Magic: The Gathering has explored worlds ruled by despotic dragons, a celestial pantheon who wage war on each other using mortals as pawns, and a race of biomechanical horrors. Its latest set introduces perhaps the most terrifying threat yet: spell-powered teenagers. Strixhaven: School of Mages dropped on Magic: The Gathering—Arena on April 15, inviting players to their first day at the multiverse's preeminent arcane university. Proving much more than just a Harry Potter knock-off, Strixhaven's whimsical setting proved immediately popular with players. The new set introduced a host of fresh faces along with a very familiar one , three new mechanics (or four, if you're pedantic), and a peek into the near future of the world's most popular collectible card game.

New students align themselves with either Silverquill, Lorehold, … [Read more...] about Magic: The Gathering—Arena wants you to go back to school

That means it’s at least 2023 by the time we see Sam and Bucky again. Sam, though, narrows down Falcon and The Winter Soldier’s place in the timeline by handing over Captain America’s shield in a ceremony. During his … [Read more...] about Where does Falcon and The Winter Soldier fit in the Marvel timeline?
The best gaming routers now deliver better than ever before. With Wi-Fi 6 here, the promise is for network speeds of up to 6 Gbps, able to keep up with the latest in faster internet speeds. While many ISP’s offer a router, their rental fees get expensive over the longer term, and for the best gaming experience, it is a more effective solution to upgrade, go on your own and get one of the best gaming routers.

We're just a week and a half away from Hearthstone's first expansion of 2021, and there's a lot to look forward to. March 30 marks the beginning of the Year of the Gryphon, which is when we'll see the Rise of Shadows, Saviors of Uldum, Descent of Dragons, and Demon Hunter Initiate sets rotate into Wild. Basic and Classic cards are also rolling out of Standard, replaced by Hearthstone's new, free Core Set , which consists of 235 cards. The year's first expansion, Forged in the Barrens , will also release on March 30, and Blizzard has given us 10 keys for The Forged in the Barrens Mega Bundle to give away. Forged in the Barrens focuses on WoW's Horde faction, which is made up of tauren, orcs, and the Quilboar—we can expect to see all of those groups pop up somewhere in the new set. We'll also see the introduction of a new mechanic called Spell Schools. This retroactively categorises spells under tags like 'Arcane,' 'Frost,' and 'Holy' to make way for another layer of … [Read more...] about We’ve got 10 copies of Hearthstone’s Forged in the Barrens Mega Bundle to give away
