Hearthstone's Newest Tavern Brawl Experiments With Co-Op Play

about X hours ago from

You can now see what it's like to team up with another Hearthstone player in a limited time co-op challenge.

Tavern Brawl is a weekly event in Hearthstone that (normally) pits two players against each with specialized rules, cards, and sometimes pre-built decks. This week's Tavern Brawl is the most unique challenge yet, tasking both players to team up in order to defeat a powerful boss named Gearmaster Mechazod.

Surprisingly, Hearthstone's layout doesn't change for the fight – players still sit on opposite sides of the table. Instead, Gearmaster Mechazod  appears as a regular minion on the table, and will flip sides on each turn to attack the opposing player. Both players will have to use pre-built decks to attack Gearmaster Mechazod and try to keep their teammate alive – if either player loses, the match is over. The good news? Whether you take down Mechazod or not, both players will be rewarded with a Tavern Brawl card pack.

Blizzard appears to be making efforts to retune three of its best games for contemporary machines. A company job listing directly references pillar titles of years gone by.

“Compelling stories. Intense multiplayer. Endless replayability. Qualities that made StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II the titans of their day,” says the job listing for a senior software engineer for classic games. “Evolving operating systems, hardware, and online services have made them more difficult to be experienced by their loyal followers or reaching a new generation. We’re restoring them to glory, and we need your engineering talents, your passion, and your ability to get tough jobs done.”

If you think that’s you, the job listing is available on Blizzard’s website. Consider this our thanks in advance.

Bioshock Halloween Party Brings The World Of Rapture Topside

about X hours ago from

Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow, especially when it results in one of the coolest themed Halloween parties ever? Two Bioshock fans proved they were born to do great things with their own festivities.

The Bioshock party was thrown together by Daniel Hoppes and Haley Johnston, who attended the event as villainous splicers. Friends and family joined in for a costume contest, the winners sporting Big Daddy and Little Sister outfits complete with glowing lights from inside the massive helmet.

The event evidently spared no expense in recreating every fine detail of the Bioshock universe, including damaged splicer masks, neon lights for plasmid advertisements, and even that classically unsettling execution scene of one of Fontaine’s smugglers.

A Lost NY Arcade Comes Back To Life In This New Documentary

American arcades seem to be a bygone relic of a different era. A new documentary hopes to shine light on New York City’s legendary Chinatown Fair arcade.

The Lost Arcade, a documentary by Kurt Vincent and Irene Chin, explores how the arcade became a “shelter to the community as diverse as the city surrounding it,” according to the film’s webpage

Chinatown Fair first opened up in 1944 as a penny arcade, springing to popularity when the home-console boom began to wipe arcades from the map. The arcade’s prominent reputation drew in players like fighting game champion Justin Wong and others.
