What's wrong with Hearthstone?

ONly the same thing that is wrong with all CCGs; He who spends the most money wins. Obviously not a universal truth, but people spend obscene amounts of money to get all the good cards to build the best decks and random chance is the only way you can beat them. The odds are in their favor.

When Magic was released way back when, I bought the first packs in our area. (And besides the staff at the gaming store, my roomies and I had the only magic cards since they sold out) I got 2 packs for me, and one for each of my roommates. It was a blast until the local store got more cards 2 months later. My one roommate went crazy buying Magic cards. It got very hard to beat him because we hadn't bought more cards. Fast forward a few months, and we had all bought boosters and played more. My one roommate was unbeatable. He had spent obscene amounts of money, sought out rares from comic stores, and won a bunch of tournies. The rest of us realized that unless we wanted to spend more money, we could never beat people that did. So we mostly stopped playing.

At least with Hearthstone you can earn cards without spending real money. I get a couple packs a week just playing casually.

Great, can we nerf the annoying priest cards that cost next to nothing and allow them to instantly kill even the most powerful minions in the game?

Or at least make them random. I can't target specific creatures with any hunter instant kill cards.

Wow, that was very interesting. Yet another reason I can add to my list for not getting general anesthesia, ever.

Well, millions of people get general anesthesia yearly without issue. There are only a few 1000 of these people in the world, and it's not even determined that anesthesia is the cause. Of course you should get local if there's a choice, but if it's a choice between dying or general anesthesia, please choose life. We'd miss ya.

@ nin, where do you find this stuff?

Yeah, I've personally known two people who died from general anesthesia, and another who had a very bad reaction. Whatever the odds, losing two people makes you pretty gun shy. I've had two operations done under local that the first couple of surgeons told me I could do unless I was under general. I just found another surgeon who would do it my way. The one was preformed in an operating theater with seven interns observing. He numbed up the left side of my rib cage and was about to put up a barrier so I couldn't see. I was like, hey man, if I was nice enough to agree to let seven strangers watch me get cut open the least you could do would be to let me watch too.

Nonsense article is full of nonsense. Wow.

There is no pendulum. People play games on what they want to. Hell, I play games on my high end pc, Xbone, PS4, 3DS, tablet, and phone. The author acts like people stopped playing PC games when the Bone and PS4 released.

I feel the opposite is true. Since the launch of XB1 and PS4, I haven't seen a massive swing back toward consoles. It seems to me that games coverage and discussion swung toward PC at the end of the PS3 and 360 life cycle. During the heyday of the 360 and PS3 we kept hearing about the end of the PC as a gaming platform. That's largely gone away and not come back.

People have been writing articles about the end of PC gaming since it started. Every time a new console came out, PC gaming was dead. (I remember reading this in the 80s when the NES and Master system came out.) I saw the signs in pig entrails this morning, PC gaming is dead! George Bush was elected a second time, PC gaming is dead!

Anyone that writes an article about anything proclaiming it dead - unless they write the obituaries - is writing a click bait article. Metal is dead! Rock is dead! Cars are dead! Tablets are dead! Desktop PCs are dead! It's all bullshit.

Some people aren't happy unless they take sides, and then proclaim their decision to anyone who'll listen.

It's childish, really. This isn't 2nd grade recess, no mater how much some act like it.



I can see from a technical standpoint, to a degree. I mean, arguing that the Bone is more powerful than the PS4 is just deluding yourself. Arguing that the PS4 is WAY better than the Bone because SONY is also ludicrous, though, since even mid-range PC graphics cards crush them both.

I like the PS4 better. I just like Sony better. I like their exclusives better, I like the system better. But, (launch fuck ups aside) the Bone is OK too. I got one and sold it pretty quick, but then I got another one when they removed the Kinect and came out with some decent stuff. Sunset Overdrive is really fun. I'm looking forward to Fable Legends. I like using Amazon Video and Blu-rays more on the Bone because they have a damn remote. (Although you can't buy Amazon movies from there, you have to go to a PC. WTF?)

But, it's not like I ever stopped playing PC games. Still playing GW2. Still playing BF4 on and off. As much as I loved Destiny's controls on the PS4, the M+K is WAY better for shooters. The thing about PCs now is that you don't have to upgrade them nearly as often to enjoy the top end graphics. I used to plunk down cash every year for upgrades, not so much anymore.

And the argument that VR is going to change everything and put PCs on top? Did they miss that PS4 has a headset coming out, and that Microsoft is making the Hololens? Because that won't wind up on XBone as well?

(Koolaid Example 1), but the tyrants are perplexed by the replies, getting better, and better all the time, yeeha, 'Murica.

Saudi Arabia doesn't just finance the ISIS but it's "law" system is nearly identical in barbarism... but then the US with it's illegal prisons, state sponsored kidnappings and torture fits right in.

Hey, hey, hey. On the plus side, we have the largest prison population in the world! America, #1!

LOL.

Same here. I prefer the underhanded, dirty shit I do to go unnoticed, if at all possible.

Exactly. We're doing dirty, underhanded shit, but we want you to ignore that and heap praise on our game!

Selling me characters is something I might accept from a F2P game, since they need to monetize it somehow. Selling me characters in a game that has just about nothing else to show for the $60 you want me to spend on it is ludicrous. You deserve all the backlash you get for such a dimwitted move. Did you forget that people have played the game? We know it's not a $60 already. You still want to charge that AND sell us $40 worth of DLC. Derp.

PC gamers rejoice! Today the announcement you’ve been waiting for has been made; Fable Legends will be available to play on both Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One.

Who, exactly, was waiting on that? Also, if that's what we have to rejoice about with regards to Windows 10, then... yay.


Well, I wasn't exactly waiting, but Fable is one of the reasons I own an XBone.
