Conquest: Let’s take a quick look on Chaos in “”Gift of Ethereals””

So FFG just showed us the three Chaos card coming out with the War Pack – ”Gift of Ethereals” and if you didn’t already know I’m a huuuuuge Nurgle fan (my nick is Nurgleprobe and Nurgle among friends so… yea), and I love the fact that we will be getting more for our puss-and-plague-infected-kind. Let’s begin!

Conquest - nurgling bomb
I have some hate love for this card, cause it’s one that gives your opponent options and you never want the option to be in your opponents hands. Of course you can play this whenever you just need that 1 extra damage to kill something or hunt away weaker units. But… we’re not seeing a TON of weaker units at the moment. The marines are sturdy enough to probably take that one damage and stay and do a good fight. And to pay 3 resources for an effect that may work your way is not always that great. I would rather stick around with a card that makes sure there is damage happening or something that makes sure that the enemy is routing.

Oh and it wont… hurt your Nurgle units. So that’s a thing.

Maybe this may end up being good in late games when there can be bigger masses of units at the planets. I’m also not sure if I like this more or less than Warpstorm at the moment. Sure it hurts you as well but 2 damage to everything that they can’t run away from… I like.

Conquest - rotten plaguebearers
Why do I love this card, cause he can do his effect at many different opportunities. He is one of the few cards that can virtually fight at a planet without having a warlord there. Which means that he is great for being around planets where you just want those resources. Killing of weaker enemies that are trying to do same.

Not sure how bananas this will be in the long run, but having a card that can do his damage even before ranged units… I would not laugh at that before I get a chance to try it.

Oh and also, they can damage Ku’gath for you, so if you know for sure that you will have the first action and want to make sure that Ku’gath has a damage to move around, you can also do that. And the reason for this? It’s 1 damage more or less anyway? The difference: Ku’gaths moving of damage can not be shielded. So… yea. That’s a thing.

Conquest - throne of vainglory
I love putting out tokens, and I sure love making small annoying units hat has to be taken care of. BUT, I do not enjoy the fact that it’s something that MAY trigger. And something that may remove a card you very well may need for your next action. You can combo this with a few other effects in the game that want cards in the graveyard. But overall I think this card is kind of a miss if you don’t try and build around it. And well… maybe that will be a good thing.

And if you’re gonna try, remember that those tokens that you put out make deamons cheaper, which means you could build around that and make sure that you have 2 extra resources every turn. Tho, remember that you can also lose by not having any cards left in your deck!

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

Netrunner News – SanSan Cycle – Chrome City – A few new cards!

Hello everyone.

Here we are to look at a few new cards from the third pack in the SanSan cycle, let’s see if they look any good.

brain-cage
Okay so I just want to being by saying: I truly never think taking brain damage is worth it, not for any kind of effect (well unless you win the game but this wont win the game on the spot). Even tho you lose 1card in hand size, you gain 3. So basicly… you gain 2 when it’s all said and done. I’m in general not a big fan of a card that gives you a bigger handsize, it doesn’t give you an advantage in it’s own right and sure it can build up for other kinds of combos, but I’m not really sure there is any kind of combo in the game that needs this card that’s worth it. We even have a resource card in the game at the moment that gives us the same effect (but is not being played anywhere important as far as I know) and that is Public Sympathy. A nay for me.

net-ready-eyes
If we just ignore the damage part of this card which I think you actually should… more or less. This is a card that makes plenty of the standard Ice Breakers alot better (Yog.0 for example that can’t naturally be buffed). But that also of course depends on the ice your facing and if you’re often one strength of from being able to interact with the ice. Getting that one extra strength to brake through somewhat stronger ice can be a game changer at times. This card even saves you money the longer you have it on the field and the bigger need you have to buff your cards.

chrome-parlor
You want to put this card in your deck just to make a few other cards better. No, not wasting card space, resources or time on that.

cybernetics-divisionself-destruct-chipsryon-knight

I’ve put all these cards up at the same time and the in same text cause I just love to see them as a unit. Each card in itself has a pretty good effect and they mix and match incredibly well to create a strong game plan.

The new identity may not look like much, but in a way it automaticly puts 1 brain damage on the runner at the beinning of the game. Which is awesome and also very strong against Andromeda if she can’t get plenty of cards out on the first turn (yea the chances of that happening is low… but still).

Then we have the Agenda that ALSO acts like a brain damage, working great in combination with the identity and the new card Ryon Knight which just seems… incredibly good. Mixing it with some ice that forces your opponents to spend clicks is now great. As a Runner you will have to think about what will happen if Ryon is at a certain location. Thinking about if they have to stop after spending a few clicks and at the same time if you’ve put in resources to make a run… you will want to complete it. Right?

In general I just love the gameplan of lowering your opponents hand with cards that are not in themself horrible. I can definatly see myself trying out a HB deck once this pack is out.

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

Battlefleet Gothic coming to PC

It’s finally happening!
Empire: Total War was never a big hit out there in the world, but I’ve always wanted it becuase of the awesome sea battles. Ever since I started playing video games I’ve always been facinated with armadas or big ships fighting it out. I’m not sure where this facination comes from but I just love to see a crew work together to fight against another crew. Positioning, team work, speed and heading always being key to victory.

When I was younger of course I found myself facinated with the game: Battlefleet Gothic. It took the armadas up to space and it looked marvelous. As I was also a huge fan of miniature games back then of course this game spoke to me. But I never got a chance to try it, it was hard to find miniatures and boxes for it, nobody really played it, it was just something that I hade a chance to read about in magazines.

But here it is, my chance to finally fight space battles in the Warhammer 40k universe. From what I’ve gathered from the very lacking information you will be able to play Imperial, Orc, Chaos and Eldar fleets and your crew will level up inbetween missions and/or engagmenets.

The game will be created by Tindalos Interactive. Let’s hope this game WONT be canceled…

Mojangs new game: Scrolls – Open beta!

Logo_of_Mojang's_game,_Scrolls

Hello Nurglings!

So it’s finally time for some non-MTG-related news again, how about that? Awesome I know! So you may have heard of this game known as Minecraft (created by a well known man called Notch). You may also known that the company that stands behind the game is known as Mojang. Well Mojang is working on a completely new title called: Scrolls.

If you heard about the game from before, it may be that you heard about their fight over the name with Bethesda. Creators of the game: Elder SCROLLS V: Skyrim. Yup they wanted to be exclusive with the scrolls part of the name and took Mojang to court. You can read more about that here: http://kotaku.com/5828135/bethesdas-lawyers-object-to-name-of-minecraft-creators-next-game (It’s old and settled tho!)

MOVING ON

Scrolls is a game that’s been in a closed beta for a long time, but NOW on June 3d the game is going in to open beta! Which means that everyone can get a piece of the action. I will be looking in to the game as soon as a download button appears and you’re welcome back to read a review and even watch me live stream the game (if allowed) after the 3d.

The game itself is a mix of a collectable card (scrolls) game where you collect, buy and trade scrolls with other players. These scrolls are then used to create decks that you use to fight your opponent. The design of the playing-field reminds you a lot of the old Heroes of Might & Magic games, where you use unit position and magic to beat your opponent. The details on how the game is played and such will be up as soon as I try the game out.

New Pokémon spinoff game – Pokémon plus Nobunaga’s Ambition

Hello my Nurglings!

So I was checking around on the net, and visited Pokébeach.com. It’s been awhile since I took a long proper look on the news on that site so I scrolled down for awhile. One of the things I found about just about blew my mind!

I love samurais and I always find it hard to hold my wallet back when I see some new game or movie based around them. I always back out in the end cause I need to be somewhat conservative with my money. But this time… I don’t think I can. I need to get myself a 3DS, why?

Cause Pokémon + Samurais just became very real! In a very new spinoff game of the very popular Pokémon game series. What I really should say is the name: Pokémon plus Nobunaga’s Ambition (created by Koei). Koei is a company also known for games like Kessen and Dynasty Warriors, it’s interesting how they just added the names and a plus between them to create this games name; Pokémon plus Nobunaga’s Ambition.

The game seems to have a play style more similar to games like Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics. Where you control your Pokémon on a map to complete objectives and fight other Pokémon “trainers” (?). Giving another type of RPG feel to Pokémon that feel’s very interesting.

So… I can’t wait for this game! The completion between PSV and 3DS may just have turned in 3DS favor!

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

Tanto Cuore Expansion – Soon in English!

Hello my Nurglings!

I feel so bad that I haven’t done my review of Tanto Cuore yet. It’s a Japanese deck building game where you as a master of your house hire maids and build up you’re… house. It’s a fun and quick game and it’s been up to play at my local store several times. People love the style and theme of the game and adding that it’s a fun game just makes it more awesome. It’s becoming more and more competitive though, as we start getting passed the awesome theme and in to the strategy behind the game.

Anyway happy news! They are currently translating one of the expansions to the Enligsh version! As it is now it may even be out this December (or if not hopefully early next year), and this is how it looks:

This is what Arclight has to say about the game:

The long awaited English expansion to Tanto Cuore!

Tanto Cuore: Expanding the House, both a standalone game and the first expansion for Tanto Cuore, brings a garden theme to the world of maid-collecting, with construction cards such as “Garden”, “Lily Garden” and “Leaving”.

Tanto Cuore: Expanding the House includes 280 cards, with artwork from 27 artists.
