Hearthstone DLC
Blizzard does a great job with its single-player expansions for Hearthstone. I dug Naxxramas despite the high price point, and I really enjoyed Blackrock. League of Explorers, by comparison, is a bit less straight-faced, aping films like Indiana Jones at every turn, and it's all the better for it.   read

'League of Explorers' expansion unveiled for Hearthstone, launches next week!

Blizzard time is a lot like Valve time. When they announce a date, you can usually add six months to a year to it. But that isn't the case with the League of Explorers expansion for Hearthstone -- it'll launch next week on Novembe...

The time has finally come for Hearthstone to hit Japan. Although the game wasn't previously that popular in the region (partially due to the fact that they had to play an international version), Blizzard will bring the game over "later...

Everyone dies in this 15-minute long Hearthstone turn

Hearthstone can be at times an absolutely infuriating game, and at other times it can be one of the funniest games around. Every time I see people pull the kinds of play YouTuber The Optimistic Brit has, it usually ends up with me boo...

Square Enix's Triple Triad iOS app is an embarassment

For those of you who aren't aware, Triple Triad is an iconic card game that originally debuted in Final Fantasy VIII. It was so iconic that Square decided to use it in multiple series entries over the years, most recently with its incl...

Don't expect new classes in Hearthstone anytime soon

If you've been wanting some new classes in Hearthstone to shake things up, you're probably out of luck for the time being. When asked point blank on Twitter by a fan, producer Ben Brode noted that "we aren't planning on any new classes...

Browser-based tactical card RPG Card Hunter headed to Steam

Somehow I have missed out on Card Hunter for the past couple years. It released in 2013 and Destructoid's reviews patriarch Chris Carter loved it. I don't know how it wasn't on my radar; it has a lot going for it I'm into. It has cards, ta...

Hearthstone's new card back gives trolls much-needed love

Normally I don't bother covering Hearthstone ranked seasons, but I figured "what the hell" for this one since it has a card back I actually like. Earning rank 20 or above this month will net you a Darkspear back, which is in honor of t...

Tabletop Simulator mod brings Gwent to the table

The Witcher 3 is pretty good, but let's be honest: it pales in comparison to the glory that is Gwent, the card game found within it. We all know that come December, any game of the year awards it gets will be for that silly little minigame....

Blizzard apologises for Hearthstone f*ckery with free cards
