this blobber looks sick but it's real time



this crpg looks like the most faithful 3.5e adaptation but of course it's never coming out

this also slipped past my radar but it came out on early access and looks like a hella cool fft/tactics ogre but with hd pc graphics and some quirkier systems

I had forgotten about that, but I spent at least a few minutes trying before reviewing the game controls in settings

Project Warlock is fun, it feels like Catacombs Abyss for the 2010's as through the lens of the nostalgic memory of Catacombs Abyss of the 1990's with a graphics style more reminiscent of Amiga than MS-DOS

throwback done fun I guess?

this post is me back on brand and entirely about card games.

most people abandoned gwent after the winter update which felt like the nail in the coffin in which the team had no idea what they were doing. there's a huge overhaul coming called homecoming which coincides with the release of thronebreaker (the singleplayer witcher 3/gwent side-adventure game)
Summary of what has been announced
Homecoming is a big update. CDPR started to work on this update right after the mid-winter fiasco. The plan is to bring back Gwent to its roots. The update should be released October 23rd.

The design will completely change and will be a bit darker (more like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt). We will see boards from a new perspective and they will be more like battlefields and less gaming boards. We will see more animations (VFX) especially when powerful units appear on the board. Avatars and borders will be different in a way, you won't see them during the match but we will keep currently unlocked avatars/borders. Expect modifications almost everywhere in the UI. Concerning music, we can expect new soundtracks but they don't plan to use more of old Witcher soundtracks.

The game play will also change a lot and most cards are going to change. Instead of three rows, you will only get two rows. Many cards will get a new "Preferred Row" or will be "Row locked". Other cards will also get two abilities and only one will trigger depending on the row you place your unit on. Placement will be more important and strategic. Some cards will also get abilities you'll be able to trigger at will during your turn. For example, you will be able to flip ambush cards whenever you want during your turn (but some effects may not trigger). Most cards will change and get different abilities (this is the case for Ciri: Nova, Shupe, Ilmerith: Sabbath, all CA spies...). You will be able to decide when you want to pass the turn to the opponent: this means you can activate some abilities before or after playing a card if you want. In order to prevent drypassing, they're also adding a new limit: you will not be able to have more than 10 cards in hand. Tutors will be limited as well as carryover. They want to have a maximum of unique abilities. Effects like weather or boons will be modified. Gold weather still apply weather but will also get another effect. The row limit (9 cards per row) is still here but, token units may stack or we may be able to destroy a card to play one. Leaders will change a lot a be more versatile and will probably be very different from what we have now.

The deckbuilding will also be heavily modified. Instead of having 4 gold, 6 silver and 15+ bronze with a maximum of 3 copies per bronze card, we will get a provision system (each card will have a cost and your deck cannot exceed a maximum value) and you will not be able to have more than 2 copies of bronze cards. All decks will have exactly 30 cards. Card pools for each faction will be adjusted to have 68 (+ 4 leaders) cards in each faction (thus, some cards might be removed, this will be the case for Dagon and Radovid which will return later and we will also get some new cards), there will be 133 neutral cards. The total cost to build a deck should not be significantly different from now. They also want to keep faction identity. (ST will use ambushes and traps, SK will be the faction with the more interactions with the Graveyard...).

With all these modifications, there will be a "soft" reset: we will keep everything except our cards. When the update will be released, your collection will be entirely milled (for full mill value - Use this link to estimate how much scrap you will get) . This mean you will receive 800 scraps for each gold card, 200 scraps for each silver card, 80 scraps for each rare card and 30 scraps for each common cards (more if premium). We also get new starting decks. This is intended in order to let you choose what card you want to craft first according to the new abilities. You will also have to play through the new tutorial and also have to play through the new "challenge" to unlock the leaders.

The leveling and ranking system will change. We will get a new level/rank based on the previous system so we don't loose anything. They also want to add new things to encourage people playing more when they reach the maximum level.

Right after Homecoming, we will also see the release of Thronebreaker. It's a singleplayer adventure with roughly 20+ hours of gameplay. in which you play with Queen Meve. It's an adventure game like The Witcher but battles are done with Gwent battle. It will be independant from the Gwent client to allow non-Gwent players to play. This singleplayer adventure will also add new cards to multiplayer for all factions. You don't need to buy the adventure to get the new cards but you need to buy it if you want to unlock the premium versions of these cards [may change]. Like The Witcher adventures, there are different endings depending on your choices. You will be able to replay the adventure and there will be different levels of difficulty. The price has not been announced yet. We will be able to pre-order it. You can find everything we know about Thronebreaker here.

it might convince me to dive back in if word is good. i'm definitely playing thronebreaker though. if i haven't made it clear, card game pve challenges are my jam. no, i have not ascended to 20 in sts yet.

while digging around, i found at least 4 new digital card games all advertising about the Blockchain. so that's a thing.

i might buy lotr:lcg ea but impressions are not good. i still have faith in fantasy flight digital for arkham horror!!!!!!

artifact beta got delayed and shortened to a week before launch. doesn't seem to bode well, but select hearthstone/mtg/gwent pros are convinced it's the second coming of christ, so i guess we'll have to wait and see. wish i was a select hearthstone/mtg/gwent pro invited to alpha.

this mobile only adaptation of warhammer age of sigmar: champions seems ok: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... gmar&hl=en
this "demontide" seems like a hearthstone ripoff but designed for pve? might waste time on it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... .demontide

also i lied, disgaea 5 releases in an hour
