The creators of Spelunky and Getting Over It talk about Sexy Hiking and ‘B-games’

Sexy Hiking, by JazzuoSexy Hiking was the original game about having to climb obstacles with a hammer controlled by a mouse. Sexy Hiking does beat Getting Over It in one particular category, however, and that's the title. Other than Sexy Hiking, the best ones are Sexy Hand and GM Golf. I recommend his other 'Sexy' game, Sexy Hand II, which is a golf game with a similarly unusual control scheme, and GM Golf which is like a fusion of Sexy Hiking and Sexy Hand.

Hearthstone’s Ben Brode: “If you knew how good a card is by looking at it, we wouldn’t need a balance team”

I don't know that those cards are necessarily good in the decks that are already powerful for Warlock right now. The Brode Backstory Read about the rise and rise of Ben Brode in our recent feature profile. I do think that's a concern. If it was easy, if you could tell how good a card is by looking at it, then we wouldn't need a balance team. Blackhowl Gunspire Arguably the biggest meme card in The Witchwood set, but a lot of fun and the art is lovely.
