My Favorite Video Game Songs #13 – Slow Edition

With the season in full bloom, it doesn’t make the most sense to make a post about slow songs this time of year but I couldn’t help myself. Generally I consume a lot of more upbeat music but I definitely remember the slower songs that make an impact to my ears. For all the folks out there that prefer slower music this list is for you.

The Greatest YouTuber of All Time (as of 5/17/2018)

Today I asked myself the question: who is the greatest YouTuber of all time? By this I ask which channel produced the most quality content in a quantity amount of years. While one can analyze this perhaps by statistics such as total views and peak trending, you can also wager in a lot of subjectivity.
In this article I will give my pick for this title as well as give some reasons for why I find this channel to edge it above the rest.

Deck Borrowing is a Premium Feature in Card Games

Last month when the Witchwood expansion of Hearthstone dropped it quietly added a new mechanic called deck borrowing when playing with friends.

The Importance of an Icon in Gaming

Today marked the departure of one of the most charismatic dudes that became a legendary icon for the popular video game Hearthstone. His departure is due to his desire to develop his own game (hell yeah!) and I wish him success for that journey. His name is Ben Brode and he was the director. Ben Brode was more than the man behind the development structure of Hearthstone. He was the face of the game.
