I tried out Hearthstone for the first time today and I have to say it’s been enjoyable so far. Hearthstone is a trading card battle game similar to Magic, but Warcraft themed. It’s easier to understand and get into when compared to the Magic games I’ve played (2013 and 2014) and I’m looking forward to getting further into it. Hearthstone will be released sometime next year and will be free to play across various platforms.
As I think of something more relevant to write about, I figured I’d follow up on some previous posts. Since beating Diablo III on Normal I haven’t played it once. Well I continued on and played the first few quests of Act I on the next difficulty, but it was so repetitive and boring I gave it up. I never found cool gear, never had the gold to guy gear in the auction house, never had the desire to ‘grind’ for gold and gear (that’s not playing a game in my eyes) and certainly will never spend real money on in game items, so yeah. Diablo III was a pretty big waste of money for me.
Also I sold the Wii I bought from eBay on eBay for $80 (included 2 games and a new controller, so in the end I lost a good $50…). Never really used the Wii after the first week and wanted some extra money for gas, so that’s that.
In other news the next game I buy will be Madden 13 which will hold me over until Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 come around. Those will likely be the only games I buy for the rest of the year. Exciting, I know.
