Acaratus is described to take plac...

Review: Destiny of Spirits photo
Review: Destiny of Spirits
by Chris Carter

After the free-to-play boom on the PC and mobile platforms, it's no wonder why major publishers want a slice of the pie. Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony have all tried their hand in the scheme, and some have been more successful than others.

Sony's latest attempt is Destiny of Spirits, a collection battle game of sorts that does a few things right, but mostly suffers from the same trappings as a lot of other games in the free-to-play market.

Can Twitch work together to play Hearthstone?

I'm over Twitch Plays Pokemon, but it was fun while it lasted for me. And that's not to say I'm bored of the concept of people collaborating to play a game via live stream, generally speaking. Some will be hits, some will be ...

Hearthstone plays just as great on the iPad

As a general rule, I don't play a game excessively during its beta stage. I don't particularly like getting invested in something that may utterly change after the full release, and Hearthstone is no exception. Although ...

Card Hunter is getting a new expansion soon

I really enjoyed Card Hunter when it dropped late last year. It had a refreshing art style, a fun sense of humor, and a fair free-to-play scheme -- and now, it's getting more content this month in the form of an expansio...

Here's how to get Hearthstone on your iPad if it isn't out in your region photo
Here's how to get Hearthstone on your iPad if it isn't out in your region
by Chris Carter

I've seen quite a few people sigh at Hearthstone's recent iPad port rollout, because currently the game is only available in a select few regions, leaving a couple of major countries out of the loop (like the US).

But it's actually pretty easy to download it on your iPad in minutes, using a simple region change method that you can do entirely within your device.
