Hearthstone’s esports scene continues to grow, with Blizzard set to grow both the number of top level tournaments held in 2020 as well as the prize money up for grabs for those competing.
Hearthstone has come a long way from the in-house side project it started as. It’s consistently the most watched card game on Twitch and it’s intensely popular at the competitive level. It also seems to be an endless font of new content. Now, the game's 12th expansion, Saviors of Uldum, looks to spice up the 5 year old game with new keywords, card types, and story.

We've listed all the Class Halls added in World of Warcraft: Legion, including their locations and any lore surrounding them. From the rustic lodgings of the hunter class to an ethereal temple for priests, you can find all twelve Halls in the below list.
Who is Athena? Could she be a god program with unfathomable power? A creation of the world’s smartest simian? Or maybe she’s linked to the mysterious Sombra? Blizzard has left us some clues to follow, so let’s see what we can unearth about this mysterious AI in Overwatch.
The Silent Hills remake is dead. Drama has plagued developer Konami in recent months, stemming from its weird kinda split with legendary game designer Hideo Kojima. The split has been played out in the media in the worst way possible, thanks to the awkward silence between both parties. There is still a lot of story to be told about this game. But there’s plenty of other games with crazy cancellation stories. The following are three such games.
