Hearthstone Celebrates 70 Million Players!

Blizzard has announced earlier today in Hearthstone official website that the tavern has now welcomed over 70 Million players! Players can also log in the game receive free card packs to celebrate this momentous occasion. Hearthstone is an amazing TCG that debuted on the iPad and has not looked back ever since. I plan on getting back into the game as I miss it so much! My son just picked it up and he is loving the game so it’s high time I got back into it.

If you have never played Hearthstone, now is as good as any time to jump in! Congrats to Blizzard. 70 Million is a lot!!!

Is Hearthstone Headed to Nintendo Switch?

Blizzard has announced that they would be open to bringing their popular, online trading card game to Nintendo Switch. Hearthstone senior game designers Mike Donais and Matt Place said that since the game is on tablets and phones a Nintendo Switch version of the card title would work well. Here is what they had to say:

“Hearthstone is available on iPads and phones, so it’s a good discussion worth having.”

IF you have never played the game, it’s outstanding! This would be HUGE news for Nintendo Switch if the title does become available. More as it develops.

The game, which is a favorite by yours truly, just headed to the iPhone and has converted over quite well. With numerous expansions and collectible cards, we don’t see this one slowing down anytime soon. Congrats to Blizzard and please keep up the great work!

Hearthstone, the outstanding digital card game from Blizzard, has just announced that the game has reached 20 million players. Blizzard has to be excited with this gigantic number of Hearthstone players so here’s to 20 million more.

We here at MVGN absolutely LOVE the title and think that it deserves all the attention it has received. The game is deceptively simple and perfectly balanced and is on of the best games to ever hit the market.

Congrats Blizzard.

MVGN’s Top 5 Titles We Are Looking Forward to For 2014

ps4controller-5
2014 has just begun and already the games that will be delivered this year will be nothing short of amazing. From Mario Kart to inFamous, 2014 is already shaping up to be a year to remember in terms of gaming entertainment. With all the excitement surrounding the new year, we have compiled a list of games that we are most excited about for this upcoming year (it was pretty hard to narrow it down to just 5)….

So without further ado, here are the top 5 games for 2014 that we can’t wait to play:

X (Monolith’s Wii U title)

MonolithSoft_X_WiiU_NinendoDirect

Not much is known about Monolith’s new Wii U project but that hasn’t stopped me from desperately wanting this promising title. Since it was shown during last year’s Nintendo Direct, I have been itching to hear more and more about this game and it appears as though I am not alone. A number of forums that I frequent can’t wait to see more and Monolith/Nintendo may have a huge hit on their hands once this one is delivered. Although no time frame has been given for its inevitable release, I am expecting to see this one later this year.

 

Super Smash Bros Wii U

Super Smash Bros. always seems to be a no brainer in terms of games to look forward to. With its stellar lineup of classic Nintendo franchises and frantic gameplay, Super Smash Bros Wii U is looking better and better by the day.   The game is set to launch later this year and the cast of characters is already shaping up to be amazing.  I hope that Nintendo decides to support this one with DLC and places a huge emphasis with online play.  Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS is going to be something to remember for year’s to come.

Uncharted (PS4)

This will be the game that will make me purchase a PS4 in the very near future. I am a HUGE fan of the series and cannot imagine what will come of this game when it’s on the impressive PS4. What Naughty Dog has done with the PS3 is nothing short of outstanding so I cannot even fathom what they have in store for the PS4. I really think that the new Uncharted game is going to set the bar for next gen games and will continue this amazing franchise for year’s to come.

Hearthstone

12

Hello. My name is Gary and I am addicted to HearthStone. While the game is still in beta, I simply LOVE everything about this TCG and I already know I will be sinking most of my 2014 into this game. I love collecting new cards and tweaking out my decks in the beta already and cannot wait to see what this looks and plays like on my iPad. If you are even remotely interested in this game but haven’t gotten to play it in its beta form, I assure you, this one is going to be special.

TitanFall

Titanfall_E3_014

This is going to be a big one. Every time I see something new on TitanFall, my heart skips a beat. What’s cooler than giant robots, an amazing FPS and competitive online play? Nothing. TitanFall has all the markings to be something spectacular and I pray that the team delivers come March. This game is going to be a giant feather in Microsoft’s cap and is being headed up by some impressive developers. TitanFall is going to be HUGE when it’s released and I will be there to play it in all its glory.

 

There are a number of other titles that almost made our list but if we had to pick just 5, there they are. As always, thanks for reading.

What are your top 5?
