Currently Playing: Hearthstone

Part review, part diary, all Cactus – in Currently Playing I share what has been going on in my gaming life lately!

currentlyplayingGaming, like every form of entertainment in my life such as reading and watching TV, has it’s ups and downs. Some weeks I might not boot a game at all, while others I cannot be torn away from my screen. One game, however, has been pretty constantly played by me throughout the last year – Hearthstone. This card game by Blizzard, featuring various characters from the Warcraft franchise is one of the coolest casual games I’ve had the pleasure of playing.

Read Play Blog: September

Read Play Blog is a meme about video games and books, posted every 16th of the month. Bloggers are encouraged to answer a discussion question, and recommend a video game that is similar to a book they liked. Hosted by Happy Indulgence & Read Me Away.

This month’s question:
What is your preferred gaming platform?

I’ve actually barely played games on consoles. Growing up I had a Gameboy Colour, and until we got a PC that was the only medium I ever played games on. I think my preferred gaming platform now is definitely the PC, mainly because it’s just so easy. Moving a camera with the mouse feels way more natural to me than having to control it with a stick on a controller. There are also so much more games released on PC, and Steam is my very best buddy. I also still love to play my old Pokémon and Harry Potter games on my Gameboy Advance or Nintendo DS.

Currently playing:

Since school started again I’ve barely had time to play games (although I somehow did find enough time to read like crazy). I’ve mainly been playing Hearthstone because it’s such a casual and fun game to play between studying. The best thing about Hearthstone is that it’s free – even though you can pay for the collectible cards, I personally find it way more satisfying to play for them.
