Mean Streets Of Gadgetzan Announced For Hearthstone

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft [official site] is in a bit of an interesting spot right now. It feels like a lot of its regular players are starting to, dare I say it, get bored of this arm of Blizzard’s money-printing machine. But today, as part Blizzard’s tenth annual Californian BlizzCon convention, the game saw Mean Streets of Gadgetzan – its fourth expansion – officially unveiled.

Goblins vs Gnomes Arrives At The Hearthstone Tavern

Hearthstone's Goblins vs Gnomes expansion is finally out, meaning there are more than 120 new Warcrafty cards in the game with which to bolster your deck potential. Or, y'know, more cards which you think have bolstered your deck potential but it turns out you've accidentally done something which makes you explode yourself with the power of overthinking and hubris.

Hearthstone: Goblins Vs. Gnomes Clanking Out Next Week

That's a nice-looking Hearthstone deck you've got there. What's that, a wolf, yeah? Cool, cool. And some dogs? A load of forest friends hanging out? Great, great, lovely. Here's a thought: why not replace them with bombs and robots? Those are cool. All the cool kids do robots now. The free-to-play card game's technowizarding expansion Goblins vs. Gnomes will launch next week, Blizzard have announced.…

Hearthstone Banwave Is Warning Shot To Botters

Beware, Hearthstone bot users. Well, beware-ish. Blizzard have followed up their forum post from August about botting being a violation of the Hearthstone terms of service and have banned several thousand Hearthstone accounts until 2015. "As we’ve stated, fair play is at the core of the Hearthstone experience, and cheating and botting will not be tolerated," said Blizzard via an official blog post by community…

You’re Probably Prepared: Curse of Naxxramas Released

As we enter the third year of the Valve-Blizzard-Riot war for all of the money, everywhere, ever, the latest offensive from the mega-juggernaut weather system has arrived. While the above picture is supposedly a marketing image, I choose to believe it's a photograph of Mike Morhaime offering up this morsel to those who'd broken the Hearthstone habit. Curse of Naxxramas is the first expansion to…

Esports Org Divides Men & Women, Changes After Outcry

There are many ways to go about legitimizing a sport. Cleaning up your broadcast, treating players well and ensuring they have good post-pro-career options, maybe referring to players by real names instead of handles like "Balls," etc. I would say, then, that the Finnish Assembly eSports Tournament was on The Wrong Track. They decided to prohibit women from competing against men in games like Hearthstone and…

Merry Naxxramas: Hearthstone Single-Player Announced

The wonder and terror of collectible card games is that they evolve and expand over time to continue demanding your time and money and attention and love and it's just too much and I can't deal with it, as I may have mentioned earlier today. Blizzard are hooked into this cruel cycle with Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and today announced the first major addition to…

Burning Down The House: Hearthstone Enters Open Beta

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a tremendously dull name for a game, but let's unpick this. The game is the hearthstone, the bottom of a fireplace. The players are the kindling, being rapidly consumed in that fiery furnace. The closed beta is the flames, locked in place so only those lucky enough to have a key can enter. Only now the fire is spreading. North…

Crafting A Better War: Hearthstone Open Beta Delayed

Are all of your friends in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft's closed beta? Have they replaced the you-shaped hole in their lives with shiny virtual trading cards? Well, for one, you should probably get new friends. Yours sound a bit, um, terrible. But, if you reeeeally want to join them in their quest for gold and glory and more trading cards, I'm afraid I have a bit of…

To Make It Better: Hearthstone Beta

In an attempt to make sure that no-one else is allowed to have money ever again, Blizzard announced free to play online CCG Hearthstone back in March. Using characters and lore from the rather popular World of WarCraft, the plan was for a late summer beta with a same-year release, the first part of which has now come to fruition. Momentarily available only in North…

MMOTCG – Hearthstone: Heroes Of Warcraft In Action

You're probably thinking, "Action? Hah. The closest card games have ever gotten to action was the grisly paper cut massacre of 1912." But actually, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft keeps quite a brisk, effects-packed pace. Ice and fire sing down from on high (or at least slightly above the coffee table), and monster slabs snap, crackle, and pop en route to shattering to the winds. Turns,…
