Is Blizzard teasing another expansion for Hearthstone? It appears like they are.

Blizzard has only released one real expansion for Hearthstone since the game’s release, which was the Goblins vs Gnomes expansion. While adventure updates do include new cards, there is only a small amount added to the game and so they do expand what is available card-wise in Hearthstone, it isn’t like a full expansion such as Goblins vs Gnomes which added 150+ cards. It appears that Blizzard may be teasing yet another expansion for Hearthstone, this time themed with pirates and ninjas.

Nvidia’s New Device May Be A Hybrid Of PC And Mobile Gaming

Nvidia Shield 2 rumors have been reported on DroidGamers among many other sites. The newest rumor is that Nvidia is working on something that will connect to TVs via an HDMI cable. While the Nvidia Shield is capable of this, the new device would require an additional controller, which is in line with the recent Shield Tablet rumors. However the controller is said to be a budget controller, though personally I hope they don’t sacrifice too much in the way of usability and comfort for the sake of giving the lowest price possible.

Is Amazon looking to get into the console business with one of their own?
