That it is, but some wording in a document somewhere alluded to the start of the next season also being the start of the season for the iPad.   Who knows, we can only hope

My laptop was fixed for $50, and the guy that fixed it proceeded to preach about why I shouldn't buy another hp, which I'd already decided...


I'm thinking the rumors about an April 1 launch for the ipad version may be pretty accurate.

Reasons...   The launch from open beta to live on the PC was pretty freaking soft, and I think it makes a lot of sense to wait until the ipad version is ready to really have the media push.  Secondly, the talk of when the next season starts is 4/1, with discussion of the ipad  version.  

Finally, Blizzard /Activision are not idiots, and the install base in ios is so huge they would be idiots to not launch quickly if it's ready.  

Just my 0.02

Which means that my $400 machine runs a game that looks better than your $700-$1500 machine.

Which isn't to put down sleeping dogs, but there's also a lot of subtle differences as well.

The incidental objects in the next gen games are more varied and common. There's more building styles and textures for them. Infamous also has a bigger vertical aspect.

There's less real-time reflections going on the past gen game as well.

In the end, if you're making an open world game set in a city, eventually you're going to get a lot of parallels since there's only so many extra effects you can throw in.

Keep in mind that Sleeping Dogs came out almost two years ago. I'm not that impressed with Second Son's graphics from a raw technical perspective, which is fine because I don't go to consoles (PS4 and XBO included) for high-end graphics, but I am hoping for advances in other areas such as animation, AI, gameplay, etc. If all it ends up being is a better looking version of the previous games, I don't think it deserves being labeled a definitive next-gen experience. We should hold our standards higher than that.

What game would you say is your current standard bearer for next gen then?

Infamous Fourth Son 7, due out in 2025 exclusive to PS4 with the attached holodrive peripheral.

Haha, +1

FWIW this game looks more "next gen" than anything I've seen thus far, with NBA 2k4 being a close second.

Off topic and on topic post...

Yes macs are awesome for minimal gaming and all else for me. I'm about to download this and check it out . I'm new to card games. Looks interesting .

You are in for a treat.  I'm new to card games too, and this one is a perfect place to start.  Be sure to play the tutorial all the way through before playing a real opponent.

My wife and I both agree that when we replace this 1 year old hp pos, it will be with a Mac.  The shop will fix it for $50, so I'll do that first.  I had to return it to hp about 5 months ago due to overheating.  Now of course the warranty is out.

I'm not sure Lee.  I've only run out of cards in one game. 

I made it to rank 17 finally, and seem to be winning much more.  I have a really tough Pally deck now. 

Bad news though, my hp laptop is overheating so I have to take it to the shop tomorrow.

I personally will never by another HP, and probably won't even buy another PC.  I'm over it. 

Wish the ipad version would hurry up and come out.

I agree about Gelbin.  I've had it go my way and it's a cool card to play, but the random factor is too much for me and I can easily find a worthy substitute. 

Really big patch today as Lee said, and indications are that Hearthstone should go live (non-beta) within a week.  Not that this will change all that much, though, when the iPad version is finally released all bets are off.

Nat Pagle was nerfed a bit in this patch and he is one of my favorite cards.  The end result of the nerf is really just one less turn with an opportunity for a draw.  That doesn't seem that drastic, so I think I'm going to keep him (if you DE him you get 1,600 dust which is a crap load).  I normally only play Nat when I have taunt up to protect him a bit, though I realize many play him on turn 2, and that is one of the main reason's for the nerf.   The other Legendary that was adjusted I haven't actually unlocked yet (Tinkmaster), and the big change with him is that his effect now affects a random minion (so it can impact your own board). 

Anyway, I'm still loving the hell out of this game and the depth of the strategies that can work are staggering.  It has opened my mind to Card games like this, but after trying Magic and some others on the iPad i still find myself wishing I was playing this instead.  Blizzard has another sure-fire winner on their hands, and the competitive competition side to this has already taken off.  I never thought I'd have any interest in spectating a game (when I could be playing one instead).  However, I've found myself watching some tournaments with the best Hearthstone players in it (Trump etc.) and really learned a lot and found it to be super entertaining. 

If you have not tried out this game and like strategy games, or of course CCG's, you better damn well try this game...  Fun can be had without spending a dime.

While some legendaries are amazing I would say the majority are very situational and in most cases, you would be better off with more standard “good” and reliable cards.

I haven't decided if I agree or disagree with this, so I at least agree that it's partially accurate smile

I know I've had games decided because of Legendaries  played against me.  I also know I've one many due to playing them (maybe the one's you feel are amazing).

http://ihearthu.com/

I've made it to 18 so far without spending any money and that is one of the reasons I am really liking this game.  To put this into perspective, those of you that were my friends on Live likely noticed after my MW2 stint, I pretty much played only Fifa.  My gaming time is normally only in Friday and Saturday from 10 till whenever, and last weekend I played 1 game of fifa then started playing this...   Even my wife commented on it.


Anyway, the links I started the post with are links I've found to be helpful and entertaining. 

The reddit link is useful in many ways, with the best example being a thread where a really good player (Trump) made it to Legendary with a Mage deck, without spending any money.

The iTunes link is for the podcast "the angry chicken" which I've listened to twice now and I found it to be entertaining first and the strategies discussed really have helped me to I prove. 

Lastly, ihearthu is probably widely know by anyone playing this game, if it isn't it should be.  They also have a podcast which I've subscribed to but not listened to.

Dead Nation looks really fun.  I'm really digging PS+ so far, though Outlast was a bit too creepy for me, the polish was there and it's hard to believe it was given away for free.

I still find the social aspects of psn to be inferior to what I became accustomed to on the 360.  The process for finding the username of the person you're playing and sending them an invitation or a message takes way too long and is the very definition of cumbersome.  I get around it by keeping my iPad or iPhone handy and using it for these things, but still...  Hopefully they will tweak the process.

Personally I can't wait for Infamous 3.  I've not played any of the others, but what I've seen so far looks fantastic.  It kind of reminds me of Prototype, but hopefully a lot deeper.  That's probably a bad comparison though.
141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: February 24, 2014, 08:46:29 PM
Awesome Lee!

I've only played the arena once and won 3 games only .  I definitely didn't know what I was doing then.

Since then I've made it to 18 so far In Ranked matches.  Every so often I absolutely stomped though, which keeps it fun.

Also, I am aware that Blizzard has announced cross-platform play, which is awesome.  I'm curious though, will my unlocks/decks be tied to my battle.net account and automatically be available on the iPad version?  Hopefully they will... 

I think it's pretty much guaranteed that both versions will connect to the same card collections.  Don't hold your breath for the iPad version, though, it sounds like it's a long ways off from being ready.

Sounds good!
I love the strategy/ logic in this game...

Hate it's a long way away though.  I'm not a developer but it doesn't seem like a daunting task to port it to iPad.

Try Ascension.  I have surely put in at least 100 hours into it, if not more.  It's not really a CCG, it's a "deck-building game", but it gets at some of the same gameplay elements.  Instead of building up a permanent, persistent deck, you start each match with a standard set of basic cards and you build your deck as the match progresses.
It looks really good, is there a big "pay wall"?  I don't find that HS has much of a paywall, yet anyway, and love the fact that you can get new decks simply by winning.  Do you still play Ascension?

I'm playing Hearthstone on the pc and loving the heck out of it.  It's my first CCG ever and I never thought I would like it as much as I do.  I will be grabbing the iPad version the moment it's available, but until then I'm wondering what CCG's on the iPad I should look at to tide me over.  I'm aware of the ones that are out there, many of which have good reviews.  I'm curious which would be the best for someone just starting that is decently comfortable with Hearthstone.  Thoughts?  Should I just play Magic?

The PS4 version will probably follow pretty soon. "Stay tuned" is the latest message from the devs. There's already an announced PS4 version of the game, but only for physical copies AFAIK. I'm kind of surprised Microsoft had a quicker turnover than Sony about this considering both companies' recent history of indie treatment. Good for Microsoft and Xbox One owners.


good to hear this.  I want a copy on PS4 but really wish they lower the entry point to get it and going with a digital copy would seal the deal.
