Hearthstone: This kiddie pool sure has a lot of leaks

More observations as I roll my face across the iPad ‘playing’ Hearthstone: Just like MtG (or basically most card games of this type), Hearthstone is a major Pay-4-Power game. Epic and Legendary cards are silly strong, and as soon as … Continue reading
