Attention all Hearthstone fans! The release date for the Grand Tournament has been officially announced by Blizzard. The latest update to Blizzard’s wildly successful online collectable card game, Hearthstone, will officially arrive on August 24.
- The only exception to this date is Asia, which will be able to play Hearthstone, Grand Tournament on August 25.
The Grand Tournament will feature an brand new game mechanic called Inspire. When you use your Hero Power you will trigger Inspire which in turn will provide you with a benefit like stat gains, additional minions, new abilities and much more. What happens with inspire is all based on the description of the particular card you’re playing. Ultimately, Inspire will now give you more reasons to use your Hero Power and provide a new way for you to defeat your enemies.
Grand Tournament will bring with it 132 new cards to the game, which will now provide players with a reason to spend all of that gold and dust that they have been hanging on to. Along with the new cards there will be a new board to play on and a new game mechanic called Jousting. This new mechanic will have players draw and reveal one card from their decks, the player who draws the higher cost card will be the winner. If you drew the joust card and win, then you will gain the additional benefit from that card’s description.
This is Hearthstone’s second major expansion and it looks to be a lot of fun. For complete information head to Blizzard’s Hearthstone Grand Tournament page.
With wearable technology slowly working it’s way into our everyday lives, it was only a matter of time before we got man’s best friend involved. This new futuristic dog collar called Buddy, is the ultimate must-have gadget for geeky pet owners.
‘Buddy’ will keep track of just about everything you could ever want to know about your dog, starting with temperature. No longer will you have to wonder if your dog is getting too uncomfortably hot or cold, you will now know the exact temperature of your four legged friend. In the event that your dog does get to hot or cold ‘Buddy’ can actually link into your Nest thermostat to have the temperature automatically adjusted.
With Geofences, you will be able to set a perimeter that your dog is allowed to be in by simply using an app for either iOS or Android. Once your dog leaves the perimeter that you set up, you will be notified with an alert. Even better, ‘Buddy’ will include GPS tracking so you can know exactly where your dog is.
To keep your pup in top shape, the Buddy collar will also include an activity tracker to measure how much exercise your dog is getting. This feature could also benefit some owners as it will persuade us to get up and get active with our pets. Need to know how much your pet is eating? Well, it keeps track of that too. How about appointments with the veterinarian? Yes, it keeps track of this information as well.
And last but certainly not least, it’s quite stylish. The Buddy collar has customizable LED lights that can be adjusted to pretty much any color you can imagine. Plus, having a well lit Buddy collar is great for safety as it provides ample night time lighting so drivers and cyclists will not only see you, they will see your pet as well.
All of these features of course are going to come at a premium, after all this isn’t your basic everyday pet store collar here. If you back the Buddy project early you will get the collar at a discounted price of $180 US. If the collar is fully funded and released for purchase, it could set you back approximately $450.
