Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Preview

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

By and large, I am not a card game player.

All of my experience with card games comes from a brief attempt at Magic: The Gathering in high school and a lot of bored Saturday mornings with Yu-Gi-Oh! when I was too lazy to change the channel.

Random attempts to enter the genre have usually defeated me with dense rules, obtuse jargon, constant mechanic changes, and the prospect of buying hundreds of dollars worth of cards. None of these things attracted me as a potential new player.

Forced Review

No going back

HIGH Clearing a difficult arena within a hair's breadth of bloody failure.

LOW No mid-mission checkpoints can lead to some mindless repetition.

WTF I'm unsure whether Balfus is supposed to be comic relief or not. He's so deliciously deadpan!

00:28-00:48 - With the technological evolutions over the years, has game music lost something compared to it's restricted roots?

Oh, and 100 episodes of a podcast that's been like a pair of tattooed knuckles, offering both love and hate for all things gaming.. Yes, one knuckle's been slightly bigger than the other.

GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 98: Big Red Potion Reunion

Sinan Kubba, joined by just one GameCritic in the form of Brad Gallway, takes the opportunity to have a Big Red Potion reunion by bringing his former co-host Joe DeLia and Eurogamer's Jeffrey Matulef onto the show.
