Hearthstone: Why Next Week’s World Championship Will Be One of a Kind

Hearthstone: Why Next Week’s World Championship Will Be One of a Kind

Next week, 16 of the best Hearthstone players in the world are heading to Taipei for the Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) Finals. Running from April 25 – 28 (local time), the tournament is the culmination of a full year (and then some) of fierce competition, but it’s going to be so much more than that. This year will be the most unique competition Hearthstone has ever seen, and I absolutely can’t wait. For a big chunk of the player base, the most exciting part of this year’s World Championship is probably the fact that it’s taking place after the Standard rotation. What does that mean? Well, when the first set of cards in a new calendar year hits the game, three old sets rotate out. This means 135 new cards come in and 400+ old cards go out. It’s a huge shake-up because a lot of the existing strategies rely heavily on those 400+ cards, so are lost altogether or drastically re-worked, while a whole lot of new archetypes emerge. It also means that the new set has a big impact, because it’s a larger percentage of the overall card pool than the expansions later in the year. Continue reading…

Doom Patrol Introduces DC's Weirdest Supervillain

Doom Patrol Introduces DC's Weirdest Supervillain

Warning: Full spoilers for Doom Patrol Season 1, Episode 10 below. If you need a refresher on where we left off, here’s our review of Season 1, Episode 9. In terms of sheer tonal variety, this week’s Doom Patrol might be the show’s wackiest to date. “Beard Patrol” introduces one of the most bizarre villains in the entire DC Universe, even as it sheds light in the tragic past of Niles Caulder and steers the team toward their inevitable showdown with Mr. Nobody. A lot of shows might struggle to balance such extremes of silly and serious subject matter, but it’s all in a day’s work for Doom Patrol. Continue reading…

How Douglas Booth Channeled Nikki Sixx for Netflix's The Dirt

How Douglas Booth Channeled Nikki Sixx for Netflix's The Dirt

Check out our review of Netflix’s The Dirt. Netflix’s The Dirt turned out to be an entertaining trip down memory lane. Centered on the exploits of Mötley Crüe, the film transported viewers back to the ‘80’s – a time when a rock star’s uniform consisted of colorful, skintight outfits, make-up, and teased hair – while providing an informative look at one of America’s most notorious rock bands. And though it didn’t present every memorable event or depict each milestone as accurately as one might have hoped (as most biopics go), the film still proved to be a worthwhile watch. Continue reading…
