  • Games of 2014: Hearthstone

  • Constantlymat 31/12/2014

    I think the Goblins vs. Gnomes expansion was a great success for Hearthstone, as was Naxxramas. Why should the decks, which have been good in ranked play before, suddenly become drastically weaker with an expansion? That's not the goal, but GvG certainly gives you a much wider variety of ways to play each class. That's what expansions should be about.

    Mage was pretty much dead, except for the chosen few players who had the nerves to play tediously long freeze mage matches, where one tiny mistake could result in defeat. Now you have at least two succesful new variations of the class, either with full Mech Midrange decks or the more recent variation with Undertakers, Deathrattle minions and Echo of Medivh action.

    The same applies for almost all other classes. The Feign Death Hunter is a lot of fun and who hasn't been the victim of a crazy aggro Paladin with Hobgoblin and Jeeves or the midrange Quartermaster insanity?

    So as long as you don't exclusively look at the pretty unchanged control warrior, which is afaik still the only successful way to play this class in ranked mode, there's plenty of variations in this most recent expansion. Just look at a player like Lifecoach on Twitch.tv. If I recall correctly he created at least four new decks since GvG came out and played with them into the top 100 of the legendary ranks, some even into the top10 and then there are other successful deck builders as well.

    Hearthstone is tons of fun.

  • Reanimated: The story of Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines

    I remember buying and playing this game at launch, I had great fun even with all the bugs. However at one point when leaving a cavern the game would just crash and I've played it through afterwards.

    I tried to a couple of months ago with those fan patches but the controls frustrated me (how to open that fucking door??) so I continued to ignore it.

    The review isn't good but 7/10 is deserved. This game is definitely the biggest disappointment of 2013. Reply 0

    New EA CEO calls his "creative staff" aka the idiots into his newly furnished office.

    Guys I developed a masterplan to safe the happiness of the people who are dearest to EA's heart. Let's make games where you can destroy everything like in this newest nvidia graphics demo!

    But Boss, isn't that kind of boring for the players?

    Who was talking about the players? I obviously meant our shareholders...

  • Square Enix boss leaves as company announces "extraordinary loss"

  • Constantlymat 26/03/2013

    I'm a PC gamer ever since I can think so I don't share the rage for the demise of the Final Fantasy franchise towards Square Enix. From my point of view this Asian company saved some of my favorite Eidos franchises and successfully rebooted them. I bought Hitman: Absolution and Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam and preordered the new Tomb Raider. I'm very happy with these three products and am eager to play my first Final Fantasy on PC this year. So keep up the good work on PC Square Enix. I enjoy your products. Reply +7
