You can expect the expansion to bring 135 new cards themed around a formidable gang of evildoers, and for a limited time players can claim a free Legendary minion card by logging in. Read More

Three days ago I wrote about the upcoming release of Beamdog's Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear for Android. It was scheduled to hit the Play Store on the 8th, and it actually released on time. Essentially this is a port of the standalone expansion for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. It uses the same engine as the Enhanced Edition, which means it looks and plays exactly like the rest of Beamdog's CRPGs. So if you enjoyed their previous releases, this new 30-hour campaign should offer plenty more fun within the Baldur's Gate universe. Read More

Surprisingly an official tweet from the developer states that this expansion is coming to Android as a 30-hour standalone release on March 8th, which is excitingly only 3 days away. Read More

Blizzard's Warcraft setting used to be pretty straight high fantasy - elves, orcs, dwarves, various flavors of monsters. but after a couple of decades of strategy games and MMO action, the World has developed its own flavor. Much like Terry Pratchett's Discworld, Azeroth is sort of fluid: its fantasy tropes can be teased and prodded into more or less any genre of storytelling, so long as you don't object to seeing the occasional zombie or minotaur in your high-stakes heist plot.

While perhaps my own involvement with Blizzard Entertainment’s Hearthstone has waned in recent months, due in no small part to other games that have nabbed my attention, the online card-based arena battle game is no less extremely popular.
