The Boomsday Project: Hearthstone’s Explosive New Additions

Do you smell that? No? That’s the smell of an explosive brand new card set for Hearthstone! (I swear it’s thematic. Please don’t go.) A new set of cards has been just released for Hearthstone that’s themed towards Dr Boom and his researchers in Netherstorm, a science-based zone in World of Warcraft (WoW). Titled “The Boomsday Project”, some of the keywords and new cards have been quite interesting so far. The Boomsday Project is Hearthstone’s ninth card expansion. “Magnetic” is the latest set of keywords to be added into the game. Just like a Megazord, placing a card with “Magnetic”…

The Hearthstone Singapore Major: RNG and Fun

There’s nothing quite like watching high skill players still fall prey to the most insidious of card gaming mechanics: top decking. Though we pitied the Krannich who was knocked out of the Round of 16 with a Wild Pyromancer draw into Equality board clear, we took solace in the fact that no one is safe from the clutches of RNGesus. The Hearthstone Singapore Major took place over 8 to 10 April, starting with a Round Of 256 before it was swiftly chopped down to the Round of 16 then the finals itself of the region’s best players. many who flew to…

Will “Heroes of the Storm” Weather The Storm?

We couldn’t have been the only ones breathing out sighs of disappointment when Blizzard announced that they’ve officially cancelled “Starcraft: Ghost” last year. At least when it was placed on indefinite hold back in 2006, we had a novel to tide us over for Blizzard’s Starcraft third-person shooter (it is as cool as it sounds). Well, sigh no more! After 13 years, you can finally play as the protagonist from “Starcraft: Ghost”, Nova, in “Heroes of the Storm”! But it’s not a third-person shooter… /small sigh/ At least there’s “Overwatch” for a Blizzard-made shooter. “Heroes of the Storm” is Blizzard’s…
