Brave New Worlds

    So yesterday, Blizzard announced thier new game at PAX East. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a collectable card game played online. All of thier promo videoes do include the fact they played Magic:The Gathering. So this is a stab and competing with Magic:The Gathering Online. They have announced that they are going to offer it for free and that extra card packs are purchased for a dollar. All in all it's a great plan I think. And the game, so far, looks very fun. The grafics are very flashy and colorful. And the cards draw heavily upon Warcaft spells and creatures. Once this game comes out, I will be giving it a try just for the sheer novelty of it.
    Earlier in the week I reported that Star Trek Online was coming out with a new expansion. This expansion will make the Romulans a playable faction. It also will be changing up Klingons so that you can play them from level 1. Other changes will be implemented, like that your first character doesn't have to a Fed. New rep to garner to fight the Tholians with. Empress Sela returns being voiced by the original actress. A new Enemy will be added and upgrades to the interface, including customizables options. They also look like the talents and skills will get a revamp and upgrade. And a new level of specialization for the skills will be added. I can't wait to see what that may be. Currently the skill system is very confusing and not obvious in what it can do for you.
    Tune in tomorrow to find out what I will talk about next.
