Hearthstone: The Grand Tournament!

What is it? For all the card sharks out there (this gladiator included), The Grand Tournament, the 2nd card expansion for Blizzard’s massively popular spell slingin’ card game Hearthstone just came out this week! I know you probably already know that, but this is the first weekend where we get to have some real face time (get it?) with the game!

What’s new? The Grand Tournament features over 132 new cards and new mechanics such as the new keyword: Inspire which activates whenever you use your hero power; Joust, a mechanic where you and your opponent randomly reveal a card from your respective decks, whoever reveals the higher cost card wins the Joust and the ability triggers accordingly.

The expansion also features a significantly improved Ranked Play mode which urges players to keep playing ranked by minimizing the risk of losing ranks.

Hearthstone is available on PC, IOS and Android!

My Battle Tag is: raffyley03. Hope to see all you knights and gladiators (wink) in the Tournament!

WUT? Disney Infinity 3.0 will be coming out on August 30, 2015 for the PS4 and Xbox One. I don’t think I need to convince anyone why this game is awesome. It’s a game where you can play as Spiderman, hop on the Millenium Falcon and start blasting some Tie Fighters. Shut up and take my money!


Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain

What it iz? Its Hideo Kojima’s final Metal Gear Solid Game! MGS: The Phantom Pain finally connects the Big Boss saga to the modern Solid Snake saga and we get to see how Naked Snake embarks on an epic tale of revenge that transforms him to the ruthless Big Boss we know he will become. Its the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith for Metal Gear! No, wait. Bad comparison. Just trust us its awesome!
