Faeria In-Depth Early Access Preview

Faeria In-Depth Early Access Preview

As a well versed player of digital CCG’s Faeria is a game that instantly feels familiar to me. Upon launching the game up for the first time I find myself looking at the cards and even before I play my first game everything makes sense in terms of understanding the mechanics of the cards, which although under different names are shared with other digital CCG’s I’ve played in the past.

That is until now.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta – First Impressions

I didn’t know quite what to expect when I installed this game for the first time. Bioware are a company that have proven time and time again that they know a good story and how to tell it but until now have never produced anything on the scale of an MMORPG.
