Not All Randoms Are Created Equal

I really need to be more vocal about my complaints and compliments when it comes to games. The above Kripparrian video demonstrates the inability to play around an opposing mage when half their hand is composed of randomly-generated cards. (Like a number of my more recent Hearthstone-related posts) I agree with Kripp, but I'd like to address an underlying issue that makes the problem even worse.

WildStar - Week 3 - MMOMG

Instead of a recap this week, I felt it was worth addressing WildStar's reputation and the unreasonable amount of hate and negativity surrounding it. I'm sure this video isn't going to sit well with some people, but so be it.

Mind-Blowing Massive Build On An Anarchy Server!

Not sure how I missed this, but holy crap! These amazing buildings were supposedly constructed by hand in survival on what I've heard is the oldest anarchy server ( You can imagine nothing lasts long on those, but the city's location remained secret for some time. There was a well-known item dupe trick being used to gather the materials, but all the blocks were placed legitimately. That alone is a massive undertaking on any server, let alone one where it could all be gone in moments.

Eschalon: Book I - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!

Eschalon: Book I is an open-world, turn-based isometric RPG released in 2007. If it looks older, that's because it was purposely crafted in the classic style of the games it pays homage to. So, how does it stack up against these memorable titles?

Valeera's Got a Brand New Bag! Tavern Brawl - RNGBS

This brawl was so RNG-oriented I decided to skip arena this week. Free From Amber returns for more crazy results!

WildStar - Week 2 - MMOMG

Two weeks in, and I can't wait to play again (tonight)! My first venture into the Ruins of Kel Voreth was amazing and left a great impression! Looking online at what creative players have done with their plots is also very inspiring!

Fallout Shelter - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!

Fallout Shelter is a building and management simulator in the popular Fallout universe. It's a mobile game that's been ported to PC and recently made it to Steam. If you're like me, you probably just clicked away right now and I honestly don't blame you. Everything I really needed to say about this game is in the video anyway.

The Salt Mines of Un'Goro - Arena - RNGBS

Arena on day one of Journey to Un'Goro was... interesting. We learned a few things - Free From Amber is often amazing and Bittertide Hydra is essentially the opposite.

WildStar - Week 1 - MMOMG

Of the titles I've played for this series so far, I believe WildStar has given me my best first week since Project Gorgon. Progression feels well-paced and the world is still fresh and interesting for me. Here's to hoping it can maintain most of that for the rest of the month - I'm looking forward to playing this week!

The Problems With Quests

I'm happy to see Kripp speaking out on behalf of the free (and low investment) players lamenting the importance placed on legendary and epic cards with the release of Journey To Un'Goro. I agree that even the Hall of Fame bonus dust is unlikely to be enough for the majority of players, and perhaps doling out a random quest to everyone that logged in might've helped alleviate the problem somewhat.

However, I feel there's another issue concerning quest cards that's not getting nearly enough attention due to the above complaints, and it's perhaps part of that problem as well as an overall design issue.
