Seasonal Vacation - Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage - Finale

It was fun while it lasted, but sadly our Seasonal Vacation must come to an end. With the aid of our superflame, we make short work of our adversaries and tie up all of our pending loose ends.

And once all pending tasks have been cleared, we'll be free to relax and soak up a few rays at Dragon Shores. Spyro's been dying to go their since the start of the trip, and it's about time we indulged our little dragon pal.

Legends of Runeterra - Card Games and Conversations

As someone with next to no interest in League of Legends, and someone who has been following news regarding Riot over the past few years, I was originally going to pass on Legends of Runeterra.

But as people I knew started playing it, and talking positively about it as a game, beyond being a good League of Legends tie-in, I grew intrigued. Now that I've tried the game myself, I've been having such a good time that I wanted to talk about it.

Making Magic in the Arena - Grixis Discard

Once more, we find ourselves venturing into Magic: Arena, this time with a deck I've fallen in love with for Theros standard. People who know me know that one of my favorite color combinations in Grixis, and we have a concoction that best shows off what it can do: Grixis Discard.

I can't claim credit for the deck though. The idea came from Dev from Strictly Better MTG, whose deck tech you can check out here.

My formula for this list is only slightly different from his, but it's still mostly the same deck. You can find my list here.

Seasonal Vacation - Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage - Part 3

Despite the serenity of the home world we now reside in, not all is well within the world of Avalar. Even discounting Ripto's machinations, there's plenty of trouble brewing between the local residents of each world. And we're just the right shade of purple dragon to deal with their problems.

Or at least play them off each other enough to make a profit.

Making Magic in the Arena - Mono Black Devotion

Theros: Beyond Death has finally arrive to Magic: Arena, and with it a whole host of new and returning cards and mechanics. One of those mechanics is Devotion, and no card is more representative of Devotion's power than one of the MTG communities old favorites: Gary Asphodel.

And with Gary back in Standard, it's only natural that mono-black devotion is one of the most commonly built decks in the new format. Like many others, I was also eager to hop onto the Gary train.

I took the decklist I was using from here, but it appears to have been modified in the time since.

Seasonal Vacation - Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage - Part 2

As the winter chill sets in, and snow starts to fall on the ground, what better time to continue our Seasonal Vacation in the realm of Avalar with our good buddies Spyro the Dragon and Sparx the Dragonfly.

With the permanent superflame, we're sure to have a significantly easier time helping the various citizens we encounter along the way.

A Quick Run - Hades

With the impending release of Theros block in Magic: The Gathering, and having heard a lot about how the game has changed since I last played, I figured now was a good time to dive back into Supergiant Games's latest work, still currently in Early Access: Hades.

Like Elspeth and so many, many characters in Greek myth, let us attempt to escape the underworld.

Seasonal Vacation - Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage - Part 1

The plan after finishing Crash was to run the new Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 content with Chris, but I foolishly forgot that I had uninstalled the game some time ago.

So instead I decided to start playing Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage. Welcome to the magical world of Avalar, where we've been summoned to toast a new threat. And naturally, with new challenges comes and expanded arsenal.
