The Grand Tournament - A Massive Hearthstone Expansion Is Coming In August With 132 New Cards, A New Playing Board, And More

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, is a pretty awesome game that combines simplicity, strategy, and luck better than any other card game I've tried. Since being introduced to it a few months ago, I have played more matches than I care to admit and, for the most part, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. That is, until recently. Over the past couple of weeks the game has gotten really stale. It seems that every day I play against the same 8-10 decks that everyone uses and that is getting kinda old.

The wonderful (and awful) thing about Hearthstone is that just as players are refining their decks to perfection to dominate the game, new cards are introduced that turn everything upside again.

Activision's Geometry Wars series is one of the more popular casual shooters ever developed and really needs little introduction. Instead of writing something tiresome, I'll just let you watch the trailer for the newest entry in the franchise, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions.

[Deal Alert] I Sense A Disturbance On The Play Store - Angry Birds Star Wars HD Discounted To $0.45 & Angry Birds Star Wars II Is Even Cheaper At $0.15

Man, there are more Star Wars sales going on today than a Jawa could shake a stick at. The latest deal features heavy discounts on both of Rovio's Angry Birds Star Wars games. If you haven't heard of Angry Birds or Star Wars before then let me introduce you to... Never mind, there isn't a single person who reads this blog (or possibly anyone in America) who isn't familiar with both of these franchises.

Angry Birds Star Wars HD features characters such as Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Luke Skywalker from the original trilogy and currently costs only 45 cents. The sequel to this smash hit (get it, smash hit, like a bird smashing into - forget it), Angry Birds Star Wars II, is an even better deal with the price dropped all the way down to 15 cents.

Razer Is Working On An OUYA-Style Micro-Console That Will Run Android TV For Fall 2014

Most of you are probably aware of the Razer brand through their admittedly awesome and phenomenally expensive PC gaming peripherals. Before the end of the year, they'll have a presence in the Android world as well. According to a press release, Razer will be developing its own Android TV product with (of course) a focus on gaming. It's currently planned for release in the fall, which might line it up with the wider Android TV debut.

Razer has been expanding into creating its own gaming hardware as of late, with its Blade laptops and Edge Windows tablet getting impressive feedback from reviewers even with their sky-high price tags.

Hasbro Enters Mobile Game Development Arena With Majority Stake Purchase In Backflip Studios

Hasbro has been around for nearly a century, and their products have touched just about all of us at some point in time. Mr. Potato Head is a household name, and G.I. Joes have become synonymous what for boys play with instead of Barbies (though I distinctly remember never playing with either). Some of Hasbro's board games, such as Monopoly, can take more time to complete than modern first-person shooters, and since their acquisition of Wizards of the Coast, the company lays claim to our Pokemon, Dungeons & Dragons, and Magic: The Gathering-related memories as well. Now the toy giant is expanding into the mobile game development space by purchasing a 70% stake in Backflip Studios for $112 million.

Gameloft Seeks To Melt Faces And Blow Minds With Asphalt 8 Airborne And Brothers in Arms 3

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may be hoarding up gamers' attention right now with their E3 promises of mind-blowing graphics, but Gameloft is teasing phenomenal visuals that will fit inside your pocket. Asphalt 8 Airborne is due out this summer, and at only 99 cents, you might not be able to find more polygons for your buck.

Asphalt4

Consumers have dropped $59 for visuals like these for years now, and while the next console leap is ushering in a sizable upgrade, do they compensate for the $58 difference in price? And that's assuming the price of next generation games remain the same.
