Popular PC Game Makers are now putting up games to be more sociable so that they will scale and last longer in the market than story type RPG. At this point of consumerism guided times, grabbing games and making your friends play it has now taken much less of an effort thanks to the advent of Game Portals like Steam, etc. We admit it that it comes really great but has downside to that -- When we are on a tight budget. And I'm sure some of you are too.

Blizzard, the maker of the very popular game titles Diablo, Starcraft, Warcraft (the cradle of Dota 1 and all of your loved ones' groans and pains) and World of Warcraft (which once became the most played MMORPG) is now rolling out their own Game Portal, Battle.net. And in case if it's too hard for you to connect the two things... It will also contain their created games (obviously) and will act as the game portal from now on. The client is now in it's Open Beta phase and available for the Mac and PC. Now for your information, the company was already using Battle.net. They integrated Battle.net inside their games to connect fellow gamers all over the world but the feature proved to be unpopular since it did not come easy for others.

The release of the new Battle.net client has also brought upon to us the open beta release of one of our very anticipated game - Hearthstone. Hearthstone is a fast paced card game in which all the elements in it came from the World of Warcraft. This is when you WoW (World of Warcraft) fans already stopped your hours of grinding and just want to play the game casually. New gamers that do not have any experience about any card game and even WoW should not worry. The game is very easy and simple, seriously, don't worry. I think any user having their sanity in tact can play around the game nice and easy. I, myself, as a newbie card game player went around the game easily. Yes, I messed up on my first online match which you can see at the video below. Feel free to make fun but take a good look at the good interface!

Card collecting and mixing them out in your custom decks really added the excitement. The game is also very interactive and the game art is really good, thus compiles to a very well made game. And here's to hoping it's built to last for a very long time, because we believe in that!

At this time of writing, Hearthstone is now sending out Game keys to those who signed-up for the open beta relase and letting excited gamers from the North Americas and Southeast Asia to first play the game. The game is so fun and even comes great with this required minimum machine specs:
