  • Dragon Priest variations in reply to Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #148 - Kolento Dragon Priest by Day9

    #
    I'm looking forward to seeing Sean play this - I've been playing the less-controlly version of this deck with great success vs. everything except patron and handlock. Can't seem to get Kolento's version to work properly...
  • Nick Sibicky in reply to Day[9] and Go by anewbie

    #
    Has anyone else checked out the Nick Sibicky tutorials since Sean mentioned them? They're great (but kind of long)! It's a good mix of general strategy tips and specific situational advice. What a cool game...
  • Cairne or BK in reply to golden tinkmaster by galan

    #
    If you don't have Black Knight, he's pretty useful. Cairne is a solid choice too. Leeroy or Thalnos are good if you really like aggro or control.
  • Machinarium in reply to What I love about adventure games by SteppeLively

    #
    Have you played Machinarium? I was thinking it was a good example of non-violence in video games. You play a little dude who can't really fight, and the antagonists are basically brutes. But then, you end up dealing with them ...
  • Game lessons and life lessons in reply to What is King Questing teaching the player? by thrawn1324

    This isn't a short answer, but I didn't want to start new thread about the same thing. Here's are some things that the designers reward in a player:
  • The Death of Adventure Games

    #
    In the most recent episode of Mostly Walking, Sean Bouchard mentioned this article on the death of adventure games. Happy reading! http://www.oldmanmurray.com/features/77.html

  • Mostly Walking KQVI: Where else have I heard that voice?

    #
    Prince Alexander: Robby Benson. You’ll know him as the voice of Disney’s Beast, but he’s also popped up in Seinfeld and The Magic Schoolbus
  • Hearthstone movies starring Day[9]

    I'll start.
  • heros in reply to Now that I've actually played the beta, here are my choices: by Kai.Herbertz

    #
    I can't get results with the mage, but I think it's mostly due to my lack of essential cards. I might have better luck in arena. I'm warming up to the warlock, priest, and paladin. I've now had my ass ...
  • Hearthstone: ˈa-zhər

    #
    Why does every commentator and caster in the community pronouce "azure drake" wrong? Dictionaries exist! It's the colossus/colossi of Hearthstone.
  • Can you RUN it in reply to Picking a laptop out and need opinions and such by Krylo

    #
    Here is a website that will check the specs for a particular game, and here is a website with a (rather unscientific) study of laptop reliability. Asus ranks highly.
  • I Hearth U

    #
    Since Hearthstone is pretty new, resources have been slim for in-depth analysis. If you're a studious gamer, you'll appreciate this site, IHearthU (beta). You can find a lot of good CCG theory, as well as specific deck ideas and analysis, ...
  • Thanks! in reply to Sorry I didn't reply sooner~ the day[job] has consumed me @_@ by XuShu

    #
    Thanks for the Priest tips. I'd definitely like to see a deck, but it might be better to make a Hearthstone deck thread here...

    I only had PowerPoint to work with, so I ended up with some extraneous white lines. The filter was the easiest way to get rid of them.
  • White and gold in reply to Well... by XuShu

    #
    I know where you're coming from with the white and gold FTW, but I absolutely can't get Priest to do anything for me. I had to play six games in unranked to get my two wins for the daily mission. ...

  • Favorite and least favorite Hearthstone heroes

    #
    Greetings, DayKnights! If you're playing the Hearthstone beta, I want to know which characters you like to play, and which ones you don't, and why. Do you love board clearing with the Mage or Druid? Do you prefer annoying your ...

  • suggestions in reply to Day[9] Day Off Suggestions for October 4th by Bergtau

    1) Borderlands 2. It's long-ish, but clever, funny, and challenging. Probably a two-parter. 2) FEZ. You won't finish it completely, but you'll at least accomplish the minimum to beat it. I think you'll love the mechanics.
