This week Hearthstone’s controversial Heroic Tavern Brawl finally went live, giving players the chance to pay an entry fee of $10 or 1,000 gold to compete for big in-game prizes. For those familiar with Hearthstone’s existing modes, Heroic Tavern Brawl is essentially a high stakes version of Arena, only you have to use a single Constructed deck to win up to 12 times. As soon as you register three losses, you’re booted out. The controversy has come from the fact players only really break even in terms of rewards if they hit around five wins, which is no small task, and has led some to complain that Blizzard is being too greedy with the structure. With that said, it should be noted that 1) this is a niche mode intended for serious (don’t laugh) competitors, and 2) it’s only a one-week experiment for now. To see what the fuss is about, three of PC Gamer’s resident Hearthstone players blew the dust off their credit cards and ventured inside...Tim … [Read more...] about How hard did Hearthstone’s Heroic Tavern Brawl kick our asses?

It's no secret that Maxis' The Sims has been immensely successful since its release in January of this year. The game manages to take designer Will Wright's unique gameplay philosophy of creating your own world to a level never before attempted by anyone, and the results are better than anyone expected.

This success can be attributed to The Sims' broad appeal and accessibility.

GameSpot broke the story on this add-on a few days before E3 in an interview conducted with the game's executive producer, Sinjin Bain.
