The RPG Scrollbars: A Round Of Gwent

These days it seems like you're not a true RPG unless you've got a card-game spin-off. Hearthstone. The Elder Scrolls Legends. Dark Souls Strip Poker. (Coming soon! And the rules are painfully simple. First, strip. Then comes the poker! Repeat! Again!)The reason is of course entirely down to the opportunity to expand the world and find a new take on the characters, and nothing whatsoever…

The RPG Scrollbars: Nine Years In Karazhan

Can a tower be a star? If you've been paying any attention to Blizzard's wacky worlds recently, you'll have spotted that it's giving it a pretty good shot. Karazhan, home of Medivh, the Last Guardian of Tirisfal, whose corruption by the Burning Legion led to the orc invasions of Azeroth. A central location in the movie, as well as the mythos. A whole Hearthstone expansion…

Impressions: The Elder Scrolls – Legends

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the team behind The Elder Scrolls: Legends [official site] must be great fans of Hearthstone. Much of this new collectible card game will be instantly familiar to those who've played Blizzard's Warcraft-based equivalent. There's a gradually increasing pool of magic points with which to play cards. The same attack value and health stats, with most creatures being…

The RPG Scrollbars: In The Cards

These days, you're just not a proper RPG unless you've got a fancy card-game spin-off either in or out of world. Gwent. Hearthstone. Arcomage. Triple Triad. Legends of Norrath. Pokemon CCG. Now The Elder Scrolls is throwing its adventurer's cap into the ring with The Elder Scrolls: Legends, as announced aeons ago, but only just going into closed beta. Quite a gold-rush, especially given that…

The RPG Scrollbars: Roles We Take, Roles We Choose

Not for the first time, I've spent quite a while recently pondering the nature of roles - more specifically, mechanical role versus narrative role. When we think of RPGs, what we're usually thinking of is the latter. You play the role of the Hero, but in a universe that's typically designed to let you define that however you like. I'm not saying that's a bad…

The greatest CCG Of 2014: Hearthstone

2014 saw the release of three or four interesting and excellent card games, but it was Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft that most captured our attention and drew us back for match after match. Alec: I've shied away from multiplayer in the last couple of years. Partly it's self-consciousness, and partly because the constant background sound of bloodcurdling screaming* whenever my microphone was turned on didn't…

Riot Changes Mind On Pro LoL Streams, But Issues Persist

The witch is dead, League of Legends pros can once again stream whatever they want, and eSports is saved! OK, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit, but I really didn't like the potential implications of Riot's decision to contractually forbid its pros from streaming Dota 2, Hearthstone, World of Tanks, and tens of other extremely popular games. Fortunately, after copious uproarious outcry, Riot decided to…

Feature: LoL eSports vs The World

Why Riot Really Needs To Rethink Pro Stream Restrictions

When I wrote my Homeric epic about attending League of Legends' Championship Series, one of my biggest fears was that Riot's stranglehold on its own game's eSports scene could eventually suffocate pros and the scene itself. A game creator, after all, will inevitably have different priorities than a dyed-in-the-wool sports organization - especially compared to the way eSports leagues currently operate. And yet, here we…

Gold, Gambling, And Getting The Most Out Of Hearthstone

“Ho ho ho, it's good ta see ya again,” says Hearthstone as I load it up for the hundredth time. “Save it you Scottish dwarf,” I think, “And SHOW ME THE MONEY.” Call me a Venture Co. Mercenary, but after a month or so immersed in the collectible card game's beta I've eyes for Gold and Gold alone. Blizzard's in-game currency is a fickle mistress,…
