AFK Today 12/2/2022

 

Hope you’re having a great Friday, and hope everyone still has money in their wallets after Black Friday/Cyber Monday 💸💸 This week we’ve got a Hearthstone update, Warhammer 40,000 is finally out, and Callisto Protocol had a less than stellar release. Let’s dive into it.

Hearthstone: March of the Lich King Releasing Dec. 6th

Two new sets of cards along with a new death knight hero are coming to Hearthstone in the March of the Lich King expansion next Tuesday. Just like the demon hunter release, the death knight class will come with a core set available immediately for all players. But it will also have a new set called Path of Arthas, which must be purchased separately. Death knight decks have special deck-building restrictions called runes, with each card being up to 3 of any type of blood, frost, or undead runes. By selecting a total rune type for your deck, you will be able to use those card-types, allowing different card combinations. To see more about the official release, check out Hearthstone’s website here.

 

Warhammer 40K: Darktide Out Now

Lots of hype was built up around this futuristic Vermintide successor. The developers at Fatshark have stepped up their game a lot since then, and the early reviews look optimistic. Albeit there are a few noticeable issues that have been mentioned by the community. Two of the most serious are performance issues and the cosmetic cash shop. We will have to take a look at the game before we give any major feedback. See more about the initial release and first patch from PCGamer.

 

The Callisto Protocol, An Underwhelming Release

The Callisto Protocol was just released December 2nd and it's not looking so hot. After rendering almost unplayable for PC players, there has been severe community backlashes nicknaming it “The Stutter Protocol”. When the performance isn't broken, the game itself is rather stunning. As the developers work on a hotfix, we can come to appreciate the game for what it's meant to be. The Callisto Protocol is a creepy 3rd person survival horror game set 300 years in the future at Black Iron Prison. This prison is located on Jupiter's Moon, Calipso, where inmates begin to transform into monstrous creatures. With the prison in utter chaos, you must fight your way through and defeat the horrors lying in wait. Uncover the secrets of the United Jupiter Company and experience the isolation of Jupiter’s dead moon.
