Off The Record 32: Why do we love collectible card games?

Welcome to what I like to call the CVG Off The Record Disastercast.

This week we are incredibly tight on time so we speed our way through the news, which includes topics such as the PS4 boosting Sony's performance overall, EA offering a Netflix like service for its games, Mass Effect 4 being years away and the drama around Crytek and Homefront.

After that we talk at length about CCGs, particularly Hearthstone and Magic The Gathering, and try to explain what it is about each that makes us love them and the genre. There's also some talk about Gods Will Be Watching.

Finally we answer your burning questions and provide some dating advice.

CVG Off The Record can be downloaded through this RSS link (Chrome users: switch to Firefox for a sec to do this). Android users can also paste the link URL into their chosen podcast application (don't forget the http) to subscribe.

The show will also appear on this iTunes page when Apple approves it (please subscribe, rate, and review us there so we feel better about ourselves).

If you're the sort of person who likes things direct, here's a direct link to the MP3 file so you can stick it on your media player of choice. Is that a Creative Zen? Time for an update mate.
