So the big news earlier this week was that I have been working on a Heathstone stream, with a URL of http://www.twitch.tv/gocorral. I’ll be streaming tonight from 8-9PM Pacific time.
The current model is pictured above which I’ll be using to play tonight.
I tried to give the stream a consistent look with the game by taking all the extra pieces of the stream from Hearthstone.
The pack is a Hearthstone pack with the Hearthsteed on top.
The sign is taken from when the game is down for maintenance.
The Curse of Naxxramas art is taken from some of Blizzard’s own ads for Hearthstone.
The box surrounding the webcam image of my lovely face is taken from the main menu of the game.
I’m planning on streaming a playthrough of the new Naxxramas content once it is released. I’ll announce those streams as I get to them.
What is Hearthstone for the uninitiated? It’s an online card game put out by Blizzard, the same people who created Diablo and World of Warcraft.
Hearthstone is intended to be quite simple. They have an easy tutorial that teaches you how to play and each game takes about ten minutes or less.
If you’ve played any collectible card game before then its Hearthstone will be quite easy to pick up.
In the game your character is one of the main heroes from Blizzard’s Warcraft games.
Your hero has various spells, powers, minions, and weapons to help take out the opponent’s hero.
Both heroes start with 30 life which is slowly eaten up by the opponent’s hero and minions attacks through the game.
If you bring your opponent’s life down to zero then you win! There’s a celebratory image with ribbons and fireworks!
If your opponent wins then you can always play again.
I like the game a lot and would definitely suggest giving it a try. If you don’t like it, then you haven’t spent much time to learn that. If you do like it then we could play together!
My user name on the game is Jevaninada #1917. The game can be downloaded at http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/en/.
Again, my stream is July 20th (The night I’m publishing this) from 8-9PM Pacific time and the URL is http://www.twitch.tv/gocorral.
Thanks for watching!
