  • Quote from Bootlace: “So to put another nail in the MTGO coffin, MTGA is embraced as the new digital esports platform. MTGO market prices keep declining to new lows and is as expected getting phased out. Will Wizards keep the servers on Hex style or offer redeem options in MTGA? Tune in next year to find out. Hearthstone's new expansion seems fun until you run into a Rexxar Hunter for the 10th straight game. Smash Bros Ultimate adventure mode giving me Hex Adventure Zone vibes. You got the ovewo…

    Quote from Treasure: “I hated when they had more rng style sets in hex and i almost stopped playing then. I won't start artefact because it's all about rng and the worst design choice ever. They game looks great and might recover itself in future sets but right now better to play coin flips to decide who wins. And even that richard garfield designed and he is very good at making card games he still is wrong with it this time and the to much rng. youtube.com/watch?v=DV-YlwC0sPw this review sums i…

  • To be fair, Siege is shit everywhere.

  • More like beyond pointless, amirite?!

  • Fixed sets are very good, but this doesn't look like my kind of game. Good luck with the KS.

  • Quote from Obsidian: “I hope you guys enjoy KF. I think a lot of people are going to be disillusioned with it pretty fast. We had a decent turn out for our first event at our small store, but pretty much everyone lost to the guy who went online and bought his deck for $60, and most said it was no contest. People are going to realize pretty quickly that, with power discrepancies, it just means you're shopping online for a powerful deck instead of powerful cards. And once you win enough with one d…

  • Quote from Merlin: “Quote from Ertzi: “I'm kinda hyped about Keyforge as well. Can't find it anywhere though (sold out), so I haven't played it myself yet. The concept it super cool, and based on some videos the gameplay seems decent too. ” It is decent and suprisingly clever. A bit of a rollercoaster while you learn decks, but still feels good. ” But the cool thing is you actually have to learn every deck individually. I can see some decks becoming very precious, if the combination of cards is …

    FIGHT: Rob Roy versus Archibald Cunningham MOVIE: Rob Roy (1995), director Michael Caton-Jones *SPOILERS* This movie is almost never mentioned, but it's one of the better medieval films out there. Starring young Liam Neeson to boot! This fight is more realistic, with fatigue playing a big part. Rob Roy is bigger and stronger, but uses a significantly heavier weapon against a much more skilled opponent. Tim Roth plays that slimy bastard perfectly throughout the flick. I love that his character do…

    Wow! I completely forgot about this thread for a while, because I got sick again. I don't understand. I was never sick for years, and now two ailments in quick succession. Oh well. Quote from Goliathus: “@Ertzi Out of curiosity do you consider Into The Badlands' style Asian? Or something else? ” Badlands definitely has strong Asian martial arts cinema tendencies (wire-fu, wuxia), but they keep it low enough so that it is only an additional spice. I would still prefer more grounded fight scenes, …

  • I just watched Frank Lepore play Artifact for a while. The game seems terrible. Hard pass.

  • There are still 8 players playing the game? Wow.

  • Quote from Ossuary: “It's an oversimplification, sure, but it gets the point across. And yeah, I agree with you, the real problem is the dudebros don't care and they keep buying these fucking awful cashgrab not-quite-games every single year. Good luck getting through to them, though. ” I learned this embarrassingly late. I sometimes go through my old games (we are talking PS2 era CD-ROM and console games, still factory sealed, because must have thing even if no time when you're young and stupid)…

    Quote from ThomThom: “Hex should close and rename itself Shex with pornstars based cards(...) ” I would still only play that if the gameplay mechanics were good. Art assets would be pretty important though, so not gonna happen, Rick. youtube.com/watch?v=6jEsshy26N4

  • Quote from Vroengard: “@Ertzi since I was very little, I wanted a pet deer. What I'm trying to say is, some things are just unfeasible. I'd also play that which you describe, but I don't think it can happen. ” That's fair.

  • I am wary of subscription-based games as well, simply because I don't always have lots of time to play. I think I would feel pressured to play as much as possible and I don't like that feeling. The game would pretty much have to be so amazing that I would know that I wouldn't need any other games. Collecting and progressing my collection is almost essential for me as well. I find it boring if I have all the cards from the beginning, as I would quickly find the best deck and always just use that.…

  • Quote from Vroengard: “In my opinion, only having an one-off purchase IN A LIVING GAME (i.e. one that needs constant maintenance, full support, moderators and is constantly putting out new stuff multiple times per year) cannot cover the expenses. Imagine Hex being a 60$ game to purchase and 0$ for the next 4 months, until the next set. Then, unless the next set is MANDATORY to buy at, I dunno, 50$, how can they keep going? How can you fund the next set and people's wages? The upfront payment typ…

    You are too late. This game is already to all intents and purposes dead. Not actually dead, but virtually dead. Dead in all but name. I admire your enthusiasm though. Mine has died a long time ago, along with PvE.

  • Yes, buy to play of course. Full price for the core game, which would have plenty of content already. Developers need to start thinking out of the box. There has to be other ways to monetize than microtransactions. It is telling that even suggesting not having them results in a "what, how do you get money then?" kind of response. This is exactly what I meant when I wrote that times have changed. I belong to a different time when it comes to gaming. I will probably never get the game I wish for.

  • I want a digital card game that: - Has no pvp - Has no lanes of any kind - Is not F2P - Is not roguelike - Has priority passing so you can answer opponent's stuff + it makes games more complex and interesting - Is very replayable because of deckbuilding - Has some kind of map where you can freely travel - Has battles that are not based on puzzles, but on actual games (AI can have OP cards, but no unfair rule-breaking advantages at the start of a match) - Has progression of some kind - Sells noth…
