Marvel Snap will speed up card progression on January 31st

Marvel Snap is excellent, and when you first start playing it chucks new cards at you faster than a confused magician. That slows down once you’ve got a few hours under your utility belt, but developers Second Dinner have some changes in the works that should make rarer cards easier to snag. If you’re saving up for a particular card from the Token Shop, it’s worth checking whether it’s one of 9 cards that are about to get cheaper. The first “Series Drop” is due to land in an update on January 31st, which will also add a mode that…

Best of 2022: Elden Ring, and Sherif’s other GOTY picks

In which I explain why 2022’s most obvious pick also happens to be the best game I played all year. It’s that time of year again, when we all tell you which of the games that came out over the past 12 months we like the best. It’s my turn, and I hope you weren’t expecting some out-of-left-field pick; an artsy indie game you never heard of that I’ll try to convince you is 2022’s game of the year. That’s not me, unfortunately. Someone more cultured will probably have more interesting picks, but I am a man of simple pleasures….

Card games are boring, so how did two of them become my favourites of 2022?

I’ve been banging the ‘card games are boring’ drum for years, so I didn’t expect to be spending so much of my game time this year with two of them. My problem with card video games is the same one I have with digital recreations of board games: the appeal of executing a mechanic is a large part of why I engage with video games, and that’s precisely why games with cards don’t do it for me. See, most games with cards in them have already decided the specifics of the move. The intricacies of every action are predetermined. Your…

Marvel Snap is working on letting you play with friends

Plus an unranked mode and more are on the way too. Marvel Snap will soon let you play against your friends, so that way you’ll have a companion you can say ‘just one more’ with. It seems like you can’t go five seconds without Marvel Snap appearing somewhere on the timeline at the minute. Only problem is, you can’t play with your friends, other than through a happy accident. But as revealed in a new roadmap, Battle Mode vs Friends is being introduced some time in the future. Though an exact launch date hasn’t been provided just yet. The new…

Marvel Snap is better than it has any right to be. It certainly is too good for the likes of me: a strictly single-player person who much prefers a cosy PlayStation exclusive with exploration and narrative and not a single other human being getting involved to ruin everything. But I couldn’t stay away, could I? Because you lot wouldn’t stop going on about it. And now I have a permanent imprint of…
