Asher’s Video Game Reviews

Hello fellow Gamers, and welcome to another game review. Today, I will be covering the insanely addicting title, Slay the Spire. Slay the Spire is a Deck-Building Roguelike that was developed by MegaCrit and published by Humble Bundle. It was released as a full game for the PC on January 23rd, 2019. The game has you play as one of three characters, whose main goal is to slay the titular Spire. Every run is randomized, and it is up to the player to decide which route to take. Each icon on the map has a different meaning, which I will quickly describe now. Monster faces mean that you will have a battle with a random enemy. A question mark means that a random event will occur. It can be anything from obtaining a powerful relic, to losing health, and more. The money bag space is the easiest to figure out, as it brings you to a shop. At the shop, you can buy more cards, potions, relics, and remove a single card from your deck. The horned monster is an elite enemy battle. These battles are much tougher than normal ones, but always drop relics upon being defeated. The last important space, is the fireplace. At these spaces, you can either heal for a small amount, or upgrade a single card. At the end of each dungeon lies a powerful boss that you must defeat using the various abilities gathered on your run. The combat is turn by turn, and you always get the first move. You start with 3 Energy, which means that you can use a variety of cards , but they must equal 3 or under. You also get to see what the enemy’s next action will be, so you have time to prepare for it. The cards are grouped into many different categories. Attack cards do exactly that, and may have some additional effects added to them. Block cards allow you to guard a certain amount of damage for that specific turn. Colorless cards are the rarest types, and can be used in any deck, no matter what character you play as. There is also many status effects in the game. They include; Vulnerable (A character takes 50% more damage from attacks for a set time), Weak (A character deals 50% less damage for a set time), Frail (A player has the amount of block per block card reduced), Poison (Deals the amount of damage on the card, and it reduces each turn), Confusion (Each card you draw has its cost randomized), Artifact (Negates one status effect) and Intangible (All damage is reduced to 1 for this turn).  Each character has its own set of strengths and weaknesses, and you must use them to create a powerful deck. The characters start out with a small sized deck, but after every battle, they’ll get a new card to add to it. The three characters are as follows; The Ironclad, The Silent, and The Defect. The Ironclad starts with a relic that allows him to heal 6 health after every battle. He is mainly a strength-based character, and many of his cards allow him to increase his strength, and deal some absolutely devastating attacks. He also has the highest amount of starting HP. The Silent is the Rogue of the game. She starts with the lowest amount of HP, and a relic that allows her to draw 2 extra cards every draw phase. She has access to some incredibly fun poison skills and deadly shivs. The last, and probably most fascinating characters is The Defect. The Defect is an ancient automaton that has a deck centered around Orbs. The Orbs are passive abilities that trigger and the end of each of your turns. You must be able to find out how to use these orbs in conjunction with one another in order to master this character. In conclusion, this is a deceptively easy game that will keep you playing for hours and hours. Final Rating: 9.5/10

Asher’s Art Gallery

Hello fellow Art Lovers. It’s time for another art post. I hope you guys are ready for some awesome paintings. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • Paradoxs of the Witching Portal by Larry Carlson Archival Pigment Print on paper

This is a beautiful work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor piece that seems to be made near the brightest part of the day. This can be shown by the gorgeous blue sky and partial clouds. There’s also two female figures on either side of the piece. Unlike normal people, these figures don’t have any facial features, and are instead replaced by cosmic rifts in the space-time continuum. Overall, an absolutely fantastic piece.

 

  • Medijate Vibrate by Larry Carlson Pigment Print on Paper

This is an extremely trippy work by “Computer Guru” Larry Carlson. Unlike a lot of his other pieces, this one only incorporates black and white. Fortunately, this doesn’t make it any less awesome, and the way both colors works is quite admirable. The whole piece is drawn like an optical illusion that moves when your eyes move. I also love the hidden face in the center of the painting.

Since the newest expansion is all about dragons, this card would work wonders in it. Now that Dragon Hunter is a viable deck, this card could provide a nearly endless amount of spells to help support it. Also, Discovering this card amongst other powerful dragons can really this card as well.

  • Magic Toad by Cardmaker1 Type: Shaman Epic Minion Appearance: A toad with a pissed-off look on its face and a luminous green body. Tribe: Beast Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 3 Health: 2 Effect: Battlecry: Transform an enemy minion into a 0/1 Frog with Taunt.

This card is guaranteed to anger your opponent in the best way possible. Having a card that is essentially Hex with a body. The cost is perfectly balanced as well, and could definitely see play in the current meta.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • Malevolent Trickster by Shoemanband Type: Warlock Neutral Minion Tribe: Demon Mana Cost: 3 Appearance: A blue female demon with chaotic power. Attack: 3 Health: 3 Effect: Battlecry: Shuffle 3 Worthless Imps into each player’s decks.

I find the “Worthless Imp” mechanic to extremely underrated in Hearthstone, and this card could make it have a lot of value. The imps not only add more cards to your deck, but can also stop “Duplicate Decks dead in their tracks.

  • Treasure Hunting by Patticake Type: Rogue Epic Spell Mana Cost: 7 Appearance: 2 treasure hunters running away from a massive demon. Effect: Fill your hand with cards from other classes.

This is an amazing card that totally plays into the Rogue mechanic. Burgle Rogue is one of the most fun types of decks to play in the game, and this fits that to a T. The amount of value you can get out of this is incredible, and I’d love to see it become a card in the real game.

More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • Pet Cemetary by GrandInquisitor Type: Hunter Neutral Minion Appearance: A cemetery with a foreboding atmosphere. Attack: 0 Health: 4 Mana Cost: 2 Effect: After a friendly Beast dies, summon a 1/1 Skeleton. 

This is a very unique card that I could definitely see in a Beast-Oriented Hunter Deck. It essentially gives the player an effect similar to Reborn. You can also get some synergy with Starving Hyena and Stampede.

  • EVIL Cleric by PizzaYolo Type: Priest Rare Minion Mana Cost: 3 Attack: 2 Health: 4 Appearance: A corrupted cleric surrounded by tentacles. Effect: Whenever a minion is healed, add a random Lackey to your hand.

This card is extremely potent in many different Priest decks. Lackeys are much more useful than people give them credit for, and this could be meta defining.
