The Queue: Wait, I actually enjoyed playing Hearthstone Mercenaries?

I’m as surprised as you guys! I mean, I literally didn’t want to play it, I just did it because our beloved EiC Liz Harper made the point that I should probably give it a shot if we were going to talk about it during the podcast. And then I did play it, and… I kind of liked it? I mean, it didn’t become an obsession or anything, but I enjoyed the experience and I felt like this is what the Garrison mission table should have been — not just selecting characters and sending them off to fight, but actually controlling them, choosing how they attack and what tactics they use.

I mean, it’s not particularly deep, but I’m not even past level 7 yet, so we’ll see how it feels once I get better at it. Regardless, I actually had fun playing it and I’m not adverse to continuing to play it.

Oh, and I’m listening to L7’s Pretend We’re Dead as part of my I’m awake at 4 am and I need music to function playlist. It’s also got Wolves Without Teeth by Of Monsters and Men on there, which is pretty dang good, you should try that out.
