Thanks all for the Paladin deck suggestions. I hadn't actually used Hearthpwn before.
Just had an 8-win Arena run brought to an end by Deathwing. I had Keeper of Uldaman in hand to bring it down...
Cool, thanks for that.
I am sometimes struck by the desire to post a comment on the main site, but 'Lethe' is already taken over there and I invariably lose interest before arriving at a satisfactory solution.
No idea, I guess that depends on how successful the PC release of VC was. In any case the first hurdle is whether or not the game will be released outside Japan even on PS4. I know that there is a...
Despite the ridiculous funbags, Selvaria Bles was/is an interesting character.
New Valkyria game (+ HD remaster of Valkyria Chronicles) incoming:
Hope you like big swords.

Hillary Clinton too is positioning herself as more of a hawk than Obama, and has the record to back it up. Symbolically, it seems almost certain that the US is going to become more actively and...

Another good article from the "don't be stupid" school of analysis, this one from Rosa Brooks for Foreign Policy magazine. My cynical commentary:
Of course it is entirely reasonable to bemoan...

Not sure why people are talking about a legacy browser like Internet Explorer when Microsoft has moved to Edge now. Do people still talk about "Android Browser" for Android phones when Google has...

It's certainly as much of an argument as the frankly religiously-inspired claim that human nature doesn't change. And given the absolutist nature of the claim it only requires a single valid piece...

On the contrary, I would argue that the evidence is overwhelmingly to the effect that human nature has changed, does change, and will continue to change.
Of course that brings us to the question...
After an interminable "win 5 games with Paladin (or Priest)" quest I'm closer than ever to dusting my Paladin cards for Malygos and change. The class is just boring (he says whilst having the golden...

Which will come first, flying cars and vacations to Mars, or a simple acknowledgment that beliefs guide behavior and that certain nationalist ideas— territoriality, sovereignty, serving and dying for...

Why do you think Israel is treating and releasing wounded Al Qaida fighters to re-enter the fight against Assad? It's because they don't rate Sunni Islamists as a threat even when they are right next...

I was specifically talking about ISIS' (and other Islamic movements) relations and attitudes towards the west, in response to your silly claim that "they want to kill us because we are more tolerant...

I don't have many links because most of my knowledge comes from a course I did a few years ago on the Cold War in East and South-East Asia. It was one of the best courses I've ever taken, led by one...

And as Faulkner wrote, "the past isn't over. It isn't even past."
Some interesting morsels to think about:
The current President of South Korea, Park Guen-hye, is the daughter of the military...

Of course it is impossible to tell an account of contemporary Korea in its North and South aspects without reference to the division that was imposed upon Korea by the Soviets and Americans after...
15-11-2015, 08:32 PM
I think you have to start with the conception of Korea as a unified nation, one that was subjected to Japanese occupation (or colonialism) in the early 20th century. And just as happened elsewhere,...

Given South Korea's history, it is a safe assumption that this is true there as well.
Since my post about my first ever 7-win arena run, I've recorded two more 7-win runs and just now a new record of 9 wins. Interspersed with those I've also had much less successful runs, including a...

Apparently a Syrian passport was discovered in the vicinity of one of the attackers (courtesy of The Guardian, not Breitbart) who had allegedly passed through several European countries posing as a...

Hi, George Bush.
Of course there is something to negotiate. They want to realise their vision for a perfect society and for the west to stop fucking with it, and to stop supporting the other...

By "threat" I did not mean "existential threat", and this does not reflect how nuclear weapons have been used historically. Japan was not an existential threat to the United States when it was bombed...

I didn't say that killing tens of thousands of innocent people in retaliation was justified. Indeed, I have a fairly strong intuition that it isn't. But such sentiments are unable to explain the...
