Burning Questions about Hearthstone Manners

That title sounds like a personal problem. The questions are burning, are they? Maybe its time to get over the embarrassment and have a doctor look at that. I kill me. Oh by the way, this could get a little pompous. Its one of those days.

So as usual I’ve been playing a lot of Hearthstone, more than ever since they released it for Android. I now have something to do on my lunch break besides read the dozens of books on my “To Read” list! Is that a good thing? Maybe not. But that is neither here nor there.

Zeratul: The Nibnard Edition

For the record, I cannot play Zeratul very well. I understand the basic principle of going after the weak ones and finishing them off from the shadows. But as my kill/death ratio with Zeratul can attest, understanding and execution are two completely different things. I always seem to find myself flailing into the middle of team battles completely without realizing what I’m doing. But like when I first picked up Starcraft, I am determined to be good at this character. I will throw myself at Zeratul until one of us breaks. Or there are babies.

Heroes of the Storm: All the Love for Brightwing

After playing Heroes of the Storm for a while I think everyone has the experience of finding one (or more) heroes that just completely click with their playstyle. I was lucky to find mine pretty early, the sparkly and elusive Brightwing. I wanted to play her from the first I heard about the game, honestly. Why? She’s cute, and turns people into squirrels. If squirrels aren't a valid reason to play a hero, I really don’t know what is. Brightwing isn’t the only hero I wanted to play from the look alone - I dabble in E.T.C.

Blizzcon 2014 Summary

It is (has been?) official - I've joined the cult of Blizzard. Much as I like to think I was already a full-fledged member, I had never participated in the craziness known as Blizzcon either in person or virtually. This year, however I got my first virtual ticket and literally spent two days glued to my computer screen squeeing like a teenager at a Bieber concert. And because of the generosity of a lovely friend of mine I’m now playing Diablo III, which means every single Blizzard game aside from WoW has sucked me into its blissful maw.
