Marvel War of Heroes Review: CCG By The Book

This is the third in what was going to be an open-ended installment of reviews of iOS CCGs. This week’s entry is one I was looking forward to: Marvel War of Heroes.

Star Wars Force Collections: The Force is Weak With This One

Rage of Bahamut — A Model of iOS Collectible Card Games

In all my time with MMOs and RPGs, there’s one related genre I’ve more or less neglected to really look into: CCGs.

iOS Getting In On The Next Generation Of EverQuest With Lame Marketing

Any MMORPG player who knows their genre history knows of EverQuest, the first real “break out” MMORPG. Before there were WoW junkies or OnC wonks, there were EverQuest widows abandoned by old school players grinding in Norrath. While many people remember the failure of its sequel, EverQuest 2, the fact is that the original EverQuest…(Read the full article)
