Missed the latest TGM (The GANG Minute) video? We got you covered! This week’s was a quick one.. Not really.
Be sure to read the full TGM newsletter here for updates on Steam game giveaways!
Summer Vacation – How Do YOU Spend It?
July 2014 is going to be epic for the GANG.. But we’re taking baby steps. It’s summer vacation for most of the world (well, at least here in the United States) so that means spending quality time with your family and loved ones.. And trying to stay sane. So how are you planning to spend your Summer, gang? Here at Geeky Antics we are going to squeeze in as much gaming as possible.. Many of us have fallen behind on our streaming but we will make up for it soon, we promise! After all, we can’t let all those awesome games we picked up at GOG, Steam, Humble Bundle, or wherever go to waste!
As I mentioned in the TGM video, we will be releasing new podcasts this Summer. Anyone into Doctor Who, Hearthstone, and/or game mechanics, amongst other topics should consider joining us!
Flash Fiction & Other Creative Writing Pieces Are LIVE!
Our storytelling area is officially live and in full effect. Right now, Stan Faryna (@Faryna) and J M Bell (@StartYourNovel) are our main contributors but we’ll also be featuring third-party stuff. We’re leaning towards lesser-known authors such as Wil Wheaton and Nika Harper. As always, this is our way of spreading the love and giving the “little guys” more UMPH.
Oh, and we have Monty Python! I know we have some aspiring authors/writers out there so don’t be shy. Share your creativity, fan fiction, and love!
…And now for something completely different…
Hearthstone Curse Of Naxxramas BREAKING NEWS
Blizzard finally got around to announcing their announcements and confirming the Curse Of Naxxramas pricing model. As confirmed by Polygon:
One wing will cost $6.99 or 700 in-game gold. Blizzard will be selling bundles for people who want to buy multiple wings at once. Those who start playing during Curse of Naxxramas’ launch event can pay $19.99 for the four wings following the Arachnid Quarter.
If you pay for each Curse Of Naxxramas installment on it’s own, you’re looking at spending around $28 so the “season pass” seems like a great deal. To clarify, there is one free wing to boot and then four additional ones. Blizzard will make this a month-long roll-out.. It will be EPIC!
As promised, here are the leaked Curse Of Naxxramas photos!
The photo quality may not be that great but there’s a few things to note. First and foremost, notice that boss with the 3-damage ability. WOW.. The Raise Dead ability is crazy. There is going to be an even greater value placed on board clear and hard removal now. Deathrattle is going to make things INSANE!
Feugen and Stalagg will be a major pain to deal with. The WoW fan fare is real. It seems like boss battles and challenges will be more like puzzles for seasoned players to figure out. With multiple modes, we can really test ourselves as CCG players.. This is going to be EPIC!
