All New Hearthstone Whispers of the Old Gods Cards Revealed So Far [Update 8]

Update 8: Blizzard has announced a Whispers of the Old Gods release date, stating that the Hearthstone expansion will launch on April 26 across North America for PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices. In Europe and Asia, the latest card collection will ship one day later, on April 27.

Along with this announcement, eight more cards have been revealed; two for Hunter, two for Mage, one for Druid, one for Priest, one for Rogue, and one common Legendary. Blizzard has now revealed 71 Whispers of the Old Gods cards, of which the total is expected to reach 134.

Update 7: A fresh batch of new Hearthstone cards have been revealed for the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion, chief among them being a new Legendary ten-mana Deathwing with a 12/12 body and the eye-opening battlecry of summoning all dragons from your hand.

Another neutral legendary minion, Soggoth the Slitherer, is a nine-mana 5/9 taunt card that is immune from spells and hero powers. More new Whispers of the Old Gods cards include a two-mana Priest spell that makes heal effects deal damage instead for a single turn, as well as a six-mana Rogue card that appears to be supporting mill strategies.

Mage also now has two mid-sized minions, one of which casts a random five-mana spell and the other summons a three-cost card. Finally, a strong one-mana Warlock minion has been revealed with a deathrattle that summons a 1/1 minion.

On April 21 at 10am Pacific, Blizzard will host a special live stream where, at the very least, it will showcase a number of new cards.

Whispers of the Old Gods will launch during a time of major changes to Hearthstone. A new mode, called Standard, will be introduced and phase out old cards. Click here for the Best Hearthstone Cards Leaving Standard.

EU lodges formal antitrust complaint against Android

The European Union has notified Google of formal antitrust charges against the company relating to its Android mobile operating system. The charge sheet focuses on the company’s prioritizing of its own services on Android devices, including practices that mean that Google Search is “pre-installed and set as the default, or exclusive, search service on most Android devices sold in Europe.” The EU’s investigation, which was originally opened last April, claims that this and other measures prevent companies from effectively competing with Android.

Star Fox Zero Launch Trailer Sets Up Big Battle With Andross

Nintendo has released the launch trailer for Star Fox Zero, which will be available on Wii U this week. The video sets up the game’s story, in which ace anthropomorphic pilot, Fox McCloud, assembles a team to take on Andross, a primate intent on ruling the galaxy.

The video goes on to show the various transforming vehicles team Star Fox will be using to defend the Lylat System, and we also get a look at how the Wii U’s GamePad works with the TV.

To mark the launch of Star Fox Zero, Nintendo is planning to debut a new Star Fox animated short called The Battle Begins. A clip from this was posted on Twitter, and you can see it here.

The Battle Begins will be streamed in full on Wednesday, April 20, at 3 PM PST through Nintendo’s website. The video was produced by Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto, alongside Japanese anime and media companies Production I.G. and WIT Studio.

Nintendo has confirmed the Star Fox Zero release date as April 21 in North America and April 22 in Europe. Project Guard, the Star Fox-themed minigame from E3 2014, has also been revealed as a standalone project.

Both games will be bundled together at retail for $60. The titles will also be available separately as a digital download; the main standalone game will cost $50 while Guard on its own will cost $15. Project Guard stars a new character called Grippy, who is Slippy Toad’s uncle.

Utah declares porn a public health crisis, hazard, and epidemic

In one of the more dramatic flourishes of legislative rhetoric, the American state of Utah has declared that pornography is a “public health hazard” of epidemic proportions. Local governor Gary Herbert signed a resolution on Tuesday that articulates the state’s belief that porn “perpetuates a sexually toxic environment [and] is contributing to the hypersexualization of teens.” The resolution is not a binding law, and its sponsor, state senator Todd Weiler, says that he’s not trying to ban pornography. He prefers to make an analogy to tobacco, whose harmful effects were widely recognized in the latter half of the 20th century and people withdrew from smoking without the need for an outright ban.

While it may seem superficially prudish,…

PlayStation Japan Releases Rap Song About New PS4 Games

PlayStation Japan has released a new music video collaboration with artist music tofubeats and Moga Mogami. Uploaded onto the PlayStation Japan YouTube channel, the song “DON! DON! DON’T STOP LINEUP!” highlights all of the upcoming new releases for the PlayStation 4 in Japan via rap lyrics set to some funky beats. Watch the unusual mash-up for yourself in the embed below.

This isn’t the first time PlayStation Japan has collaborated with tofubeats. The artist produced an impressive array of rap lyrics for the song “PS4 タイトルZOKUZOKU 2016” back in January, which highlighted all the upcoming PS4 games of 2016 in a single song.

In related news, recent online reports have alleged that Sony is working on a more powerful PlayStation 4, which would possess increased graphical capabilities, amongst other things. The PS4.5 will reportedly have an improved CPU, GPU, and RAM, and is codenamed “Neo.” Let’s hope PlayStation Japan releases a rap song detailing the upgrades soon.
