Toy Soldiers: War Chest brings rainbow doom to the diorama

War is an unrelenting gauntlet of hell, I think, watching a band of heavily armored rainbow ponies spill over a grassy field. Bursts of mortar fire end their horror-trotting advance, but the opposing men can’t replenish the ammo quickly enough to…

Drakerz Brings The Digital Card Game To Your Webcam

With games like Hearthstone bringing more players to the digital card game space every day, Drakerz seeks to take things to the next level.

Using webcams to bring cards to life in an augmented reality battleground, Drakerz is looking to provide an immersive DCG experience by bringing cards to life before battle. While the full experience requires a webcam, players can also opt to play without one if they are at a PC that doesn’t facilitate integrated play.

While the concept isn’t completely new (Eye of Judgment for PlayStation 3 comes to mind), it’s something that may indicate where things could be going, especially with virtual reality on the rise. Drakerz is currently available on Steam.

 

Our Take
I'm always excited to see established genres trying new things. We'll see if systems like this one are unique, user friendly, and add something special to gameplay – or just gimmicks to differentiate products in an increasingly crowded DCG market.

Ubisoft Brings Collectible Card Game Might & Magic: Duels Of Champions To Console

With all the buzz around Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering, Ubisoft decided to broaden the audience for its own collectible card game. Might & Magic: Duels of Champions has been out in a free-to-play format on PC and mobile devices since last year. Today, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers can dive in.

Ubisoft has announced a new version of the game, sub-subtitled Forgotten Wars, for Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. The $ 9.99 title includes 30 single-player missions, local competitive play, online play, and 650 cards. 

(Please visit the site to view this media)

The title does include in-game transactions that allow players to purchase more gold (for acquiring cards), competitive decks, and expansions (of which four are available now). The game includes a full deck-builder, and there are no random packs (what you see is what you get).

The gameplay is similar to the PC and iOS version, but the monetization and progression are different. If you want to see what the gameplay is like before putting down your $ 10, you can setup a PC or iOS account for free and learn to play.
