  • Corey Jones Interview at the HEX Invitational

    Over the weekend, Irvine-based HEX Entertainment held its inaugural eSports event for its popular new trading card/MMO HEX: Shards of Fate. The fledgling event proved a success, drawing HEX fans from around the world to the Santa Ana eSports Arena to watch the best HEX players battle it out for their share of the $100,000 prize pool. During the action packed event, we grabbed HEX Entertainment CCO Corey Jones and wrung a few answers from him regarding the new tourney.

  • Invitational Wrap Report

    Sunday morning in sleepy Santa Ana, California saw HEX fanatics lined up outside a modest red brick building, chattering excitedly and no wonder. Day two of the HEX Invitational was about to begin and at the end of it, one player would walk away not only with HEX Master bragging rights, but $40,000 in deck-expanding cash.

  • Entering the World of Entrath - Part 2

    Hex: Shards of Fate has recently left its beta status behind and launched a major feature update. Garnering a lot of press in the meantime has led to a lot of new players coming over from Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering to see what this “new” kid on the block has to offer. In Part 1, I went over what a Magic: The Gathering player can expect coming over to Hex. In this part, I’ll be discussing what a Hearthstone player will encounter, and boy, is it ever going to be different.

Garnering a lot of press in the meantime has led to a lot of new players coming over from Hearthstone and Magic: the Gathering to see what this “new” kid on the block has to offer. I say “new” in quotes because Hex is over two and a half years old since the Kickstarter, but slow going, and a lawsuit from Wizards of the Coast have slowed things down.

  • Chronicles of Entrath Hands-On Preview

    Last week, HEX Entertainment invited a handful of journalists to its Irvine office to try out the pre-release single player PvE campaign Chronicles of Entrath, from its trading card game/MMO, HEX. After roughly an hour and a half with the new mode I can say without hesitation that it's turned me, a jaded MMO veteran, into a TCG enthusiast.

  • Taking TCGs Into New Territory

    Perception might be that trading card games are strictly for Magic-and-Yu-gi-oh-obsessed uber-geeks, but in recent years the audience for TCGs has seen a lot of growth. While hardcore TCG-ers remain the backbone of the TCG market, developers hope to increase the genre's draw with a more accessible digital format. At the forefront of this movement is HEX Entertainment, whose upcoming TCG/MMO hybrid HEX, is poised to take TCGs to an entirely new place.

  • Mechanics of the Armies of Myth

    HEX: Shards of Fate. By now you’ve probably read tons of articles on the game. You know the gist. It’s a Digital TCG, in the same vein as Magic: the Gathering, only radically different once you get under the hood. Being digital brings a whole new level of things they can do with the simple card game mechanics. Things that would be incredibly difficult, if not downright impossible, to do for a traditional, in-person, card game.

  • The MMOTCG We Deserve

    Cory Jones of Cryptozoic and HEX Entertainment sat down virtually on Skype with me last week to give me my first taste of HEX: Shards of Fate. For those unfamiliar, HEX is one of Kickstarter’s first big success stories. Funded by fans and backers for over 2 million dollars back in 2013, now two years later HEX is getting closer and closer to its initial goal of being the first “MMORPGTCG”.

  • Cory Jones Dishes Alpha Details

    When I first saw Hex:The Shards of Fate, it was knee deep in the trenches of a very strong Kickstarter campaign and well on its way to completing another stretch goal. But the samurai bunnies and ogres were still waiting to manifest in a playable version of the game. Quite a few months have passed since then. Now that the Kickstarter is done and the alpha is in full swing though, it was time to see the core game functions in action.

    We already covered our all-around most wanted MMOs of 2014 last week, but did you know there were a boatload of Indie MMOs also releasing this year?

Read on for our list, and be sure to comment and let us know if you agree or have something we missed to boot.
