[PSN Review] Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, Deck Pack 1

November 27, 2012 | | 5 Comments

Wizards of the Coast and Stainless Games have released the first deck pack for Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013. This expansion adds just two decks to the roster (bringing the total to seventeen, for those who are counting), but its price tag is a paltry $3 USD. Anticipating the next expansion for paper Magic (Gatecrash, due out February 1, 2013), this electronic pack adds decks that use color pairs that will be featured in Gatecrash: Boros (red and white) and Simic (green and blue). The new decks are fun, if rather expected, and they provide a cheap fix for more Magic on the PlayStation 3.

[PS3 Review] Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013

August 20, 2012 | | 10 Comments

Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 (released to PSN on June 19, 2012) is Wizards of the Coast’s latest entry in what is apparently becoming a franchise with yearly sequels. As with Duels 2012, the game’s release teases the release of the latest Core Set of cards in the world of paper Magic. Duels is ultimately a casual introduction to Magic that is designed to increase the audience for the Magic universe at large. Full disclosure: Duels 2012 performed precisely that role for me. I am now an avid player of paper Magic with a large library of physical cards and a few tournaments under my belt.

So how does Duels 2013 stack up to its predecessors, Duels 2012 and Duels 2009? (Click for our reviews of both of the aforementioned games, as well as for the major D12 expansion and deck packs.) In a word, D13 continues Wizard’s tradition of improving on these casual video games, making D13 a great purchase. Those who are curious about the world of collectible card games should absolutely check out the game, and even long-time aficionados of Magic should have fun with it (though they might experience some frustration as well). Are you new to Magic? D13 might just be your “gateway drug” to a new addiction, just as D12 was a year or so ago for me!

[Review] Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, Deck Packs 1 – 3

January 30, 2012 | | 7 Comments

Wizards of the Coast and Stainless Games have released one expansion set for Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012. (We reviewed the game and its expansion.) Since that time, they have released three sets of two additional decks (six decks total), bringing the entire list of decks to a rather impressive nineteen. I was disappointed that Wizards did not advertise these most recent additions. I’m here to bring them to your attention and to give you my take on what’s worth buying and what isn’t, as each of the three deck pack DLC is going for 3 USD on PSN.
