Blizzard's card game, Hearthstone, is now live and available on Battle.net. There are various game modes and a pretty good tutorial to help new players. Prior to each battle the player gets to use a hero from a particular class and they are: Mage (Jaina Proudmoore), Priest (Anduin Wrynn), Warlock (Gul'dan), Paladin (Uther the Lightbringer), Warrior (Garrosh Hellscream), Druid (Malfurion Stormrage), Hunter (Rexxar), Rogue (Valeera Sanguinar), and Shaman (Thrall). Gameplay is turned-based and each player can make as many as possible during each turn. Usually turns are ended due to lack of cards and/or mana. Once a match is finish each player's hero is granted experience, winning gets you more. Once a player reaches level 10 a new level of cards will be available. Hearthstone is available on Microsoft Windows and OS X operating systems, with iPad, iPhone and Android platform releases planned.


Having trouble with Titanfall?


Are you one of the players that highly anticipated the release of Titanfall? Are you plagued with server errors, disconnects and even being kicked from the lobby. Well EA has announced some known issues along with the fixes. The full article page can be found here: http://help.ea.com/uk/article/titanfall-known-issues-and-troubleshooting-information/.

Connection errors and infinite loop when trying to connect on slower internet connections
Exceedingly slow internet connections may cause an error message when trying to join a server or play your game. Some players may even get stuck in an infinite loop when trying to connect.  
Try resetting your router or modem by unplugging it from its power source for at least fifteen seconds and then plugging it back in the game.

Crashing when accepting an invitation to a match in progress while currently in a match
If you’re in the middle of a match and accept a friend’s invitation to join their match also currently in progress, your game will crash when accepting your friend’s invitation.

To solve this issue, make sure before you either inviting a friend or accepting an invitation to exit to the game lobby first.

Players randomly assigned to the IMC or Militia when starting Campaign
When starting the Titanfall Campaign, you’ll be randomly aside to one of the two-opposing forces of Titanfall, either the IMC or the Militia.

While this is by design and intentional, to complete the Campaign you must complete all the missions of the Campaign on your assigned side.

You can always join the party of a friend assigned to the opposite side to get a taste of each perspective, however personal Campaign progression is limited to your completing all missions on your game-assigned side.

Some Intel processors must install specific beta graphics drivers
PC players with specific Intel processors, specifically those with Intel Graphics, must download and install a special beta graphics driver to ensure their game runs properly

You can find this driver, along with a full list of what Intel processors the driver is compatible with, straight from Intel.

Hard-drive related installation issues
Some players are reporting installation issues with Titanfall when using a hard drive formatted FAT32. Due to file-size restrictions inherent to FAT32 systems, some of the larger files within the Titanfall installation are unable to be managed by these hard drives.To successfully install Titanfall, make sure your hard drive is formatted NTFS. You can find instructions on how to convert a hard drive partition to NTFS straight from Microsoft.

Check out the all new Story Trailer and get a deeper look into what drives Aiden Pearce. Remember, there are some things you can't walk away from.

Ubisoft has released a new video giving us more of a back story on Aiden Pearce  and whats going on in the Watch Dog game.  It's highly anticipated release date was pushed back and was then slated for late 2014.  The new release date of May 27th is a surprise and the added story trailer below is looking good.  If your up for some more Watch Dog action, check out the 14 min gameplay video as well.  Should be a great game to look out for, and here's hoping that the graphics and game got some substantial improvement with the delay.

Dragon Age: Inquisition


Explore a vast, fantasy world at the brink of catastrophe in Dragon Age: Inquisition, a next-generation action RPG, where your choices shape and drive the experience. In this upcoming video game from BioWare, makers of Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age: Origins, you’ll make your mark in an expansive, story-driven open world filled with complex characters, challenging combat and difficult decisions.

A cataclysmic event has plunged the land of Thedas into turmoil. Dragons now darken the sky, casting a shadow of terror over a once-peaceful kingdom. Mages have broken into an all-out war against the oppressive Templars. Nations rise against one another. It falls to you to restore order as you lead the Inquisition and hunt down the agents of chaos - your choices will forever change the Dragon Age.

This new offering from BioWare will prove to be the best one yet.  A next-gen RPG running off the Frostbite 3 engine, will bring to life the surrounding and the world of Dragon Age: Inquisition.  Character creation has been improved and you will have an endless range of options to customize your character and chose its path in game.  You moral decisions will affect how the game and story plays out and will have repercussions in the end.  

The art and sneak peeks at the game have definitely added to this game being on my top 10 most anticipated games.  The fact alone that I remember logging over 90 hours in Dragon Age: Origins, just adds to the anticipation and the countless hours that will be put into this game.  Check out the videos to learn more about the game which is slated to be released Q3 2014.
